Iron Maiden are finally going to tour the UK. Posted on their official website:

This will be an extensive 10 city arena tour for the final run of dates on their FINAL FRONTIER WORLD TOUR 2010/11. For the first time in many years, the band will be playing shows across the full length and breadth of the UK, including places they've not visited for up to three decades!

Steve Harris comments; "Everything in the Maiden camp has been so full on these last five years or so that we haven't travelled around the UK to play for our home fans for almost that long. These fans supported us by coming to Twickenham Stadium, Reading and Leeds Festivals, Download and more recently Sonisphere so we thought we should get off our backsides and do the travelling this time and get round the country to see them all. We very much look forward to playing all four home countries and a couple of places we haven't been for a very long time, Aberdeen and Belfast! And playing the O2 gets us as close to the East End of London where Maiden started off than we have been for many a year, probably since the Ruskin Arms! All in all l think this is going to be a very special series of shows and a wonderful way to end this whole world tour.

"We intend to take the full stadium show into the UK arenas and fit everything we possibly can into each venue. The set list will be different to this year's tour. Of course we will play more songs from the new album and some other recent material, but we intend to include a healthy dose of older fan favourites too for those who haven't seen us before, plus a spectacular light show and stage set, not forgetting, of course, …Eddie!
"

The UK shows will be the culmination of The Final Frontier World Tour, which began in June 2010 with a hugely successful 25 date tour throughout North America, followed by selected European stadium and festival shows, including Knebworth Sonisphere in the UK. As recently announced, early next year Ed Force One will fly the band, crew and equipment 50,000 miles around the World visiting thirteen countries before the band take a short break prior to the extensive European Tour (more announcements soon) of which the UK is the final leg.

As always we hope to facilitate "First To The Barrier" for our fan club members at as many shows as possible, details of these will be announced nearer the time on this website.

There will be an exclusive first ticket pre-sale for Iron Maiden Fan club members, before tickets go on sale to the general public on Saturday November 20th. Please keep checking this website for updates about ticket sales and further information about the special fan club pre-sale.

Woah, never expected the biggest metal band in the world to undertake such a meticulous tour.. there's a show in Aberdeen FFS. the whole city has less inhabitants than a normal Maiden concert in South America.

Yes, with Dream Theater, while Portnoy was still drummer.

I missed it. To this day I kick my own ass.

Oh geez, that sucks...

The last time Maiden played the UK, I missed it, but that was just a one off show in Twickenham. They haven't done a proper UK tour since I last saw them in 2006. I really hope they have a decent support act this time, but I doubt whoever it is will be of the quality of Dream Theater. lol

BASICALLY.

Naw. It's just that I don't think they were an appropriate band to open for Maiden. Maiden plays pretty uplifting stuff. DT just came out and pretty much played some of their crappy more recent singles.
Amatsu Mikaboshi - 12.11.2010 at 01:31  
Of course Maiden know where to exactly play at, luckily in Birmingham.

Fuck, I mean, I wish just recently now Exodus and Fear Factory could do that......ohhhhh
