The concept for the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour was inspired by Maiden's mobile game and comic book of the same name and the stage set design will feature a number of different but interlocking "worlds" with a set list covering a large selection of Eighties material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.

Maiden manager Rod Smallwood explains further: "As our fans know, we've been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with 'History/Hits' tours. We enjoy working this way for many reasons, not least because it gives the band a chance to play both new material and the older favourites which we know fans like to hear. It keeps things fresh, not just for the fans but for the band too.

"For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie! I don't want to give too much away at the moment but we're working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show."

I kind of wish they would do a tour that gives their 90s records some love. I really want to see the band play songs like Judas Be My Guide live.

Depending on the setlist, I might go to the Lisbon date.

Looking at the Tallinn and then a ferry trip to Helsinki for the other Maiden Gig

Yeah, a bit of a shame that they chose not to continue the History tours with the 90s material. The next part of the History of Iron Maiden series should be up soon.

But I might go. Now would be the ideal time to "go in blind", not knowing what the setlist is beforehand.

Will see, maybe London
I've just came back from Damnation Festival in Leeds, still got to see Vader this year in late decemeber in Poland. Cannibal Corpe in march, propably Vader again in april but this time in London with Testament!
So many bands to see and so little time
But Iron Maiden is one of those i would love to see!
And I see the blade fall down upon the head of lord in heaven
And Darkness falls upon the end of history
While I drink the milk of the Black Goddess and cry over the mankind

Black Moses is my name...
