Iron Maiden to play Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Saint Louis July 12

IN 2017!

25 SHOWS ANNOUNCED FOR THE U.S.A AND CANADA

 

–By Sean Derrick

Masters of metal Iron Maiden today announced a 25 show North American tour this summer that will make a stop in Saint Louis on July 12. The concert, to be held at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, will feature Ghost as the opening act.

The North American leg of the tour, entitled The Book of Souls World Tour, begins at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, VA on Barclays Arena in Brooklyn, NY.

The tour is in support of The Book of Souls double studio album, the band’s first ever, which debuted in the Top 5  in the U.S..

The tour brings back the British sextet to the States to play in markets they didn’t get to during last year’s leg of the tour. MAIDEN bassist Steve Harris commented; “We are really looking forward to returning to North America for a full tour. We had always planned to go back there and to the UK as last year, due to the global nature of the tour and the period it took, we just didn’t have time to cover them properly and we do still like to get to fans in as many places as possible! 

We will, of course, be bringing the full production with us including all the Eddies and the Maya-themed stage sets. There’s been a great reaction from everyone to this tour’s theme, people really seem to love it. We’re still deciding on the final set-list and we’ll work that out once we get into rehearsals. Most of our North American fans haven’t seen the show yet so as we want to give them the same Book Of Souls live experience that we took around the world, it’s unlikely we’ll change much. And of course we know our fans appreciate us playing a lot of the older songs too, so we will continue to do that!”

General public tickets go on-sale Saturday, January 28 at 10:00 am (CST) at LiveNation.com, the Gold’s Gym Box Office at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre Box Office, or by calling 800-745-3000.  As usual, there will be an exclusive pre-sale for IRON MAIDEN Fan Club members, details of which can also be found on www.ironmaiden.com along with information on how Fan Club members can participate in the draw to be “First To The Barrier”.

They will also feature the return of the hugely successful concept of the TROOPER VIP in which fan will be able to enter the venue early, get a pile of TROOPER goodies and MAIDEN swag, TROOPER beers, food and a designated area to meet with other fans, plus the opportunity to win some great prizes.
