Even more Iron Maiden concert dates have been revealed for 2024. On their Future Past Tour, the heavy metal icons will visit Australia and New Zealand. According to NME, the group will perform in both cities in September 2024. The gigs will begin at Perth’s RAC Arena on September 1 and end at Adelaide Entertainment Center on September 4.
The quartet will then perform at Brisbane Entertainment Center on September 10 and Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on September 6 before wrapping out their Australian tour at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on September 12. They’ll also travel to New Zealand for just one performance on September 16 at Auckland’s Spark Arena. The Killswitch Engage concert will open each of the performances in Australia and New Zealand. On Wednesday, October 18, Iron Maiden will host a special fan club pre-sale for its members, followed by a general sale on Tuesday, October 24.
The band had originally planned to visit Australia as part of their Legacy the Beast Tour in 2020, however the COVID-19 epidemic ultimately forced the band to cancel that trip. The band’s manager, Rob Smallwood, was quoted by NME as saying, “We promised everyone at the time that we would come back to Australia. We always abide by our commitments.
He stated, “We’re really excited to bring this incredible new spectacle to the Southern hemisphere and give our devoted Australian fans the finest Maiden experience we can. You can rest assured that the wait was worthwhile. Their most recent tour is to promote the album Senjutsu from 2021.
Bruce Dickinson, the lead singer for Iron Maiden, has also debuted his first brand-new solo record in almost two decades. The frontman’s first solo album since Tyranny of Souls in 2005 will be The Mandrake Project, which will be released in 2024. Dickinson intends to include extra dates for a tour in support of the new record in addition to her nine-date trek across Mexico and Brazil in April 2024. On social media, Dickinson declared, “We’re planning to play as many shows as we can in as many places as we can, for as many people as we can.”
