Iron Maiden To Focus On “Senjutsu” & “Somewhere In Time” Tracks On Newly Announced European/UK Tour


Legendary British heavy metallers Iron Maiden have begun lining up their 2023 touring plans. Next year will see the group embark on ‘The Future Past Tour‘, focusing on previously unperformed songs from their latest album “Senjutsu” and a look back at their 1986 platinum-selling album “Somewhere in Time“.

The group’s bassist Steve Harris had the following to say of the band’s plans:

“Following the release of our latest album, ‘Senjutsu‘, we updated the current Legacy of the Beast Tour a little by opening the show with the first three songs from it, with the Japanese Palace stage set. As it doesn’t make a lot of sense to repeat this for a ‘Senjutsu‘ album tour, we thought about other options and we’ve decided to revisit ‘Somewhere In Time‘ as that tour didn’t feature in the various retrospective history tours we’ve played over the years.

They were based on our 80’s concert videos and sadly we did not film that tour (blame the manager!!). We have had lots of requests from fans over the years for many tracks on it so we are now going to play them, plus of course a few others we know you will like! It will also be particularly satisfying to finally get to play some of the more epic tracks on ‘Senjutsu‘, it’s been a long wait! 2023 is going to be an exciting time and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone again in the UK, Ireland and around Europe.”

Tickets for the tour will go on sale to the general public next Friday, October 14th at 09:00am. Members of the band’s fan club will be given a pre-sale option ahead of time.
