IRON MAIDEN RELEASE NEW BROOKLYN ART, MORE TICKETS AT BARCLAYS CENTER ON JULY 27TH

With Iron Maiden’s Friday Brooklyn show SOLD OUT the band have acted quickly to satisfy fan demand by releasing seats in all price categories starting at $49.50 plus booking fees. They have also released Flight of Icarus show art to coincide with the debut of their latest live video clip, which can be seen here. The 1983 song from the Piece of Mind album was Maiden’s biggest airplay track in America and has not been performed live since 1986 – it being resurrected for this tour with Bruce Dickinson equipped with a pair of flame-throwers onstage.

The band’s triumphant first leg of the tour opened in Europe last year to outstanding critical acclaim, not just by over three quarters of a million fans who came to see the show but right across national press and rock media, including The Times (UK) newspaper calling it “..an extraordinary show filled with world class theatrics…a masterclass in performance and staging.”

Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson comments:

“We’re excited to return to North America and unveil the Legacy Of The Beast Tour to all our friends there. We’re immensely proud of this show and we’ve had great reactions from the many fans who came to see us in Europe last year. The production is based on our mobile game The Legacy Of The Beast,which basically takes various incarnations of Eddie into many different Maiden Worlds. This inspired us to put together a stage show to take our fans through unique Worlds and experiences set to appropriate songs. It is not that easy designing different Worlds on stage and we put a huge amount of time into this to make it work and the end result we feel is our most spectacular and certainly the most complex show to date. We’ve got all kinds of crazy things going on, including a replica Spitfire plane dominating the stage during Aces High, tons of pyro, a giant Icarus,  muskets, claymores and some truly marvelous flame-throwers which I have a hell of a lot of fun with, as you will see! And of course we have Eddie, as you’ve never seen him before, and absolutely loads of other surprises. I’ve had the time of my life playing with all these magnificent props on stage, it’s been fantastic, we can’t wait to bring this show to you.”

Steve Harris, bassist and founder member adds:

“We gave a lot of thought to the set list for this Tour as the songs needed to follow the narrative of the changing worlds of the stage show. We feel we ended up with a very strong and well balanced set mixing songs we haven’t played in many years like Flight Of Icarus, Sign Of The Cross and The Clansman with songs we know the fans want to hear like The Trooper, 2 Minutes To Midnight, The Number Of The Beast, Fear Of The Dark, Run To The Hills, Hallowed Be Thy Name and others, reflecting the journey through the different themes of the show. The whole band is really enjoying this tour and we are really looking forward to seeing everybody in North America again.”

For the majority of the 2019 shows, Iron Maiden will, in conjunction with the Promoters, be implementing a digital ticketing system in as many venues as possible. This technology, being used by the NFL among others, is a progression of the paperless system that Maiden have been successfully using since 2010 and has worked well in lessening ticket scalping and the drain of prime tickets into the Secondary market. The band do not want their fans having to pay over face value for their tickets.

Fans in the USA and Canada will once again be able to enjoy a Trooper VIP Upgrade package allowing early access to the venue, a pile of Trooper goodies, Trooper beers, food and a designated area to meet with other fans, plus the opportunity to win some great prizes. Packages will be available from ironmaiden.com priced at US $220 ($290 CAD for Canadian shows), with a 10% discount for Iron Maiden fanclub members.
