LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) Iron Maiden brings its Legacy Of The Beast Tour to North America in 2019 for a series of arena and amphitheater shows produced by Live Nation, including a first-ever headline appearance at the Banc of California Stadium in LA.

The tour covers a total of 33 cities right across the U.S. and Canada, including Portland, Ore., where the band hasn’t played since 1987 on the Somewhere In Time Tour, Hartford, Conn., where they last played in 2005, and many other places not visited since the Maiden England 2012/13 Tour.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, November 16th at 10am local time at LiveNation.com. As always, there will be an exclusive pre-sale for IRON MAIDEN fanclub members. Go to www.ironmaiden.com for all ticketing details.

The band’s first leg of the tour opened in Europe earlier this year.

“We’re excited to return to North America and share the Legacy Of The Beast Tour with all our friends there,” vocalist Bruce Dickenson said. We’re immensely proud of this show and we’ve had great reactions from the many fans who came to see us in Europe earlier this 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 different Worlds and experiences set to appropriate songs. It is not that easy designing different Worlds on stage and we put a huge amount of work 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 marvellous 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, added, “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 again!”
