Iron Maiden confirms a return to New Zealand on their spectacular Legacy of The Beast Tour.
Iron Maiden will return to New Zealand in May 2020 to perform at Spark Arena, Auckland on May 13 for one show only on their Legacy of the Beast World Tour with special guests Killswitch Engage.
Tickets go on-sale on Thursday 14 October at 10am NZDT.
The Legacy Of The Beast Tour is being hailed by fans and media as the most extravagant and visually spectacular live show of the band’s touring to date. The decades-spanning set-list of fan favourites and hits has garnered career best reviews around the world. The legacy of Iron Maiden continues to grow with some of their fastest ever selling tour tickets and sell out headline stadium, arena and festival shows across Europe and North, South and Central America.
The band has visited 39 countries around the globe since the tour opened last year, playing to close to two million fans, including headlining a capacity crowd of 100,000 at the legendary Rock in Rio festival in Brazil.
President and CEO of TEG DAINTY Paul Dainty said “We can’t wait to bring Maiden back to New Zealand for this tour, the reviews from overseas are absolutely phenomenal. This band is hotter than ever, and this pinnacle of new production is next level spectacular!”
Maiden’s last album The Book Of Souls reached Number 1 in an astonishing 43 countries. Iron Maiden are one of the most influential and revered rock bands of all time, and The Legacy Of The Beast Tour is their most spectacular and biggest production to date.
Joining the Legacy Of The Beast Tour the multiple Grammy Award nominated Killswitch Engage first shook the structure of heavy music upon climbing out of snowy industrialized Western Massachusetts in 2000. A musical outlier, the band pioneered a union of thrashed-out European guitar pyrotechnics, East Coast hardcore spirit, on-stage hijinks, and enlightened lyricism that set the pace for what the turn-of-the-century deemed heavy. The group has garnered three consecutive Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, and their total streams have exceeded half-a-billion to date.
New Zealand get ready, the best metal tour of 2020 is coming your way, the Legacy Of The Beast Tour lands in Auckland at Spark Arena on 13th May. Don’t miss it!
