Iron Maiden has released a new video in which the bandmembers discuss what it has been like getting back out on the road as part of the “Legacy Of The Beast” tour.
Iron Maiden kicked off the 33-city North American leg of “Legacy Of The Beast” on July 18 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.
Drummer Nicko McBrain recently said, “When you’re there in the flesh and you see this incredible stage set and the production we put into this show, you’re going to be absolutely astounded.”
The concept for the “Legacy Of The Beast” tour was inspired by Iron Maiden’s mobile game and comic book of the same name. The stage set design features a number of different but interlocking “worlds” with a setlist covering a large selection of 1980s material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.
Tour Trivia: Stage props include a Spitfire buzzing the stage during the opening number, “Aces High”. The plane is a 90-percent-sized replica of an actual Supermarine Spitfire Mk Vb registration number AA 853 from 302 Squadron that saw active duty in 1941.
