Iron Maiden will continue their phenomenally successful Legacy of the Beast Tour into 2020 with dozens more shows.
In late September, the metal legends announced two headline UK festival shows for summer 2020 - Download Festival on Friday 12th June and Belsonic at Ormeau Park in Belfast on Monday 15th June.
Since the early hours of this morning (7th November), Iron Maiden have been drip-feeding new 2020 tour dates to their legions of fans on social media.
Maiden have confirmed their first 2020 shows will take place in Australia and New Zealand in May where they will be joined by Killswitch Engage for six arena shows.
Following this, they play a trio of arena dates in Japan and Pulp Summer Slam festival in the Philippines, before hitting Dubai and Tel Aviv in Israel at the end of the month.

The tour was extended into 2019 with further international shows in North America and South America from July until October.
The Legacy Of The Beast World Tour is inspired by Iron Maiden’s comic book and mobile phone game of the same name, and, in keeping with this, the stage set design features a number of different but interlocking ‘worlds’.

1. Aces High
2. Where Eagles Dare
3. 2 Minutes to Midnight
4. The Clansman
5. The Trooper
