Iron Maiden is returning to the Xcel Energy Center next summer for their 'Legacy Of The Beast Tour'.

The show is August 26th and tickets go on sale starting Friday, November 16th at 10 AM at LiveNation.com. Iron Maiden fan club members will have an exclusive presale, information about that can be found at ironmaiden.com.

The first leg of the Legacy Of The Beast Tour open earlier this year in Europe and played to over 750,000 metal fanatics.

Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson said in a press release, "We're excited to return to North America and share the Legacy Of The Beast Tour with 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 earlier this year. The production is based on our mobile game 'Legacy Of The Beast Tour' 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 marvelous flame-throwers which I have a hell of a lot of fun with, as you will see!"

Clearly, he is excited about this tour. The last time Maiden came to Minnesota was in 2017 with 'The Book of Souls World Tour.'
