Iron Maiden have announced a new tour for Summer 2023 including a gig at Manchester Arena.  The Future Past Tour will feature seven UK and Ireland dates, finishing with a huge London O2 Arena show.

The Future Past Tour will feature previously unperformed Iron Maiden songs from the band’s most recent studio album Senjutsu along with a focus on 1986’s iconic Somewhere in Time.

Speaking about the tour, founding member and bassist Steve Harris said, “Following the release of our latest album, Senjutsu, we updated the current Legacy of the Beast Tour a little by opening the show with the first 3 songs from it, with the Japanese Palace stage set. As it doesn’t make a lot of sense to repeat this for a Senjutsu album tour, we thought about other options and we’ve decided to revisit Somewhere In Time as that tour didn’t feature in the various retrospective history tours we’ve played over the years. They were based on our 80’s concert videos and sadly we did not film that tour (blame the manager!!).  We have had lots of requests from fans over the years for many tracks on it so we are now going to play them, plus of course a few others we know you will like! It will also be particularly satisfying to finally get to play some of the more epic tracks on Senjutsu, it’s been a long wait! 2023 is going to be an exciting time and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone again in the UK, Ireland and around Europe.”
