Steve Harris has said many times that Iron Maiden has no intention of retiring—and the group is again backing those words up with a new tour announcement.

Iron Maiden’s 2018 Legacy of the Beast World Tour will kick off on May 26 in Tallinn, Estonia and dates are currently listed up through late summer. As things now stand, the band has plans to play venues in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Hungary, Holland, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Poland, Northern, Ireland, Scotland and England, with their last current show being scheduled for Aug. 10 in London, England. (SEE LISTING BELOW.)

The upcoming tour is based on the group’s Legacy Of The Beast mobile game and comic book. With this as its inspiration, stage design will include several different interlocking “worlds” and a set list of many of their songs from the 1980s—with a few surprises thrown in from later albums.

“As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with “History/Hits” tours,” Iron Maiden’s manager Rod Smallwood said in a statement.

“For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie!” he added. “I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.”

Most of the tour’s tickets will go on sale on Nov. 24, with a special presale option open to fan club members starting Nov. 20.
