Iron Maiden push back European Legacy Of The Beast tour to 2022
The heavy metal legends will now be bringing their awesome Legacy Of The Beast show to the masses in June and July 2022 due to coronavirus, with manager Rod Smallwood admitting, “Naturally the band are hugely disappointed; a second summer without touring, especially with this very special Legacy show, is very hard to take.
“They send their best wishes to you all, knowing full well you fans will feel the same,” he continues. “As we all know, realistically there is no alternative so we will all make the best of it and spend the time preparing for a very memorable and even more spectacular Legacy tour next year, we promise! Until then keep safe and keep smart.”
