As part of their larger “Future Past” world tour, Iron Maiden have confirmed tour dates for Australia and New Zealand.
The dates were initially teased by the English heavy metal band in a video posted to social media last week. The official schedule of concerts for September of 2019 was announced today (October 16). Iron Maiden will perform in Perth’s RAC Arena on September 1 and Adelaide Entertainment Centre on September 4, respectively.
The band will then play Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on September 6 and Brisbane’s Entertainment Centre on September 10 before finalising up its Australian tour at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on September 12. On September 16, at Auckland’s Spark Arena, Iron Maiden will also play one gig.
On Iron Maiden’s Australia and New Zealand tour, metalcore band Killswitch Engage will perform as the opening act on all dates. On Wednesday, October 18, Iron Maiden fan club members will have access to pre-sale tickets, and on Tuesday, October 24, general sale tickets will be available here on the band’s website.
Iron Maiden’s 2024 Australia and New Zealand tour dates are:
1 – Perth, Western Australia @ RAC Arena
4 – Adelaide, South Australia @ Adelaide Entertainment Centre
6 – Melbourne, Victoria @ Rod Laver Arena
10 – Brisbane, Queensland @ Brisbane Entertainment Centre
12 – Sydney, NSW @ Qudos Bank Arena
16 – Auckland, New Zealand @ Spark Arena
In 2020, as part of their Legacy of the Beast tour, Iron Maiden was last scheduled to perform in Australia. The COVID-19 pandemic ultimately forced a postponement of that run of performances. “We assured everyone at the time that we would come back to Australia,” Iron Maiden manager Rob Smallwood said of the upcoming tour in a press statement. “We always keep to our promises.”
They’re very excited to bring this incredible new show to the Southern Hemisphere and give our devoted Australian fans the best Maiden event we can, he continued. You can be sure the wait will be worth.
In support of their most recent album, “Senjutsu,” from 2021, Iron Maiden is currently on the “Future Past” tour. The band’s globe tour kicked off in Slovenia in May of this year and has since taken them to countries including England, Canada, and the US.
The band’s music is “more confident and idea-packed than ever before,” according to NME, which gave the album “Senjutsu” a rating of four stars and called it “an instant classic.”
