    Forostar Conjure the Death Star again

    This topic features tour stats/trivia related to date and/or location.

    In the next post you'll find "Maiden gigs in a row", and this opening post will be an overview of Maiden tours, countries and number of gigs per country.

    If interested, there is also a topic related to Maiden tours and songs and a topic related to Maiden songs played by band members.

    Tours and amount of gigs per country
    I'm starting from the tour that promoted the debut album. Not that I am not interested in what happened before (on the contrary!), but that takes more time. As you can see, the order is led by amount of gigs. When the amount is the same, the country that was visited earlier will be mentioned first.

    I am using wiki as a source, because it is very practical. Please correct me if you see a mistake and/or if you think you know a better source for a certain date or tour. Other feedback is also welcome of course!
