    Official 2020 Tour Thread

    Honestly at this point if Nicko or any other band member is seeing that the end is nigh with regards to their performing ability I would rather the band just wrap it up and call it a day. The idea of seeing some Frankenstein's monster version of Maiden with long-time members chopped out for...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I'm very conflicted because whilst LOTB will be amazing at Donington Park and couldn't be a better fit for the festival, we were all hoping that they wouldn't drag another history tour out for three years. Bruce's statement: IRON MAIDEN will headline Download Festival on Saturday June 13, and...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    The website Rock sound has accidentally released its download festival article early, Maiden are one of the headliners. https://www.rocksound.tv/news/read/download-festival-2020-headliners-line-up-tickets-dates The question is: New album or LOTB leg 3? EDIT: Article has been taken down and...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    If anything this could suggest a 2020 LOTB leg is not on the cards. A third leg would surely visit Asia and Australia as the tour has not been taken to those parts of the world and Maiden historically tour those regions starting in February/March.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Just a thought but late October/early November is the time when the European festivals like Download tend to announce headliners. This raises the possibility of an album announcement and tour announcement in one maybe even with a single release (Day of the Dead) at the same time. Maiden usually...

    Loopy World Iron Maiden Book

    A lot of the content from the book can be found in a series of blogs written by Loopy. I don't know if the book is taken word for word from these blogs but they were written before and the attention they gathered prompted him to compile them in book form. They can be found here...

    Sabaton

    The press release states that it will be a full concept album, with the songs only relating to WWI.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    His book tour date alone in London was in a 3000 capacity theatre style venue. I don't know if it sold out but it was pretty full. If he toured solo (unlikely imo even after Maiden call it a day) he could easily fill larger venues.

    Maiden's Heaviest Song?

    I never found Seventh Son to be a heavy song until hearing it live a few years back. The opening chords alone were absolutely crushing.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I was on the fence about all this but the fact that posts are being edited and taken down is surely positive evidence.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Whilst it does seem like there's some positive evidence in favour of some recording going on, the fact that this year's tour is rolling on until mid-October makes it unlikely that a new album would be released this year, given that there are normally a couple of months promo in advance.

    Legacy of the Beast Tour Second Leg Rumours & Discussions

    Note that they say no further countries will be added rather than no further dates, I expect there will be more SA shows than are currently announced given their popularity there.

    Legacy of the Beast Tour Second Leg Rumours & Discussions

    I think the only chance of Maiden doing any UK shows next year is as a festival headliner, there's no chance they would do full arena tours on three consecutive years over here. Ergo, I hope they are at download!

    Judas Priest

    KK seems very bitter about the whole affair. Whilst his input over the course of Priest's career is surely appreciated by every fan, he chose to leave and that doesn't give him the right to rejoin whenever he feels like it. Perhaps he thought the band was done creatively at the point of his...
