IRON MAIDEN Arrive In Croatia To Commence Rehearsals For 2022 World Tour


Dalmacija News reports that IRON MAIDEN have arrived in Split, Croatia yesterday (Wednesday, April 27) to commence rehearsals for their upcoming “Legacy Of The Beast” tour.

The band will stay in Split for 26 days in preparation for the next leg of the massively popular trek, which gets going on May 22 in Zagreb, Croatia.

IRON MAIDEN vocalist Bruce Dickinson confirmed earlier this year that the band are planning to stage a tour sometime in the future where they will perform their new album, “Senjutsu”, from front to back.

Bruce told FOZZY singer and professional wrestler Chris Jericho on his “Talk Is Jericho” podcast: “The plan we’ve got — it’s not really a secret; I think everybody else has chatted about it — we will, I hope, we’ve talked about doing the entire [‘Senjutsu’] album start to finish, but not this time around. And we all appreciate that that is something that really diehard fans will probably love and other people will go, ‘Hmmm, I’m not gonna go see that.’ So the answer is you play smaller venues so that they sell out with just your diehard fans. ‘Cause it’s a musical thing to do — it’s a musical thing.”

Dickinson discussed in-depth the 2022 leg of IRON MAIDEN’s “Legacy Of The Beast” trek, explaining that it will once again focus primarily on a decades-spanning setlist of fan favorites.

“The ‘Legacy Of The Beast’ tour, people have all paid their money to see the ‘Legacy Of The Beast’ show, with Spitfires and flamethrowers and Icarus and everything that goes with,” he said. “So they’re gonna get all that. But the first three tracks are probably gonna be the first three tracks on the [‘Senjutsu’] album. ‘The Writing On The Wall’ they already know, so everybody should know the first three tracks. And I just think [the] ‘Senjutsu’ [title track] is just such a great opening song — so dramatic. And then once you’ve done that — and we’ll have a stage set to go with it — once you’ve done that, you’re back to the kind of ‘Legacy’ world at that point. But I think ‘The Writing On The Wall’ is gonna be a great song — I mean, a crowd singalong song. You can imagine that. It’ll be fantastic.”

IRON MAIDEN’s first album in six years, “Senjutsu” was recorded in 2019 in Paris with longstanding producer Kevin Shirley and co-produced by bassist Steve Harris.
