The Book Of Souls Tour 2019@Budweiser Theatre-Fri.,Aug.9th,2019
The 2019 world tour continued for Iron Maiden and it returned to North American and Toronto once again in support of their latest record The Book Of Souls. The band were here in 2017 and this was the first of two sold out shows at the Budweiser Theatre, during which lead singer Bruce Dickinson underwent treatment for tongue cancer, the heavy metal icons returned stronger than ever with a huge double album that is more progressive, than their usual hard rock formula. They toured North America last year, but due to huge demand, they’re back again in Toronto.
Iron Maiden were formed in London in 1975, and given the fact they took their name from a medieval torture device, it pioneered a wave of British heavy metal, their no nonsense approach, taking inspiration from the likes of UFO, Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, and of course the great vocals of singer Bruce Dickinson, immediately marked them out as something special.
Among their most iconic tracks played tonight, were- ‘Flight of Icarus,’The Number of the Beast’ and ‘The Trooper’. Overall, the fans got what they expected and when they were in Toronto last year, the set list and stage set up were preactically the same.
Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has announced plans to head out on a spoken word tour across Europe later this year.
The What Does This Button Do?: An Evening With Bruce Dickinson trek will see the vocalist chat about his career both in and out of Maiden, with fans able to submit their questions to him each night.
The first show will take place at Lisinski in Zagreb, Croatia, on October 26 and will wrap up at the National Stadium in Dublin, Ireland, on December 13. Find a full list of dates below.
To mark the news, Dickinson has released a video showing him on stage during his previous spoken word tours.
