Bruce Dickinson also talked about the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour 2022: “I’m really excited about the new additions to the stage production and we can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve got planned. The whole band has really enjoyed the Legacy tour and now we just can’t wait to get back out on the road to play live, have fun and see everyone again.”
The tour manager of the band added:
“Next summer we will finally get to play the huge European stadium and festival tour for Legacy of the Beast originally set for 2020.
The new show will be even more spectacular so after our visit to Rock in Rio in early September 2022, we have decided to take it back to our fans in North America and Mexico too, playing in cities or venues we did not get to last time we toured in 2019. We are also adding some of the great cities of eastern Europe we were not initially visiting!
We’ll be making a couple of additions and changes to the production and setlist to include some songs from our new album Senjutsu and are making the 2022 version of Legacy of the Beast even more spectacular than the acclaimed original show.
You can be sure that we will still be featuring all the “hits” and the key elements of the original tour like the Spitfire, Icarus, Hell, flamethrowers and pyro, and the rest. But we will shake it up a bit and Trooper Eddie will have serious competition in the new Senjutsu ‘world’ we are adding.”
