Iron Maiden Singer to Fly Band Around World For 2016 Tour | Music News

British metal legends Iron Maiden have announced that in 2016, they will embark on a 6-continent world tour, with the band, crew, and set being carried aboard a jumbo Boeing 747 aeroplane, piloted by the band’s lead singer, Bruce Dickinson. The Book of Souls, Iron Maiden’s 16th studio album, is set to be released next Friday, on the 4th of September, with this tour being in support of the album.

 

This is not the first time Iron Maiden have undertaken such a venture; in 2008 and 2011, the band flew around the world on a plane piloted by Bruce Dickinson, although the Boeing Jumbo 747 is by far the largest aircraft they have ever flown. Bruce commented on the news, “when the opportunity arose… of course we jumped at the chance, who wouldn’t? The greatest benefit…is that because of its colossal size and freigt capacity we can carry our stage production and all our stage equipment…in the cargo hold”.

 

Specific details regarding the tour are set to be announced shortly, and you can expect a full review of Iron Maiden’s upcoming record The Book of Souls right here as soon as it’s released.

I am a recent Ancient History graduate and am now slowly making my way into the music industry. Right now I’m stretching my journalistic muscles and learning my way around the business. Musically speaking I’m all over the place, with a heavy upbringing of dad-rock, branching into heavy metal in my teens and all things electronic in my early twenties. In my free time I love creating and playing music, reading and trying (and failing) to sculpt myself into an Adonis at the gym.
