Steve Harris says: “Following the release of our latest album, “Senjutsu”, we updated the current Legacy of the Beast Tour a little by opening the show with the first 3 songs from it, with the Japanese Palace stage set. As it doesn’t make a lot of sense to repeat this for a “Senjutsu” album tour, we thought about other options and we’ve decided to revisit “Somewhere In Time” as that tour didn’t feature in the various retrospective history tours we’ve played over the years. They were based on our 80’s concert videos and sadly we did not film that tour (blame the manager!!). We have had lots of requests from fans over the years for many tracks on it so we are now going to play them, plus of course a few others we know you will like! It will also be particularly satisfying to finally get to play some of the more epic tracks on “Senjutsu”, it’s been a long wait! 2023 is going to be an exciting time and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone again in the UK, Ireland and around Europe”.
Manager, Rod Smallwood adds: “This combination of the two albums we feel is very exciting. We know fans want to hear those epic cuts on “Senjutsu” for the first time live and we think that by combining it with an iconic album like “Somewhere In Time” it will make for another really special tour for fans old and new! Of course, for a new album tour in Europe and the UK we will go back largely to the relative intimacy of arenas and we know fans will be very happy about that too!”
