British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN have released a video message thanking fans for coming out to see them on the just-completed European leg of “The Future Past Tour”, which features previously unperformed songs from their most recent studio album, “Senjutsu”, along with a focus on 1986’s “Somewhere In Time” LP, plus other classic cuts.
In the three-minute video message singer Bruce Dickinson – who coincidentally turned 65 yesterday – states: “We’re just coming to the end of the first 35 shows, something like that. And we’re having a little, a little break, not too much. And then we’ve got three Canadian shows in late September and early October, which will be great to go on a little run around Western Canada. And then we go out to the desert for Power Trip festival in Indio, California.”
As for MAIDEN‘s post-Power Trip plans, Bruce said cryptically: “Something else will happen. I can’t tell you what. But you’ll be happy.”
The European leg of “The Future Past Tour” saw MAIDEN play a 15-song set that included “Days Of Future Past”, “The Time Machine”, “Death Of The Celts” and “Hell On Earth” from “Senjutsu“, along with “Alexander The Great” from “Somewhere In Time”.
