In the summer of 2023, Iron Maiden will not be playing at a Belgian festival, but at the Sportpaleis for an exclusive concert! On Thursday 13 July, the famous British hard rock band will be coming to Antwerp for their new tour, ‘The Future Past Tour’. During ‘The Future Past Tour’, fans will be treated to songs from the band’s latest studio album ‘Senjutsu’ – which have never been played live before – as well as tracks from their iconic album ‘Somewhere In Time’ and many other classics.
Bassist and co-founder Steve Harris is already very excited:
“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 Belgium and around Europe”.
Tout comme le manager Rod Smallwood :
“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 we will go back largely to the relative intimacy of arenas and we know fans will be very happy about that too!”
