Iron Maiden announce European tour 2023 including Manchester show: when and how to get tickets

Iron Maiden announce Summer 2023 tour with a focus on their 1986 classic, Somewhere In Time

Iron Maiden have announced a series of shows across the UK and Europe, with Manchester metalheads lucky to be on  their list of destinations.

The Future Past Tour will feature previously unperformed songs from the band’s most recent studio album, Senjutsu along with a focus on 1986’s iconic Somewhere In Time record, plus other classic cuts.

Speaking about the tour, founding member and bassist Steve Harris said “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”.
