Maiden just revealed that they’ll return to the States in September for a handful of shows leading up to their headlining gig at Brazil’s Rock in Rio Festival on Sept. 22 in front of a sold out crowd of over 70,000 fans.
The new string of dates includes stops in U.S. cities that Maiden have never included on past tours like Raleigh, N.C., and others that they haven’t seen in over two decades like Nashville, Tenn. and Austin, Texas. Dates in Kansas City, St. Louis and Las Vegas also made the list.
Rounding out the bill, Megadeth will provide opening support for Iron Maiden on all dates.
The short run of dates will culminate on Sept. 13 when Iron Maiden headline the Battle of San Bernardino at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, Calif. The west coast metalfest will also feature Anthrax, Testament, Megadeth, Overkill and Sabaton for this one-time event.
