IRON MAIDEN have announced their most ambitious and extraordinary touring plans ever — and are very pleased to announce that this will include Australia for the first time in 15 years!

The Somewhere Back In Time World Tour 2008 will be in three sections, starting in February and March 2008 with the first leg encompassing major concerts in 20 selected cities on five continents in seven weeks including India, Japan, North America, Central and South America, and, of course, Australia, opening in Perth on February 4 and continuing through Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane:

Somewhere Back In Time, Australia 2008 dates:

Feb. 04 - Burswood Dome - Perth
Feb. 06 - Rod Laver Arena - Melbourne
Feb. 09 - Acer Arena - Sydney
Feb. 12 - Entertainment Centre - Brisbane

The tour then continues with more concerts in North America in late May and June before finishing with a third leg in July and August encompassing major stadiums and festivals all over Europe. During the tour the band is expected to play to well over one and a half million fans and travel close to 100,000 miles.

In an historic first, IRON MAIDEN, their 60-strong crew and support staff and over 12 tons of equipment will be traveling around the world en masse for the first leg of the tour in a specially commissioned and converted Astraeus Boeing 757 decorated with MAIDEN and Eddie designs! Vocalist Bruce Dickinson, who is a qualified airline captain flying for Astraeus Airlines, will pilot the plane on its epic mission, flying over 50,000 miles.

Comments Bruce Dickinson, "We had the idea last year of converting a jumbo jet into effectively what would be a flying 113 ton 'splitter bus' for touring and we have been working seriously on it ever since. It's pretty complex but in the end we were able, with a lot of help from Astraeus Airlines, to overcome all the technicalities of customizing the plane for our purposes. We are taking out the back 10 rows of seats to fit in a customized cargo hold that we can use again in the future if this jaunt works. This is in addition to all the standard storage holds. By taking band, personnel and equipment in one form of transport it makes all the touring so much easier and overcomes the logistical difficulty of people and equipment going in different planes. We can even work out exactly how big our carbon footprint is and take care of that responsibility! We will be packing as much of the show into the plane as we possibly can for this first leg and intend to give the fans something very special to remember. And it allows me to combine 2 of my greatest passions, music and flying!!"

To tie in with forthcoming 2008 releases on DVD of the classic "Live After Death" and "Maiden England" concert videos (more details coming soon) this tour, aptly entitled "Somewhere Back In Time", will revisit the band's history by focusing almost entirely on the '80s in both choice of songs played and the stage set, which will be based around the legendary Egyptian production of the 1984-85 Powerslave tour. This will arguably be the most elaborate and spectacular show the band have ever presented, and will include some key elements of their Somewhere In Time tour of 1986/7, such as the cyborg Eddie.

Steve Harris comments: "On the last tour we opened the show by playing our new album 'A Matter of Life And Death' in its 80-minute entirety. We thought we needed the challenge and it proved the right thing to do. However, it can be hard on the fans playing so much new material and we really appreciated the superb support they gave us. So now l guess it's payback time. It's tremendous to be able to use the profile of the DVDs to do what is effectively an '80s show. It will be enormous fun and by changing the approach to the songs we play tour by tour it keeps it fresh and interesting for both the band and the fans alike. l think 'Powerslave' was an incredible show with the Egyptian theme and look forward to seeing it all again myself. We have been planning this for a few years and hoping to take it to Australia — so we are all delighted that it has now worked out. I would also like to say that we are all are very grateful to our loyal fans in Oz who have kept the MAIDEN flag flying all these years and we are sorry to have disappointed you for so long. Thanks and see you there"

Rod Smallwood, IRON MAIDEN's manager, further commented: "Following Bruce's various hints from on stage this last year about our plans for 2008 ('We are taking some time off to build some pyramids!'), fans have been pestering me for details of the tour and especially asking which songs from that era will be played. That may be as easy as a run in the hills but we will keep our aces close to our chest on this issue. I know it would only take a couple of minutes but at this stage of planning, I'd have to be clairvoyant to know what they will do. I'm sure though it will be no revelation for you that we intend to make up for those wasted years by visiting a large number of hallowed metal venues around the world. Historically 'Powerslave' was an incredibly important album for the band and it would be madness if we didn't give the fans a taste of the full-on IRON MAIDEN show from that time. With our jumbo there really is no rime nor reason why the band cannot now visit fans almost everywhere as many have been real troopers to have waited this long. Heaven only knows what the band will choose but if l could and did tell you now l would have to shoot you! You'll all have to be patient and see. But it will be spectacular. No fear!!"

Historically, this will be MAIDEN's fourth Australian Tour having first toured in 1982 when "The Number Of The Beast" was Australia's number one album, then again in 1985 with the original "Powerslave" show and most recently in 1992 with "Fear Of The Dark". However a great deal has happened with the band since then, especially in recent years when ticket sales have continued to explode around the world as the band's loyal fan base continues to flourish. As MAIDEN have never had airplay or much video channel exposure anywhere in the world their popularity spread mainly by word of mouth on the back of a legacy of many great albums and an awesome live reputation. With the ever increasing power of the internet the MAIDEN legend has fired the imagination of new young fans around the planet, and, although their audience spans two generations, it is now predominantly a young one, inspired by the massive legacy and influence of this unique band (and, of course, Eddie).

To allow IRON MAIDEN fans in Australia to get right up close to the band,the fan club are organizing advance booking of tickets for members and running a special draw for them whereby 60 winners and friend at each show will be given first access to the venue and be first to the stage barrier. Full details will be on www.ironmaiden.com.

Tickets go on sale to the public 9am Thursday, September 27, but members of the IRON MAIDEN fan club get exclusive first access to purchase tickets from 12 noon Thursday, September 20 through to 12 noon Monday, September 24. More details soon!

I was thinking about that and something occured to me. They didn't really do a "proper" tour of the states with the early days. I mean we got the 60 minute Ozzfest set, and what extras did that give us? Revelations and Phantom Of The Opera.

Still though, an entire Maiden set with only the first 7 albums? :stiffy:

It looks like they're including all the first 7 albums. I'm not sure why, I agree with you on that, but I do see how it'd be hard for them just to play songs from Powerslave-Seventh Son. They HAVE to do 'Iron Maiden' and "Hallowed" at every song anyways, they haven't done Run To The Hills for the last 2 tours either. The Trooper sat out last year as well, and Rod hinted at it coming back in this press release. My guess is these are the songs they will play:

Aces High
Revelations
The Trooper
2 Minutes To Midnight
Powerslave
Heaven Can Wait
Rime Of The Ancient Mariner
Wasted Years
Can I Play With Madness
The Clairvoyant
Killers
Run To The Hills
Hallowed Be Thy Name
Number Of The Beast
Iron Maiden

Yes, the Great Maiden Schism Of 2005. :D

Old-timers may remember that a photo of mine from a Maiden concert servered as our banner-logo for the first year or two. We still have smileys left over from the old OLD IMBB because so many of first members were used to them. Maiden was a huge part of this place for a long time. That really changed in 2005 when Maiden decided to do Early Days Tour and a limited Ozzfest run. The biggest Maiden haters have left the board. Some have abandoned Metal algether. There may not be a vocal rebellion this time around except from our admins. :tongue:

I don't think even the (Fallen... fallen since he can't keep his band together) Messiah has many true believers left on METALSETLISTS. Maybe the Lake Of Fire should be turned off for conservative purposes. :eek:

This will be absolutely great, even when Dickinson at some point during the tour doesn't get enough fiber in his diet. This will cause him on a nightly basis to preach a bit, whine about money and lack of album sales, and what could be described accurately as semi-assholian behavior toward his fans. It'll only last a few minutes of the show....the rest will be bitchin' and night never to be forgotten.

"Stadiums and festivals"? For fuck sakes.

Play some real goddamn venues. Stop trying to hit as many people as possible in a single night and play a string of dates in real places like you used to.

"one and half millions fans"? Yeah, great. But only about 200,000 of those will actually get to see you. Wonderful.

So, what's the UK going to get? Headlining Reading in front of a bunch of indie fans again? That was successful last time. Or Wembley Stadium? The worst venue for music we've had in this country pretty much ever.

I reckon this will rule in the States and suck the big one in Europe.

Because that's what they did the first time round on the Somewhere/Powerslave tours? They're trying to recreate the old tours, in a way. To recreate those tours without "Iron Maiden" and "Hallowed Be Thy Name" wouldn't be accurate.

I'm with you though. I'd much rather they dropped those songs and played stuff exclusively from Somewhere and Powerslave. That would rule.

For me the most exciting thing is getting Maiden England on DVD. I've got the VHS, with the bonus CD. I love that gig.

I don't think Maiden tickets have ever been that expensive. I don't remember what I paid for two tickets in 2003 but I think altogther it was $90.

I doubt it will be. If it's much over $50 though, I'll probably pass. But that's just sort of my general rule about concert prices ;)

This is gonna be great!!!! as long as they stick to those albums. I agree that they should leave the first four albums to the early days, but i think they'll include a couple of songs, obviously run to the hills, hallowed be thy name, number of the beast, probably classics like sanctuary/ironmaiden.

But having the chance to hear songs like the clairvoyant, infinite dreams, seventh son of a seventh son, aces high, flash of the blade?!??!?! It will be immense!!!!

i am very relieved to be honest, im really excited. After two years of AMOLD im excited, but not as much as 2005 on the early days tour!!!! I'd like to see how these compare

I think maiden cater very well for the fans in the u.k, when ever they play a festival (reading/leeds 2005 and donnigton 07) on both these occaisons they play one date at a much smaller and intimate venue, such as brixton accademy or hammersmith for the clive burr charity.

i suppose reading wasnt the best choice of "venue" in 05 but it fitted the theme of the early days tour, before 2005 they only played reading twice, once in 1980 and once in 1982, it was also at reading festival where iron maiden asked bruce dickinson in 1980. so reading was kinda a good choice for them for the "early days" tour.

Im not doing reading festival up the arse, i think its a crap festival, like you say indie bands and fans, but u can always get a day ticket etc. there were loads of maiden fans there at reading in 05.
What was quite amusing tho were indie kids watching iron maiden waiting to here fear of the dark and rainmaker, and obviously disappointed and after the set, they thought maiden were shit lol

To guess where they are going to play in the U.K is a challenge.

at donnigton they said they're going to return in a big muddy field......so i would put my money on a festival:

Donnington??? Very unlikely as they headlined last year

Reading/leeds???? Fairly likely, but i hope not.

Glastonbury???? again fairly likely

Knebworth???? i think this would be awesome

Stadiums, i would probably put my money on wembley or twickenham or milton keynes.
Wembley isnt too bad, i hate the golden circle bullshit, but i saw metallica and live earth there and i had no complaints about the venue, just the price of food and shit, but the atmosphere in there is amazing!!!

I would also bank on maiden doing a smaller gig at a smaller venue in aid of clive burr again sum where in london

I had the previlledge of buying a beer (a corona with lime) and a JD & coke to Rod Smallwood himself at the hotel bar in Québec city, and before the band arrived we had time to chat for a good half hour at the bar. He was sooo fucking nice, it's not even funny, I show him pictures of my Harley, my kids everything, he was really like an old friend. When I told him I was bringing my son to the Montreal gig, he offered me to go with him on the sounboard !!! Wich I declined because I was with other people too. He was crazy about our beavers concept. And he was very please that we had made a T for him and the boys.

Here is a pic of us chating, the fellow freak who Rod is tapping the shoulder is yours trully !!

It's actually their coolest cover, just overused.

:rolleyes: No. They've done plenty of cooler covers.

All of you are smoking crack. Everyone knows that Dance Of Death cover is the best.:D

Oh yes. For sure.

Wasn't there a running list of all the logistical errors with that album cover at one point?

They better open with Aces High. That song deserves to be played.

Coolest part of the ED Huntour was the computer generated opening right into Aces High.

that and when they played Wasted Years. :horns::rocker::light:

My favorite Maiden concert ever.

Eh. Bruce did a pretty bad job singing it live in 1985, not to mention the Ed Hunter tour. His take on it now would be absolutely cringe-worthy.
