Totally. Who would be a good band to open for Maiden? They probably aren't going to get someone really big for a US run, but I really hope it's not just Lauren Harris

Mastodong?

Mastodon, Baroness, Iced Earth, Arch Enemy, Adagio, Children of Bodom, Amon Amarth, DevilDriver, Into Eternity, Nightwish, Turisas. I could honestly see any one of those bands touring with Iron Maiden.

Because Arch Enemy in the past has toured with Maiden it opens up the door to Extreme Metal bands. With the USA Market for metal, Devildriver is easy to put on there. They even did one of the few better covers on that last album.

Adagio and Turisas are seriously wishful thinking, bro. Maiden has probably never heard of those bands.

I think Mastodon is the no-brainer selection. The only possible issue is that they're too big and are on the verge of doing arena dates themselves.

I would argue that Maiden is one of the most known/liked metal bands across the board. If they spaced shows well, they shouldn't have a problem touring the US.

Ok, so no one in the south can see Maiden?

I think playing in Oklahoma/Kansas/Texas would attract a huge crowd.

Depends on the size of said arenas and the scale of the tour.

Iron Maiden Announces North American Tour:
New York - May 7, 8, 9
Toronto - May 11, 12
Chicago - May 14, 15
Houston - May 17
LA - May 19, 20, 21
San Fran - May 23
Seattle - May 25

That looks about right I think

But yeah if they spaced out a tour where the schedule was: 4 Shows ever 7 Days for almost 2 Months, that would calm America down pretty hard. And That's only 15 Shows. They just need to hit either Florida or Georgia and that calms down the big South fever.
