Iron Maiden short tour in 2012/world tour in 2013

From Blabbermouth.net:

When asked about what is going on with IRON MAIDEN at the moment, Nicko replied, "Well, we're taking some time off. And we're gonna go back out on tour sometime this year. We're not sure yet when. It's in the words of a very famous British singer from the Second World War called Vera Lynn. And she had a song and it went something like, 'We'll meet again. Don't know where. Don't know when.' So that's in the line of Vera Lynn. We're doing a Vera Lynn. We don't know where, we don't know when. . . [But] IRON MAIDEN is touring sometime this year, yeah. I don't think [it will be a world tour this time]. Next year, maybe. But this year, it's just gonna be a little tour short run."

I hope the tour this year is Japan / North America. They were just in Europe for an extensive tour and they just played South America as well and most shows didn't sell as well as in previous years. Japan had their Final Frontier shows cancelled and they haven't played more than 2 dates in the U.S. since summer 2010 so I think both those markets are ready for more dates.

Not to mention neither market (with the exception of Florida) has gotten the proper Final Frontier tour yet.

Say what you want about America - 13 bucks can still get you a hell of a lot of mice!

They'll probably end up playing the same NA markets as they have last few years.

Hopefully they've wised up and they don't skip Florida again like they normally do. I know those were the last two shows they did, but that was a huge deal because they normally skip us. Hell, it had been over 20 years since they played Tampa! So Maiden, please don't skip FL again, especially if you do another greatest hits tour!

I'm sure they'll manage to skip about a 400 mile radius around where I live.

23 years since they've been to Louisiana. This short tour will most definitely be focused on North America and Japan. It would be silly to go to all the places they went to last year. I'm assuming this short tour will be some sort of retrospective tour. Hopefully there will be a focus on hidden gems (Alexander the great, Infinite dreams, Caught somewhere in time etc.) In the video interview Nicko says keeping watching the website because tour info will be posted soon.

I'm really hoping this is more of a classics tour. As cool as it was to hear the stuff from Brave New World onwards back in 2010, I'd love for a chance to hear some classic Maiden.
