Rock band Iron Maiden will bring its Legacy of the Beast World Tour to El Paso in September 2022.
The band will perform Sept. 11 at the Don Haskins Center, according to a UTEP Special Events press release.
General ticket sales start at 10 a.m. Dec. 10 via Ticketmaster.com and the UTEP Box Office. Fans can register on verifiedfan.ticketmaster.com to order tickets in advance starting at 10 a.m. Dec. 8.
There will be an exclusive pre-sale for Iron Maiden fan club members beginning at 10 a.m. Dec. 7. All presales end at 10 p.m. Dec. 9.
The 2022 tour produced by Live Nation is being hailed as visually spectacular with a decades-spanning set list as well as songs from their new studio album, Senjutsu, being played live for the first time.
“Next summer we will finally get to play the huge European stadium tour for The Legacy Of The Beast, and the new show will be even more spectacular so after our visit to Rock in Rio early September 2022 we decided to take it back to our fans in North America too, but in cities or venues we didn’t play in 2019, including some we haven’t visited in many years like El Paso, Spokane, Sioux Falls, Columbus, Hamilton, Ottawa and Greensboro," said Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood in the release.
The pioneers in British heavy metal music enjoyed great success in the early 1980s, despite several line-up changes. The addition of Bruce Dickinson in 1981 as lead singer may have been a turning point in their career toward becoming one of the heavy metal greats.
Some of their best songs include "Hallowed Be Thy Name," "Powerslave," "The Trooper," "Phantom Of The Opera," and "Aces High."
The North American Tour will take the group through 23 arenas and amphitheaters in September and October of 2022.
Special Guests will be Trivium on all dates between El Paso and Spokane, and then Within Temptation on all dates from Sioux Falls to Tampa.
The Legacy Of The Beast Tour production and set list is inspired by Maiden’s award-winning free-to-play mobile game of the same name which is available on iOS and Android platforms at www.ironmaiden.com/play
