Iron Maiden to Rock Australia with Killswitch Engage: Future Past Tour 2024
Iron Maiden, the legendary British heavy metal band formed in 1975, has thrilled fans with an electrifying announcement: they’re bringing their much-acclaimed “The Future Past Tour” to Australia in 2024. This marks the iconic band’s first return to the land Down Under since their 2016-17 “The Book of Souls Tour,” a tour that broke attendance records.
The Anticipation Is Over—Iron Maiden Returns to Australia
Initially, Iron Maiden’s performances mesmerized European crowds, extended their influence to Western Canada, and recently took over the PowerTrip Festival in California. Fans will recall that the band has had a long-standing love affair with Australia since their first visit in the ’80s. Now, the time has come for Australian fans to mark their calendars. The tour will kick off in Perth and make its way through Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, and finally Sydney. A special feature to look forward to: American metallers Killswitch Engage will be joining them as supporting acts on all shows. For fans interested in memorabilia, expect to see exclusive tour merchandise that often becomes collectors’ items.
“The Future Past Tour” showcases a unique blend of songs from their recent album “Senjutsu,” the band’s 17th studio album, coupled with hits from their 1986 seminal album “Somewhere in Time,” which was the first to feature synthesized bass and guitar sounds, alongside other fan favorites. Super-fans might be thrilled to know that the tour’s setlist occasionally features deep cuts and rarities. The tour has already been a blockbuster hit, selling out in more than 30 European cities and boasting one of the most visually stunning stage productions of Iron Maiden’s career, complete with their iconic mascot, Eddie.
Bassist Steve Harris, who is also the band’s primary songwriter, expresses their excitement:
“We’ve really enjoyed playing all the shows on ‘The Future Past Tour’ this year, and the reaction from our fans has been incredible. We’re all really excited to finally be able to return to Australia. It’s going to be great to get back there, especially with this new show. We promise you all, it’ll be worth the wait!”
Manager Rod Smallwood, the man behind the band’s successful brand for decades, added:
“You can be assured it’s worth the wait. See you all in 2024!”
