Heavy Metal fans rejoice as the iconic band Iron Maiden are heading to The O2 next year.

Following their global tour in 2016-17, the band will take to the road again in 2018 with a series of shows across Europe.

The band will stop at the iconic Greenwich arena on August 10, 2018 to perform their Legacy of the Beast world tour.

Tickets are on sale at 9am on November 24 and are available at theo2.co.uk or by calling 0844 856 0202.

Maiden manager Rod Smallwood said: “As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with History/Hits tours.

“We enjoy working this way for many reasons, not least because it gives the band a chance to play both new material and the older favourites which we know fans like to hear. It keeps things fresh, not just for the fans but for the band too.”
