Iron Maiden set for NI return after rescheduling postponed Belsonic date
One of the world’s biggest selling bands of all time - Iron Maiden – will return to the Province next year, having missed out on playing Belfast due to Covid in 2020.
The British heavy metal band, who have sold more than 90 million albums, will headline Belsonic in Ormeau Park on Monday, June 13, 2022, having originally been due to play the event on June 15, 2020.
Their ‘Legacy Of The Beast’ tour is based on their award winning mobile game of the same name, which has been deemed by fans and national and rock media alike as “Maiden’s most monumental show and best setlist ever”.
For two consecutive summers Iron Maiden have been unable to tour.
Manager Rod Smallwood said: “Naturally the band are hugely disappointed, a second summer without touring, especially with this very special Legacy show, is very hard to take.
“They send their best wishes to you all, knowing full well you fans will feel the same.
“As we all know, realistically there is no alternative so we will all make the best of it and spend the time preparing for a very memorable and even more spectacular Legacy tour next year, we promise.
“Until then keep safe and keep smart.”
Tickets for Iron Maiden at Belsonic go on sale this Friday at 9am from Ticketmaster outlets and www.ticketmaster.ie
