Bruce was in town recently signing copies of his autobiography

Heavy metal giants Iron Maiden have released details of their Legacy Of The Beast World Tour 2018 and it includes six dates in the UK.

And one of them is just down the road at Birmingham’s Genting Arena on August 7.

The jaunt will follow their global tour of 2016-17.

Notts born frontman Bruce Dickinson was in town just last month signing copies of his new autobiography What Does This Button Do? at Waterstones in Bridlesmith Gate.

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.

“For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie.

“I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.”
