Iron Maiden Plan to Play Their New Album ‘Senjutsu’ In Its Entirety on Upcoming Tours

Published on:

This September, heavy metal groundbreakers Iron Maiden are heading out on a North American tour in support of last year’s Senjutsu, which landed at #28 on The Pit’s 30 Top Albums of 2021. Now, the band have announced that fans of their new record have a special treat coming their way in the future: the band will perform Senjutsu in its entirety on tours in the near future — though maybe not this one.

“The plan we’ve got — it’s not really a secret; I think everybody else has chatted about it — we will, I hope, we’ve talked about doing the entire album start to finish, but not this time around,” frontman Bruce Dickinson told Chris Jericho on his podcast. “And we all appreciate that that is something that really diehard fans will probably love and other people will go, ‘Hmmm, I’m not gonna go see that.’ So the answer is you play smaller venues so that they sell out with just your diehard fans. ‘Cause it’s a musical thing to do — it’s a musical thing.”

Catch Maiden live and yell, “PLAY THE WHOLE THING, YOU BRILLIANT BASTARDS!” at one of the following dates this fall. And to read more about Iron Maiden and other metal mayhem, make sure to subscribe to our daily newsletter.
