In acknowledgement of the 25th anniversary of the release of their seminal album "The Number of the Beast" and the tremendous international success of their recent album "A Matter of Life and Death", IRON MAIDEN's forthcoming June dates in Europe will go under the banner of "A Matter Of The Beast Summer Tour 07". The band will be playing five songs from each of these albums plus other fan favorites and will be taking out a full-on stage production which will include the final appearances of Eddie's notorious tank!Says vocalist Bruce Dickinson: "It's always a lot of fun for us to play outdoors in the summer. It tends to be a different vibe to playing indoors, much more of a party atmosphere so it's good to put together a set list that matches this. There has been a lot of interest in the 25th anniversary of the release of 'Number of the Beast' so we thought it would be great to give the fans a bit of extra Beast this summer to acknowledge this."
