Report: IRON MAIDEN To Perform In Israel For First Time In 25 Years

According to Israel Hayom, British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN are in talks to perform in Israel next year. The band is said to be planning a concert at Tel Aviv's Bloomfield Stadium in late May.

If the show does happen, it will mark IRON MAIDEN's first appearance in in the Jewish state in 25 years. MAIDEN previously played three shows in Israel in September 1995 during "The X Factor" tour, featuring Blaze Bayley on vocals instead of Bruce Dickinson.

Last December, Dickinson appeared in Tel Aviv as part of his spoken-word tour, presenting his autobiography, "What Does This Button Do?" , sharing stories from his childhood, unruly teenage years and his career as a musician of one of the most successful rock bands in history.

IRON MAIDEN recently completed the North American leg of its "Legacy Of The Beast" tour. The concept for the trek was inspired by MAIDEN's mobile game and comic book of the same name. The stage set design featured a number of different but interlocking "worlds" with a setlist covering a large selection of 1980s material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.

MAIDEN's 2019 North, South and Central America trek comprised 44 shows in six countries, which, combined with the band's 2018 European dates, means that the group has taken the "Legacy Of The Beast" show to over one and three quarter of a million fans around the globe.
