Done Events Iron Maiden Legacy of the Beast World Tour Coca-Cola Arena, Dubai
Done Events recently announced the return of Iron Maiden on their Legacy of the Beast World Tour on May 27, 2020 at the Coca-Cola Arena, Citywalk, Dubai. The band’s sold-out stadium, arena and festival show across Europe, North America, Mexico and South America have seen close to two million fans since the tour opened last year including headlining to a capacity crowd of 100,000 at the legendary Rock In Rio Festival in Brazil.
Bruce Dickinson, Vocalist, Maiden comments, “It’ll be eleven years since we were last in Dubai so we’re delighted to be making a return visit to present the Legacy Of The Beast Tour to all our fans there! We’re immensely proud of this show and we’ve had great reactions from the many fans who came to see us in Europe, North America, Mexico and South America. The production for Dubai is exactly the same as the other shows on this tour so far and is based on our mobile game THE LEGACY OF THE BEAST which basically takes various incarnations of Eddie into many different Maiden Worlds. This inspired us to put together a stage show to take our fans through different Worlds and experiences set to appropriate songs. It is not that easy designing different Worlds on stage and we put a huge amount of work into this to make it work and the end result we feel is our most spectacular and certainly the most complex show to date. We’ve got all kinds of crazy things going on, including a replica Spitfire plane dominating the stage during ‘Aces High,’ tons of pyro, a giant Icarus, muskets, claymores and some truly marvellous flame-throwers which I have a hell of a lot of fun with, as you will see! And of course, we have Eddie, as you’ve never seen him before, and absolutely loads of other surprises. I’ve had the time of my life playing with all these magnificent props on stage, it’s been fantastic, we can’t wait to bring this show to you!”
Steve Harris, Bassist and Founder member adds, “We gave a lot of thought to the setlist for this Tour as the songs needed to follow the narrative of the changing worlds of the stage show. We feel we ended up with a very strong and well balanced set mixing songs we haven’t played in many years like ‘Flight Of Icarus,’ ‘Sign Of The Cross’ and ‘The Clansman’ with songs we know the fans want to hear like ‘The Trooper,’ ‘2 Minutes To Midnight,’ ‘The Number Of The Beast,’ ‘Fear Of The Dark,’ ‘Run To The Hills,’ ‘Hallowed Be Thy Name’ and others, reflecting the journey through the different themes of the show. We’re excited to be bringing this tour to Dubai as most of the setlist comprises songs which our fans will know well but which haven’t been performed live there for over ten years, some of them even longer than that. The whole band is really enjoying this tour and we are really looking forward to seeing everybody again!”
Girish Bhat, Managing Director, Done Events said, “We cannot wait to welcome such a legendary act to the Coca-Cola Arena next May. Fans will be overwhelmed with the show and we cannot wait to see everyone there. Buy your tickets quick!”
Special Guests on the 2020 tour will be announced shortly.
