Iron Maiden’s Legacy of the Beast tour is off until next summer.

The band’s manager, Rod Smallwood, posted a note on the British metal legends’ official website, saying, “Due to the continuing health issues Worldwide around Covid-19 we regretfully inform you that Iron Maiden will now not be playing any concerts until June 2021.”

All of the band’s European shows except a couple have now been rescheduled for June and July, and, according to Smallwood, “We are in the process of inviting back all the Special Guests and supports who were due to play with us this year. Where any band is unable to commit to this due to their own rescheduling situations, we will look at finding other suitable acts of equivalent stature.”

The band’s festival dates, however, will not be rescheduled due to previous plans for 2021.

Meanwhile, the leg of the tour that was going to start in Australia in 2020 and travel to Asia and the Middle East will now be pushed to 2022.

“The band are all fine and send you guys their best wishes, they are very much looking forward to getting back on stage next year and seeing you all so, please, continue to take care of yourselves and stay SMART,” Smallwood finishes.

The rescheduled 2021 tour dates in full are now available on the band’s website.
