Legendary metal band Iron Maiden made a new official COVID-19 announcement on their Facebook account and saddened the community with the statement.
As you might remember, Iron Maiden postponed their Oceanic tours in March, and Japan tour in April 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak. Also, they stated that the fans should hold on to their tickets for a further date.
However, the manager of the band, Rod Smallwood, shared another statement and said that Iron Maiden canceled their all 2020 tours. Furthermore, he stated that they have no intention to play before June 2021.
Here is what Rob Smallwood said:
“I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and well, wherever you may be, and my continued thanks to you all for bearing with us so patiently.
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.”
“Firstly, we are very pleased to tell you that we’ve managed to reschedule all our European own-shows on the Legacy Of The Beast tour for June/July 2021 with the exception of Moscow, St Petersburg, Weert and Zurich which unfortunately we have been unable to re-arrange in this period…
…In respect of what should have been the opening leg of the 2020 tour starting on May 1 in Perth, Australia, and visiting New Zealand, the Philippines, Japan, Dubai and Israel, we are currently working on a possible return to as many of these countries as we can…”
“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…”
