Last night, Thursday, June 21st, IRON MAIDEN kicked off their North American Maiden England Tour in Charlotte, NC at The Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. Footage from the show has surfaced online, and can be seen below:
Iron Maiden's setlist was as follows:
'Can I Play With Madness'
'2 Minutes To Midnight'
'Afraid To Shoot Strangers'
'The Number Of The Beast'
'Phantom Of The Opera'
'Run To The Hills'
'Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son'
'Fear Of The Dark'
'The Evil That Men Do'
North American fans are poised to witness a massive visit from British metal icons Iron Maiden. And it's another vital history lesson. The Maiden England World Tour will closely mirror, in terms of production and content, the original 1988 concert video of the same name, shot on the Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour. This opening section of the World Tour is the band’s most extensive visit to North America for many years and marks the third chapter in the History of Iron Maiden, a journey which began in 2004 with The Early Days DVD and subsequent 2005 Early Days Tour. Part Two followed in 2008 with the Live After Death DVD - the seminal 1984 concert recorded at Los Angeles' Long Beach Arena during the World Slavery Tour - and the band embarking on their groundbreaking Somewhere Back In Time World Tour 2008/9, which saw them play to over two million fans in almost 40 countries.
