Iron Maiden has once again topped Billboard's Hot Tours chart. The publication reports that the veteran metal band earned this week's top ranking on the strength of the final dates of their European summer tour.

The band launched their Maiden England tour in 2012 in celebration of the anniversary of their acclaimed Maiden England home video which was filmed during their 1988 Seventh Tour of a Seventh Tour world wide trek in support of their "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son" album.

The band kicked off this chart topping leg in May and the final six shows of the trek earned $8.5 million from 121,280 tickets sold, giving the band the top spot on the Hot Tours chart.

Iron Maiden closed out the tour with a sold out two night stand at the O2 Arena in London on August 3rd and 4th and the band will next embark on a short run of dates in North and South America that will bring the epic world tour to a close on October 2nd. See who else made the chart here.
