(Classic Rock) Iron Maiden have announced a further European leg of their Book Of Souls World Tour for 2017 - with a string of UK shows included. A total of 16 dates have been announced, kicking off in Antwerp, Belgium, on April 22 before three shows in Germany, eight in England, two in Scotland and one each in Ireland and Wales. The UK leg marks Maiden's first full UK arena tour in six years.

The Antwerp gig marks Maiden's first appearance in the city since the Killers tour in 1981. The German leg sees Maiden perform in Oberhausen, Frankfurt and Hamburg before dates in Nottingham, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds, Newcastle, Liverpool, Birmingham, London, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Cardiff and Dublin.

Shinedown will be the support act on all 16 dates. Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris says: "As it's been so long since our last full UK arena tour, we really wanted to get to our fans in as many cities as possible.

"We're really looking forward to it, especially visiting places we haven't been to for a very long time like Leeds where we haven't played since 2005 and Liverpool where we haven't played since 1990.

"The whole band is really enjoying this tour and although we love playing festivals and stadiums, it is terrific to return to the intimacy and atmosphere of arenas.

"The songs from The Book Of Souls album and the new Maya-themed Eddies and stage sets have gone down really well and fan reaction has been amazing.

"And of course we know our fans appreciate us playing a lot of the older songs too, which we will continue to do." Read more and see the dates here.
