(hennemusic) Iron Maiden have announced dates for a 2017 UK tour in support of 2015's "The Book Of Souls." The band's first major UK arena tour in six years will be preceded next spring by a series of European arena shows starting in Antwerp, Belgium on April 22, marking the group's first visit to the city since 1981.

A dozen UK arena dates will begin May 4 at Nottingham's Motorpoint Arena, with Shinedown opening all 16 shows of the spring 2017 trek. "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," says bassist and founder Steve Harris. "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." See the dates here.
