Iron Maiden is embarking on The Future Past tour in Europe starting in May 2023. Usually, they announce a European tour, then they hit North America the next year. That trend might be broken because they’ve announced Western Canadian tour dates to go with their headlining appearance at the Power Trip festival in Southern California.

28th September – Calgary AB, Scotiabank Saddledome
30th September – Edmonton AB, Rogers Place
2nd October – Vancouver BC, Rogers Arena

Here’s what Rod Smallwood had to say about the three Canadian dates they’ve added.

“As a prelude to our appearance at the Power Trip Festival in Indio, CA in October we’re delighted to bring our Future Past shows to our fans in Western Canada. It’s been quite a few years since we were last there and audiences are always terrific. We look forward to seeing you all again. The European leg starts very soon and personally I can’t wait to finally hear a lot more of Senjutsu and delve deeper into Somewhere in Time!”

Tickets for these three shows go on sale Friday, April 28th. For Iron Maiden Fan Club Members, they’re having a presale on Tuesday, April 25th.

Now, this seems like a pretty strange thing to do. If the Power Trip show is supposed to be a one-off before a tour next year, Iron Maiden doesn’t usually just add shows willy-nilly. This could be the prelude for a US tour in the Fall of 2023. We’ll have to see how Iron Maiden goes about this. Let’s hope that US and North American fans that they get a dose of Iron Maiden on this upcoming tour.

The Future Past Tour starts on Sunday, May 28th, 2023 in Slovenia and continues through August at the Wacken Open Air festival. Then it makes a pit stop in Canada and California for these new dates and Power Trip.

The Future Past Tour is all about their albums Senjutsu and Somewhere In Time. They only really got to play songs off Senjutsu for the second leg of the Legacy of the Beast World Tour.
