fans, get ready! “Ed Force One” will be flying across the United States and Canada this summer for the MAIDEN ENGLAND 2012 North America tour.

Alice Cooper will be supporting Iron Maiden for the first half of the tour, up until 21 July at Cadott, Wisconsin. Coheed and Cambria are the support band for the remainder of the dates, from 24 July onwards.

Select tickets for the 32 date tour went on sale at 10am today, including six of the seven Canadian dates – Québec City, Montreal, Sarnia, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. Tickets are on sale via Live Nation and Ticketmaster. Tickets for the Sarnia date are on sale via Sarnia Bayfest.

The rest of the US dates and Toronto go on sale TOMORROW, Saturday 3 March at 10am via Live Nation. Full dates are listed below. Quick link to Toronto tickets.

Inspiration for the Maiden England tour’s setlist and stage show will largely be based upon the 1989 live tour VHS video of the same name, from their 1998 7th tour of a 7th world tour in support of their ’88 album Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son. Expect plenty of other hit Maiden songs too, like “Killers”…

You walk through the subway and his eyes burn a hole in your back!

    As an old school fan from the early 80’s I am very much looking forward to this tour! Hoping and praying they play some key songs from the original 88 tour, most importantly STILL LIFE, THE PRISONER and SEVENTH SON OF A SEVENTH SON all of which havent been performed since that tour!
    Up the Irons!

    Going to Toronto and hoping Sarnia too, stoked!

    Seventh Son is totally underrated + underplayed so its gonna be awesome to hear it live!

    UP THE IRONS!!! \m/
