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”…
