Iron Maiden To Tour in 2012

Iron Maiden fans rejoice! This news should improve your weekend tenfold. So we don’t know when, and we don’t know where, but Iron Maiden are planning to tour this year.

In a recent interview at the 2012 NAMM convention in Anaheim, Calif., Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain told 96.7 KCAL Rocks that the band has a tour in their sights. When asked what’s going on with the band, McBrain said, “Well, we’re taking some time off and we’re gonna go back out on tour sometime this year. We’re not sure yet when.” He went on to say that it probably won’t be a world tour this time around, only a “little tour” and a “short run.” “We’re not sure yet when,” reiterated McBrain.

When asked about possible West Coast dates, McBrain stuck to his answer, singing, “Don’t know where, don’t know when.” So if you haven’t noticed the theme here yet, the tour is coming, just don’t ask where or when.

McBrain, who had a hard time focusing on the interview with all of the eye candy walking around NAMM, told fans to keep any eye on the Iron Maiden website for the official tour announcement.

Maiden is getting ready to release their new blu-Ray, two-DVD set and double soundtrack album ‘En Vivo!’ on March 26. You can watch the trailer here. ‘En Vivo!’ was filmed on April 10, 2011 in front of over 50,000 fans at the Estadio Nacional, Santiago during their ‘The Final Frontier World Tour.’

Feb. 15 Update: Iron Maiden have announced dates for a full North American tour. See details here.
