After one final U.S. tour stop tonight in San Antonio, Iron Maiden will close out their work year by taking the Legacy of the Beast tour to Mexico and South America. They've also been announced as one of the headliners for the U.K.'s 2020 Download festival. You can get complete show and ticket information at the band's official website.
Singer Bruce Dickinson won't stay idle for long after the tour wraps. He recently announced an 18-date What Does This Button Do? speaking tour of Europe based on his 2017 autobiography. So far only one North American city is on his itinerary: Toronto on Nov. 23.
In other Iron Maiden news, the most recent entry in the band's burgeoning beer line, the sake-infused Sun and Steel, is due to hit U.S. stores next month. "The team at Robinsons [brewery] have had to become mad scientists to make this work," Dickinson said. "But the end result is a really unique hybrid beer that tastes fantastic."
