Iron Maiden has announced that they will hit the road in North America on the Maiden England World Tour, which kicks off June 21 in Charlotte, N.C. Joining them for a leg of the jaunt will be classic rocker - and shocker - Alice Cooper.
The tour will resemble the 1988 Maiden concert video of the same name, shot on the "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son" Tour.
"We have great fun playing the 'History of Maiden Tours' because it gives us an opportunity between new albums to go out and play songs from our earlier catalog," frontman Bruce Dickinson said in a release. "It's always fantastic seeing the crowd reaction from a new generation of fans who have never experienced some of these tracks performed live before, and of course we know our longstanding fans will enjoy seeing the original Seventh Son Tour re-visited - with many other surprises!"
Cooper will be the supporting act until July 21, and Coheed and Cambria will take over on the rest of the dates.
