Iron Maiden is looking to perform its entire Senjutsu album in its entirety. Senjutsu, which is Maiden's 17th studio set, was released last September and hit Number Three on the Billboard Top 200.
Blabbermouth transcribed frontman Bruce Dickinson's recent chat on Chris Jericho's Talk Is Jericho podcast, in which he revealed, “The plan we've got — it's not really a secret; We've talked about doing the entire album start to finish, but not this time around. And we all appreciate that that is something that really diehard fans will probably love and other people will go, 'Hmmm, I'm not gonna go see that.' So the answer is you play smaller venues so that they sell out with just your diehard fans. 'Cause it's a musical thing to do — it's a musical thing.” Dickinson said that this time out, fans can expect the band to tackle the first three tunes from the album — “The Writing On The Wall,” “Strategy,” and “Sejutsu.”
Itron Maiden's North American dates kick off on September 7th in Mexico City, Mexico at Foro Sol and wrap over six weeks later on October 27th at Tampa, Florida's Amalie Arena.
