Iron Maiden Iron Maiden has revealed plans to tour in 2016 in support of their forthcoming album, The Book of Souls, set for release next Friday (Sept. 4). Details are being finalized, but the band says via their website that the “Book of Souls World Tour” will open with three shows in the U.S. in late February, and will then touch down in Central America, Mexico and South America, before returning to North America for 10 more dates in the U.S. and Canada. Beginning in April, the group will then head for Japan, China, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Europe. The group is leasing a Boeing 747-400 Jumbo Jet for the trek. Singer Bruce Dickinson—a certified pilot—is currently in training to get a license to fly the massive jet liner. The Book of Souls is Iron Maiden’s first studio album since 2010’s The Final Frontier.
