Iron Maiden has announced that the “Maiden England” tour is headed to North America beginning June 21st in Charlotte, NC.

Opening for the heavy metal legends will be Alice Cooper for the first leg of the tour (through July 21st), and Coheed and Cambria for the second leg.

On their official website Iron Maiden’s  vocalist Bruce Dickinson commented that, “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 catalogue. 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!”

“Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of Maiden England,” Continued Dickinson, “Including some songs we have not played live in a very, very long time”
