Even if you saw this tour before the pandemic, you haven’t seen this exact show before. Maiden have revamped some of the set list to make way for three inclusions from their 2021 album, which feature at the very top of the show, visually supported by new pieces of the stage that help connect further with the Eastern imagery of the exciting album cover.

Speaking of that artwork, Samurai Eddie also appears on stage as the iconic undead mascot adopts Senjutsu samurai look. Much like singer Bruce DickinsonEddie even has some wardrobe changes during the show, which show up again later.

At the relatively new age of 64, Dickinson’s voice remains hugely powerful and fully capable of delivering high throughout the 15-song set, which you can also watch below (warning: spoilers ahead).
