Iron Maiden Kick Off ‘Book of Souls’ World Tour: includes Set List
The set list, which you can check out in its entirety below, kicked off with “If Eternity Should Fail” (see above) — one of an impressive six tracks pulled from the band’s new double album The Book of Souls.
Before taking the stage, Maiden debuted their show’s opening video, an animated intro clip that plunges the viewer into the jungle, where the band’s brand new Ed Force One plane has been trapped by vines and can’t take off — at least, not until it’s been given a rather large helping hand. You can check that out here.
The band’s been taking extra care to reach out to the fans at home as the Book of Souls Tour begins, posting a slew of behind-the-scenes Periscope videos to their Facebook page — where they also unveiled the set list, one song at a time, with individual graphics for each number. Those planning on attending a stop (or two, or three) on the tour can plan their merch purchases while taking a look at this sneak peek at the booth.
