Iron Maiden to return to New Zealand in 2024 for the Future Past Tour with special guests Killswitch Engage.

Following their spectacular performances this year across Europe, in Western Canada and at the recent PowerTrip Festival in California, iconic British band IRON MAIDEN will be bringing THE FUTURE PAST TOUR to New Zealand next year. This will be the first return to New Zealand since the band touched down on Ed Force One for their 2016-17 The Book of Souls Tour.


Monday 16 September: AUCKLAND, Spark Arena

General on-sale tickets will be available from 11:00am on Tuesday 24th October.

Special guests for The Future Past Tour New Zealand show are American metallers Killswitch Engage.

THE FUTURE PAST TOUR, which includes songs from both the band’s most recent studio album Senjutsu as well as 1986’s seminal album Somewhere In Time, alongside other fan favourites, played to over 750,000 fans at more than 30 sold-out shows across Europe in the summer of 2023. Featuring one of the most spectacular stage productions of the band’s career, it received rave reviews in every city and country that IRON MAIDEN visited.

Bassist Steve Harris says, “We’ve really enjoyed playing all the shows on THE FUTURE PAST TOUR this year, and the reaction from our fans has been incredible. Being able to play some of these songs for the very first time has made the tour even more memorable, and we can’t wait to continue it next year. We’re all really excited to finally be able to return to New Zealand, as we know our fans have waited so patiently for us over the past few years. It’s going to be great to get back there, especially with this new show. We promise you all, it’ll be worth the wait!”

Manager Rod Smallwood comments, “All our best-laid plans to bring the Legacy Of The Beast Tour to New Zealand were derailed by the shut-down of the live music industry during covid, but we assured everyone at the time that we would come back to New Zealand, and as our fans know, we always keep to our promises. So, as you would imagine, we’re very much looking forward to bringing this amazing new show to the Southern Hemisphere and giving our loyal New Zealand fans the best Maiden show we can. You can be assured it’s worth the wait. See you all in 2024!”
