Get your earplugs ready - Iron Maiden are coming back to Dublin.

The iconic metal band will be playing Dublin's 3Arena next June in support of their most recent album 'Senjutsu', and the band have said the tour will have a focus on their brilliant 1986 album 'Somewhere In Time'.

England's finest metal band will play the 3Arena on June 24th next year, with tickets going on sale on October 14th.

Founder member and bassist Steve Harris said "following the release of our latest album, Senjutsu, we updated the current Legacy of the Beast Tour a little by opening the show with the first 3 songs from it, with the Japanese Palace stage set."

"As it doesn’t make a lot of sense to repeat this for a Senjutsu album tour, we thought about other options and we’ve decided to revisit Somewhere In Time as that tour didn’t feature in the various retrospective history tours we’ve played over the years."

"We have had lots of requests from fans over the years for many tracks on it so we are now going to play them, plus of course a few others we know you will like!"

"2023 is going to be an exciting time and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone again in the UK, Ireland and around Europe," he added.

Iron Maiden have secured themselves in rock history as one of the biggest - and loudest - acts of all time, with an army of classic tracks such as 'Fear Of The Dark' 'Run To The Hills' '2 Minutes To Midnight' and 'Bring Your Daughter... To The Slaughter' under their belts.

'Senjutsu' topped the album charts in over 20 countries, showing that fan demand for Iron Maiden is still as high now as it was in their 80s heyday.

The band hasn't played Dublin since 2017, so fans will be eager to see Bruce Dickinson and the gang in action.

Tickets priced from €85.50 go on sale from Ticketmaster on Friday, 14th October at 9am.
