British heavy metal legends Iron Maiden has announced that they will be embarking on a headlining tour of the United Kingdom next summer. This will be the final leg of the band's "Final Frontier" world tour.

Speaking on the tour, bassist and founder Steve Harris commented: "Everything in the Maiden camp has been so full on these last five years or so that we haven't travelled around the UK to play for our home fans for almost that long. These fans supported us by coming to Twickenham Stadium, Reading and Leeds Festivals, Download and more recently Sonisphere so we thought we should get off our backsides and do the travelling this time and get round the country to see them all. We very much look forward to playing all four home countries and a couple of places we haven’t been for a very long time, Aberdeen and Belfast! And playing the O2 gets us as close to the East End of London where Maiden started off than we have been for many a year, probably since the Ruskin Arms! All in all l think this is going to be a very special series of shows and a wonderful way to end this whole world tour. We intend to take the full stadium show into the UK arenas and fit everything we possibly can into each venue. The set list will be different to this year’s tour. Of course we will play more songs from the new album and some other recent material, but we intend to include a healthy dose of older fan favourites too for those who haven’t seen us before, plus a spectacular light show and stage set, not forgetting, of course, …Eddie!"

The tour dates are as follows:

July 20 - Glasgow, Scotland - SECC
July 21 - Aberdeen, Scotland - AECC P&J Arena
July 23 - Newcastle, England - Metro Radio Arena
