English heavy metal legends Iron Maiden will return to the White River Amphitheatre this summer, bringing their Maiden England North American World Tour to Auburn on July 30.

The tour will mirror, in terms of production and content, the concert video "Maiden England" which was filmed during the band's 1988 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son concert tour.

"We have great fun playing the History of Maiden Tours because it gives us an opportunity between new albums to go out and play songs from our earlier catalogue," Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson said. "It's always fantastic seeing the crowd reaction from a new generation of fans who have never experienced some of these tracks performed live before, and of course we know our longstanding fans will enjoy seeing the original Seventh Son Tour re-visited – with many other surprises! Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of Maiden England, including some songs we have not played live in a very,very long time, plus other favorites we just know the fans are going to want to hear. We always try to give our fans a great show musically, but we have always tried to make it as entertaining and memorable an experience as we can visually. And we all feel this show is going to do that splendidly."

The band will be supported by progressive rockers Coheed and Cambria for the White River show.

Tickets are expected to go on sale March 2 or 3 through Ticketmaster, according to ironmaiden.com
