Bruce Dickinson has confirmed that IRON MAIDEN is planning to stage a tour where it will perform its new album, "Senjutsu", in its entirety.

The 63-year-old singer discussed MAIDEN's future touring plans during an appearance on the latest episode of the "Talk Is Jericho" podcast, hosted by FOZZY frontman and wrestling superstar Chris Jericho.
Bruce said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): "The plan we've got - it's not really a secret; I think everybody else has chatted about it — we will, I hope, we've talked about doing the entire ['Senjutsu'] album start to finish, but not this time around. And we all appreciate that that is something that really diehard fans will probably love and other people will go, 'Hmmm, I'm not gonna go see that.' So the answer is you play smaller venues so that they sell out with just your diehard fans. 'Cause it's a musical thing to do — it's a musical thing."
Dickinson went on to clarify that the 2022 leg of MAIDEN's "Legacy Of The Beast" tour, which is scheduled to kick off in late May in Zagreb, Croatia, will once again focus primarily on a decades-spanning setlist of fan favorites.
IRON MAIDEN are set to play Sofia, bulgaria on 13 July 2022.
