Iron Maiden kicked off their "Legacy of the Beast" tour in Florida last month and is bringing it to the Xcel Energy Center next Monday, August 26th.

For those who been living under a rock or just came out of a long coma, Iron Maiden is one of the premier heavy metal bands. From East London, they have had some pretty good success Worldwide, selling over 100 million albums and still counting.

Expect the best when you take in an Iron Maiden show. This band has played over 2000 shows in the last 49 years.

At one time labeled as Satanists by Christian groups around the World and even prevented from playing in Chile.  The band has always denied this label but with album titles like "Number of the Beast" one can see where some might come to that conclusion. Singer, Bruce Dickinson even denied the Satanist rumors onstage and in a video.
