Iron Maiden (opens in new tab) have extended The Legacy Of The Beast tour into 2020.

The band had previously been confirmed as headliners for the UK’s Download festival in June next year (opens in new tab) – but they've just added a bunch of new dates which will take place in Australia, Japan, Europe and Russia.

They’ll be joined in Australia by special guests Killswitch Engage (opens in new tab), while Airbourne (opens in new tab), Alter Bridge (opens in new tab), Avatar (opens in new tab), Disturbed (opens in new tab), Within Temptation (opens in new tab) and Lord Of The Lost will join Maiden on select dates across Europe.

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson says: "We’ve had a fantastic time on the Legacy tour so far, and the reaction everywhere to the stage show and all the crazy props – and Eddie – I get to play with has been phenomenal. 

"The whole band has been having such fun we’re really excited to bring this production back out on the road next year.”

Find a list of dates below. 

Meanwhile, Iron Maiden and Robinsons Brewery have released a new collection of Trooper beer to mark the news that 25 million pints of the amber nectar have been poured since it launched in 2013.

Trooper: The Collection includes the core range of Trooper, Sun And Steel and Light Brigade, along with three limited editions: Trooper 666, which first arrived in 2015, Red ’N’ Black which debuted in 2016, and 2017’s Hallowed.

Two bottles of each are included in the box, which has been designed to look like an equipment case.

Trooper brand manager Sam Kennerley says: “Is there any better way to celebrate 25 million pints sold of Trooper than by releasing all of our beers in one collection for the very first time? 

“We are asked daily when we are going to be re-releasing certain beers, so this is an opportunity for fans to get their hands on every beer in our collection to date!”

The box set of beers is available to pre-order through Amazon. Find details below.
