Iron Maiden legend Steve Harris will embark on a six-date tour in December 2019 with his band British Lion.
The short club tour opens at Norwich Waterfront on Sunday 15th December and call in at Manchester, Chester, Nottingham and Colchester before culminating at London O2 Islington Academy five days before Christmas. Support comes from Voodoo Six and Nine Miles Down.
Fresh from wrapping up the 2019 leg of Iron Maiden’s Legacy of the Beast Tour in Santiago, Chile earlier this month, Steve Harris says: “I’m in the UK in December and thought it would be great to take British Lion out on the road for a few shows while I’m here.
“We haven’t played any in England since 2017 and as most people know, I love getting out and playing live whenever I can, so this seemed a good opportunity to fit some dates in.
“The set-list will be a mixture of songs from the first British Lion album and new songs from our upcoming second album which is due to be released early next year. We’ll be announcing full details of that very shortly.”
Tickets to the opening five dates are on sale from British Lion’s official website. The London date follows on Saturday.
British Lion play the following shows:
Norwich Waterfront – Sun 15th
Manchester Club Academy – Mon 16th
Chester The Live Rooms – Tue 17th
Nottingham Rescue Rooms – Wed 18th
Colchester Arts Centre – Thu 19th
London O2 Islington Academy – Fri 20th
