For our latest Classic Programme feature we head back to 1982 again in order to join the BEAST on the road…

That’s right – we couldn’t really miss Iron Maiden out of this series and here we have a corker of a tour book from the UK Leg of the band’s Beast on the Road Tour.

The Beast on the Road Tour was the band’s largest ever undertaken at that point, with one hundred and eighty four dates played in total. The first twenty shows of the tour took place in the UK, kicking off in Dunstable and ending with a show at the Hammersmith Odeon on March 20, 1982. Were you at any of the shows? Let us know in the comments if you were!

Maiden’s set list at the Hammersmith Show was:
Murders in the Rue Morgue
Run to the Hills
Children of the Damned
The Number of the Beast
Another Life
22 Acacia Avenue
Total Eclipse
Guitar Solo
The Prisoner
Hallowed Be Thy Name
Phantom of the Opera
Iron Maiden
