To the delight of many, they are back. Iron Maiden at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City on August 7th with their brand new Legacy of the Beast tour.
Very popular in the Quebec City area, each concert by rock/metal icons Iron Maiden at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City is a unique event with the excitement of the atmosphere the crowd brings. Quebec is recognized worldwide as one of the cities where metal / rock music is the most popular, such bands like Metallica, Megadeth and Iron Maiden always include a stop in the old capital when planning their respective tours. So it’s no surprise that the group founded by bassist Steve Harris and guitarist Dave Murray in 1975 in England will once again thrill Quebec’s many fans once again.
The tour is named after the band’s mobile game launched in 2017 and, according to their manager Rod Smallwood, will include several songs from the first Iron Maiden albums released in the 1980s. Spectators who will be present are likely to be eligible for several forgotten classics like Flight of Icarus and Sign of the Cross.

Although not part of the original band, it is now largely associated with singer Bruce Dickinson because of his voice that fits perfectly with the sound of the band. Despite having reached the age of 60 last August, Dickinson is still able to interpret the most vocally demanding songs. We will surely be able to headbang, perhaps for the last time, to all the greatest hits of one of the most influential rock bands like Run to the HIlls, Fear of the Dark and Number of the Beast.
What is less certain is that the once energetic singer was able to run from one end of the stage to the other several times in a song, as he had done in the past. During their last visit to Quebec City in July 2017, the same evening as Muse closed the 50th edition of the Quebec City Summer Festival on the Plains of Abraham, the group had offered a performance definitely up to their reputation, in front of a public wild public.
