Iron Maiden will continue touring heavily in promotion of their latest album well into next year, with 34 tour dates across Europe and the U.K. announced on Monday. Their spring 2018 run will start out in Tallinn, Estonia on May 26, and will see them headlining arenas and festivals throughout the summer until it wraps on Aug. 10 with a gig in their hometown at London’s O2 Arena.

The announcement of next year’s Euro-tour follows what has been hectic two years for the classic heavy metal band. They released their sixteenth studio album with Book of Souls back in September 2015, and spent most of the following year playing 58 concerts in an impressive 34 countries. Their 2017 campaign saw much of the same for Bruce Dickinson and the boys, as they continued touring throughout the summer performing in arenas and amphitheaters across North America and Europe.

"We've been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian [Smith] rejoined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with ‘History/Hits’ tours," Iron Maiden’s manager said a statement on the band's website. "I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.”

Speaking of Bruce Dickinson, the legendary frontman of the band spent his 2017 fall months touring in promotion of his new autobiography, What Does This Button Do?, which was released back in mid-October. Published via Harper Collins, the new book chronicles the life of one of rock's most respected singers, in addition to an accomplished airline pilot, motivational speaker, scriptwriter, novelist and of course, a beer brewer
