The metal legends’ manager Rod Smallwood said in a statement: “Naturally the band are hugely disappointed; a second summer without touring, especially with this very special Legacy show, is very hard to take.
“They send their best wishes to you all, knowing full well you fans will feel the same. As we all know, realistically there is no alternative so we will all make the best of it and spend the time preparing for a very memorable and even more spectacular Legacy tour next year, we promise! Until then keep safe and keep smart.”

Earlier this month, Iron Maiden guitarist Adrian Smith said they have some “very, very exciting” things in the pipeline for their fans to enjoy. He said they’ve been working on something that will leave fans “delighted” when it’s revealed.
Smith told SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk: “I think it’ll be worth the wait, put it like that, as far as the Maiden thing goes. There are some very, very exciting things in the pipeline. So that’s all I can say, really … But I think the fans are gonna be delighted.”
Iron Maiden’s last album was 2015’s ‘The Book Of Souls‘.
