The first leg of IRON MAIDEN's "The Final Frontier World Tour" started last week in Moscow and sees the band travelling "around the world in 66 days", a 50-thousand-mile odyssey aboard Ed Force One, their specially customized Boeing 757, piloted by airline captain and lead singer Bruce Dickinson. The plane will carry band, crew and many tons of equipment across 5 continents to thirteen countries, visiting 26 cities for 29 shows. After the round-the-world dates, the tour continues into Europe before returning to the U.K. in July for an extensive 10-city arena tour covering the length and breadth of the U.K. By the time "The Final Frontier World Tour" finishes in London at the O2 in early August, MAIDEN will have played 101 shows, in 40 countries, to over 2 million fans since the tour began in June 2010.

"The Final Frontier World Tour" is in conjunction with the band's 15th studio album released in August 2010 which went straight to No. 1 in the album charts in 28 countries worldwide. This week the band received a Grammy Award for "Best Metal Performance" for the song "El Dorado", from "The Final Frontier" album.
