Sorry, Judas. Missed this one.
Maiden's album tours will definitely depend on your opinion on that particular album. They often go all-out with them. I personally like The Book of Souls, and thought the songs went down pretty well. The title track got a great response both times, and "If Eternity Should Fail" is a pretty cool opener (Maiden's first song in drop D, funnily enough).
I would assume Minny should be seeing more shows in the future. It's a shame they hadn't come there in such a long time, unless you count that Cadot, Wisconsin show a few years back (I'm not sure how far away that is exactly). The Minny show sold out quickly, by the way.
The rumor for the next tour is a greatest hits-type thing, maybe one that revolves around the soundtrack for the new video game. It could all-encompassing, possibly a tour that hits most (if not all) albums. Plus, they might be in the studio by the end of the year, so I wouldn't be surprised to see a new single get some play too. They debuted "Wildest Dreams" and "El Dorado" on tours like that because the albums hadn't been released yet.
