What happened at Iron Maiden's first Book Of Souls show

Iron Maiden started the Book Of Souls tour last night in Florida

Last night in Sunrise, Florida, the mighty Iron Maiden kicked off their Book Of Souls world tour to a sold-out BB&T Arena.

It's the Irons' first show since 2014 and the first time anyone on the planet heard songs from Book Of Souls live. Of course, before the band could launch into any music, there was the small matter of an intro video...

If you've had even a passing interest in Iron Maiden over the past 12 months you'll surely know their new-found passion for all things Mayan, so it wasn't a surprise to see a bloody Eddie-inspired temple onstage!

But how do you start such momentous show? How about If Eternity Should Fail into Speed Of Light?! Maiden know how it's done. 

They've even got a giant smoking pot on stage. We're not sure what's in there, maybe Bruce is showing off the secret brewing process of Trooper?

The real question, though, is what did they play? That's the question we all want answering because there's a pretty strong chance you're going to watch Maiden on their mammoth world tour. Here's what Florida were handed – including some songs that haven't been performed live since 2009!
