Currently ensconced on the “Legacy of the Beast Tour,” British metallers Iron Maiden boast a beast of a legacy, having defined the sound as much as any band, with frontman Bruce Dickinson’s operatic vocals, a triple-guitar attack, and songs as elaborate as the history lessons that often inform their sprawling narratives. See them at 8 p.m. Friday at the MGM Grand Garden. Tickets are $49.50 to $125; call 888-929-7849.
