The first time I ever saw Maiden in concert was a month earlier in Dallas. I believe Vinnie Vincent was the opener.

Awesome! My family moved to a new town in Illinois during the time of this tour and I missed it. I have still never forgiven my mom for this!

Fortunately, I caught the World Slavery Tour and the Seventh Tour of a Seventh Tour.

You have a couple of awesome songs there that I have not heard live. Nice job!

Thanks for posting this!

Well, Bruce probably used that line on every tour at every LA area show, but if you're talking about the Live After Death album that was from the Powerslave tour in 1985 which still (almost 25 years later) makes my top 3 list of concerts ever attended. I enjoyed the Somewhere in Time tour as well but, in my opinion, there is no comparison to the World Slavery Tour.

Yeah it was the Vinnie Vincent Invasion opening that tour. By the way, has anyone seen the "Boyz are Gonna Rock" video lately? Talk about over the top 80's hair metal excess - highly recommended (for laughs)...

I've seen the Powerslave, Somewhere In Time and the Seventh Sun tours and for me the Somewhere in Time tour was the best of the three for stage show and song selection. I don't remember Where Eagles Dare being played but I seem to remember Maiden playing The Prisoner on this tour. I snuck in a small tape recorder into this concert and got a bootleg of the show but i seem to have lost the tape over the last 22 years or so, I've looked everywhere for it but no luck. I also had a bootleg of Metallica's Master of Puppets Tour and cant find it either. Sucks.

Damn I wish i was 18 again and be able to go to these shows and rock out again (without ear plugs...lol) but on the bright side now i get to enjoy these shows again by taking my 12 year old son. I took him to crue fest 2 for his first concert and thinking about taking him to KISS but I really should have taken him to see the Maiden SBINT tour.

I've got some bootlegs from the SIT tour and Bruce's vocals are HORRIBLE! He practically talks his way through Hallowed.

I've only heard the Philly '87 boot but I don't think he hits any of the correct notes in CSIT. :hecho: Although, in his defense, they were touring nonstop and CSIT seems like it'd be hard as hell to sing, especially as an opener before you're even warm.

Edit: And even if Bruce didn't sound great on this tour, I'd still give my left nut to go back in time and see it. :light:

I think it would be so cool to see maiden on tour do a medley of like 15 songs that they rarely play from all their albums especially from the 90's for those fans that stuck by them after the 7th sun album til the last tour where they seem to become popular again and lets not forget anything off of killers

I saw them "Somewhere On Tour" in Portland, Oregon in February of 1987. Vinnie Vincent opened for them. As I recall, the opener originally was Lizzy Borden, but they were kicked off of the tour (or something like that)..................................

S.I.T. was truly a memorable show. My ears rang for three days afterwards. I also saw Maiden during the "No Prayer On The Road Tour". That time, Anthrax opened for them. The show was in a small place, too; The Armory in Salem, Oregon. The "No Prayer" songs were good, as well as the other usual favorites. But once again, "Heaven Can Wait" :flame: just about brought the house down. S.I.T. is my absolute favorite Maiden disc. Number of The Beast is my second favorite.

Interesting to see this dug up haha

I hope if Maiden does another History tour we can get at least THREE, call me crazy!, Somewhere In Time songs! Until then I'm still seeing them four times in 2011!

Wow such a great setlist; imo Maiden MUST play Caught Somewhere in Time and Stranger in Strange Land before they retire; both are great underrated songs off a great album:rocker:

I know Alexander the Great is on the back of their minds somewhere, because they have referenced it before. There was one time where Bruce hummed it in front of the Greek crowd and stuff.

I think they'll do it one day.

I believe he also sang the chorus by himself between songs at one of the South American shows on the SBIT tour.

Totally agree. Seeing Revelations live on that tour was incredible. I saw it twice and was hoping for some different songs but we got the same set in the same exact order. it was still incredible, just wanted to hear a few gems live like Flash of the Blade, The Prisoner or Children of the Damned to mix it up. Lucky I got to see The Prisoner and Children of the Damned when they opened for Priest but they're still 2 of my all-time favorite Maiden tracks

I have a boot from Colston Hall in Bristol, England sometime in 1986. By the way Bruce talks to the crowd it semms like SIT just came out. Bruce's voice is excellent on it. He doesn't have much of a problem with anything. A couple of the songs got cut short and so was some of the applause between them but that's how boots go sometimes:mad:

The setlist was:

Caught Somewhere In Time
2 Minutes To Midnight
Sea Of Madness
Children Of The Damned
Stranger In A Strange Land
Wasted Years
Rime Of The Ancient Mariner
Where Eagles Dare
Heaven Can Wait
Phantom Of The Opera
Hallowed Be Thy Name
Iron Maiden
The Number Of The Beast
Run To The Hills
Running Free
Sanctuary

One of Maiden's best sets ever done and on the top of my list as far as favorite bootlegs go:horns:

Amazing setlist. SIT is my 2nd or 3rd Maiden album behind Powerslave and probly NOTB. I think its a really overlooked album.

I think the majority of Maiden fans enjoy SIT very much. I know a few people who have that as their favorite Maiden album. It's thrid on my list behind SSOASS and POM.

Now it's overlooked by the band when it comes to their setlists without a doubt. But HCW was a regular all the way up through the 90s and along with WY was played on the SBIT tour. Still, more from SIT is never ever a bad thing:rocker:

I wonder if Bruce and his dislike of the album is the main reason that they don't do many SiT songs live?

Which is why he hums and kazoos lines from ATG in second world countries?

HCW and WY are both in my top 5 Maiden songs. I would kill to see them play either one live. I drove 10 hours to see them last summer, and walked away a little upset about the set.

So you really don't believe me? There are a number of interviews that prove what I'm saying, hell just look on the footage from the bonus disc to LAD and he clearly says that synthesizers don't belong in heavy metal. He had no writing credits on the album and I know I've read an interview where he said SiT could have been great but it ended up being "just another Maiden album."

The easy to find synth clip, taken during the Powerslave tour I believe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yiy8Ji0EYzo

Edit: Looking for one of the interviews.

I would love to see them play this (WED). Of the 5 -6 times I've seen them, they've not had it in their set.
