Hahaha good luck, you're never going to be able to manage that. Especially if you plan on being on this board at all.

I have no such intention to have willpower at all. If anyone is posting the setlist as it happens, I'll be looking for it.

Aren't they playing in Denver this tour? You can take a road trip or even catch a short flight from where you live to see them. You gotta do something so everyone doesn't have to hear you continually bitch about how you won't be able to see them:D

I'm making the close to 4 hour drive to see them in Pittsburgh. If they aren't coming to you, you've gotta go to them.

Manky, there's always ways to make some extra cash. Do you have any used CDs, DVDs or video games you don't want anymore? You can seel them. What about a garage sale? There's gotta be shit lying around your place, or the place of someone you know, that you can pawn. I wouldn't rule out male prostitution just yet but you should save that as the last option:D

I actually wouldn't mind some VXI material, so long as the picked the right songs (not boring/mehdiocre + work well with Bruce's voice: Futureal, The Clansman, The Educated Fool, Como Estais Amigo) Could be interesting, but then again I'm sure it's not the case. :tongue:

Ya. So far the Blaze songs they've done have worked GREAT with Bruce's vocals. He improved them by about 97897893475893475%. I would LOVE to hear Lightning Strikes Twice, Blood On The World's Hands, and The Edge Of Darkness with Bruce!

Eh, I thought Sign of the Cross was probably better suited to Blaze's voice. But from I remember, the Clansman, and Lord of the Flies were pretty damn good.

Wooo, I could really go for this. Really I shouldn't complain because 2/4 of the Maiden shows I've seen were album tours, but I am still pumped. I could definitely go for seeing a few of those again and finally seeing Brave New World material that isn't the title track. Also - less hits means less casual fan douchebaggery allowing me to better enjoy the show.

This. I figured we might have a tracklisting, album cover, or something else at this point.

I really hoped they would do the smart thing and release the first single (presumably the one they're going to play on tour) on the day before the tour kicked off. That way everyone would get a chance to hear it before the tour stated. I guess it could still happen, but with such little info out there, seems doubtful.

Ya for sure. Look at what Rush did. They released 2 songs that they plan to play on the upcoming tour from an album that's not even complete yet! Maiden's new album is not only completed, but it's mastered. Oh well. I'll take a bootleg live version over nothing! :rocker:

On their own tours, yes - but they specifically said they plan to keep it very regimented on this tour. Expect to see practically no night-to-night changes.

Song-wise I'd expect them to keep it to shorter (8 minutes or less) songs for the set, and also focus on more straight forward and heavier songs. "As I Am", "A Rite of Passage", and "Pull Me Under" are probably the most likely songs - which I have no problem with.

What will you do if it's Caught Somewhere In Time? Lol.
