It's not coming to America besides the two gigs in Florida so you won't have to worry.;) I'm really liking this set so far, a lot of songs from the '10 tour but that's to be expected. My source just said S15 and then El Dorado so I really hope he meant S15/TFF.

Is that official? I mean I know there's no other dates confirmed, but are they actually skipping the country on the album tour completely?

I actually like this set so far. Of course, I wasn't expecting them to do anyting that shocking. But at least POM and PS are being represented this time around even if it's the same two songs they always do off them.

For the record, I love When The Wild Wind Blows:D

typical standards, the more lame songs off the new album (especially when the wild wind blows). nice to see dance of death and wicker man kept though

If the 2010 Summer tour would've never happened this would be a great setlist, but being that it did, and I just saw the majority of these songs last summer, many not even for the first time, this is pretty lame. Also, only 4 tracks off the new album?

Still not as good as the last US tour though.

Maiden33
02-11-2011, 11:13 AM
I should note that I don't have an issue with them playing any of the songs they are playing (except for maybe WTWWB). I'm just upset because honestly there's only 6 songs on TFF I really love, and of those 6, 4 of them are excluded from this set - and that means they're never gonna be played live.

IrritatedTrout
02-11-2011, 11:15 AM
Hallowed now. If they add a rarity to the encore it'll go from very, very good to great. Fingers crossed.


I think my source's phone battery died. Also, according to Setlist.fm Maiden is now playing a song called "AGUANTE ARGENTINA CARAJO".:lol:

Maideneer
02-11-2011, 11:20 AM
"AGUANTE ARGENTINA CARAJO".

That's just some dick screwing with the set. It's off now. Maiden won't even play anything off Killers, they're gonna play a foreign song?

I'm not surprised Starblind didn't make it. It's a very good song but Bruce does jam a lot of words into that song so it might be hard to pull off live. The only new one i'm disappointed that isn't there is Mother Of Mercy. It's my favorite on TFF and I thought it was a song that would be played.

Other than that like a few others said, it's a good mix of new and old Maiden. The old stuff was placed well inbetween the newer material which is better than how they did it last summer and on the AMOLAD tour.

The only song from the new album I don't care for is the final frontire.
I like BNW,DOD,AMOLAD and TFF as much as 80's Maiden so the set is cool with me.

02-11-2011, 11:42 AM
In an interview last year Bruce mentioned the new songs he would like to have performed and they were all the same ones that showed up on this setlist. The older songs are not surprising. The Evil that men do has to go. Why they consider that a classic is beyond me. Not bad but not as iconic as trooper or two minutes. If they have to play something from seventh son they should play Infinite dreams. The Wicker Man is a good song but really only works as an opener. (Although they put it in the middle of the set during the Give Me Ed tour too.) They should play Mother of Mercy or Starblind instead of Dance of Death. I wonder if Satellite 15 translated well live. To be honest I'm glad I went to last year's tour since it had more songs I love more than this one. But the next show is four days away and they have been known to change the set for the second show.

Dissapointed set if you saw the 2010 tour (as Maiden33 mentionned) but still a kick ass show to go see. But I'm happy I didn't spent 800$ bucks for the trip\tickets\hotel for florida. I would go see this anywhere within driving distance but not by plane.The fact that they don't play Starblind is beyond me

I love this site so I know better than going to see Maiden and thinking there is a chance of hearing Revelations, The Prisoner, Children of the Damned, Rue Morgue, Aces High, 22 Acacia Avenue or any of the songs that made them the huge band they are today. In all my years I've never known a band to regurgitate songs like this. Would it kill them to pull out a few gems for the "real" fans?

Really serious this time. Write every Maiden song on a small piece of paper, mix it up and pull them from a hat. I GUARANTEE you get a setlist that smokes this one. Just sayin'

So out of Coming Home, The Talisman, and Wild Wind Blows you only like 1 of them at most? Your loss. 2008. 2009. 2005. 2009. 2003. Next time how about you pick better examples? The only one that is really that applicable there is The Prisoner.

Talisman is the correct answer. El Dorado is one of the worst Maiden songs ever penned. At least they didn't play King...

Did they really play Running Free last? I seriously would have never guessed that in a million years. Get the point? RE-GUR-GI-TAT-EDdie

No, El Dorado is not that good but it is better live than on the album. If it wasn't the same tour then no, you wouldn't have guessed it. This is essentially leg 2 of a 3 part tour. NA last summer was leg 1 (which I'll admit is weird considering how far apart leg 1 and 2 are), this is leg 2, and Europe will be leg 3 this summer. Do you know the last time they closed with Running Free before this tour? 1992, close to 20 years ago.

Although wiki is an unreliable source it would be cool if they kept that song. I didn't even see blood brothers on the set. Now starblind should replace that song instead of dance of death.

Can't blame you for defending them but is it what it is. I stick 100% behind my hat theory. I can list 50 Maiden songs I'd rather hear than 90% songs in that setlist. Including most the songs off TFF they didn't play except King.

Now that I have digested this for a little bit, this set list is near criminal, and not in a good way.

With all the TFF themed space stuff going on, to not have one Somewhere In Time or hell even a Virtual XI song in the set is absurd. There is zero need to have FOTD, TNOTB, Trooper, DOD, Wicker, Blood Brothers, 2 Minutes in that set. None. And to top it off, not one AMOLAD song? To ask for a No Prayer For The Dying song anywhere is just outrageous I guess, I doubt we'll ever see one apart from BYD...TTS for a couple U.S. shows some years ago.

Are they purposely trying to give me an ulcer?

Killers - 0
SIT - 0
NPFTD - 0
X Factor - 0
Virtual XI - 0
AMOLAD - 0

I really, REALLY hate bitching about shit like this, after all, it's only a concert, and some perspective about what's important must be taken, I understand this. But let's be honest, there would be nothing to talk about otherwise.

IrritatedTrout
02-11-2011, 03:34 PM
It's a bit of a stretch to be upset about lacking songs from NPFTD, VXI, and X Factor simply because those are not the songs 90% of the people in the building will want to hear. I mean, personally, I'd be ecstatic but that's how it goes.

my only complaint is when the wild wind blows but its a good set imo for what they are doing. i mean yea it would be nice to see a rare one thrown in there like stranger in a strange land or something but what can you do? i would definitely go see this show, especially to hear TETMD and Talisman live.

daimonos
02-11-2011, 11:51 PM
Didn't read the eight pages of this thread, but I have three things to say:

1. I would be satisfied seeing this set.
2. I don't understand the hate for When the Wild Wind Blows. I like it. Sure, the lyrics might be kind of lame, but I think its a pretty epic song with a decent amount of feeling to it.
3. It's cool they're playing Coming Home live, and El Dorado works really well live. I'm not sure if The Talisman is the best choice though. I would rather see Starblind or Mother of Mercy. Also we could do without The Final Frontier, but I feel like it would work pretty well live.

DisposableJustice
02-11-2011, 11:56 PM
A)- I was secretly hoping the setlist would be epic enough to make me even more broke and spring a trip to Florida.....not quite, almost though
B)- Good set overall; As much as I love TETMD, it has been in recently (2009); how about another SSOASS song...how about the title track?:rocker:
C)- No SIT songs?:flame:
D)- Good selection from FF;however like most posters here I wish they did Starblind
E)- Wonder if they will change the setlist when they hit Europe; I say that because Wickerman and DOD were done last year...

I said from the outset that I wanted an AMOLAD-style tour because I'd MUCH rather see the other 5 Final Frontier songs live once than 5 other hits that I've seen at least once or twice (some 4+ times) at this point. TFF is hardly a perfect album where every song truly DESERVES to be played live, but the problem is when left to pick for themselves, Maiden almost always misses at least one agreeably amazing song from the album. And then having never been played on the album tour, it means it will never be played period.

If Maiden would finally stop being afraid to play songs on later tours that they hadn't played for the album tour, I would probably be totally fine with this. My only problem is WTWWB, not because it's bad since it definitely isn't, but I think it's kind of fucked up that they chose that particular song over a few others when they're only playing 5 songs off TFF to begin with. :(

It's a testament to how good Maiden is that people bitch about shit like this.

I think that setlist is amazing and I'm bummed they're not coming back on this tour cycle. Still holding out hope that they'll be back at the end of the year on a classics tour.

Why Maiden Rules:
1. Amazing Songwriting.
2. These guys have more energy live than most guys half their age. Maiden don't understand the concept of just standing there. Take away Eddie and the special effects (And to be honset, unlike the common belief, there's not a lot.) and you would still have a kickass show.

Talisman is the correct answer. El Dorado is one of the worst Maiden songs ever penned. At least they didn't play King...

Did they really play Running Free last? I seriously would have never guessed that in a million years. Get the point? RE-GUR-GI-TAT-EDdie

Still closing with Running Free is a good thing. I don't ever want to hear Sanctuary live ever again. I can't even listen to that song on the album anymore I'm so sick of it.

This site is hilarious when it somes to Maiden. I mean, REALLY f'n hilarious!

I personally enjoy debating bands and setlists but some people are just total sheep when it comes to Maiden. They can literally do NO wrong.

If you love this setlist, good for you. If you love El Dorado and would rather hear it than The Alchemist, Starblind, Isle of Avalon & Mother of Mercy then you are a troo maiden fan.

If you think wasting 8 minutes on Blood Brothers is better than hearing Paschendale or god forbid busting out some classics like The Prisoner or Children of the Damned, good for you.

I can't think of ANY other band that does this to their fans. How can a band with so many great albums and so many great songs ignore 95% of their catalog?

This setlist all things considered is a 4 out of 10. Missing the best songs off TFF and NOTHING older that hasn't been played in the last 5 years.

Still love Maiden and have been a fan longer than anyone I've ever met but I have ZERO interest in seeing this show. Glad I saw the setlist...

Yeah because the band just loves to play RTTH. Did you ever hear how enthusiastic they do it live:tp: They couldn't be more uniterested when doing it. I'd rather hear them do a song where they at least have some life in it.

As far as Aces High goes, you shouldn't get upset that a song that's only been played on a total of three tours isn't in the set. I figured everyone knew AH had no shot of being played on this leg.

Im Sorry.... But as far as i am conserned, i have never seen Maiden live, so if i were to go and see them i would want to see them play my two favorite songs that they have ever produced. AH and RTTH are only two of their biggest, i am shocked that they wouldn't play them. That is like Metallica not playing Seek and Destroy and Enter Sandman. Since those songs have been around, has that ever been done. I Think not. :tp:

You know, one thing to keep in mind. Maiden did used to bring out deep tracks for the first couple of reunion tours.

On Brave New World it was Sign of the Cross.

On Dance of Death it was Can I Play With Madness (which at that point hadn't been played live since 1992) and Lord of the Flies.

On AMOLAD and this tour, we got nothing.

Since RTTH is one of your two favorite Maiden songs i'm guessing you've been listening to them for all of five minutes. Listen to the rest they have to offer then you can talk. Yes, RTTH is their biggest "hit" but that doesn't change the fact that it's an average song, the band doesn't like playing it and Maiden has a lot better to choose from.

Aces High was released as a single but as far as it being one of their biggest songs, I don't recall ever hearing it on the radio. Can anyone remember back then (Powermaiden???) and say for sure if it was a hit or not because I never thought or got the impression it was. The popularity of 2MTM and the amazing stage show they put on for that tour was what I always thought made Powerslave sell so good.

If you're "shocked" that they don't play these two all the time then I suggest you educate yourself on Maiden's history and learn how they operate live and then none of this will be a surprise at all.

As far as the Metallica thing goes, you can't compare them not doing Sandman with Maiden not playing RTTH because Sandman is in a different league. It's the biggest worldwide hit a metal band has ever produced and can't be compared to anything else and because of that Metallica has to play it. Maiden doesn't "have to" play RTTH. Metallica i'm sure has played shows without S&D before. It doesn't happen too often but i'm sure it has. I for one would be happy to see them replace that with something else off KEA since most of the album is better than S&D.

In That order. So as far as "5 minutes" is concerned, you'd better start multiplying by a freakin' lot.

On Brave New World it was Sign of the Cross.

Doesn't really count, they had done it on the X Factor and Virtual XI album tours. It's not like they resurrected it from 10-15 years of being unplayed. Maiden have never done that outside of the two themed hits tours.

As Jhdeity has been arguing: Yes, Maiden are honestly pretty damn terrible at assembling setlists, mostly because they've become incredibly lazy in their own age. But that being said, you have to take what you can get when/where you can get it. All this set would have to completely win my approval is dump WTWWB in favor Starblind + The Alchemist (or Mother of Mercy), and remove one other song (I don't really even care which one) in favor of something from the "golden years" that isn't overplayed. Do that, and it's a pretty damn solid set.

I understand your responses to ratcat and I get why most people would find it weird that someone's favorite Maiden song is run to the hills. I myself could not give a fuck what anyone's favorite song from a band is. If someone told be that their favorite maiden song was total eclipse or Bring your daughter to the Slaughter I wouldn't care, if somone told me their favorite Metallica song could be Enter Sandman or Frantic I wouldn't care, I would say cool that is different from the norm and I respect that. Ever think that maybe ratcat has studied Iron Maiden like you. Maybe ratcat played all the 80's Maiden albums in one day and decided that run to the hills was his/hers favorite song.
I don't know about you or anyone else on this board, but right now I got more important shit to worry about than someone's opinion on a band.

Not surprised. It was a great show on the pre-release tour, I'd gladly see this set again, but Maiden seem to always do average setlists, when a band of their calibre should be doing something exceptional every night. The only things in this set that annoy me are Running Free killing HBTN's epic atmosphere and When The Wild Wind Blows (which I suspect is on the set because it was the song that Steve solo wrote. They really should have played two of the shorter songs and generally need to move away from the epically long songs but that's irrelevant)

Also, WTF is with their tour plans? If they're not doing anymore dates in NA (disregarding the few in Florida or wherever) their NA TFF tour has to be the most half-assed album tour ever.

They're playing songs like Trooper, 11:58, FOTD, The evil that men do etc. because they're going to play places they've never been to before like Singapore, Indonesia, Korea etc. and they know those songs are bonda fide crowd favorites.

Doesn't Adrian plays the opening riff to Wickerman:confused:

Also, Jan actually plays stuff? He just looks like he's strumming around on the guitar all night and contributing much. Except for the intro to DOD I really saw nothing from him last summer. Seriously what does he do?

I think they should've kept Wickerman as the opener. TFF just doesn't have that pop that a concert opener needs as far as i'm conserned. Of course when it comes to concert openers not too many songs are in the same league as The Wickerman.

Also, Jan actually plays stuff? He just looks like he's strumming around on the guitar all night and contributing much. Except for the intro to DOD I really saw nothing from him last summer. Seriously what does he do?

I think they should've kept Wickerman as the opener. TFF just doesn't have that pop that a concert opener needs as far as i'm conserned. Of course when it comes to concert openers not too many songs are in the same league as The Wickerman.

Yeah, he does. But I think Jan plays virtually the same thing a couple measures after the intro riff. I dunno what happened but if you watch the Wickerman video they seem really confused and Bruce changes the first line of lyrics to make fun of Jan's mistake.

I guess I'm the only one who loves this set. Of course I would drop Running Free for something much better, but hey, as long as there NO MOTHER OF MERCY I'm fine. That song is so one dimensional. It's so boring.
