rest assured that I was going to post this with the best intentions but the idiot that gave us the feed is obviously drunk or high and doesn't know what he's doing. If a mod wants to delete all of this be my guest. I'll keep it there just for the pictures but I'm leaving the pc now.

If someone gets the real set feel free to start another thread about it

Great show but Bruce's vocals and some of the guitars cut out at times (if anyone thinks differently, please let me know then I will KNOW my hearing is definitely going on me, ha ha)!!!

European crowds are so much fun, they dont head off to go to the bathroom or get a beer during Afraid to Shoot Strangers..

Next show is Lisbon for me.

That LA show will be killer.

What's wrong with the setlist?

I flew 4000 miles just to see Maiden in Bilbao, Lisbon and Barcelona (plus I saw them 9 times last summer) and seeing them in Las Vegas and LA in the fall.

I hate to say this but with all these "passings" of great musicians, you have to see bands when you can.

and no, even though they play the sames songs every night it's not the same show, every show is different

The LA show is honestly just going to be an excuse to hang out with friends. A ton of folks I know are coming down for the show, so really it's just gonna be a lawn party with metal playing in the background.

What's this shit with people being disappointed that it's the same set? It's the same tour as last year, so why wouldn't it be the same? It's not like they're playing the same places this year either. Most people going will be seeing this show for the first time, so why shouldn't they get the same near perfect setlist that North America got last summer?

If you've seen Maiden live then you shouldn't have to question why a lot of fans do that for them.

BANDS WORTH SEEING MORE THAN ONE TIME ON THE SAME TOUR:
Metallica, Bruce Springsteen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rolling Stones, Pearl Jam

reasons: they play different set lists, some of them play something special depending on the town they're in etc...

BANDS NOT WORTH SEEING MORE THAN ONE TIME ON THE SAME TOUR:
Iron Maiden and practically every other band

reason: they play the same set list

Just kidding...go see your favorite bands as much as you want. If you're a hardcore fan and never get tired of the same sets more power to you.

I like it better when bands change their setlists but I don't think that they SHOULD change their setlists...In the end they play to new people every night right? But don't they get bored playing the same 10-20 songs on a tour of 40+ dates? Any musicians here that can answer that?

I'm not a musician but my guess is that it's just like one of us going in to work and doing the same tasks everyday. Playing songs live is a bands job and just like we do the same thing at work everyday, they do the same thing. Plus, i'm sure a lot of musicians enjoy it when they can play the songs right every night. I think a lot of them see it as a challenge to get every note right each time and their satisfaction comes from that and that's why they may not get as bored with the same songs as we think they do.

This reminds me of what Neil Peart from Rush said about playing Tom Sawyer all the time. He said he enjoys playing it every show because it's a difficult song to get right and when he gets it right it makes him feel good.

Imma say super hardcore fan cuz theyre shows aint cheap.

Disagree with last part. Same set, same stage theatrics. Those are key reasons to attend another date. I mean unless one day ya get lawn and one day ya get pit tix. The show for the most part should be the same experience.

Maiden shows are more like going to church for me, the rush I get from it, the chills, it's so intense to my nervous system... love it. it's my religion

and btw, Metallica is not worth seeing at all anymore

Regardless of slight set differences, it's worth it to see Rush more than once on any tour because they're fucking Rush. Who else at their age (aside from Springsteen and McCartney) consistently deliver 3 hour shows?

05-27-2013, 07:08 PM
I mean, I'm pretty bummed it's the same setlist. I was hoping they'd switch up a song or two, but I'm still going to see them.

Maiden was the 1st band I saw multiple times that played virtually the same set over a year later. It was the Powerslave tour and although I was very dissapointed not to hear some different songs, both shows were amazing.

JRA
05-27-2013, 07:44 PM
You'd figure they'd have learned and have dropped Fear of The Dark and Afraid To Shoot Strangers.

and jhdeity, with a set that short I'm not surprised to hear you were disappointed.

Yeah as incredible as Rime of the Ancient Mariner was back then, seeing it once was enough. If they had just played Children of the Damned and a few other gems in it's place the 2nd time I would have been happy.

I can't lie and say that I'm not bummed that I'll never hear Infinite Dreams live now but I understand that it's the same tour and it's a setlist they've previously stated that they're very happy with so I'll deal with them not playing it. I suppose they have their reasons after they rehearsed it in 2012 not to do it.

To me, it's not that there's anything inherently wrong with the setlist but it's just the fact that one or two changes really could have made the difference between really good and great. Put ID and Die With Your Boots On or Killers in for 2 Minutes or Running Free and you're set.

However, at the end of the day I'm flying to Europe and taking in the (amazing) sights while seeing my favorite band, including my personal hero, play cuts from my life's soundtrack. It will be amazing.:light:

About the multiple gigs thing, for most bands I would agree that you really don't need to see more than like two shows on any given tour. However, if there is a band that is your absolute favorite, the music and the show takes on a whole new meaning. I had a great time at Baroness last night but do I really need to see more than one show? No. Same with AiC, Fleetwood Mac, and Testament. All shows I've seen this year (Rush is a different story, I did really want to see them again right after the show;)). Because I don't know their music well enough (even though I love them all) to really pick up on the tiny nuances that change from show to show. Also, while I might think they're cool guys, they personally don't mean a ton to me.

However, when you've been in love with a band since before you were in high school, for over a third of your life, the guys in the band really start to take on a new meaning for you. I've met Nicko and I've talked to Dave and Adrian over the phone briefly so my actual connection to them is almost non-existent. However, being up on the barrier and just exchanging a smile or getting a nod of approval or just seeing how they interact with eachother and enjoy themselves up there is an important part of the show that isn't just the music. And for me, that, along with the little changes in how they play every night, is what makes going to multiple gigs special despite being the "same" on paper.

"You don't understand" is such a bullshit defense but I think it works in this case. It doesn't have to be Maiden, it could be anyone, but if there is not a band that you're highly passionate about then yes, I could see how the prospect of multiple gigs on the same tour doesn't make sense. But if you really feel that strongly for one band, I think it becomes much, much more easy to understand why some people do what they do.

Although, some Maiden fans get a little over the top even in my opinion. Doing the entire European tour or doing like 20 gigs in the States when they're from Italy or Belgium. :lol:


Also, the lack of Infinite Dreams really needs this: :flame::finger2::bouville::grrr::axe::barf: :pissed: :nag::bawling::badidea::boohoo::lame::headoff:

I could care less what a band's setlist is, if I like the band, I will go see them. I purchased the "tourbook/postergramme" before the gig and on one page it had what the setlist was so I kind of knew beforehand it did not change from last year. It was pretty cool to see the Spanish fans singing along and being excited for Afraid to Shoot Strangers.

I am visiting five amazing cities in Europe (London, Bilbao, Lisbon, Barcelona and Amsterdam) and seeing Iron Maiden in three of those cities and seeing Rush in two of those cities just is the icing on the cake!!!

Speaking of cake, they have great desserts here in Bilbao!!!

Wow, seeing Rush and Maiden on the same trip would be awesome. Are the Rush shows in Europe GA floor by chance or do they still do the seats on the floor?

Any other thoughts on the Bilbao show? A review would be cool if you have time. Also, how is the program?

For the Rush show at the O2 they had seats on the floor but for Amsterdam it will be general admission on the floor (I had seats for London but I have GA floor for Amsterdam). Lisbon Maiden show is Wednesday then Saturday is Sonisphere in Barcelona (I am skipping Sonisphere in Madrid, thought I would spend time checking out Barcelona vs. spending time in Madrid) then Sunday is Rush in Amsterdam.

I will try to do a review later today. It is 6:15 am here in Bilbao and have not really slept yet.

Tour programme is nothing special, just a "postergramme" like they had in 2008 for Somewhere Back in Time. Maiden does not really do tour books anymore (I still have my old tour books at home somewhere from Somewhere in Time 1986/87 and World Slavery Tour 84/85)

I would imagine its just easier to not have to remember how to play a lot of their catalog. It keeps it so they can just perfect the songs on the list. I get that, but I would also like to see them rotate a few songs here and there.

Agreed. Napalm Death are one of my favorite bands but I saw them twice within three days once (in Toronto and Ottawa); same set, same banter, same show. I was a little disappointed. I was thinking of going to see them in a few other towns that were within an hour or two of me that week but I thought, "why see the same set and stage banter, I'll give them a few more years".

So seeing the same band live multiple times is awesome but seeing them multiple times on one tour is a bit much.

seeing bands multiple times on one tour is just part of the journey. Meeting new people, seeing new places etc is why my vacations are "tour related". I am not in Europe just to see Rush and Iron Maiden multiple times, I get to experience amazing cities and cultures at the same time. Same in North America when I go to multiple rock shows, I get to see friends and places I don't normally get to.

Each their own I guess. I have travelled within North America to see Accept, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Rush, Def Leppard, Manowar, Metallica, Ghost (to name a few) and have met some good friends and experienced some great cities and towns and a few "mis" adventures along the way.

I understand that last part. :lol: Have fun with the rest of your travels and gigs.

And yeah, last year I saw Maiden in Charlotte, Atlanta, Philly, and DC. I didn't do any exploring in DC because that's the closest major city to me so I've been there a lot, in Philly I ran out of time to do anything unfortunately because traffic from Northern Virginia all the way there was a an absolute bitch. However, I hung out for days in Charlotte and got acquainted with the city, went to museums, went to one of the huge racetracks for the first time, spent time with my girlfriend and her family and saw the show. In Atlanta I got to go to the show with my girlfriend and meet up with two buddies that I rarely see. The next day we went downtown and checked out the city, went to the world's largest aquarium which was really cool for me because I love fish, and ate at Brent Hind's favorite restaurant. :lol:

This year I'm seeing freaking Paris with my girlfriend and spending a week there. I'm going to Versailles and Disneyland as well as the things in the city. Then I'm going back to Frankfurt for a bit of German nostalgia ad going to visit the old town of Heidelberg on the day of the second show as it looks really cool and I didn't get around to visiting when I was studying over there.

So yeah, the reason I'm going to Europe next week instead of in August is because Maiden will be there next week. But the show is only one fraction of the experience.;)
