I heard that there was some bad sound problems at certain parts of the crowd, where abouts were you standing?

That seems to be the norm with whoever Maiden's new sound guy is.

Nicko once said that if they ever dropped Hallowed Be Thy Name, he'd quit the band. I never thought he'd have to eat said words.

Me too. Would have been a great addition to the setlist :horns:

I didnt experience any sound problems where I was, which was left of stage and about half way back amongst the 90,000 crowd! ;) I had the large speakers a good distance in front of me which were great. So no complaints from me!!! :D

Agreed. I can't believe they dropped it for this tour.

Nicko once said that if they ever dropped Hallowed Be Thy Name, he'd quit the band. I never thought he'd have to eat said words.

That's correct! Nicko did once say that! I guess 'Arry had a quick word in his shell-like?!?! :eek:

I'm with Nicko though ... wouldve been nice to have had Hallowed included, but never mind ... the set was a good one anyway!!! ;)

Their new sound guy is better than Doug was from my experiences, but that's just my take. Other guys on here would know more than me though. They've seen them many more times than I have. It's normal to have inconsistent sound in large outdoor venues like this though.

No way he is better, on his best nights nobody notice him and the sound is okay, but on some nights, especially the first 2-3 weeks of last year's shows there was a lot of complains about the sound. I don't know why Doug Hall is not there anymore but you can't replace a guy that is there from the early days and expect to be as good.

Back on the topic of the Donington show, some friends of mine went, and although they said it was a fantastic atmosphere there was absolutely nothing special except the spitfire flyover at the begining. it would have been cool if they did one or two extra songs, but as far as setlists goes, once they are set up on a setlist they don't deviate from it whatsoever. It's been like that since the last 10 years or so. But in the past (before those last 10 years) they have played surprise songs at big shows like that.

The spitfire flying over was awesome but why not start with Churchill's Speech\Aces High in that case. That would have been the appropriate song to go with that and a surprise. You just play Moonchild first song of the encores...

Anyway, That's Maiden and they are what they are

can't wait for the Kansas city show :)


Cheers !

^ You're the main guy I was thinking about when I made that comment. I guess I had bad luck a couple of times with Doug, but there's so many factors involved it's hard to say what the problem was for sure. Like I said you would know better than I would, you've seen them so many times.
