new albums>>>>>>>>>>oldies tours
Gotta go with the other two on this one, I think it is awesome that Maiden did that tour. It was fresh for the young kids, nostalgic for the oldies, and just a fantastic set, and NOW they are focusing on new stuff. Appeals to everyone really, I don't see what is there is to be complaining about

Things to complain about:

1) Having to sit through worn-out, overrated-to-begin-with standards like RTTH, TNOTB, FOTD, and CIPWM for the 80 millionth time.

2) Nowhere near enough deep cuts for a tour like that; the only real surprise was Moonchild (although it was great to hear Rime played live again).

3) Four years between albums is just stupid.

1) That means you are not a fan.
2) Can't agree. I'm sure there were many people in the ages 15-30 who had never seen Aces High, Rime, Powerslave, Phantom, Children, Revelations, Moonchild and Clairvoyant.
3) Its not. They usually come out with an album in 3 years max, if you look at their release history. In fact, the extra anticipation and wait might actually make it even better than what it would have been had it been released in 08 or this year. I prefer quality over quantity. They used to bring out an album once every year from 1980 to 1984. They don't do that now and they don't need to.

First of all, I don't know how you can think those songs are overrated. Just because we have heard them a million times, you know the first time you heard Run to the Hills, The Trooper, The Number of the Beast, etc, you were like....man, thats fucking metal! And besides, they transfer great live and it's fucking Maiden!

And there were definately great tracks on the set, Rime, Moonchild, Revelations, The Clairvoyant, Heaven Can Wait...need I say more?

And four years between albums due to mass touring, 1st for AMOLAD, then a tour like SBIT....I don't see how that is stupid.
