I think they have busted out some "deep cuts" from the older material, specifically on the SBIT and early days tours. Just only to a certain degree. Nothing totally crazy like Alexander or Still Life.
However, it seems to me that if Maiden don't play a song on the tour for the album it's on, it will never ever ever see the light of day.
Too bad they didn't do an AMOLAD style tour for every album so that we wouldn't have this problem.
