Actually, they need to break out Flash of the Blade and The Duellists. Pretty sure it was said that the reasons those songs (and a few other songs from that era) were never played live were because they couldn't pull off what they did in the studio in a live setting (i.e. with only 2 guitars), and that with 3 guitarists now they felt comfortable playing all of the material live (hence AMOLAD tour). So now I think they should break out some of those old fucking songs they never played before and now can.

What you said here does bring up an intresting question though. That is, why Maiden is so quick to bust out deep cuts with the new material this tour but so hesistant to do that with the old stuff? Because like you said, with 3 guitar players they should be able to pull off a wider range of material live. Maybe, it's just one of those mysteries I guess

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.

I think that the answer is that as great as they are as a band and as ballsy as some of their recent setlists have been, they're still kind of lazy. Arranging a song for three guitars that's never been done before, learning a song for the stage that they haven't played in 25 years, and coming up with an intro/backdrop/presentation for is just more effort than they're willing to put in. The new shit they're doing is still relatively fresh on their mind, has been played live before, and was written for a six-piece. Just sayin'.

Yeah, this.

Wow, these threads just keep going, haha.

This one needs more Mankvill "kid-in-Maiden-shirt" graphics though.
