I love the new stuff.

Yeah I thought I remembered hearing that. I think someone was just having a bad day. We has this huge debate when the tour started and it became pretty comical actually. My only point was what if someone saved up their money and this was their 1st time seeing Maiden that this was not a very good representation of their talent and best songs. I thought throwing a few gems in like Children of the Damned or The Prisoner (that were not played on the SBIT tour) would satisfy everyone but apparently the younger people on here would rather hear Wildest Dreams and No More Lies. To each his own...

After seeing the entire tour setlists I couldn't imagine them playing the 2nd worst song off Final Frontier every single night but they did. I'm glad I skipped this tour personally. The SBIT tour and setlist was incredible.

This tour was my first time seeing Maiden, and I walked away after driving 10 hours kinda dissapointed. I loved the SBIT setlist, and wanted to hear more older stuff. I must say though, I do like the fact that Maiden switches it up every tour. Something that other bands should start doing.

Yes, but you're one of the cool 40 year-olds, not the lawn seat hotdog eating kind.

I've always felt this was the weakest argument of them all. Maiden did a total of 24 shows in North America on the SBIT tour and only 17 dates were in the US. They missed a lot of areas and it's none of the fans "fault" that they couldn't make it to a show that tour. If anyone is to balme it's Maiden and their tour management. They simply didn't give a lot of fans an opportunity to see them.

A lot of people, myself included, weren't able to travel at that time and attend the shows and that's somehow our fault? When any band tours they need to bring that show to as many cities as possible so the majority of their fans have an opportunity to see it. Maiden just didn't do that for the US at all on that tour.

The SBIT tour should've been more extensive in the US like this past summers tour was. They should've taken that show on the road everywhere in the US like Megadeth did with performing all of RIP. Thus, ensuring that everyone had a chance to see that amazing setlist. But they did what they did and there's nothing we can do to change that. At least they released Flight 666 so those who missed it could still get a taste of what it was like.

I think the number of dates we saw the past summer was due to the attendance of the SBIT tour in America. When they organized the dates for the SBIT tour the most recent numbers they had were from 06 and I know they played a lot of smaller venues then so I guess management was unsure of how many dates they could do in America and still sell well.

Here we go again.

Since Bruce re-joined the band, they've played far more "greatest hits" sets than other sets.

Ed Hunter Tour
All old songs except three Blaze songs.

Brave New World Tour
Album Tour for BNW (which kicks ass anyways)
Six BNW songs
Two Blaze songs
Six old songs

Give Me Ed Tour
All old songs except for two from BNW and a Blaze song

Dance Of Death Tour
Album Tour for DoD
Six DoD songs
One Blaze song
One BNW song
Seven old songs

Eddie Rips Up The World Tour
Ozzfest US Tour
18 SONGS FROM 1983 AND BEFORE

A Matter Of Life And Death Tour
AMOLAD album tour (pretty much the only tour you should give less than 10/10 to)
10 AMOLAD songs
Three old ones

A Matter Of The Beast Tour
AMOLAD/NOTB Tour
Five AMOLAD songs
Nine old songs

Somewhere Back In Time Tour
ALL CLASSICS
Not one post-80's song except for Fear Of The Dark

Final Frontier World Tour

Four from BNW
Three from DoD
Two from AMOLAD
One new
and still Six classics

The Final Frontier tour is pretty much the only time Maiden has revisited their newer albums without being on an album tour for them, so all the casual fans screaming for only old stuff can get fucked, for 11 years Maiden has played setlists with a majority of old shit.

edit: although yes, fuck Iron Maiden for barely touring the US

Biggest disappointment for me was that it wasn't called the Final Frontour.
