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
I think the point your missing is even when they play old songs they're the same fucking songs over and over again, tour after tour.

Also this last tour having nothing off Piece of Mind and Nothing off Powerslave is terrible. 3 Dianno songs and 2 Number of the Beast songs that have been played every tour since 1984 isn't exactly pleasing to me.

I'm all for mixing it up but that wasn't mixing it up to me. That tour was an attempt to sell back catalog cd's and I seriously doubt it worked since they didn't even play the best songs off those cd's in most cases.

I also agree that they don't play a lot of different old songs, which is why I especially liked all the BNW/DoD songs!

Well yeah, I don't think anyone can argue that point. Which is why I was so happy to hear 8 new songs that I've never heard before (the BNW, DOD stuff and El Dorado) then the same 80's songs I've already heard. I'd love to see some of the more obscure 80s material and I'm not sure that there's anything we can do to get them to play it but here's a thought. Maybe people should stop sucking RTTH and TNOTB's dicks and bitching every time they are not played and maybe Maiden would feel less inclined to play them. That'll never happen though.

Well, hopefully after the huge success their tour here was, they'll tour just as extensively for the next classics tour, which should be the best one of them all if it's the SIT/Seventh Son one.
