In Charlotte Bruce seemed to think his mic was too low and asked us what we thought of it about three songs in, he then went and got someone to turn it up. In Atlanta I thought the sound was great. Some of the solos were a little quiet but that's to be expected when you're on the barrier on Steve's side.

Vince Neil should try ripping a few into the mic, would probably sound better than his shit vocals.

This is only the third show of the tour and Maiden has been known to change things up on the first few shows till they "work out the kinks" ... a perfect example is the beginning of the "Final Frontier" tour:

On the opening night they played "Brighter Than A Thousand Suns" and then replaced it with "Wrathchild" and “Paschendale” & “Dance Of Death” were rotated each night for the first ten shows until they decided to stick with "Dance Of Death."

Man, I'm still so grateful for the fact that I went to an early show AND got Paschendale on that tour.

I saw them after they stopped the rotation. DOD is a good song but Paschendale is

Same here. It's one of my top ten favorite Maiden songs of all time!

Paschendale isn't quite in my top 5, but if I went to a show and they subbed that song out for Wrathchild I'd be fucking pissed!

Let's face it, Maiden are lazy to an extend on the fact that they could have 2-3 spots on the setlist where they could switch songs around from night to night. If Metallica can do it, Maiden sure could.

The Paschendale\Dance Of Death switch that was done on the begining of the 2010 US tour was the most refreshing thing they've done in a while. I was so pissed too when they stopped alternating those 2 songs. That give fans that do multiple nights a surprise to expect every night.

Songs that would have pretty much the same lenght and they could have a generic backdrop that fits both songs. And even the backdrop issue is not really one, they could have backdrops for both songs on a specific spot if they really wanted.

So that current set could be something like this (I did it for 5 spots there which is pretty much pushing it for Maiden to do but come on, that's definatelly doable. And imagine the possibility of sets that that would make


1. Moonchild
2. Can I Play With Madness or Wrathchild
3. The Prisoner
4. 2 Minutes To Midnight or Killers
5. Afraid To Shoot Strangers or Infinite Dreams
6. The Trooper
7. The Number Of The Beast
8. Phantom Of The Opera
9. Run To The Hills
10. Wasted Years or Still Life
11. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
12. The Clairvoyant
13. Fear Of The Dark
14. Iron Maiden
---
15. Aces High
16. The Evil That Men Do
17. Running Free or Hallowed Be Thy Name




you see I'm not always saying they never do wrong

Cheers !

Very cool. I was lucky enough to see them twice in four days in Biloxi then New Orleans back in '85. Was right down front on the barrier both nights. Two of the loudest shows I've been to.

For some reason Maiden NEVER plays anywhere near Jacksonville, which sucks. I know they play south Florida typically but road trips are a little tougher when you're older and married with kids. There's a great and fairly new amphitheater just south of here in St. Augustine. Hell, Judas Priest even played it a couple of years ago so it would certainly be fine for Maiden. Oh well. Guess I'll just have to live vicariously through this website.

I'm new to this site so don't know who the admins are. This sure seems like the type of post that would come from an admin. So if you are one then no biggie. If not though then this really is a douchebag reply.
