Personally I think this is a rockin setlist and cant wait to see it in 3.5 weeks!!! The Prisoner and the title track to 7th Son alone are worth admission.

They use as the backdrop for The Number of the beast, instead of the album's cover art. They did it on the last tour too.

Didn't you hear they were playing 3 cuts from The Final Frontier for those here in America that didn't have a chance to see it in 2011? Better sell your tickets.

What the fuck guys? FIVE FUCKING SONGS from Seventh Son of a Seventh Son! It's the best album the band ever put out. Plus they're doing THE PRISONER! Here's my take: INCREDIBLE SETLIST ON PAPER. I'm seeing this tour in August. Cannot fucking wait.
I agree 100% with this post.. Seventh Son is the best album and this setlist is awesome

Best post in any of the Iron Maidn threads for this tour so far

Seriously, how bitter and jaded of a fan do you have to be to say this set looks bad on paper? How the hell can anyone think that? This set is awesome. I'll be seeing then twice this month and will love hearing this set both times.

Hottest concert I have ever been to in my life. 97 degress at the nearby bank thermometer @ 7PM. Whatever your opinions of the set list are, It goes over good, and has a good flow to it.

I have seen Maiden every tour since Killers, and every set list has something I wished were different, but the guy next to me may think the exact opposite. Any band with a big catalog is going to have the same problem, whether you are Kiss, or Priest, or countless others. Be thankful that at least they change things up from tour to tour. I will take a throwback tour any day over bands playing entire albums. For gods sake look at the Scorpions horrible setlist. Same show since 1984. I could list ten Maiden songs I would rather hear, but the set still rocks, and maybe next tour they dust off something different.

Honestly, I'm not a massive fan of it on paper. The problem for me is more about what's not there than what is there. The fact that they chose to play 2 Minutes, Fear of the Dark, Running Free, and Number of the Beast again instead of playing great deep cuts such as Killers, Still Life, Infinite Dreams, and Die With Your Boots On is a bummer. Yes, there are 5 7th Son tracks, but we heard 4 of them in 08/09. So yeah, this could have (realistically!) been a more impressive setlist had they stuck closer to the content of the video they claim to be representing.

That being said I absolutely loved the shows. It sucks not hearing something like Infinite Dreams but The Prisoner and 7th Son were amazing. Afraid to Shoot Strangers was a nice surprise too. And for all the bitching, 2 Minutes is a great song, Fear of the Dark is a great song, they're great fun live. It's just that when I've seen them so much I want something rarer in their place. But that doesn't cross my mind when I'm screaming the words at the show. The setlist complaints are largely unimportant for me when I'm actually there.

What did you think of Madness in the second slot now that you've seen it, Jeff?
