Its a good way to see songs you usually wouldnt ever get to hear live, and I like the idea of playing albums live... just as long as they don't do it all the time.

nay on new albums played in their entirety. yay on classic albums being played in their entirety.

sitting through Dio's Magica was painful.

Getting to see Reign in Blood from start to finish was a treat.

This is how I feel. A better vote for me wouldn't have been "yeah" but more like "usually." And by the way, I loved the AMOLAD tour.

I can imagine. That album is very long and plodding, wouldn't make for an interesting live show I would think.

I'm generally okay with whole albums though. Mindcrime and Mindcrime II were pretty fun for me. But I think if bands did this year in and year out it would be rather tired after a while. But every once and a while going on tour centered around an album, new or old, yes, I think that's pretty cool.

Depends on the length of the setlist if you ask me. Like Brad said, if they play an album and then another 10-15 more songs, then it's fine with me. But When they play just an entire album or an album and like three songs, eh. I'd like to hear more stuff than not.

Bands playing full albums, yay; bands playing full new albums, sometimes nay.

When a band comes out and plays an unquestionable classic live in its entirety (Anthrax with Among the Living, Slayer with Reign in Blood, Metallica with Master of Puppets, Queensryche with Mindcrime, etc.), it's really fucking awesome, albeit a bit gimmicky.

When bands play their entire newest album, it's a gamble. AMOLAD in its entirety left room for, what, six other songs? That was a stupid move. Mindcrime II was played in full to complete the story from the Broadway aspect, so that's okay. And Porcupine Tree playing the full Fear of a Blank Planet album this year, well, fans (like me) are hailing it as their best, so they have every right to come out and play it all every night (especially since they encore with a full goddamn setlist, unlike Maiden).

So it's hit or miss really.


EDIT: Voted yes though. Most bands who do it do it right.
Just the kind of shit logic I'd expect from a Queensryche fanboy. Now Ryche are one of my favorite bands, but the whole Mindcrime thing is such a gimmick at this point.

I think the AMOLAD set list was probably the best thing to happen to Maiden's set list ever. One: it allowed for a bunch of new songs to get played live that would never have otherwise, Two: They eliminated stuff like NOTB, RTTH, and Wrathchild in favor of additional songs like 23:58 and The Evil That Men Do, and 3: It showed that they may not be so stuck in their ways that they can actually pick out creative set lists.

This I don't agree with at all.

This I totally agree with.

The AMOLAD tour was awesome beyond belief. Definitely one of my top 5 favorite shows of all time. I wish I could have seen it more that once.
