    Iron Maiden. I'm not even convinced it has the crowd-pleasing appeal of Trooper and FOTD.

    It has Eddie the (big) 'Ed. What would happen with him?

    He could always pop up in something else. Perhaps Bruce's next 30-minute epic?

    A zeppelin shaped Eddie.

    Or better: Eddie pops up in a Zeppelin going over Nicko's head, crashing nose-down in flying over the audience.

    bornless1 Messiah Supreme. True Leader of Men.

    I especially do not like the debut album songs in the encore, let alone closing out. Anticlimactic in my ears.
    Silver lining; running free granted us a head start to the uber line and ahead of the traffic in the past ... if we never get any songs from the first album again, that is fine with me.
    On the other hand, RTTH & TNOTB / trooper are almost the Tom Sawyer and 2112-temples of Syrinx of the set. Without them I kinda leave thinking there is unfinished business. 6 weeks and counting to So California and Las Vegas!! :clap:

    Bruce (era) bias. :nonono:

    bornless1 Messiah Supreme. True Leader of Men.


    Maybe. :D Although my guess is he'd be on the mic. ...Song quality bias though is more accurate.

    matic22 H is shorter for God.

    Or inflatable 1000/1 copy of Nicko's nose.

    All the votes for Running Free pain me.

    Always thought 'Killers' would be a great replacement for 'Iron Maiden ' at that spot in the set. All the Eddie shenanigans set to Killers would be a wild ride. A B-12 shot of metal bedlam heading into the encore...

    I'd rather have Run to the Hills or The Number of the Beast on every setlist than Fear of the Dark or The Trooper...

    MrKnickerbocker clap hands

    I wouldn't, Fear of the Dark is always epic regardless of being overplayed and the energy of The Trooper will never grow old.

  14. Can I play With Madness. Always glad if they skip this song.

    The other two choices I do like to hear/see but if they would pick other songs I would not start crying.

    The Evil that Men Do

    2 Minutes to Midnight

    I could argue that Run to the Hills is the perfect sing-along song with an uplifting chorus (to me the perfect show closer, as exemplified on the GMETID and DOD tours) and The Number of the Beast is an all time menacing classic. :D

    I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

    matic22 H is shorter for God.

    The voting will be open until Thursday. I'll then count the votes and announce the results.

    Next time, a poll can be added.

    I'm gonna be very blunt, take it or leave it:

    Run To The Hills
    Number Of The Beast
    Hallowed Be Thy Name
    The Trooper
    Aces High
     
  19. matic22

    matic22 H is shorter for God.

    So in the 3rd place we have a 3-way tie between:
    Fear Of The Dark, Wrathchild and Iron Maiden

    In the 2nd place we have:
    The Number Of The Beast

    And the most overplayed song during the reunion era according to Maidenfans.com (in 2017) is:
    Run To The Hills


    Thanks for voting. There will be another similar thread with a poll added. See you there.
