    matic22 H is shorter for God.

    So this is a similar thread to the one I created before, although this one is about underplayed songs during recent years. The songs eligible for this thread must have been played at least once during the reunion-era. So no Flight Of Icarus I'm afraid. There is no TBOS songs. TFF 2010 and 2011 count as different tours, since the setlist changed massively. Every song in this poll has been performed on two tours at most. The poll will be open untill 2nd of June. So what would you like to hear again?

    P.S. you can pick 6 songs.

    Again, no TBOS tour disscusion without spoilers.

    Also I fucked up and put two Powerslaves into the poll and can't remove the second one. Please vote for the first one if that is your choice. Thanks.

    (If mods can help to remove the other one, that would be greatly appreciated).

    Please vote, because more votes we have, the more accurete results will be at the end.

    I picked a couple which I doubt there is any chance of me seeing like Rime and Paschendale. But really my number one tune I think they should bring back is Killers. Its lively and not overly long so they have no excuse!

    I picked:

    Stranger In A Strange Land
    Ghost Of The Navigator
    22 Accacia Avenue
    Brighter Than A Thousand Suns

    I think the most chance of a return out of all of those songs has Ghost Of The Navigator.

    I hope there is any chance for any of the others, but I doubt it.

    matic22 H is shorter for God.

    With quite a few votes in, currently in the 1st place:
    Paschendale and Sign Of The Cross.

    Keep the votes coming and explain what you voted for and why if you will.
  6. bornless1

    bornless1 Messiah Supreme. True Leader of Men.

    Killers-22 ave.
    Rainmaker- mariner

    Where eagles dare
    Murders in the rue morgue

    I've stated before how Killers should be in every set list. In my opinion, Killers and Still Life are the most "Maiden-est " Maiden songs. These should be staples. And please let there be some Dance of Death representation again....the title song DOD, should be in every set too :yes::yes:
  7. Forostar

    Forostar Conjure the Death Star again

    The three I have never seen live:
    The Fallen Angel, OOTSilent Planet, SIASL.
    The awesome ones:
    Rime (fav song), Prowler (even if Nicko fucks up, still great to witness) and Lord of Light (really special vibe)
  8. bornless1

    bornless1 Messiah Supreme. True Leader of Men.

    Not including or referring to the present BOS tour, just going on past tour history: The last two songs before the break/encore have been dominated by fear of the dark and IM the song to death!
    How great would a combo of Still Life and Killers be in those particular spots!!?! I think this change would be a major, welcomed upgrade for the remaining tours. Mix it up a little , and Crank it up big time...

    I guess it was expected, but all my votes went to the AMOLAD tracks. Not only would I absolutely love to see them live (some again, some for the first time), but the album is also the most criminally underrepresented from the whole reunion era, IMHO.

    Cool thread. I tried to stay reasonably realistic with my choices, so I didn't pick any huge centrepiece epics, which usually don't return beyond respective album tours.

    Stranger in a Strange Land - A quite unique song in the Maiden catalogue. It would bring a lot of freshness to the set. And that solo would be just something else... Especially given how cool Adrian's experiments are nowadays.
    Prowler - Such a shame they ignore this song... It's perfect for encores. It would make a solid closing track.
    Lord of the Flies - Underappreciated gem. Could easily fit any setlist. Sounded great on DoD tour.
    Breeg - Same reasons as Stranger. It's unique and would be something fresh.

    I picked just four, but these are the songs I have strong feelings about in that matter. Man, I would lose my mind if all these were played during one show.
  11. bornless1

    bornless1 Messiah Supreme. True Leader of Men.

    I feel you. Man I wish I could go back in time to catch more shows on the historic AMOLAD tour. I loved it so much at the time, but didn't really realize the epic ness at the time. What a fantastic idea to play it all.
    Amidst many disgruntled "play classic types" we were blown away by this unbelievable night of Maiden metal magnificence!! Damn I just wish I had a chance to book more shows than just the one that tour!!

    I'm disappointed The Clansman isn't an option, as that would be at the top of my list of songs that I'd like to see return to the setlist.

    For what it's worth, I ended up voting for:
    Remember Tomorrow
    22 Accacia Avenue
    The Legacy
  15. matic22

    matic22 H is shorter for God.

    Sadly The Clansman doesn't qualify, because it was played on 3 tours.

    Also I probably owe you some explanation why only songs that have been played in the last 18 years are included. That's because the list would be just too long and some songs like FOI have been the cause of arguments between members of the band in the past.

    Sounds like a reasonable line you've drawn.
  17. TAY666

    TAY666 Invader

    That makes sense.
    I would have loved to have voted for Still Life and Flight if Icarus.

    Instead I voted
    Dream of Mirrors (my favorite tune from the reunion era)
    Journeyman (which I never got to see due to the idiot that threw a beer on the soundboard)
  18. Wogmidget

    Wogmidget I rather like the restless nights

    Ok, I went for:

    SIASL (*cough*Maiden England tour*cough*)
    Fallen Angel
    Ancient Mariner
    Prowler (a more interesting closer than Running Free/Sanctuary IMO)
    Passchendale and ATSS (both of which would have worked well on the AMOLAD tour)

    Can I ask why Seventh Son isn't on the list?
  19. GhostofCain

    GhostofCain Ancient Mariner

    Stranger in a Strange Land
    Bring your Daughter... To the Slaughter
    Remember Tomorrow
    Where Eagles Dare
    The Longest Day
