Your Ideal Setlist (using only one song per album)

    There's a lot of "this would be my dream setlist" threads around, I'm sure, but what if you HAD to pick ONLY ONE song from each album?

    Let's say Maiden is doing a retrospective tour. They are going to play 16 songs, 1 song from each album.

    - They MUST play ONE song from each album, no skipping albums. Since we haven't heard Book of Souls yet, feel free to leave that off and update later.
    - This doesn't have to be a "play all these deep cuts that you've never played live before" list. Feel free to include some standard classics if those are the ones you really want to hear.
    - Think of both your favorite and how these songs would work in a live setting.
    - Set length doesn't matter. If all you want are epics, then by all means, make an epic setlist!

    My setlist would be:

    01. Phantom of the Opera
    02. Murders in the Rue Morgue
    03. Hallowed Be Thy Name
    04. Revelations
    05. Powerslave
    06. Stranger in a Strange Land
    07. Infinite Dreams
    08. Mother Russia
    09. Fear of the Dark
    10. Sign of the Cross
    11. Futureal
    12. The Thin Line Between Love and Hate
    13. Rainmaker
    14. These Colours Don't Run
    15. When the Wild Wind Blows
    16. lalalalala something from BOS
     
  2. SixesAlltheway

    SixesAlltheway Yacht Rock

    Can we reorder them around as we please or do they have to go chronologically as in your set list?

    4. Still Life
    5. Dance of Death

    A chronological order setlist... except the first three album at the end, in reverse order for the encore.

    04. Where Eagles Dare
    05. 2 Minutes To Midnight
    06. Stranger in a Strange Land
    07. Infinite Dreams
    08. Holy Smoke
    09. Be Quick or Be Dead
    10. Sign of the Cross
    11. The Clansman
    12. The Wicker Man
    13. Paschendale
    14. Brighter Than a Thousand Suns
    15. Coming Home
    16. Empire of the Clouds
    --------------------
    03. Hallowed Be Thy Name
    02. Drifter
    01. Sanctuary

    Edit: intended to be somewhat realistic, aside from the fact that we already know Bruce nixed Infinite Dreams previously, and they'll never skip Iron Maiden at the end of the regular set. Every song here has been played live (remember, Maiden doesn't bring back song that didn't get played on the original tour, ever). Many were singles, so the set won't be too long and should get a generally good reaction.

    Honestly, if they ever did a tour like this, I think your setlist might be a pretty good prediction!

    Yep. They'll never touch Blaze era again unfortunately. Didn't mention those though because it's under the premise of them playing a song from every album and those would be most likely I think. Or at least one or the other.

    Unless they went the Judas Priest route when they said they'd play something from every album and then still completely ignored the Ripper albums. Something I hope Maiden would never do if they were to do a tour like this.
