    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    Money Probably offered too much to turn down.

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    In my opinion the band are so desperate to dump the whole legacy of the beast tour and play new songs that’s why they have the whole Senjutsu stage set and Eddie.

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    Fuck me every post I’ve read from you in this thread is a moan about something. On that subject way too many people nit picking every little part of two shows and talking trash and being negative. Someone new to this forum reading this thread would think this is an anti-maiden bashing forum...

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    Makes perfect sense to me. I imagine they are playing these 3 songs now as the current tour dates, especially the upcoming US dates, are more the play classics crowd who would not want a full album tour so this is all their getting from Senjutsu. I may be wrong but that’s my take. Likely they...

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    This 100% It reminds of when the US only got eldorado and nothing else from the final frontier tour. It makes me think they have definite plans to tour the whole album but know the US and certain other territories would go ape shit if they did this so are giving some places now a little taste...

    Is it worth joining the fanclub?

    Fan club is an utter waste of time if you ask me. The cost might appear cheaper now but no physical mags and no t-shirt unless you pay for both is a big cost increase. Your basically paying for forum access and the forum is filled with “look what t-shirt I’m wearing today” or “look what I got...

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    Been reading this thread and watching some of the vids with great interest. One point I notice a lot of people have picked up on is the position of Aces High. Aces High is a tough song for Bruce to sing these days. I get why they moved it towards the end of the set, to try and not start things...

    Iron Maiden News, Links, and Interviews

    FOTD was the first new release Maiden album after I became a fan. I was 15 when the album came out, now I feel old lol.

    which Maiden song that hasn't been played live yet would you like a live version of?

    I’m curious about this too. I’m sure it’s been confirmed that they rehearsed infinite dreams and still life for the Maiden England tour 2 but they were dropped and replaced. I’d love to know why. The only reason for songs being chosen or dropped should be based around Bruce’s voice, ie what he...

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    Yeah I don’t get that Each to there own I guess but I think LIALW is a cracking song from start to finish. As I’ve said in previous posts there’s just something that has clicked with me about this album and I could say something good about every track. If I was pushed to say something...

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I don’t know about anyone else but as a 45 year old Maiden fan who’s been along for the ride since 1991 I think Senjutsu is amazing. I’m not someone who will blindly love anything Maiden does but something about this album has totally resonated with me. Not a bad song on the album and could...

    what do you expect of a new Bruce Dickinson solo album?

    For the most part Senjutsu sounds great to me. My only issue is with Bruce’s vocals. Some songs he sounds buried in the mix and I find myself turning up the volume to hear what he’s singing and then turning down again on the following song.

    what do you expect of a new Bruce Dickinson solo album?

    No no no for the love of god no! Skunkworks is awful, IMO of course

    Your First Maiden Gig

    My first Maiden gig was the Brixton academy in London, Friday the 10th of November 1995. I was 18 years old. Been a fan of the band at that time since late 1991 so around 4 years. I’d known about the band since the 80’s as they were a big band in the U.K. and a lot of their singles were top 10...
