    The Future Past tour 2023

    I thought the flow was fine at both 2022 shows. Audience's reception kept building through the Senjutsu trio then they were fully into it with Revelations.

    Confusion's great. Spit is phenomenal. The rest are forgettable. The album'd challenge their highs of the 80s if they cut the forgettable ones out. It'd still be about a 50-minute album.

    I get the impression it'll be a concept album the same way Death Magnetic was where everything was about, well, death. There's no narrative connections like on Seventh Son, but everything ties to a common theme at least.

    I do think it'd be a nightmare if they had both the two-date deal and individual dates go on at the same time. I feel both types of consumer -- the one interested in the whole weekend and one interested in an individual show -- would get screwed over if the sale windows were simultaneous. They...

    They don't do back-to-backs anymore and haven't for quite some time. I think this style of schedule for them plus with the shorter set lengths is a way to prolong their career on the road. By the end of next year, James, Kirk and Lars will all be 60. Lars has said before that they're all fully...

    They had this floor ticket package for their North American arena run four years ago where buying it got you in at every single date of the arena run. Could be the same thing? Edit: That ticket went for $598 USD

    And I was literally thinking to myself yesterday, "I imagine all the interviews next year will be 'Oh yeah, we're finally finishing up writing again.'"

    I certainly don't think the tour's going to have that short of an itinerary. The band's stated before they've cut themselves down to 50 dates a year, so there's definitely plenty of room to sandwich other mid-week dates in there.

    Prediction: Does Maiden do one more album? And what's the theme if so?

    While I'd love for multiple albums going forth (even if the band continued as a recording entity and retired from the road), I think we'll get one last one in 2025/early-2026. End of the world theme to it (call it 'Midnight', maybe?), tie it in to a hybrid farewell/album tour.

    The Future Past tour 2023

    I think you need to kick off the encore with a bang right out of the gate or with a good intro tape to ramp up the anticipation. Number of the Beast, The Trooper, The Evil That Men Do and Aces High were quite good at that. EDIT: Then again, I've been predicting Alexander the Great to kick off...

    I'd say Brave New World is due for a return - even if not on this tour. I wouldn't have it open the encore though.

    I imagine HCW won't be as boring as having to sit through Tears of a Clown.
