    LEGACY OF THE BEAST 2019

    Ticket sales discussions (with overtones of doom) are even more tiresome than Alexander the Great jokes. This is my humble opinion. But carry on!

    Beautiful! Flight of Icarus was the very first Iron Maiden song I ever heard. I was instantly hooked. So glad they brought this classic back for one more tour.

    I think they’re playing Alexander the Great on this tour. They put it in the “war” section of the show, replacing The Clansman. I hope it comes out on DVD!

    When making lists, some great songs get unfairly discriminated against because we've heard them so many times. For example, it's not The Trooper's fault that you've heard it live 10,000 times already. But that will influence your vote.

    Well, Steve did have some help writing Hallowed..

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST 2019

    At the Bristow show it seemed to me that the crowd popped the most for Two Minutes to Midnight, The Trooper, Fear of the Dark, Hallowed Be Thy Name, and Run To the Hills - the biggest classic "hits". We snobby forum fans may get sick of hearing these songs (and The Number of the Beast and Iron...

    The Bristow show was great, but Bruce sounded like he had a cold or something, and there was no running and jumping. On the other hand, Nicko sounded fantastic, very powerful. Could Nicko actually outlast Bruce? Who would have thought it?

    Great show in Bristow, even with the WED screw up. The 2 hours just flew by. Maiden is the greatest of all time.

    I arrived at the Virginia show. Bought a $20 lawn seat ticket from a scalper. Drinking a $13.50 can of Trooper beer. Let’s do this. Looking forward most of all to hearing Where Eagles Dare and Flight of Icarus live. Piece of Mind was my introduction to Maiden. Cool to see parents bringing...

    As penance I have decided to donate money to Iron Maiden to see the concert in Virginia on July 24th.

    Yeah, because Maiden don't have nearly enough money already.. I don't think these guys are motivated primarily by greed. So I still expect a new album and new album tour next year.

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    Invaders is a really good song. It rocks and gets my blood pumping. When I listen to it, I picture the opening village slaughter scene from Conan the Barbarian.

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    Appetite for Destruction is overrated (but still very good), but Use Your Illusion I & II are absolutely brilliant. G&R really started to stretch themselves musically with those albums, and then they imploded. Oh, what might have been..

    The twin solos on The Trooper make the song much better. It was a brilliant idea.
