    Strangest setlist inclusions? (SPOILER FREE)

    I was only a kid during Somewhere on Tour in 1987 and it was my first ever concert...a story I still use to impress people at parties whenever the "what was your first concert" conversation comes up. Rime was my favourite song at the time and to hear it live was a dream. As it also was my...

    Legacy of the Beast Tour Second Leg Rumours & Discussions

    I saw Bruce talk in Sydney a couple of weeks ago. He told the crowd the band would love to tour Australia next year, which having seen them in Athens and Manchester this year I’d selfishly be happy if they didn’t visit us in order to enter the studios instead, but Bruce said something else that...

    Tailgunner with a few alterations to the Spitfire to convert it into a Fokka?

    Legacy of the Beast Tour Second Leg Rumours & Discussions

    Bruce’s October speaking tour in Australia and NZ and British Lion’s November mini tour of Canada will likely delay any studio time in the near future, however, I have a feeling that coming off such a brilliant tour the guys, each now relaxing in their own house/palace, will soon feel the urge...

    The Concert Thread

    Make sure you see Khemmis...I saw them at Psych Las Vegas last year. Their recent release, Desolation, is currently my album of the year. Also, Pallbearer is my favourite band after Maiden. Good blokes too, I’ve met them a few times. + Witchcraft, Gojira, Alestorm, Gloryhammer, The Sword...

    Incredibly sad. My Greek friends drove me along the coast of Athens just the day before the fires and there were thousands of people enjoying the sun and water. Anyway, Gk1 I hope you get to see Maiden next time they play Athens!

    Rockwave festival in Athens...I went alone. My mind was blown. I’ve needed time to share these memories from my mind. As the show has already been reviewed a few times in this thread I will just add some small additional thoughts. Firstly, I was about seventh row on Dave’s side but due to the...

    Gk1, sorry to hear of your loss. You showed your Dad plenty of love and that would have given him much comfort and happiness.

    Thanks Foro! I’ve been listening to the Stockholm bootleg most days and can not wait to see this setlist live.

    After four days in the Greek Islands and having this morning purchased a ticket to Bruce’s October speaking tour in Sydney I will be at the Athens show this evening...I’m living in the golden years!

    Odd..they didn’t tour Australia or New Zealand on No Prayer on the Road.

    At the Sweden Rock Festival a repeat of the Stockholm SOTC crisis* was avoided by Nico shouting a Different World-style “Ayee” to wake Dave up right before the beginning of the troublesome spot. * Term taken from Xennon’s post number #3063 @Xennon

    Your ultimate reunion album

    Thought I may as well also post an ultimate classics era album cover and back cover. Hallowed Be Thy Name may seem a bit mainstream and filled with plenty of overplayed songs but each was seminal in my Maiden listening history. Although when comparing the two albums I prefer Empire of the...

    Change some of the Maiden setlists

    Probably because I was thirteen at the time and was completely blown away by being at a Maiden concert. I saw the ship and the first image that came to mind was Alexander sailing around the Mediterranean on his way to war. I clearly remember saying, “Alexander the Great” to my brother. He said...

    The Concert Thread

    At The Iron Maidens’ Sydney show my mate was totally besotted with Davina Murrays’ looks. She is very attractive but I was more besotted with the way she mastered Dave’s solo from Alexander The Great.

    It’s one of the best non-soundboard recordings I’ve ever heard. Every instrument is clearly audible alongside Bruce’s vocals and there is no disturbing crowd interference. Quite incredible really. And the Sign Of The Cross error makes it a unique addition to the library.

    It's a great recording. Thanks Trav. Here is a non-torrent link I found on guitars101.com: http://www.guitars101.com/forums/f145/iron-maiden-2018-06-01-stockholm-616105.html
