    They could modify the drum riser and put the Kodo drum where the gong usually goes....

    It also gives a much fatter snare sound, especially when doing rim shots, because the surface area of the stick that's hitting the head is much larger.

    This is awesome. I love the way Nicko approaches the drum part in a live setting.

    Great performance, but the drum mix is so weird. The overhead and tom mics are way too low.

    Nicko's drum kits over the years

    Yep - they're similar in design to the frozen Eddie versions of the backdrops used on that tour for CIPWM and 2 Minutes

    Bruce sounding great on Icarus tonight: Shame the crowd is so lame.

    I don't think we should assume a google-translated article summarizing the thoughts of some journalist with a supposed second-hand inside scoop on the band is in any way accurate.

    Why would they skip Churchill's speech if they did this? It's the perfect cover for getting the plane ready and changing the stage set before the song starts.

    I'm not saying he sounds shit - I agree he's miles better than he was in '85. I just think he's more inconsistent now, thanks in most part to the fact that they're ENDING THE SHOW with it for some ungodly reason :lol:

    I've also really noticed how little he's moving around in the show, even now they're a few dates in and one would think he's gotten more comfy with the set- aside from some shenanigans with Eddie in a couple tunes, he's basically just staring at Nicko when he's not singing on most tunes. Really odd.

    Bruce sounds great in parts of Aces (the scream is back, as is a "scream for me" at the end!), but is really struggling in others places... just very inconsistent.

    Reminds me of all the shit people give Nicko when he says invariably their newest album is the best they've every done. What do you want him to do, come out and say "Nah, Powerslave was better. Don't bother buying this new one."

    Those weren't backing tracks for TBOS, for the same reason you cited about playing to a click. They were Michael Kenny playing sampled mixes of Bruce's backing vocals from the original recording.

    It waffles between 260ish and 270, so yeah about 265-266 on average.

    Yeah this is insane. Around the solos it gets up to 290bpm, then drops back down to the 275-280 range, but by the last chorus is back up around 285. Just way too fucking fast, it chokes the life out of the song.

    I don't know if it's just an issue of the drum arrangements - I think a lot of it is accommodating Bruce, so he can actually get the words out.

    They have been much more conservative with tempos since 2012, when Nicko started using a metronome to get a tempo before counting off the song. However, this year Aces High is the slowest it's ever been. Here's my quick analysis. I chose a few different versions from over the years, and tapped...
