    The Future Past tour 2023

    I don't think they'd do it for this tour either, but Rime of the Ancient Mariner is definitely a song that I could see being one of the teased "selling points" and "centerpieces" for the next tour, whatever that'll be. I mean, it's certainly a song that could still have one more run ahead of it...

    Bruce Dickinson

    As a slightly more serious note, I think Bruce has expressed that he would've liked to go all-out with the Seventh Son thing back then, with a comic book or something alongside the album, so... As the upcoming record will apparently be, to some extent, somewhat conceptual, I wonder...

    Nightwish

    Speaking of Tuomas & some of his extremely cheesy #deadboy lyrics... I have to admit that I have a huge soft spot for his Music Inspired by the Life and Times of Scrooge album. I very much share his love for Don Rosa's (+Barks!) duck stories and that album has some nice things in it, even if...

    The Future Past tour 2023

    To be honest, I'd rather not see Alexander that late in the set. It would work, yes, but I have a gut feeling that it would sound a lot more energetic and intense earlier on... Just like Aces High. :D

    The Future Past tour 2023

    As the running order of the set is talked above... I'm surprised at how many people have predicted Alexander the Great to be featured in the encore. Don't get me wrong, it would sure be an exciting encore opener, but I doubt such complex and, in a way, demanding song would be placed there. Yes...

    Bruce Dickinson

    Bruce's "Evening With..:" tour landed on Helsinki, Finland last night. Couldn't attend myself, but here's something very interesting I gathered from the clips I've seen: Q: When are we gonna hear some new solo material? A: SOON! Obviously, there's gonna be a Maiden tour in between me finishing...

    Metallica

    Sounds like Metallica. Not super impressed, but not actively disliking it either. Meh. This one is kind of a "well, I'll just listen to the album and see how it works there" thing for me.

    THE FUTURE PAST TOUR - The Setlist Contest!

    Thank you for all of the entries so far! :) Here's an "Additional fun" kind of thing. When the tour is over (for this year), we can obviously give awards to the actually featured songs, but as of now, it's just a bit of an optional addition to our tour & setlist fan fictions and other healthy...

    The Future Past tour 2023

    To be fair, seems completely believable that there definitely were that many questions of it. :D Of course Bruce intentionally picked all those for the sake of a joke, but anyway, I can definitely believe that a lot of people asked that indeed.

    Not to brag, but I certainly did. ;) Well, as for Storytelling/Rime coat, Bruce actually mentioned that himself in the second show of the tour. :blush:

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I can see the appeal people see with the idea of the... well, "chorus" being repeated in this song and how the whole song sort of peaks very early on, but the video above actually demonstrates very well why that part only makes a single appearance in the song: a repeat doesn't really fit...

    Create your own Iron Maiden setlist!

    This would've been absolute pain for 2011 Bruce... :bigsmile:

    The Future Past tour 2023

    Yeah, both shows were definitely great! The biggest difference was that Bruce talked a lot less in the second show (and the speech before FTGGOG got dropped there) and he sounded just a tad bit more tired, e.g not holding notes quite as long etc. That, however, tells more about his absolutely...

    The Future Past tour 2023

    Yeah. Had I not utilized my access to presale (about an hour before the general sale started), I might have been left without a ticket... Well of course the second show was added immediately, but anyway. Last time I saw them doing two nights in a row I found the first one rather superior, but...

    The Future Past tour 2023

    Got tickets for the first Tampere show, thanks to presale; will be seated this time, as I'm not going alone. Considered the second one too, but I'm too broke at the moment, haha... So far, it's the first Tampere show and second O2 London show for me. Hoping for one or two dates in the Baltics...

    The Future Past tour 2023

    His tone there also has that infamous 1993 vibe..! But yeah, summer 2011 was quite tough one for Bruce. Then again, that's what I thought about the whole Senjutsu & SiT thing in the first place... But yeah, Futureal is definitely unlikely, but I wouldn't call it impossible. Powerslave was...

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

    Rallying round to the call! We can hear, far away... are the sound of distant drums! Loved it. While the 2018 shows were just a tad bit better, I thoroughly enjoyed the one show I managed to catch this year with the brilliant Senjutsu cuts, interesting encore (yeah yeah, Aces High, but still)...

    The Future Past tour 2023

    Eh, Maiden has successfully tackled the challenge of being dangerously near to SPINAL TAP, yet still walking it off many times, but... No.
