It has to be Aces High in the number 1 spot for me. There’s nothing like the roar of 20,000 singing along with ‘Run, live to fly!’
I don’t think I could rank the rest. They have all worked well for their respective tours. Even Satellite 15… The Final Frontier was a cool live song. It felt like...
I’ve been watching the videos of Hell on Earth live. Stunning. I’m not sure how I’ll be able to remain dry-eyed during this one. Whenever I play it at home, my daughter sits on my lap and listens to it. She occasionally does a little dance as well! It’s such an emotional song, and it stirs so...
Rainmaker is one of my favourite Maiden songs, and I agree it is not that great live. Bruce just struggled to sing it.

We’ll have to agree to disagree. Personally I find it more obnoxious to whinge about a 71 year old drummer who is simplifying things to make his life a little bit easier. I think he has earned it. A couple of mistakes, missing drum fills and snare rolls is not enough to get my pants in a bunch.
I know I often rip on Bruce for being stubborn and sometimes straining, but fucking hell is he nailing this song. We are so lucky to be fans of a band that sound this good in their late 60’s.
I see he is not moving as much and has extra monitors. Good choice, Mr Dickinson.
