The thing with Maiden there stage show is stuck in 1988 in terms of production and looks quite outdated by todays standards especially anywhere outside of an arena.And that was more than 30 years ago.
Rammstein, whether you like it or not (I have seen them live once, enjoyed the show yet found it somewhat puerile) are MILES ahead of Maiden in what a cutting edge show should look like these days.
If I may use the M word too, Metallica also are at a different level in terms of their live show.
I know, I know, someone would say that neither of them are at Maiden’s level musically, but Maiden are not at Therion’s musical level either.
Most bands are more cutting edge in that regard, but obviously musically Maiden are at another level compared to many
