    Is there any chance they could add Paschendale to the BoS 2017 set? It is the 100 year anniversary of the battle.

    May I ask why? Song is too long? Doesn't fit in the set? Just wondering.

    Personally, I don't think they have enough reason to bring it back, and would rather showcase newer long songs like RATB and TBOS. Powerslave was there in 2016 to keep up the oldie count.

    RotAM would be good also. I do like BoS and RatB as well. Just Paschendale is a top 5 song to me, regardless of era.

    Undeleted this thread - I believe it got caught in a recent spam purge.

    @Littestu66 - please make yourself aware of the spoiler policy for when the tour starts!

    Personally, I would kill any one of you assholes if that would convince the band to play Paschendale.

    I will abide by the policy. Thanks. And yeah it's one of many great tunes of their career.

    The greatest, imo. I'm really sad I didn't get to see it live, and I find it unlikely they'll bring it back. I get it, but it makes me sad.

    I realize they may not. But since it's the 100 year anniversary I thought there may be a small chance. It's epic.

    Shit, I never thought of that.

    Yeah 100 years ago in July I think.

    It doesn't matter what Cried thinks. Why would they bring it back?
    Did you have any particular asshole in mind?
    They've kinda missed that then; unless you mean this July?

    EDIT: Okay, you did mean this July. Still isn't going to happen.

    The battle was from July-November of 1917.

    Maiden don't normally mark moments in history by changing their setlists though.

    Good point. Well the other stuff from the 2016 tour is good as well.

    I'd take Powerslave over Paschendale, personally.

    Yes.

    I don't think Paschendale will ever be played live again.

    Perhaps not but it's right up there with the other 8 minute epics.
