My ideal set for the last tour (I hope that it will never come :D)
I think when the revival tours era will be finished ,they should do a tour with all songs not being played in the past or only a few songs.Im sure they would have success like always.I cant see Maiden doing that kind of tour,but who knows? back in 96 i didnt see maiden doing a reunión or a revival tour,so......

1.Caught somewhere in time
2.Sea of madness
3.Alexander the great
4.Infinite dreams
5.Out of the silent planet
6.Flight of icarus
7.Only the good die Young
8.Judas be my guide
9.Still life
10.No prayer for the dying
11.From here to the eternety
This is my wishful thinking setlist for next album tour (SPOILERS: I reference the current tour setlist):
1. New song
2. New song
3. The Trooper
4. Afraid To Shoot Strangers (this one has to be a staple again)
5. New song
6. New song
7. Coming Home
8. Dance Of Death (at least one reunion epic)
9. Heaven Can Wait (SIT songs are a must, Wasted Years is played more often)
10. The Number Of The Beast (I'd like to see it gone, but not gonna happen)
11. New extra long epic (like When The Wild Wind Blows was)
12. Different World (an AMOL&D epic would take away too much time sadly)
13. Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter
14. Fear Of The Dark
15. Iron Maiden
16. The Wicker Man (mandatory BNW song)
17. Murders In The Rue Morgue (tired of Wrathchild, at least one non-new album surprise)
18. Hallowed Be Thy Name (best closing song IMO)

Okay, I'm not sure if this thread already exists but please tell me if that is so.
So, here, you can create your dream Iron Maiden setlist. It can a 80's setlist or whatever.
Just create the setlist that you always wanted.
My setlist is called "The Hidden Treasures". This is my dream setlist. It is about the underrated Iron Maiden songs. But there's also some more famous tracks on it as well. Well, here's my setlist!

1: Judas Be My Guide (Fear Of The Dark)
2: Holy Smoke (No Prayer For The Dying)
3: The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner (Somewhere In Time)
4: Face In The Sand (Dance Of Death)
5: The Nomad (Brave New World)
6: Losfer Words (Big 'Orra) (Powerslave)
7: Purgatory (Killers)
8: Back In The Village (Powerslave)
9: The Alchemist (The Final Frontier)
10: Childhood's End (Fear Of The Dark)
11: Run Silent, Run Deep (No Prayer For The Dying)
12: Alexander The Great (356-323 BC) (Somewhere In Time)
13: Iron Maiden (Iron Maiden)
14: The Prophecy (Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son)
15: Sun And Steel (Piece Of Mind)
16: Hallowed Be Thy Name (The Number Of The Beast)
17: Only The Good Die Young (Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son)

As you can see, I included some classic ones like Holy Smoke and Hallowed Be Thy Name. And of course their self-titled song. It's been included in every Iron Maiden setlist so why change that? Well, that's it for me, now it's your turn! I will comment on your setlist and tell you my opinion on the setlist. Well, have fun creating setlists and talking about them.
No idea earthier Cried.

Anyway, I'd probably call mine 'The History Tour' and play songs from every album. Each show will alternate by constantly chopping songs with others. Also, this will be Iron Maiden's on Social Media based tour, where fans who are going to a certain concert can suggest songs to be played on the upcoming date, which utilises the use of a digital setlist, which begins an hour after one show, and locks an hour before another show, with other fans removing songs from the band's setlist. The set lists will only be 20 songs in length

1) The Phantom Of the Opera (Iron Maiden)
2) Killers
3) The Prisoner (NOTB)
4) Flight of Icarus (POM)
5) The Trooper (POM)
6) The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (Powerslave)
7) Alexander the Great (SIT)
9 Bring Your a Daughter (NPFTD)
10) Be Quick or be dead (FOTD)
11) Man on the Edge (TXF)
12) Futureal (VXI)
13) The Wicker Man (BNW)
14) Paschendale (DOD
15) Brighter than a Thousand Suns (AMOLAD)
16) Mother of Mercy (TFF)
17) Iron Maiden (IM)

1) Hallowed Be Thy Name (NOTB)
2) Fear of the Dark (FOTD)
