Dream Bruce Dickinson setlist

If things went down differently and Bruce actually did a couple of solo gigs somewhere between TOS release and today, I doubt he'd rehearsed that many "new" songs with the (whatever line-up that might be) band. There are certain favourites that would undoubtedly be played and since it wouldn't be a proper TOS tour anyway, I'd believe he would have stick with two or three album highlights. :)

Power Of The Sun and especially Abduction are definitely album highlights. ;)

Power of the Sun is indeed a brilliant song - I wish Maiden had that kind of choruses around more often - and Abduction isn't bad either, but with a limited space I'd go with Kill Devil Hill and Navigate the Seas of the Sun. :p

Whether assembled from various concerts or one special extended performance, I don’t know; this is alternate history regardless. But I think it would have been a pretty stellar epic release from Bruce, as a triple vinyl / double album. It starts with the trio of songs SFMB opens with, but then takes a pause from the TCW tracks to spotlight a couple of AOB’s jams. By the time we get to “Gates of Urizen” it’s been nothing but banger after banger and the quieter dynamics offer some breathing room before things continue.

The main focus of the performance is the new Bruce Dickinson band, with 8 TCW and 7 AOB songs represented. Tattooed Millionaire and Skunkworks each get one song; I’d love to have more but that would mess with the vibe (and they both have live records themselves based around the video shows released IRL in this fantasy). Balls to Picasso slips in with both songs from the original SFMB album. Meanwhile Bruce also lays down five classic Maiden tracks, throwing the gauntlet down at his former band. And “Tears of the Dragon” has been moved to the back end to be a moving penultimate song.
Kudos for including this, it’s a killer live track.
Agreed, that’s why I had it in there so early. Tried to get all or at least the majority of songs they actually played on those two tours so it feels realistic as a setlist.
If Bruce did an all Maiden song tour along with Adrian:
  1. Moonchild
  2. Two Minutes To Midnight
  3. Sea Of Madness
  4. Revelations
  5. Flash Of The Blade
  6. Powerslave
  7. Back In The Village
  8. The Writing On The Wall
  9. Stranger In A Strange Land
  10. Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter
  11. Empire Of The Clouds
  1. If Eternity Should Fail
  2. Flight Of Icarus
  3. Wasted Years
