How would empire of the clouds sound like live?

Maiden has enough material for a full symphonic concert.

This is my dream setlist with a full orchestra and chorus:

"Symphonic Beast"

1) The ides of March (orchestra only w/ Nicko)
2) Phantom of the Opera
3) Seventh son of a seventh son (+ chorus)
4) Sign of the cross (+ chorus)
5) Blood Brothers
6) Dance of death
7) The clansman (+ bagpipes)
8) Paschendale
9) Alexander the great
10) Mother Russia (+ chorus)
11) Journeyman
12) Rime of the ancient mariner
13) Empire of the clouds

Encore

14) Hallowed be thy name (+ bell)
15) Fear of the dark

That would be so incredible! And since it would be longer than their usual set because most of the songs are on the long side, they could tour only stadiums and do a limited number of shows.

Not sure if the orchestra adds a whole lot, but this version has pointed out to me that it would be great to hear empire live. Maybe Michael Kenney could play the piano if Bruce is not up to it.

Really good cover--musically, they totally pulled it off. Definitely one of the stronger tribute singers I've heard, who mimics a lot of the inflections Bruce used in the song. The only downside is that the orchestration isn't terribly prominent in the mix (or maybe I didn't listen to it at a high enough volume), so it didn't sound too different from the recorded version. There was the little flourish they did at the end and a cymbal crash or two that popped somewhat, but otherwise, not too different.
