Aces High Bruce bad.
This is very underwhelming. They had to chance to give us something different and unique but it was all songs we've seen before. They could have given us a remote performance of 'Alexander the Great' but it's just more of the same! Very disappointing.
Oslo 08 was absolutely insanely good. Best Maiden show ever for me.Maiden always deliver the goods (I think the only time I have felt disappointed after one of their gigs was in 1998), but those AMOLAD shows were really special, up there with the Madrid show in 1999 (Ed Hunter tour), the Oslo show in 2008 (SBIT tour), London in 2017 (TBOS tour) and London in 2018 (LOTB tour).
Fingers crossed the band manage to be as good the next time I get to see them in 202x.
I said this couple days ago - they will overhype this and give us same old songs from well known shows.This is very underwhelming. They had to chance to give us something different and unique but it was all songs we've seen before. They could have given us a remote performance of 'Alexander the Great' but it's just more of the same! Very disappointing.
Nothing was from RIR apart from a few video shots- the audio of Aces High was from Mexico, and the video was cut together from a ton of different shows.It was great, but nothing exclusive.... probably ''Aces High'' from RIR was the exclusive, or I should say, only the audio.
I'm happy that we get TROBB, IM and HBTN from Download 2007 with a good quality - that version of HBTN was very good and very fast. All other songs were released from Download (with a high quality) before. They did not show only TBOS and SOL from 2016.
TROBB was broadcast on TV in 2007.
All of the "behind the scenes" stuff is irrelevant if the song writing, musicianship and stage presence are poor. Band managers should be there for legal statements but when it comes to reaching out to fans at at time when concerts are not possible I would much rather hear from the band members. They are the people who write and perform the music and they are the people we spend loads of money to go see on stage. Nicko was entertaining as usual and to be fair to Rod he does have some good anecdotes but I want to hear from the guys who I should have been seeing on stage last night, not the manager.I would say that they go to the shows because of how good he's in managing whole Iron Maiden machine behind the scenes.
