    Looks like Adrian is still fighting to slow down the songs. :) Probably because he can't play as fast consistently as Steve, Janick, and Dave.

    He has never been at ease with playing fast. Anyway, I must admit that he was quite right at the end of the 1980s : some of songs of Maiden England are played way too fast; for others (i.e. Infinite Dreams), it perflectly fits.

    I hope Steve doesn't fire him again for that..

    I think Adrian just wants the songs to be played at the tempos they should be played at, nothing wrong with that. Some songs work better a little faster live, some work best exactly at tempo.

    Adrian says the same thing Nicko said a few weeks ago, they don't know what they are doing next. Are they lying or is that really the truth?

    Why wouldn't they know?

    They've reached the point where every tour could very easily be the last tour. Bruce's cancer probably strengthened that idea. I'm sure $mallwood has an idea of what he'd like the band to do next, but the band is probably only focusing on one thing at a time now.

    Steve and Adrian are like Batman and The Joker when it comes to this. They need each other. There's a video out there of ASAP performing Wasted Years and it is dreadfully slow. No energy whatsoever. On A Real Live/Dead One the songs are so fast that the life gets sucked out of them. They've reached a nice middle ground since Adrian came back and I'm happy with pretty much all the tempos since the reunion.

    Glad they're not like Batman and Robin anyway

    New Dave interview:


    “We’re not stopping after this tour; this isn’t the last tour by any means,” Murray said during a telephone interview last week. “We’re going to finish this one out, which we’re having a lot of fun [doing], and then we’re going to take some time off and next year there’s going to be some surprises.”

    I hope surprises doesn't translate to farewell tour. I remember Priest teasing their Epitaph tour in a similar way (obviously they continued after that though).
  12. Travis The Dragon

    Travis The Dragon The dreamers may die, but the dreams live on.

    Well, he does say "by any means" and that sounds like they're not planning to quit any time soon. Look at all the energy they still have on stage. Nicko said here they won't quit as long as they can give 1 million percent and don't become a parody of themselves.

    "Some surprises" sounds like this special run of gigs that we often speculate about. Maybe a new live album as well?

    What Adrian and Nicko said is so confusing... Especially since Steve is always so positive about next album. I find it hard to believe they "don't know" if there's another one. I think they just don't want to be asked about it, because they can't share any details. Damn, I hope it's not like some members want to continue recording and some not.

    I'm not sure a new live album would be particularly surprising, given that Donny '07 and '13 were recorded and the 2016 tour was such a big deal that I'd be surprised if there wasn't a live release. Short of Maiden playing [insert beloved deep-cut], I'd say the biggest surprise would some sort of 90's-themed package in lieu of a proper tour

    Although I'm hesitant to get my hopes up, I REALLY hope they do some sort of "deep cuts" special gigs. A new album would be nice too.

    Guys, when has a Maiden surprise ever been genuinely surprising?

    matic22 H is shorter for God.

    Other than a few (heavily speculated) album anouncments... Never.

    The only really shocking announcment was Bruce's illnes.

    Yeh, exactly. It's not like they had any hand in that.
    Some people might have been listening to gossip & speculation pointing in that direction; buy, okay, I'll give you that! :ok:

    Yeah, I fear that as well.
    Going to take time off.... sigh. Not too long please.
