    Yep. Could be that Bruce is apprehensive, because his vocals were great on their latest album. I think if they'd change their music a bit and indeed surprise with a different sound, a new album could be awesome. Then again Steve perhaps isn't ready for that.
    At least that's what I could imagine.

    I think you guys are reading too much into it.

    I don't think we're reading into this enough. Dave's clearly implying that he's surprised at the plans they haven't made about next year or the year after.

    Lego Shadows in the stars, we will not return!

    Probably just a couple months off while British Lion is touring.

    I would bet my money that the Gulliame Tell studio is booked from October untill Christmas.

    I wouldn't. I'm not expecting them to do anything else for the rest of the year. If there's another album, they'll record it early 2018.
  8. It will be a 90s history tour with one uk festival date. Stopping at every American city..

    We said numerous times... There will be no more history tours (confirmed from various band members after ME tour). There might be a greatest hits tour with some 90's material, but not 90's tour.

    No idea what Dave's surprise is, but (& this could go in any of the multiple threads where we all seem to be discussing the same things) it would quite cool if they did an Abbey Road style studio thing again. I'm thinking it would be a good way for them to perhaps play some really really deep cuts in the studio like this, thus avoiding having to expose these tracks to multiple on-the-road live performances (which they clearly don't want to do). I mean, AtG in this kind of one-off format would be the shit. Imagine that release was advertised with no preview? Description might read something like: 10 tracks that have never been performed live before. You'd snap that shit up in a second!

    If Steve & Rod had any imagination at all they would have been filling in gaps between tours with stuff like this.

    I really hope that the surprise is a new album or a rare tracks tour (possibly with orchestra).

    Now that would be awesome!

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

    Also remember that Bruce still has some solo material on the burner.

    If they "take a break", I'm sure Bruce won't waste his time on relaxing ;)

    2006 live. Did any other band do that? I don't think so.

    Really? I always assumed that someone, somewhere, had surely done this before Maiden.

    Surely someone has done it, but Maiden was quite unique. A band with such a strong cagalogue only playing five classics after 72 minutes of new material is extreme. Imagine Metallica doing that.

    Didn't Nicko say in an interview that he would find it interesting to do only songs they've never done before. He said it to Dave, and Dave's response was something like "but then we have to relearn all those songs".

    Can't remember. Maybe it was posted in this thread or the fan club forum. I'll try to find it.
