    Maiden must have played more shows than 2,174 as Dave has done that many according to the stats, and Steve has played Maiden shows without Dave in the beginning. Interesting though! ;)

    Yeah, I also think they must have been more (2,740+, maybe).

    According to setlist.fm the song Iron Maiden has been played 2222 times and that song has been played on every concert, sooo.... o_O

    How did you calculate that ?

    According to my list, since 1976 to 2018 they have played 2375. If you add the booked shows for 2019 that makes it to 2413.

    The link explains that it’s only tracking shows since the release of the debut album.

    Then it would be 2164 (Although I could have made an error of 10 when counting).. Anyway, its pretty accurate then

    Oh I've missed this. As @Luisma said, it's pretty accurate then.

    But can the info on setlist.fm be accurate and reliable ?

    Well if you take in consideration that I have listed 2375 concerts then, the affirmation of Iron Maiden (the song) being played 2222 times is no very accurate, however, the setlist it provides are pretty accurate.

    Here's an interesting interview with Paul done in 1984. It presents some interesting facts that I have never listened by Paul (he wanted to play/sing more melodic songs). I have always listened he said he wanted to play heavier or more like punk songs.

    Yeah, they are very accurate with the setlists, but may I ask you how did you calculate your score ?

    Counted each concert that I have listed. I have been writing a book on Maiden for ages and have done a ton of research so I have confirmed the ocurrence of each concert I have listed.

    Can live with most of them. But Wrathchild over Killers? 2MTM over Rime and Powerslave? IOA over WTWWB and Talisman? And the greatest shithouse in this list: TRATB over TBOS and EOTC?

    They were probably chosen because of their live performances, but I still don't get IOA over WTWWB.

    Kalata Out of the Silent Planet

    Well that's their choice,but I also will pick Wrathchild as the best song from Killers.

    Adrian is right, great rocker full of energy.... and not by accident it is a live staple. Killers is also a very good song - it's the title track, what else we can expect. :)

    I think Adrian had said (on some interview during TFF era... 2010 tour) that Wrathchild is one of his favorite songs.

    "... “The Red and the Black” just noses ahead for its classic-era feel."

    Ah, it was written by a Play-Classics fan. Everything is clear now.

    Which makes Red and the Black over Book of Souls even more questionable. I love TRATB but its instrumental section was the only time I felt disinterested (only slightly, mind) during the concert I attended. TBOS on the other hand was the unquestionable highlight of the show.
