The only exception to this would be "The Number of the Beast". When the spoken intro tape failed to start, Bruce made up by reciting the bit:I think it is important to note the following thing:
Aces High, Caught Somewhere In Time, Out Of The Silent Planet and The Final Frontier (Satellite 15...) - the intro of all those songs is never played live (it was played through the PA system).
The only exception to this would be "The Number of the Beast". When the spoken intro tape failed to start, Bruce made up by reciting the bit:
I have a flexi disc that came free with Metal Hammer around the time of Donington 92 containing an interview with Steve and Bruce I think, it's been a long time since I listened to it. Steve mentions the Fugitive as a potential track that might be in the set. Maybe they rehearsed it and it didn't work out.
Some songs have minor changes live:
Sanctuary - the bit with the crowd participation just before the end of the song.
BYD... TTS - has a ''yeah-yeah'' intro from Bruce.
DOD - has a voice tape intro live.
TAATG - it was shorter live in 1998.
MITRM - the intro was skipped in 2005.
FHTE - it was longer live in Donington '92.
Running Free and Drifter - both are longer live.
Paschendale - has a intro tape with sound effects and Bruce's voice.
WED and Revelations - have a intro tapes (LOTB tour + Early Days tour for WED too).
If I'm not mistaken, ''Drifter'' was also changed live during the Early Days tour (at least in Ullevi 2005) - Adrian's solo was shorter and they added a third solo played by Janick just before the end of the song.Sometimes there is only 1 verse after the solos in Killers and Where Eagles Dare live, and sometime the intro of Revelations is only played twice rather than 4 times.
