Oh man, good freakin times
Maybe they will change some songs or maybe not (considering the 2 years without touring).So what are your thoughts on the playlist for next year? Surely it cannot be the exact same as the previous legs; the only question is which songs are most likely to be swapped, and which songs do you think/want to make it in?
I thought the 2014 changes were not too bad. There was a rumour they rehearsed No Prayer for the Dying for the 2014 leg...Maybe they will change some songs or maybe not (considering the 2 years without touring).
Maiden England tour was also three legs and the setlist was the same in 2012/2013, but with three changes in 2014 - although if they change some songs in the setlist and release a video concert recorded during this 3rd leg, the setlist of the already released live album (NOTD) and the setlist of the video release are going to be different... something that never happened so far in the band's history.
They can play some of the songs from the LOTB tour poster with the hints (from the 2018 leg of the tour) - ''The Clairvoyant'', ''Heaven Can Wait'' and ''Powerslave'' (played fairly recently).

As much as I'd like to believe in them changing things up and playing, fuckin' I dunno, AtG, 22AA, DWYBO and other acronyms in lieu of the songs we already heard next year, realistically yeah nothing's gonna change. Maybe they'll insert a new song there somewhere but even that seems highly doubtful since they seem hellbent on keeping LotB and that new album separate from each other.
Agree.Maybe they'll insert a new song there somewhere but even that seems highly doubtful since they seem hellbent on keeping LotB and that new album separate from each other.
This European 3rd leg next year will be in countries which Maiden have played with the same tour during the first leg in 2018... maybe it has a slight chance the setlist will not be the same because of that (and because it is a 3rd leg). As Rod said, they prepare even more spectacular LOTB tour for next year - this can only be done by changing some songs thus changing the stage props/backdrops, I think.
Can you find this interview?Steve said so in an interview.
I'm left with the impression that Maiden don't do special things for the anniversaries of their albums (like Priest did for British Steel, SFV, DOTF and Turbo, for example... and probably other bands).I have to say that next year will be the 40th anniversary of "The Number of the beast" so perhaps they'll do something special.
