Aw. Still reserving my judgment for catching everything on Youtube, and seeing how they go a couple of shows in.I thought about that when I saw their itinerary and that they were playing in Barcelona and Lisbon during the school holidays but then decided not to make plans based on Maiden's touring schedule. Seeing tonight's setlist it seems I was right: I would have struggled to answer my daughter's question by the end of the show: "Why is the singer dressed up like that and sounding like a strangled cat?"
The only resonable would be to do the full album.I have doubts about any conventional album tour for Senjutsu, unless they do it next year. They've premiered three of the songs as part of LOTB, and Senjutsu won't be a very new album by time they hit the road again.#
If they do, though, count me in.
I mean, it's the last song of the first night of the tour shot from a phone camera. By the time they get to Donington they'll have found their groove.
Yeah, it's got to be earlier. I'm sure the audience reaction'll be fantastic with it closing, but it's lacking some energy to it.
Yes. A short song (3 minutes) among the first seven would be great!Actually, I'm quite satisfied with the setlist on paper. At their level, the balance is quite hard to find. If it were for me, I would switch TNOTB and FOTD and replace "Sign of the Cross" with a shorter epic, like Phantom for example, and add a not-too vocally demanding shorter song, like "Killers".
Mmmmmm I get your point... two excellent openers but overall (and IMO) nah. First I must say these are two amazing tunes. Now, BQOBD is heavier, faster and energetic but hasn't got that pomp, and lacks the sing along factor. CSIT has as much pomp as Aces High (if not more) but hasn't got that catchy sing along chorus and the intro (although being gorgeous... man I livo that thing!) kinda flows into the galloping verses while Aces is a no warning speedster.CSIT and Be Quick or Be Dead, maybe.
