Certainly if Maiden played the same songs at a lower key (as you mentioned) added to slowing down some tracks the time they have as a live band would be larger. And they can still barely pull it of... it's noticeable some members struggle due to absolutely natural causes. So I really don't understand why the band insists on punishing themselves this way. But hey... it's their call.Bruce is doing fine. He is 63 years old who sings difficult and high pitched songs in the original keys. They should tune down half a step, but they can still pull it off and ultimately I'm happy either way just enjoying the little time they have left as a live band.
Yup... he seems to really nail it here. RTTH is a song Bruce normally deals with fine despite the high notes at the chorus.It's interesting. I think this RTTH in Romania is better than most of the 2019 performances of that song vocally (never mind the absurdly slow tempo especially during the bridge after solo).
Once again 100% agreed.And my judgement... Aces High is far more difficult song to sing than RTTH.
Yes he is. Pre-chorus and the third section in the "jump" part after Jan's solo. Pure genius, the latter, I like studio version also but this addition live is phenomenal.Of course he can. He sounded pretty good on it in RIR 2019 imo, although he was not in full force and it was the end of the tour (he sings better now!). Overall, he sounded good in 2019. 2018 leg of the tour was a highlight for Bruce and the live album should have been from this year.
Btw, is Adrian still playing the harmony in Sign Of The Cross along with Janick? I love his inclusion during this part.
Looks like no changesNo Lithuanian reporters to tell us anything about the show of today?
let's see aces high! if you find any clips, kindly post them sirLooks like no changes
Probably not a livestream but there's usually a highlights show broadcast on TV a few weeks after, I imagine we'll get at least two songs.Here's hoping Download will have a live stream with decent sound. If it's anything good as Rio 2019, that will be awesome!
4 days between shows would do wonders for his voice. He will struggle with it immensely when the back to back shows start happeningSeems like there's a pattern developing where he's off on Aces one night, then the next gig he makes it work, then the next gig he's really off, and now he's better again. Good to hear it sounds like the tempo picked up.
