What @Iron Lurker said. I'm not saying it can't be played (though for the record, I doubt it given it hasn't since '83), just that I don't see why Maiden would perform the song to tie in with the film given the history.Hasn't stopped them from playing it live at all before.
I'm in the FC exclusive merch section and I don't see it.Actually, looks like we can find out for ourselves - I just now was able to look at the FC exclusive merch at their site.
Less difficult than where eagles dare. He struggled with that a lot on tour sounded very strained. If he can try pull that off then BQOBD isn't off limits at allI can't stand 'Iron Maiden' on the setlist anymore.
BQOBD I think is a quite difficult song for Bruce to sing nowadays.
Im gonna bet there are plenty of jam session bits used by the way Bruce mentioned even rehersals were recorded. And all the songs were played "live" after getting the basic idea downYesterday reading Kerrang's interview with Bruce, i noticed there were no mentions about possible hit/standout songs. Except for Hell on Earth. This worries me a little bit. Please no 'jam session' songs.
I think he’s saying they are not going to play it just because the Dune reboot is coming out.
Oh okay, that's sensible. I read too much into what you were saying
Makes sense to me. Those last three Steve tracks are all very long. I imagine Time machine being a suitable closing track for Disc (or 'disco'? 1), in the same way that TBOS was a good Disc 1 closing track on TBOS the album. Bet anything it has twiddly little acoustic guitar bits in it courtesy of Janick. I hope the length of those three Harrisepics are justified, and the structure of the songs is good, and not a Red-and-the-Black-but-longer attempt to write the Maiden epic to end all Maiden epics. Otherwise Disco 2 could really drag.
Personal favourite:Guys apologies if this had been posted. Massive interview from Bruce on Kerrang:
I pre-ordered the super deluxe box set. Now a days i listen to everything on spotify and don't really have use for physical discs but... this is a maiden release and so i needed to order it for my peace of mindHey, has anybody preordered yet? If so, which format(s)/editions did you get?
People need to give up on the idea of Iron Maiden dropping from the set. It will always be the set closer. It’s still the best song for the big Eddie reveal.As far as a Senjutsu tour setlist….play up to 5-6 tunes from the album. Keep some of the classics such as Trooper, Hallowed, Number of the beast. Add Paschendale back into the set somehow. Drop Iron Maiden(the song), even though I totally understand why they play it every tour. Drop Fear of the Dark for this particular set and add maybe something like Ghost of the Navigator or If Eternity Should Fail.
