TBOS Tour Predictions

If we are to hear TRATB, please can it be a shortened version?

It's the same length as Rime, but not as nearly as interesting musically. And I'm worried about how Bruce will carry it off on stage night after night, he struggled with Aces High on the last tour and this seems as though it's on par with it vocally.

We don't know how Bruce's voice is going to be when the tour begins, of course, but I also wondered if there would be a shorter set or greater use of songs with longer instrumental parts.

Reckon they are going to play five songs from TBOS.
IESF
SOL
TRATB
DOG
TBOS.....

Will be surprised if they play any more.
What the rarely played song/songs will be is anybody's guess.
Hoping for BYDTTS or ATG... You never know.:)

I would be very disappointed if they didn't play "Tears of a Clown", which is this album's "Coming Home" in terms of style and length.
I agree that "Bring Your Daughter to the Slaughter" would fit well in the setlist... that must be the effect of the "Speed of Light" video game! ;)

My prediction these days:

1. Speed of Light
2. Eldorado
3. The Number of the Beast
4. If Eternity Should Fail
5. The Book of Souls
6. The Trooper
7. Death or Glory
8. The Red and the Black
9. Bring Your Daughter to the Slaughter
10. The Evil That Men Do
11. Heaven Can Wait
12. Fear of the Dark
13. Iron Maiden

14. Be Quick or Be Dead (though I think Nicko might not be able to do it anymore)
15. Tears of a Clown
16. Hallowed Be Thy Name

All the songs from TBOS minus EOTC can potentially be played. I think the one that will almost certanly be ommitted is TGU because of the strange tuning. All the others can be in the setlist. I think that if they opt with many of shoter older songs those five that you listed are performed. If they opt to play something like Pachendale, DOD, WTWWB or FTGGOG they will replace TRATB with TOAC,

We don't know how Bruce's voice is going to be when the tour begins, of course, but I also wondered if there would be a shorter set or greater use of songs with longer instrumental parts.
Or vocal parts that don't require as much powerful singing such as When The River Runs Deep and Tears Of A Clown.

It always sounds like something of a strain on his voice, even if he makes a good job of it.

Are you sure.......?


amazing work by Bruce in that show btw
Some shows are better than others. Also, this was at the beginning of the tour. By the end his voice was worn out. Next year will be tough on him. Maybe they will do a shorter set. 90 mins?

Man Of Sorrows might actually be my favorite on the whole album. Didn't see that one coming at all.

The Talisman was the absolute highlight of the set for me during The Final Frontier tour and I saw one of the last shows on the tour at the O2 in London. It is doubtlessly a challenging song vocally, but on that particular night Bruce nailed it.

New Prediction...

1. If Eternity Should Fail
2. Speed of Light
3. Wrathchild
4. These Colors Don't Run
5. The Red and the Black
6. Coming Home
7. Death or Glory
8. Flight of Icarus
9. Powerslave
10. The Book of Souls
11. Heaven Can Wait
12. Fear of the Dark
13. Iron Maiden
--------------------------------
14. The Number of the Beast
15. Hallowed Be Thy Name
16. Sanctuary

Flight of Icarus goes along nicely with Death or Glory with the whole Aviation theme going on there. I also included These Colors Don't Run because I know many want to see those songs off that album return and I think this one goes nicely with all the war fears going on and France just declaring war. So who knows? We'll see.

Hallowed twice? And 2MTM which will almost certanly be dropped? And no FOTD which is in the EPK?
