Terrible setlist

Jer

The dotage of a dotard
What's the worst Maiden setlist you can come up with using these rules?
  • No B-sides or cover songs
  • No more than 3 songs from any album (gotta keep it from getting too obvious)
  • No repeats within your setlist
  • 15-20 songs total
Here's mine:

1. Satellite 15
2. The Angel And The Gambler
3. The Apparition
4. Journeyman
5. The Unbeliever
6. Charlotte The Harlot
7. Don't Look To The Eyes Of A Stranger
8. Fortunes Of War
9. Holy Smoke
10. Fear Is The Key
11. The Educated Fool
12. Gangland
13. Mother Of Mercy
14. The Assassin

Encore:
15. The Aftermath
16. The Age Of Innocence
17. Weekend Warrior
 

Randalf

Ancient Mariner
4. Journeyman
5. The Unbeliever
6. Charlotte The Harlot
7. Don't Look To The Eyes Of A Stranger
8. Fortunes Of War
9. Holy Smoke
10. Fear Is The Key
11. The Educated Fool
12. Gangland
13. Mother Of Mercy
14. The Assassin

This section isn't too bad! There are a couple of weak songs and the pacing would obviously be a problem, but I'd love to hear a big bunch of those songs, haha, especially Fortunes of War. But yeah, opinions, opinions... :D

Oh, I can give this one a go too. Not all of these are weak songs, but the set itself is pretty lame with "surprises" being rather weak cuts and the classics selection being as obvious as you can get.

1. Satellite 15... The Final Frontier
2. Gangland
3. Wrathchild
4. The Trooper
5. The Angel and the Gambler
6. The Apparition
7. Another Life
9. 2 Minutes to Midnight
10. Weekend Warrior
11. Fear of the Dark
12. Iron Maiden
13. The Number of the Beast
14. Run to the Hills
15. Running Free

I would have included Sanctuary if it wasn't against the rules. :D

5. Bruce Dickinson's rant on pop music
Such a fan favourite! I hope they won't dust off this one though.

12. Bruce Dickinson calls everyone a wanker

I'm pretty sure they've done this a couple of times... Not sure if Bruce can do it anymore though, he was at his best with these in 1999-2003.

I don't think we'll ever get to hear these again, but at least there's some decent bootleg footage available of the older performances. Either one would be a real surprise for the TLOTB set though!

Funny enough, the bolded section would be pretty awesome set, even if it could be paced differently. :D
