    Maybe, but they didn't play as Maiden so it doesn't count.

    Stockholm 1998 is a great Blaze Bayley era bootleg!

    It was not part of the "tour" as such (I can't see how a "secret" concert could "promote" anything, then be part of a tour), it was Bruce's introduction concert (at home), during which they also played "Run to the Hills".

    Brazil 1996 is probably the best Blaze bootleg IMO.

    surprisingly there are loads s/b recordings from Blaze's era. in regards to Somwhere on Tour both Paris and Philadelphia are soundboard but a bit funny sounding as they are also available on old VHS tapes. you can see those gigs on youtube. in regards to Dortmund I'm not aware of full s/b from that gig but I added to my bootleg 'Iron Maiden' that i ripped from youtube. a german guy there said that at the time they hadn't aired that song cause it was too violent or something. this is my first post. I'm glad I found you guys:)

    Yep, the track Iron Maiden was cut from the original broadcast due to Eddie being murdered on stage. You can hear about that story, and see the footage, by watching 12 Wasted Years.

    that's it. I remember now. btw are you or anyone else aware of any s/b recording from 2010 tour? this is the only tour I'm missing (apart from full ' 83 of course). I don't collect just about anything. only a few good ones from each tour. just to be clear this is not exactly Final Frontier tour. I've seen Maiden in Dublin 2010 (Dio meant to be there as a support, sadly died not long before that) and this is a warm -up tour where they only played 2 songs from their upcoming Final Frontier album.

    Nope. The New York amateur bootleg is good, tho.

    This? (see below). I like the sharp, edgy, high end sound of it. Love how the guitars come out. Bruce sounds in pretty good shape!

    I'm surprised to hear Prowler introduced by not Bruce. I genuinely can't even remember another instance of that happening during Bruce's tenure (somebody else speaking on stage instead of him). Definitely a great performance, but the quality is really bad, honestly. Horribly noisy and treble-heavy.

    Yeah I read somewhere (possibly Bruce's book) that Steve used to do a bit of talking on stage (you can hear a bit at the end of Drifter on the Sanctuary b-side "thank you good night, cheers") but Bruce nipped it in the bud by telling Steve that he was the frontman and he'd do the talking.

    The version of Prowler from BOH also is not introduced by Bruce.
