    I know we would all love this setlist because it includes a lot of songs never played live, or at least just a few times.

    But... how would you grade it a s a setlist for a tour?

    - The Alchemist
    - The Loneliness of the long distance runner
    - The Clayvoyant
    - The prisoner
    - The Duellists
    - No prayer for the dying
    - Only the good die young
    - For the greater good of God.
    - Dream of mirrors
    - Starblind
    -Brighter than a thousand suns
    - Judas be my Guide
    - Lord of the flies
    - To tame a land

    - The great unknown
    - Remember tomorrow
    - Paschendale

    I think it's a solid 10, and could perfectly be a real setlist without playing any of their 30 or 40 most popular songs, and none of the 3 "juggernauts" of their respective albums.

    pretty sure all but 5 of those songs have been played live... The duelists, the alchemist, Judas be my guide, starblind and Only the Good Die Young are the only 5 I'm aware of that haven't been played in that list... Most were regular rotation during the supporting tour of the album.... with some rare exceptions... It would be great to get a tour of rare, unheard or rarely played songs... there are quite a few...

    I always thought Judas would be an absolute lock for the setlist during the FOTD tour.

    1. Be Quick or Be Dead
    2. Rainmaker
    3. Killers
    4. Still Life
    5. 22 Acacia Ave
    6. Face in the Sand
    7. Different World
    8. Deja Vu
    9. Out of the Silent Planet
    10. When Two Worlds Collide
    11. The Duellists
    12. When the River Runs Deep
    13. To Tame a Land (Eddie Comes Out as Powerslave Mummy)
    14. El Dorado
    15. Iron Maiden

    16. Murders in the Rue Morgue
    17. Purgatory
    18. Flash of the Blade
    19. Flight of Icarus

    A lot of shorter songs, so these 19 songs can be done in 100 minutes. Throw in some Bruce banter and crowd participation during Flash of the Blade and you have a set just under 100 minutes.

    some of these have been played live but not with any real frequency, so I will take "hidden gems" as tunes that have been played 100 times or less, which is a small number considering over 2000 shows (number of performances according to setlist.fm)

    The Legacy (44)
    El Dorado (98)
