Atlas Arena, Lodz
I wonder how about the fan - base and attendance. Some sources state that ticket sales in Beijing were poor.
Maybe Brave New World was banned and they decided replaced it with Powerslave for the tour. Maybe they were never gonna play Powerslave til BNW was banned. Maybe they also planned on playing The Wicker Man but dropped it for length.
And I would love to see a pic of the event shirt.
Not me. Would take anything off of the Brave New World album over Powerslave. But I know I am in the minority on that one. And I am happy those who love Powerslave got to/get to hear it. And hey, I heard Brave New World in 2010, so I really can't complain.Now this seems very likely: Brave New World was chosen from the tour, the Chinese banned it and the band picked Powerslave to replace it, for the whole tour, with Wicker Man being cut due to length of the concert.
So...thank you, China! I take Powerslave over Brave New World all day
