Just got my tickets as well. Can't wait. Anybody has any speculation on what they will play in concert for this tour?

Assuming a 16-song setlist, here's my wish (4 songs from the new album and 12 from previous albums - 25/75 split - considering we did not get the Maiden England tour, so gotta also catch up with the classics there!)

If Eternity Should Fail
Speed of Light
Number of the Beast
Wasted Years
Powerslave OR Aces High
Death or Glory OR Shadows of the Valley OR The Red and The Black (can't decide, would be happy with any one of these)
Killers OR Prowler OR Phantom of the Opera
The Rainmaker OR Paschendale
Book of Souls
Can I Play With Madness OR Moonchild OR The Clairvoyant
Fear of the Dark (I wouldn't mind if this is replaced by The Wicker Man, Brave New World or The Ghost of The Navigator)
Iron Maiden
Encore:
Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter
The Trooper
Hallowed Be Thy Name

Just booked my flight and hotel for Ft. Lauderdale! SCREAM FOR ME FLORIDAAAA! :edmetal:

I'll be hitting Chicago as well- who will I see there?!
So far, by the tally I have been keeping, myself, you, Demigod, lampwick43, & Mr. Knickerbocker will be at Chicago. However, Vegas still has the most members attending (seven). Got my hotel already, book airfare soon.

Myself and @Detective Beauregard will definitely be at the Chicago gig! We can always do a mini-meetup before the gig, even if there's no massive shindig.

Yesss! My brother will be flying or busing in from MN, so unfortunately I am kind of at the mercy of whenever he arrives, but if there is a mini meetup I will be there if possible!

I guess Mexico City and Monterrey dates were announced. Did that just happen or did I miss that?

Ditto!
Just saw them at RiotFest here in Denver a few weeks back, and they are playing fantastically right now.

Just read about Mexico's dates. They playing in the "Palacio de los Deportes" is a bit weird, it has a capacity of 20,000 I think and last time they came to Mexico we were 63,000 in the Foro Sol. Well, at least Ticket Master makes an exclusive pre-sale for people who are clients of the bank I'm client of. And we're getting Anthrax :D

If we go by the order of the tour announcement, El Salvador dates will be next... And Brazil will be the last Latin America dates to be announced. I need patience...
