    Moving swiftly away from the above discussion...

    Judas Priest would be amazing and if that's true I categorically don't care who else would be on support (a good thing given I don't care for Slayer). Scorpions would be a personal pipe dream of mine - but nothing more than a pipe dream.

    I did see the scorpions open for Judas Priest on the angel of retribution tour. Killer package with two quality bands.

    No prayer for Alestorm to open on the next tour?

    I'd rather Gloryhammer if we're getting Christopher Bowes involved.

    Atlantean Codex, Gloryhammer and Sabaton for the next tour.

    Wogmidget I rather like the restless nights

    Nightwish, anyone? I know it's not a perfect musical fit, but it certainly wouldn't be the first time

    How about Ravenage, if we're getting Elliot Vernon involved?

    Having looked up the past work of the band members more thoroughly, I definitely think Christopher Bowes' Bumilingus should reunite as support.

    I still wanna see Amon Amarth open for Maiden, dammit.

    Nightwish subheadlined to Maiden at Download festival last year. They're a massive headlining band themselves in Europe, and I can't see them wanting to do 45 minute sets in the UK. They would also cost a lot. The support doesn't need to be a perfect musical fit though, they just need to be good.

    Ravenage....Raven Age....The Raven Age.... nooooooooooooooooooooo

    That's the Maidenfans Tour, for sure.

    If it is Slayer and Judas Priest, I think they'd be playing more than 45 minute sets. Probably 12-14 songs each.

    At Download last year Amon Amarth didn't open but they were on the main stage several hours earlier and put on a hell of a show. Second only to Disturbed and Maiden themselves in my opinion.

    Scorpions moped the floor with them!

    Which is too much for a support band in my opinion.

    Amon Amarth are fantastic live. Great show in London last year and I'm expecting them to be awesome this Friday too!

    Yes, I'd definitely be happy with Amon Amarth as a support band. Would they go for a growly band, though?
  17. Black Wizard

    Black Wizard Out of the Silent Planet

    Probably not. If I meet them on Friday I'll ask if they've ever been offered the opportunity.

    Bad memories BW?

    I seem to remember this lot being very keen to open for Maiden, not sure what they're doing these days though:

    Why does there need to be an opening band?

    No way! All subjective I guess but Priest were on fire that night I thought.
