    The Fallen Angel with The Mercenary on the European part of the tour, around june 2000, before they went with The Mercenary in each set.

    At the end of the tour, in january, Out of the Silent Planet and The Fallen Angel were inserted into the set. For the last show of the tour, Rock in Rio, both songs were withdrawn and Run to the Hills was included instead.

    Travis The Dragon The dreamers may die, but the dreams live on.

    Oh, that's right. I'm so used to the main setlist that was played on the North American tour.

    Definitely looks like COTD and TGU

    Looked at that on my phone with the brightness all the way up. I was wrong, that's definitely COTD and not Killers. And that looks like TGU for sure. I think we have our set!

    I was kind of hoping more than one song would be different from last year, but I'll take it. Great Unknown over Tears is definitely an improvement in my book.

    Not sure if this is the right thread but any pre- or afterparties planned in Frankfurt (28th and 29th) and/or Hamburg (2th)? I am doing those three shows and would be nice to have some Iron Maiden life outside the gig too.

    I'm very happy if that's genuine and says Great Unknown. First word does look like 'great'.

    Ugh, Great Unknown. Boring! Beer song.

    I hope this is true, just so I can hear Adrian play that awesome texture riff. TGU is a fantastic example of Maiden putting their three guitars to good use.

    If they play The Great Unknown I'll be a very happy man. I think it's Tears of a Clown though, it slowed down the set too much between COTD and TRATB so they switched it with DOG. Or could it be Revelations?

    Edit: Looks like at least two words, so probably not Revelations.

    Imagine them doing The Great Unknown and the swapping it with Wrathchild after one gig.

    I don't want to imagine that at all. <_<

    Someone better be there to get a recording of it. They're gonna pull a Texas 2010 on us and drop it for Wrathchild.

    Is it bad that I kinda want this to happen just for the reactions?

    I'd just rather listen to Wrathchild, I think.

    I don't like The Great Unknown. At all.

    I don't see how The Great Unknown would be a better live song than say Tears of a Clown. It's a bit stop/start and has the potential to trainwreck if they don't lock in correct time. TOAC is way more straightforward.

    That being said, I think TGU is a better song than TOAC and I'm interested how it might work live.

    I still don't think they change a thing on the set list though. Except maybe add Wrathchild of course.

    After a good couple of minutes of staring at that list, I think I finally noticed which words you're talking about... :p Between Powerslave and Book of Souls, right? Indeed, looks like Great Unknown. That's an amazing and surprising addition to the setlist if that's true. TGU is probably my third favourite song on the album. Sooooo much better than Tears of a Clown.
