Your dream set list?

Invader

Ancient Mariner
Quite simple; if you could choose a setlist for Maiden that you could hear at a concert, what would it be?  You can mix b-sides, any songs from any albums, etc.  Just what songs you would most like to hear live...  I guess it should fill a full concert, about two hours.  Note that this isn't "what are your favourite songs", it's just "what would you like to hear live?

Mine would be, in this order:

As an opener, the most underrated Maiden song ever: Invaders
Killers
Montsegur
Sign of the Cross
Futureal
Rime of the Ancient Mariner
The Evil that Men Do
No More Lies
2 Minutes to Midnight
Phantom of the Opera
Judgement of Heaven
Paschendale
The Trooper
Fear of the Dark
The Legacy
And as a grand finisher, Hallowed Be Thy Name!

It's got a nice balance between the albums, with only Somewhere in Time and No Prayer for the Dying unrepresented.  But I know that there is no chance for me ever hearing even half of these songs live...  :(

OMG...I could go on and on! I'll pick 20 tunes that would be just aweome to hear!

Let's open up the show with Caught Somewhere In Time (SO many openers to choose from! This one kills though!)
Phantom Of the Opera
Murders In the Rue Morgue
Killers
* I have omitted NOB tracks cuz they're played EVERY SINGLE tour...they sound amazing live, I've heard them plenty of times*
Revelations
Flight Of Icarus
Still Life
Flash Of the Blade! *Outstanding!!*  :yey:
Powerslave
Wasted Years
Stranger In A Strange Land
Infinite Dreams
7th Son of a 7th Son
Sign Of the Cross
The Clansman
Wicker Man *amazing song, I don't care how many times I play it*  :D
Dream Of Mirrors
Paschendale
These Colours Don't Run
Brighter Than A Thousand Suns

That was hard...I would list like, 40, but I have to be realistic...they would only play like 16 songs a show anyhow...but 20 includes everything from their whole career, basically...but they're great tunes  :ok:

Whoops!  But to be fair, both of those threads were done several years before I joined  :)

I wasn't criticizing you for creating this thread. Someone creates a thread like this about once a year. I only pulled out my old post because it was easier than thinking of a new setlist. :bigsmile:

I couldn't find it. I looked through hundreds of my old posts, and couldn't find it. It might be in the database somewhere, but I don't know where.

However, I shall attempt to reproduce it from memory now.

The perfect Maiden setlist:

1. Paschendale
2. Paschendale
3. Phantom Of The Opera
4. Paschendale
5. Paschendale
6. Paschendale
7. Hallowed Be Thy Name
8. Paschendale
9. Fear Of The ... no, just kidding. It's Paschendale again.
10. Iron Maiden

-- Encore --
1. Paschendale
2. 2 Minutes To Midnight
3. Paschendale

Hehehe, I wonder if anyone would survive that setlist! :)

I'd go for a list of many songs I've never witnessed live. In fact I have only seen the last two tracks I mentioned.
