AMOLAD is awesome. Yeah, you have calm intros left and right, but they work really well regardless. Out of the Shadows, Lord of Light and The Legacy are some of the band's best songs.

I was thinking more about Benjamin Bregg (that intro is totally out of place on a great rocker song) and These Colors...Out of the Shadows is really good the way it is. The intro of Lord of Light is cool and all, but IMO that song would work better if it starded with that guitar riff around 2 min mark. And yes, The Legacy is just a PERFECT song  :metal
And I really like the intros of Brighter..., Longest Day..., Greater Good..., but my point is I think there's more than enough calm intros for a Maiden album (7 songs in 10!). I miss the more immediate/energetic approach of the older ones, I just think that it makes the 80's albums flow better.

Ok.  Let's play a game. 

Imagine that Iron Maiden never did a follow up live album to Live After Death, and they are getting ready to release Live After Death TWO.   It will be a two disc set that will not have any tracks that repeat from Live After Death 1.    You have been given the task of putting the track listing together.    In our imaginary scenario, IM hasn't released a live album in almost 30 years, but in reality, you can include anything you wish from the many existing live albums they have released.   Maiden England, A Real Live/Dead One, Live At Donnington, Rock In Rio, Death on the Road, Flight 666, and En Vivo can all be used as source material.

Not trying to be flip, but En Vivo! is just about perfect in my book.

But En Vivo contains 6 tracks that appeared on Live After Death....so you have to replace them with...well...SOMETHING.   :angel:   Paschendale from Death on the Road??   Sign of the Cross from Rock in Rio perhaps?

Okay, fine.  :biggrin:  Keep in mind that I am a relatively new Maiden fan, so I am not familiar with the plethora of live releases by them. 

Those are good choices.  Since I have 4 more to play with, I will add:
-Wasted Years (Flight 666)
-The Clansman (RiR)

I will come up with more.

I was listening to what has been released from Diannos new project Architects of Chaoz. To be honest I'm liking what I'm hearing so far. Now if he would get his ass in shape and work on his live performances that would be great.

In fact, many of them were played live in some tour and, after that, almost totally forgotten.

Yea it's really sad.

I found this list on https://maidenfans.com/tours, can't confirm how current it is because it only streches to BNW, don't think any of these songs have been played on recent tours though.

Quote
Songs played live by Iron Maiden:

Iron Maiden
All

Killers
All except “Prodigal Son.”

The Number of the Beast
All except “Gangland.”

Piece of Mind
All except “Quest For Fire” and “Sun AndSteel.”
“To Tame A Land” has been played live but a live recording has never been released.

Powerslave
All except “Flash of the Blade”, “The Duellists”, and “Back in the Village.”

Somewhere in Time
All except “Deja-Vu”, and “Alexander the Great.”

Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
“Only the Good Die Young” and “The Prophecy” not played.

No Prayer for the Dying
All except “Fates Warning”, “Run Silent Run Deep”, “Mother Russia”.

Fear of the Dark
All except “Fear Is They Key”, “Childhood’s End”, “The Fugitive”, “Chains Of Misery”, “The Apparition”, “Judas Be My Guide”, and “Weekend Warrior.”

The X Factor
All except “Look For The Truth”, “Judgement Of Heaven”, “2 AM” and “Unbeliever”.

Virtual XI
All except “Como Estais Amigos”

Brave New World
All except “The Nomad” and “The Thin Line between Love & Hate.

Played non-album songs:

Women in Uniform
Invasion
I’ve Got The Fire
Total Eclipse
Burning Ambition

Unplayed non-album songs:

Virus

I wonder if there's a particular reason why they never have played Only The Good Die Young, always thought that song would be a killer live. The same with Alexander The Great, such a great epic imo.
Interesting that they actually have played To Tame A Land, had no idea.

I think a good list would be, songs they played on the tour for support of the new album that were never played again.  That list would be very large I think.

I'm pretty sure that looks accurate, but it's ruling out songs that have only been played a couple of times too.  If you add in songs that have only been played a handful of times or only on it's current represented album tour, like Sea of Madness, Silent Planet or Fallen Angel, the list would be bigger.  I didn't know they have played Invaders or Long Distance Runner live.

Funny you mention, I just listened to the audio and yea as with TTAL Bruce stuggles alot but according to the poster they removed it from the setlist because it ruined the flow.

That's weird, it's one of their most cracking underrated songs.  Nothing wrong with that recording at all IMO, sounds great and the band performed it really well, a shame.

Speaking of TTAL, it was wise to not continue that on future tours.  Bruce not hitting the money note really kills the climax.

I was thinking Invaders wasnt played either, but I assumed I was wrong. 

I do recall Bruce teasing the Greece crowd some years ago saying they would play Alexander the Great.  Seems very unlikely now that it will ever be played.  In fact, the history of the band shows that if they didn't play a song during the promotion of the album tour then they never will play it.
