They never played Invaders live, Distance Runner only once in Serbia (
then yugoslavia)

Yeah, I thought Invaders has never been played, and Distance Runner must not have worked well live at all.
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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09-P_Lt6R00

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.
Yea it's definitly a underrated songs, lots of cool melodies and the intro was awesome live.

That's accurate, and unless Maiden makes a MAJOR break from tradition, it always will be.

What tradition? Iron Maiden has NEVER not played a song on the supporting tour for its album and then played the song on a later tour. Never. If a Maiden song misses its first chance to be played live, it will probably never see the stage.

And that's a darn shame. When I got into Maiden, I got into them much thanks to Dance of Death and Brave New World. Some of those songs, like Paschendale and Dance of Death, I would put up there among Maiden's best. Would love to hear those live again, but chances feel slim.

I'd say out of the later stuff, both DOD and Pasch have a very good chance to be played live again.  DOD was even part of TFF tour.  The band seem really content playing a lot more material from the last four albums.  Actually minus AMOLAD.

I had the chance to catch them on a brief European tour in 2010 and saw them play Benjamin Breeg and These colors don't run. It was fantastic to see some AMOLAD songs. That was one hell of a set list, two thirds were the songs from Brave new world onward and I really appreciated it.

Eh, I've always liked it. It's an eerie ghost story of a song, plus it played a part in my discovering Ingmar Bergman and his film, "The Seventh Seal." :tup

That said, there's really no denying that the best song off that album is Paschendale. :hefdaddy

I remember when they played AMOLAD in its entirety. That was awesome.

I don't, because I didn't become a fan of the band until after that album cycle ended. :(

It's a tough call between SSoaSS and AMoLaD as Maiden's best album, I think. Both are such killer works!

That was awesome, and I doubt any performance of the full album live ever gets released.  As far as I know, only the Download show was filmed and that show was not the full album performance.  The actual album was recorded in a way to give it more of a live sound and feel and I assume the band is content with that, but I wish there was a secret awesome pro shot concert they have in the vault somewhere.

From Facebook:


We are very happy to announce that following his recent MRI Scan, Bruce was today officially given the all-clear by his specialists.

Bruce says,

“I would like to thank the fantastic medical team who have been treating me for the last few months, resulting in this amazing outcome. It’s been tough on my family and in many ways it was harder for them than me. I’d also like to send a heartfelt thanks to all our fans for their kind words and thoughts. I’m a firm believer in trying to maintain a positive attitude, and the encouragement from the global Maiden family meant a great deal to me. Right now, I’m feeling extremely motivated and can’t wait to get back to business as usual, as soon as I can!”


Rod Smallwood continues,

“We are of course all absolutely delighted that Bruce’s doctors have pronounced him free of cancer. Although Bruce is naturally eager to resume Maiden activities, it will take a while before he is completely back to full strength, as we explained previously. Because of this, the band will not be touring or playing any shows until next year. We know our fans will understand the situation and, like us, would prefer to wait until Bruce is back to his usual indefatigable levels of fitness before going out on the road.

For now, the focus will be on putting the finishing touches to the new Iron Maiden studio album and that is what we will be concentrating on over the coming weeks. The release however will definitely be this year. Meanwhile, I’d like to echo Bruce’s words and thank all Maiden fans. You have been incredibly patient, putting Bruce’s health and well-being first during this difficult time and the band and I appreciate all your positive support.”

Great news about Bruce: figures the guy would be already raring to go, I have no idea where he gets the energy to perform the way he does. New album is just icing on the cake.

The fact that they dropped Pasch from the TFF tour (after a few pretty shaky performances) makes me think they'll never attempt it again. Maiden aren't really a band to step out of their comfort zone, that applies to setlists too. They tend to shy away from songs that are tricky live.

DoD I'm sure will be back though. That one always seems to go down well.

Yup, when that tour started Brighter Than A Thousand Suns was on the set and then was scrapped for Paschendale which was then scrapped for Wrathchild  :facepalm:

Actually, Brighter was immediately replaced by Wrathchild, while they actually went back and forth with Dance of death and Paschendale for a while before deciding to go with the former for the rest of the tour.

Yea. Huge bummer, BTATS and Paschendale were two of the best songs on the set. The latter being way better than DoD imo.

Wrathchild has always been the when in doubt, go to song.  To bad it's 5 minutes shorter than the other songs.

It's a good song and was admittedly a much needed refresher on that tour after 2 newer songs. It really got the audience pumped. Still sucks having to miss out on BTATS though.

It is good, but so safe.  There are plenty of other older tracks the band could crack out that would get the crowd going just as much.

If they did this though, I'd let it in the setlist any day of the week.
