I've always been moderate on AMOLAD, preferring both Dance of Death and The Final Frontier over it, but I listened to (most of) it last night while ripping my CDs to the network drive (I'm on "I" if no has guessed yet) and man, it was GOOD.  Really good.  There's some really good stuff in the reunion years, and daresay it might now be a better overall body of work than that which came before.  I'm not 100% there yet in saying that, but it's getting closer than it should be in an age where "rock is dead".


I made this thread before you joined. Nothing wrong with saying the Reunion Era was better.

By the way, anyone hear the band doing an acoustic "Tush" by ZZ Top while in the studio recording AMOLAD?   Bruce KILLS it.

Actually it's a wonder it didn't happen SOONER  :lol

Yeah, I was there. He was apologetic to the security guard. It was a great show. This is THE show to see if you jave never seen Iron Maiden. Every single song was amazing. Even Run to the Hills, which has been overplayed to death, was good to hear. Sign of the Cross and Revelation were the highlights for me.

AMOLAD is easily my favorite reunion album (though I haven't given Book of Souls a good listen since it was released), and one of my favorite IM albums of any era.

Well, he was sincere about not wanting to run away again after a tour and being commited long term. By now the reunion era is officially older than the recording era of Maiden until Bruce's return! 1980-1999, 19 years, against the almost 21 now years since the reunion.

Also I think that, ironically, if Bruce were to tour right now, he'd make huge numbers, at least in Europe. In Italy maybe he wouldn't get the basket venue that Iron Maiden and Dream Theater play, but I have no problems to think he'd sell out another moderately big venue where the likes of Blind Guardian, Avantasia and Alice Cooper play. If he'd tour in the summer as a solo act, I'm sure he'd get the headliner spot unless some of the titans were around as well.

He'd have no issue touring, maybe not arenas but he could do good size venues in Europe and all the mid sized spots in the US, similar to Demons and Wizards recent tour.

D&W played The Palladium in Worcester. When I saw Bruce on the AOB tour, he played The Strand in Providence, which is basically the same size as The Palladium.

Saw them yesterday in Sao Paulo. Incredible concert, the band sounded amazing and the production is the best i've seen yet, by any band.

Incredible experience.  :metal

I wonder how Micheal Schenker and UFO feel watching all those people rock out to "Doctor, Doctor" while their both essentially a bar band now!  :'(

Speaking of that - has someone actually found out *which* exact version of Doctor Doctor the intro of Maiden's shows is? I never really found out, a Michael Schenker version came quite close to it, but I never found the precise one. I swear once it looked like a live version of the song, performed by him and not by UFO, with all the live crowd noise taken out.

EDIT: seems this one, but the tempo feels faster and at Maiden shows you don't hear the crowd: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFdWQSq0A24

Let's hope so!  I'm so tired of everything having to be "streaming" online or having to watch it on YouTube.
I want the blue-ray so I can blast it through my big stereo and big screen tv. Plus the resolution is much better.

Finally watched the whole concert from Rock in Rio. Preaching to the converted when I say this show should really get an official release.

Bruce has evidently so much fun with all the theatrics and the costume changes. He probably even enjoyes Fear of the Dark more now that he has to "act" more through the song. And he's totally badass in his jacket / white shirt / leather pants look of The Number of the Beast  :metal

He's also so intense and passionate during the soft verses of For the Greater Good of God. That song took years to grow on me, I remember at the time of its release waving away as the mandatory and predictable Harris solo song full of Harris cliches, and I was almost annoyed at how everyone seemed to consider it the new Hallowed Be Thy Name. But, as Harris-ish as the song is, it's actually damn good after all.
