    Damn. That took forever. I've finally got to see Maiden live. I missed the days of old, but they still put on one hell of a show. Where the hell does he get all that energy?! I was awestruck. The setlist I guess would be my only gripe yet there was nothing to really gripe about! I wanted to see Wasted Years or Somewhere In Time live. I realized after, they must have played that in concert so many times before. No biggy though, considering the opening few lit the crowd right up. Wow! The Number of The Beast then right into The Trooper. Shit yeah!

    It was the first time I saw Dio too. \mXm/ Horns mean so much more from him. What a happy little troll running around up there. Motorhead I only caught the end of. But it was obvious who the majority of the fanbase was there to see. MAIDEN.

    They started at about 9:20 and played until 11:00. Bruce was all over the crowd. Demanding. I can only scream so long and so loud man! He scolded the pot smokers in the front. He didn't want to be falling asleep from that shit.

    Visually, the curtains they used for each song (changing with the albums) were EXCELENT! The lighting was great. A dude dressed as Ed walked out on stilts for a while. The brain was dropped in a big Eddy above the stage during the last song. The most impressive was how animated they all were. Man, seeing those 4 guitars together on stage like that... [​IMG]

    OK, I always get o_O at live shows. I'm just so psyched to be there. So here's my attempt at naming the setlist in the order I can recall...

    The Number of The Beast
    The Trooper
    Revelations
    The Wicker Man
    A Brave New World
    Die With Your Boots On
    Hallowed Be Thy Name
    Bring Your Daughter... To The Slaughter
    The Clansman
    Fear Of The Dark
    Run To The Hills (encore)

    Hmm....what'd I forget?

    Hopefully they played a lot more than what you listed. I've always wanted to hear "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son" live.

    I heard they took 2 Minutes, 22 Acacia Avenue and Heaven Can Wait out... that's about all I've heard so far. I hope it was still a good show though.

    To be fair, they did actually play 14 songs, not 11.

    They played 17 in europe and dropped 22 Accacia Avenue, 2 Minutes to Midnight and Heaven Can Wait

    IMO they should give Fear Of The Dark and The Clansman a rest, at least on the DOD tour. Where they could add some other golden oldies. But that is most likely not to happend

    It does to me. What is the point of even touring if you are going to play 11 - 14 songs? I can see if you are a newer band without a lot of material. Fans beg to hear Infinite Dreams and Only The good Die Young So add em in to the fucking set and make it a bit longer. If the old guys can stand it that is. What a joke.

    The set list got even shorter in Camden. Reports are they dumped Brave New World and Bring Your Daughter and added 2 Minutes. So they are now down to 13 songs.

    Well, I don't mind dumping either of those songs, but to only play 13 songs is ridiculous. I mean, I know they're old, but the songs aren't that difficult, surely they could manage to learn a few more.

    I heard most of Motorhead from the hall. I was tardy, but I sat down for the last few songs. I don't know his material very well, but I heard "The Ace of Spades" and "Overkill". I wish I knew more of his stuff. I would have appreciated them more. Maybe even showed up on time. Still, I showed respect for the old timers.

    Dio, I couldn't even pretend I know everything he played. It's not that there were too many songs played, there are just too many albums to know! From my standpoint, it seems that way. I've been learning his stuff slowly. A friend put a few compilations together for me a while back. I heard Holy Diver, Dream Evil, Stand Up And Shout, Rock And Roll, I Speed At Night and Evil Eyes. I'd have to say Holy Diver is my favorite track, so that made my day. Was Rainbow In The Dark played? I'm such a dud. We Rock? I'm guessing now. The drum solo was cool. There was a guitar solo also. I was floating away by then. I got to see Dio live o_O for the first time! What a fkn honor, huh?! Years from now when I know all his material, I'll remember this show. I wonder how much longer he'll be touring.

    One thing I noticed about both of these bands. The sound was sort of like a "brown noise" at times. That "woob woob woOOoob" sound. Damn, I hate that. It almost seems like if they turned it down a notch , it'd help. I went out in the hall as soon as I wiped the scream tears away. I got me a killer Dio shirt off the merchandise rack. FCKIN' $35 BUCKS for a little shit! :erk: Whatever. I had to have one after seeing that.

    These's guys have been tourning for how long? I'd think by now they'd know how to play most everything live. Both Maiden and Dio seemed to done long before I expected they would be. At the end of both sets I was like, "What? That's it? Noooo! Come back! You've got to be kidding me?! How long was that?" I must have looked at my watch like 10 times to make sure I didn't loose track of time. I guess I was expecting at least 2 hours for the headliner.

    EDIT: You said, "I know they're old, but the songs aren't that difficult."
    From what it looked like, they're trying to keep up with their old concert ways. Jumping and running around (almost) continuously. That's got to be tiring. It looks good, but how's the stamina these days? Maybe they chose putting on a shorter energetic show over reserving energy and just performing a longer one. :p

    Well, the running around is ok, but I'd rather have more music. Even if they have to cahin Jan to the stage.

    I hate to keep dragging DT into discussions, but Maiden really ought to go see a DT show and be shown exactly what it means to vary the setlist and play for a decent amount of time.
