Yea I'm real glad you Aussies are getting to see Maiden on this tour. It's gonna be a great concert. And Maiden is doing venue events, not festivals or whatever, so that's even better. Enjoy man.

But yea, come join the Maiden thread in the Metal forum. We talk about this sh*t all day everyday.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

Rod Smallwood, Iron Maiden's Manager, further commented; "Following Bruce's various hints from on stage this last year about our plans for 2008 ("We are taking some time off to build some pyramids!"), fans have been pestering me for details of the tour and especially asking which songs from that era will be played. That may be as easy as a run in the hills but we will keep our aces close to our chest on this issue. I know it would only take a couple of minutes but at this stage of planning, I'd have to be clairvoyant to know what they will do. I'm sure though it will be no revelation for you that we intend to make up for those wasted years by visiting a large number of hallowed metal venues around the world. Historically 'Powerslave' was an incredibly important album for the band and it would be madness if we didn't give the fans a taste of the full on Iron Maiden show from that time. With our jumbo there really is no rime nor reason why the band cannot now visit fans almost everywhere as many have been real troopers to have waited this long. Heaven only knows what the band will choose but if l could and did tell you now l would have to shoot you! You'll all have to be patient and see. But it will be spectacular. No fear!!"


So that means so far for the setlist we have:

Run to the hills
Aces high
2 minutes to midnight
The clairvoyant
Revelations
Wasted years
hallowed be thy name
Powerslave
Can I play with madness
Iron Maiden
Rime of the ancient mariner
The Trooper
Heaven can wait
Afraid to shoot strangers

Have I missed any? Anyway looks promising, BEST.SETLIST.EVAR perhaps?

Ibanez RG1550 with Bareknuckle Nailbombs and Mothers Milk
1976 Gibson SG Standard
Peavey 6505
Framus 2x12 (V30s)

I thought they were gonna play songs from the Powerslave to No Prayer for the Dying era. In any case, if they play Rime of the Ancient Mariner I will wet myself

Tickets go on sale in 22 days. Consider mine purchased.

I'm actually pretty happy with my concerting this year. Even though I missed Muse, I got to see Black Sabbath and I'll be seeing Trivium/Machine Head/Arch Enemy and Iron Maiden! I wonder how many of the original metal bands I'll get to see in my lifetime?

How much do you suppose tickets would be?

I was going to go to sabbaths concert, but tickets were like 150+
