With ALL due respect to our most favorite band,
I've been restless about their choice of songs for set lists lately, and I really feel that they should add more songs from their great catalog!
It is a little unsettling that 'Fear Of The Dark', 'Hallowed Be Thy Name', 'Iron Maiden', 'Wrathchild', 'Beast', and a few others ('The Evil That Men Do') are played at every show! Even the 'Somewhere Back tour' can't get rid of 'Fear'!!!!
Now, I do understand that 'Fear of the Dark' gets a very nice croud response. And 'Hallowed' is 3/4 of the fan club members favorite song, but, for God's sake, we seen, heard, and experienced it for years now.
I just wish that the band believed in their other songs as much as I do.
For example, I really think that any average Maiden fan, and or fanatic alike, would be absolutely blown away by this set list:
Back In The Village
The Longest Day
For The Greater Good Of God
The Fallen Angel
Lord Of Light
Do you see my point?
Or am I the only one who likes their other songs too.
Just sharing a little, most of my posts are in praise of the band and their great gifts and the way they give them to us (integrity, quality, fun and dazzlement), but, I think that this topic has a valid place here on the board to be worth the "post".
-yes, I'm still a "trooper", just a tad... bothered.
Wot say U?
