On their last tour they played the album they were promoting from start to finish every night, and played a selection of hits during the last part of the gig. They are absolutely not a nostalgia band.

Actually, they're playing material up to 1992 ....

And I personally would much prefer to see a setlist with material from the Brave New World and Dance Of Death albums. Don't presume to speak for everyone

I don't like both of the albums. The last one was horrible. The old maiden rule! Fear of the dark is the only 1992 song. The stageset and the songs are mainly "powerslave" aera!

I was there. It was ****ing horrible. Worse than Bon Jovi playing the entire Lost Highway live.

Note to bands: if your new album is not at the same level as your classic albums, do not play the entire damn thing. It is annoying as ****.

I agree, it didn't work for me either. Totally dead atmosphere. I wouldn't want to see any band do it in future, including Jovi.

Wrong... stage set yes, but they also played stuff like Moonchild and Wasted Years.

I LOVE A Matter of Life and Death. Love, Love, Love it. My second favourite Maiden album after Seventh Son.

I don't get why people don't like it so much. I honestly don't. Easily the best of the three reunion albums (and therefore the best thing they have pulled off in 20 years). It can't solely be because it's a little more midpaced than the classic era. The music is just too interesting. It really does feel like they've finally got that dark, progressive sound down that they've been working on ever since Fear of the Dark. It's the first time they've managed to keep the arrangements fresh, the sound and melody crisp, the lyrics interesting and exploring a theme in depth. Performance wise, Nicko and Bruce just shine.

The tour was an absolute dream for me - a far, far more satisfying experience than the mixed up setlists in the festival shows later last year. The only dissapointment was the predictable choice of their classics at the end - I could happily never hear 2 Minutes to Midnight again as long as I live.
