Iron Maiden’s Tour May Actually be Awesome

According to Pollstar [ ] Iron Maiden will focus almost entirely on the ’80s in both song choices and stage set for this tour.

Bassist Steve Harris said the choice of material and sets for the tour is a thank you to fans.

 “On the last tour we opened the show by playing our new album, A Matter of Life and Death, in its 80 minute entirety,” Harris said. “We thought we needed the challenge and it proved the right thing to do. However, it can be hard on the fans playing so much new material, and we really appreciated the superb effort they gave us. So now I guess it’s payback time. It’s tremendous to be able to use the profile of the DVDs to do what is effectively an ’80s show.”

You damn right. That’s why they’re popular and that’s what they should do.
