The Clairvoyant
This was great when they played it in 2008, but I guess "The Evil The Men Do" is the only commonly-played track from this album. Maybe "Can I Play With Madness".
This kicked ass when they played it in 1999, and I suspect it was chosen in part because it was a good song with which to show off the then-new 3-guitar lineup.
Man on the Edge
Also played in 1999... sounds good with either Bruce or Blaze singing.
Great song, and I enjoyed the theatrical way they presented it when touring for that album, but I guess older long songs are less likely ot be included in setlists at this point.
Be Quick or Be Dead
This hasn't been played since the mid 90s. I'd enjoy seeing it.
The Clansman
They played this on 3 straight tours from 1998 to 2001. This is a song that sounds better with Bruce on vocals (the way "Afraid To Shoot Strangers" arguably sounds better with Blaze singing). The 3 guitars also work very well for this song. I would love to hear it again, but I guess they just have too much material to include longer Blaze era songs in the setlist these days.
This was fantastic live in 1999. There are some Paul era songs that don't sound as good with Bruce singing, and I had thought this would be one of them, but Bruce did just an incredible job with this one.
Murders in the Rue Morgue
I'd love to hear it.
The Nomad
It's never been played live. I'd love to see it done. I fucking love that section in the middle where all 6 instruments are doing something different, yet it all works together. This would probably require a lot of rehearsal time, heh.
Transylvania - I'd love to hear this and give Bruce a little rest!
I'd love to hear "Transylvania", "Genghis Khan", or "Losfer Words (Big 'Orra)". And I imagine Bruce would be fine with the breather too, heh.

There are so many rarely or never played songs that I would love to hear them play. Though it's never going to happen, one can dream, heh. To name just a few off the top of my head... "Purgatory", "Invaders" "Still Life", "To Tame A Land", "The Duellists", "Caught Somewhere In Time", "Alexander The Great", "The Prophecy", "Fates Warning", "Run Silent Run Deep", "Childhood's End", "Judas Be My Guide", "The Aftermath", "The Edge Of Darkness", "Don't Look To The Eyes Of A Stranger", "The Thin Line Between Love And Hate", "Monts├ęgur", "Face In The Sand", "Mother Of Mercy", "Starblind"...

Current setlist played last night in Frankfurt:
If Eternity Should Fail
Speed of Light
Children of the Damned
Death or Glory
The Red and the Black
The Trooper
The Great Unknown
The Book of Souls
Fear of the Dark
Iron Maiden

The Number of the Beast
Blood Brothers
Wasted Years

Still going twice...Up the Irons!
Yep... this has been the setlist since the tour started last year. I was thinking about making the 4-hour drive to see the nearest show on last year's leg, but I didn't. Just as well, since they're playing 15 - 20 minutes away from me this summer.
