Iron Maiden’s “Phantom of the Opera”

Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden during "Phantom Of The Opera"

The setlist at Shoreline (and I think for the entire 2012 Maiden England tour) was:
Moonchild
Can I Play With Madness
The Prisoner
2 Minutes to Midnight
Afraid to Shoot Strangers
The Trooper
The Number of the Beast
Phantom of the Opera
Run to the Hills
Wasted Years
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
The Clairvoyant
Fear of the Dark
Iron Maiden

Encore:
Aces High
The Evil That Men Do
Running Free

A very good setlist in my opinion, but if I was in charge I would have changed the last two out for “22 Acacia Avenue” and “Hallowed Be Thy Name.”

Maiden England Tour 2012

Steve Harris of Iron Maiden

Back in the 1982 – 1987 time frame I practically worshiped Iron Maiden–and Steve Harris in particular. The first chance I had to see them live was at the Cow Palace in San Francisco in 1985 at the ripe old age of 16. I saw them four times in the following two years while they toured in support of their Powerslave and Somewhere in Time albums. But, as I mentioned on my other blog, I only had the opportunity to witness Iron Maiden one other time (Brave New World tour) in the past 25 years… until this past Friday night when I made the drive down to the Shoreline Amphitheatre for a really fun evening.

Iron Maiden is currently doing a throwback tour to their Seventh Son of a Seventh Son days which is fantastic for me as I didn’t see that tour. They are calling it the Maiden England World Tour, the same name given to their video from the similar tour back in the late 1980s.

I’ll post some more photos from the show over the next few days.
