    His new material is crap, I’ll give you that. He hasn’t had a great album front-to-back since Brutal Planet, with just a couple really good songs per album on each one since. But he still puts on a hell of a show. His current tour is his best since Theatre of Death in 2009 with a killer setlist packed with very obscure deep cuts and a completely redesigned stage show. As long as he keeps performing, I’ll keep going.
  2. What Are You Listening To? 2020

  3. The weirdest thing about the delay to me is how they ran TV spots for a couple weeks following the announcement with the new date, and then they just dropped off completely. I suppose it was necessary to get the word out so to speak, but it just felt really jarring.
  4. I did my last marathon before SPECTRE, and I also got it mine on hold when NTTD got delayed. I’m itching to do it though, really only watched a few in the last year or so.

Estadio Nacional, Lisbon, Portugal 25 - Olympic Stadium, Barcelona, Spain The concept for the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour was inspired by Maiden’s mobile game and comic book of the same name and the stage set design will feature a number of different but interlocking “worlds” with a set list covering a large selection of Eighties material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity. Maiden manager Rod Smallwood explains further, “As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with “History/Hits” tours. We enjoy working this way for many reasons, not least because it gives the band a chance to play both new material and the older favourites which we know fans like to hear. It keeps things fresh, not just for the fans but for the band too. “For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie! I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.” Killswitch Engage will be Maiden’s Special Guest on headline European shows from May 26 to July 1 inclusive, and in the UK from July 31 to Aug 10 inclusive. Guests on other shows are currently being finalized and will be announced soon. Most shows go on sale Friday 24th November, with some a little earlier - check the Tour Dates page for full info. As always, there will be an exclusive presale for Fan Club members, starting Monday 20th.
  6. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast World Tour 2018-2020

    To be fair also, Rio last year was not even gonna be of the stronger gigs IMO. Took Bruce a few songs to warm up it seemed like. Well, some of the European dates scheduled for this year got rescheduled to next year (I’ll update the tour dates in the OP) - the gigs outside Europe, as well as all of the festivals and a few of the European headline shows were flat out cancelled. That’s a particularly sore subject with me right now - personally because I was supposed to do all of the non-European gigs this year, but also because I really think it’s unfair Europe took priority over the countries they rarely get to play when Europe already had an extensive leg of this tour in 2018. Especially when you consider the circumstances in some of the other countries; Australia has had it particularly rough with metal artists cancelling the last year aside from the coronavirus cancellations (Both Ozzy and Metallica cancelled last year), Manila was supposed to be their first ever gig in the Philippines and without the festival they were supposed to play pulling them in it seems unlikely they’ll ever play there now, Japan has now had five of the seven Maiden gigs scheduled in the last decade cancelled (The two gigs in 2011 were cancelled due to the earthquake), and Israel was to be their first time there in 25 years, and their first time with Bruce. Hell, even in Europe they cancelled the two Russian gigs, which was the only country on the European tour which hadn’t already had a gig in 2018. I really think rescheduling 2020 could’ve been handled better. Beyond the rescheduled LOTB dates for next year, Rod did say in the press release about LOTB that they’ve already got a busy 2021 planned, which is why they can’t make up all of the dates. Album 17 was mostly or fully recorded in Paris last March, so that will be released sometime shortly after LOTB wraps next July I imagine. Then a tour cycle for that starting in late 2021, and...
  7. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast World Tour 2018-2020

    His voice has honestly been better post-cancer than it was in the years leading up to it I think. He’s sounded phenomenal at nearly every gig I’ve seen between The Book Of Souls and Legacy Of The Beast. On Maiden England, there were definitely some gigs where he was sounding a bit tired.
  8. One of my all time favorite Bond moments in Brosnan laughing about the shit he had to endure while filming DAD in Everything Or Nothing.
  9. RussTCB Stepping Down

    So...does this mean @RussTCB is no longer "TCB"?
  10. RussTCB Stepping Down

    Really sorry to hear you’re stepping down from the staff @RussTCB. It’s been an honor and a blast working with you on here for the last seven or so years. The community really wouldn’t be what it currently is without your work to keep building this place. I am however glad to hear you’ll be sticking around the forum still. I feel very fortunate to have you as a good friend outside the forum as well, and look forward to the next time we can spin some records in your basement
  11. Rolling Stones Eternal Touring Thread

    Today’s stream is literally just the bonus tracks from Havana Moon, nothing unreleased
  12. NITL live videos on youtube

    Flight 666 wasn’t cherry-picked because they’re an inconsistent live band though, they picked different songs from different shows because the concert film and live album compliment the documentary, and they wanted everywhere on that leg of the tour to be represented in that. I know you’re not saying what they did with Flight 666 (And more recently The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter) is a bad thing, I just wanted to clarify they have very different reasons for doing the occasionally live album like this than most bands that cherry pick performances for a live album.
  13. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    Well yeah - insurance is the big issue for a lot of bands. But whereas Maiden have announced gigs are cancelled when they cannot take place due to government restrictions, radio silence from GN’R when a gig officially cannot take place. Again, Maiden is cancelling gigs as they can whilst blaming it on the government for insurance purposes. Of course none of those gigs will go ahead, but they can’t pull the ticket links, etc. until there’s a government restriction on events for that country.
  14. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    My understanding from the way Iron Maiden has been handling their cancellations is it’s also really out of the hands of the promoter - it seems that the only way no one really gets fucked by their insurance in the event of a cancellation is when the government restricts events from happening. Maiden has been officially cancelling gigs piecemeal as different countries’ governments have restricted events beyond the date of the gig. That way both the band and promoter can say “oh well, out of our hands!” And no one gets burned. Of course, this isn’t really why GN’R haven’t cancelled yet as MANY of their gigs cannot take place, they’re just refusing to announce any cancellations it seems.
  15. Rolling Stones Eternal Touring Thread

    Watched it. It was cool, but wish it was longer and had some more deep cuts. The only remotely deep cuts were Out Of Control and You Got The Silver, both of which have been played a fair bit still since 2012.
  16. New Rolling Stones song 'Living in a Ghost Town'

    Wow, dunno how this flew under my radar for four days. I dig it, it's great to hear anything fresh from the Stones. I do agree though it probably doesn't have the same impact that Doom & Gloom, or even One More Shot did when I first heard those.
  17. Rolling Stones Eternal Touring Thread

    “Walk up” specifically refers to tickets bought at the venue at show time - that’s not quite how the Stones do it. They play games so they can try and say every show is sold out in advance sales. Tickets for Stones shows are typically on a flexible pricing scale - the price on a ticket when they go on sale isn’t necessarily the price it will sell for closer to the gig. Let’s say there’s tickets for $399 at the on sale date - if those tickets are still available in the weeks leading up to the gig, you may see those same tickets for $250 or something. The other big trick they use is the Lucky Dip tickets. They’ll do more drops of Lucky Dips in the last several days before a show if there’s still a significant number of tickets to shift. At $29 per ticket, it’s guaranteed to sell out.
  18. Unofficial updates on 2020 tour

    Yeah - poor GN’R. Hard to be the big rockstars who have made hundreds of millions of dollars over the last four years and might not get away with making another hundred million this year. Don’t worry about the fans who have bought tickets, arranged travel, and are being held in limbo because no one cares to announce anything, and realistically won’t even get their money back because the entertainment and travel industries’ sole purpose right now is to fuck people out of their money - they’ll be just fine.
  19. None of us are really arguing the film should’ve still been released as planned. Any of us in here that are frustrated because of the repeated delays - he this film not been delayed several times prior, we’d have had this film well before any of this happened.
  20. TWINE is a really frustrating one for me. It did a lot of things well - good plot, exciting locations, formidable villains, an incredible PTS and a good title song...it really could’ve been one of the greats. But it just missed the mark on a few too many things - Denise Richards was horribly miscast, the dialogue is pretty cringey at times, the twist is unsuprising. It’s not enough to completely ruin the film for me, but it’s certainly enough to keep it out of my top 10. the funny thing about Brosnan’s tenure to me is, despite the fact that I consider DAD to be the worst Bond film by a pretty large margin, TND is the one I just can’t bring myself to ever watch. DAD at least has a great first act (sans the title sequence), and after that the train wreck is still fun to watch. TND is just unbelievably average across the board. It’s not that anything in it is terrible (Except maybe Carver - I consider Evil Steve Jobs the worst villain in the franchise), but it just bores me to tears.
  21. Your (Postponed) Concerts in 2020

    Man, I'm really glad I got to do a bunch of gigs in January and February if it's gonna be a concert-less year from here on out
  22. ticketmaster

    Nope - they're apparently also not refunding for events that have had a makeup date scheduled/announced. The particular events I heard about this being an issue with is Dropkick Murphys' St. Patrick's Day run of shows in Boston - there's a Facebook group I'm a part of for another band which has a lot of crossover appeal there and there was a bunch of discussion about not being able to get refunds for the new dates in the event people can't make it, TM isn't giving them the option. The shows had new dates announced at the same time that these shows were cancelled (Most of them in September, one of them in November), so it's not like they were "date TBA". Again, I didn't go through any of this myself as the only one of those shows I had a ticket to I can make the new date, but that's what I've been hearing from folks who can't make the new date(s).
  23. ticketmaster

    Some people have reported that TM won't give them refunds for a rescheduled date either - only if the event is outright cancelled. I've also read that they apparently changed their terms of service to reflect this, but I haven't looked into it myself personally.
  24. The idea is, if you can figure out what frequency the IEM feed is being broadcast from the board to the monitors at, you can tap into that and record it. If you can tap into multiple IEM feeds, you can simulate a soundboard recording. IEM recordings don’t come from inside sources, these are just regular tapers doing these. They’re not “leaks”. This is a pretty crude IEM recording, sounds like it’s just a single IEM feed. Some of the IEM matrixes are pretty amazing, check out anything from XAVEL if you want to hear how IEM feeds can be manipulated.
