Dates to Remember in 2006, according to Bruce2006 Iron Maiden dates to remember.
As previously reported on Maidenfans.com, in his interview for Brazilian magazine Roadiecrew, Bruce Dickinson gave the following dates to remember.
In March, Iron Maiden will start recording the new studio album.
In May, Bruce will release his double solo DVD.
During the summer, there’s a possibility of festival dates before the release of the album.
October might be the month for the release of the new studio album and the start of the album tour.
In 2007, Iron Maiden may return to Brazil and South America.
The "Possible summer festival dates" will feature songs from the 1984 to 1988 era?
I thought they wouldn't tour in the summer.
tour in summer?
I think it was Bruce solo who wanted to do some Festival gigs this year, wasn't it?
I understood the article as, Iron Maiden would do a few large festivals in the summer, before the autumn release of their new album and the start of their actual tour.
Well, all I know ist that two festivals in Germany (Wacken and BYH) are in talks with Bruce.
Good God, no new album until October. I only knew they're recording in March, but not the planned month for release. DoD feels like an eternity away already. Hopefully it will be worth the wait :).
So, after all, is the next early days tour planned for sometime in 2007?
This new album will be flippin' hard-pushed to beat DOD. If this new record turns out to be better than 2003's record then I will probably end up jumping around my room at 3.00 in the morning pretending to be Bruce (that's what I was doing at 3 in the morning a few nights ago, only that time I was pretending to be Meatloaf, before smacking my head on a shelf and falling in to my bed with a dull thud). Mind you, whether it's better than DOD or not, I have every faith in Maiden and am sure it will be way better than anything else that comes out that week. If Maiden do go on a small tour in th Summer playing songs from 1984-1988, I hope they play The Dualists, Back In The Village, Sea Of Madness, Moonchild and especially Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner (I absolutely love this song and it could be the best one on Somewhere...). My reason for these songs being chosen by me is because, although they're not necessarily as popular as other songs on the albums, they are rarely (if ever) played live and no doubt Maiden will record another live album on this tour, so when it comes out it will be nice to have a very different setlist than usual. I know they probably wouldn't get away with not playing RTTH, NOTB, Iron Maiden and Hallowed..., but even with these songs being permanently on the setlist, there's still at least a good eleven or twelve tracks to select on the setlist. In conclusion, Maiden, if you do by any chance read this, on the next tour, play the essentials by all means (there's no doubt that they are brilliant but when you've heard them so many times they can get a bit monotonous), but then play some "forgotten" classics that will surprise the croud, for instance Drifter, Burning Ambition (even if it was a B-side), Invaders, Don't Look To The Eyes Of A Stranger (I'm dumb-struck that isn't a live favourite, even if it is a bit repetitive) and Montsegur (that's bound to make an impression live). Happy new year to all Maiden Fans and keepn on rollin'! From Nicko JR (previously known as Beast On The Drums).
Does any one know if the second part of "The History of" is due?
Are you going to post the festivals that he's playing at when they're confirmed or whatever. I'm buying my tickets to t in the park again this year and i think that Iron Maiden or even Bruce alone would be the only thing that could top last year!
I heard the new album will follow a concept.
does anyone know what the new album will be called and what sort of songs will be on it ?
well im only 14 n havent goten a chance to c iron maiden, im so excited for this!
it thik it would be cool if the album was a story after 7th son of a 7th son.
UP THE IRONS!
the picture of Bruce on the front page reminds me of the "Balls to Picasso"-album.
Yeah, it would be cool if the next album was a concept album. But they shouldn't force them to write a concept album. If so, then it should all come naturally. Let's wait and bleed ah see, sorry :-)
Hope they come at least somewhere NEAR Scotland if not in, hopefully Dance of Death will be played, out of all their live albums they haven't played this song at all. Go Maiden!
