    I've never seen them live but I would love it. They are finally coming to Australia too! The last time they came was 15 years ago. That was when they released Number of the Beast and my dad saw them live in a small hall of about 100 people. I'm curious to know what their tracklisting will be. On their website there's a paragraph quoting their manager saying this:

    "Following Bruce's various hints from on stage this last year about our plans for 2008 ("We are taking some time off to build some pyramids!"), fans have been pestering me for details of the tour and especially asking which songs from that era will be played. That may be as easy as a run in the hills but we will keep our aces close to our chest on this issue. I know it would only take a couple of minutes but at this stage of planning, I'd have to be clairvoyant to know what they will do. I'm sure though it will be no revelation for you that we intend to make up for those wasted years by visiting a large number of hallowed metal venues around the world. Historically 'Powerslave' was an incredibly important album for the band and it would be madness if we didn't give the fans a taste of the full on Iron Maiden show from that time. With our jumbo there really is no rime nor reason why the band cannot now visit fans almost everywhere as many have been real troopers to have waited this long. Heaven only knows what the band will choose but if l could and did tell you now l would have to shoot you! You'll all have to be patient and see. But it will be spectacular. No fear!!"

    From that I've spotted these song titles:

    Run to the Hills
    Aces High
    2 Minutes to Midnight
    The Clairvoyant
    Wasted Years
    Hallowed Be Thy Name
    Can I Play With Madness
    The Trooper
    Heaven Can Wait
    Revelations
    Rime Of The Ancient Mariner
    Afraid To Shoot Strangers
    Fear Of The Dark
    Number of the Beast

    Am I missing any? Who's gonna see them? I know I am :p

    The prices for their concerts in Australia are listed on Ticketek now. $150 for Gold and $100 for silver. What do you guys think the difference is between the 2? Just seating arrangements or something?
