|That remark about the audience was tongue in cheek anyway. I'm not a fan of Nostrdamus -so I obviously wouldn't wanna here it all live.|
AMOLAD in my opinion one of Maiden's best ever releases, but there is no way I'm forcing myself to like it. However, I still think they shouldn't have played it all during that tour.
With any new album, I think half a dozen at the most and then a back catalogue selecttion

|"Give me something B-side any day..." LOL|
Cheers to that!
Agree with all you say there, John.
Sad to say, the scene here in Canada is pretty much the same -- except we have better wannabe singers! lol...
One thing about "Nostradamus" that I think is a credit to the integrity & honesty of Judas Priest, is this...
I think "Nostradamus" was created out of pure love (and talent) and their belief in something they wanted to do.
It was not written for the love of money. There is nothing commercial about it. In essence, they didn't sell-out. That's what makes it beautiful.

|I think it would make sense to play at least 8-10 songs from Nostradamus. Maybe the first part of the show all Nostradamus, then the classics. They have to promote the new cd some more, i only got to hear 2 songs on this tour? And one of them was Dawn of Creation, 2:31 long? No Death due to noise curfew! And you gotta play the classics for those who only whish to hear them? Never understood that, if your a BIG fan of the bands music, you should like most of the music they have created. Give me something B-side any day over Living After Midnight anyday. But that's me, i can live with that. Playing the Nostrdamus cd in it's entirety without any classics will bomb due to tickets not being sold. I'm speaking for the States here in America. There just isn't enough of us die hard fans to sellout to many venues here in the States. Don't believe me? When's the last time you saw Dio, Whitesnake, Accept ect., they refuse to tour here in the States. Maybe elsewhere, but this country is in love with reality T.V. music wannabe singers? But if they should tour doing the whole cd, i'll be there. There are some really good powerful songs on Nostradamus, and some so,so ones. But then again i thought that of a cd called Sad Wings of Destiny, now one of my favs.? Just my 2-cents.|

I understand what you are saying.
Maybe they could do something like 'an evening with Roger Waters - Dark Side of the Moon' and do one half of the show with Nostradamus, and the other half with classics. Either way, it would be cool to see them play with a bit of an orchestra -- just for something different, and to push the boundaries a bit more than they already do.
Just a thought....

|While I would like to hear Nostradamus all the way thru live. Don`t know if it would make for a complete tour. Just the largest markets would fit for that. Then everyone attending can travel to make it more of an event.|

|I'm with you loripip, I will catch them when they come around playing "Mary Had A Little Lamb" if that's what they decide (lol). |
I didn't see them hardly at all from the time Halford left 'til AOR, and only God knows when they'll hang up their instruments (hopefully never!!!), so I will see them WHENEVER playing WHATEVER they want WHENEVER they want!!!

|No i wouldn't because they have other great songs to play from years gone by. And also i think it is not that good.|
|[hellrider 31038] Friday, August 22, 2008 11:29:12 PM|| |
|personally i would much perfer they just take a break and record a new album.|
|[alecs56] Thursday, August 21, 2008 6:29:39 PM|| |
I agree 100% with Where Am I
|[crypticangle] Thursday, August 21, 2008 5:21:23 PM|| |
|I'll take what I can get from them at this point --I was lucky enough to see them live 2 times within 10 days & Lord knows when I'll see them again.|

I don't know if playing the whole Nostradamus is the right thing to do either, but it's up to them. I think it's Judas Priest who see how many people show up at their shows every time they play, so they would know better than me or any other member of this minority that roams the boards if playing Nostradamus is the right thing to do.
Perhaps a one time play in the UK would be sufficient? The home crowd is always harder to please but can you imagine how much a recording of such a rare event would go for on Ebay?Think about it.
Also, if Maiden's AMOLAD is their best album, playing it is not a mistake. I feel you are forcing yourself to like AMOLAD. Perhaps analyzing Iron Maiden is best left for the Iron Maiden website. I've been listening to Priest and Maiden for over 2 decades and apart from being 2 english bands, I fail to see why one has to be compared against the other continuously.
As for Priest, Nostradamus is a tough subject to write songs about without sounding tacky and Priest pulled it off quite nicely. Who's to say what you should like and what you shouldn't like, metalmaz? And the same goes: who's to say the audience would actually like it played live and NOT walk out or go to sleep.

|So how would you feel about Priest playing the whole of Nostradamus lve?|
I think it would be a massive mistake. I love Priest, but I really don't like Nostradamus and it's not for want of trying.
Let's face it the Priest forum only makes up a very small precentage of the audience at gigs. And quite honestly many non forum members would walk out or go to sleep
Iron Maiden played the whole of A Matter Of Life And Death when they toured to promote that album. In my opinion it was a big mistake (and I think A Matter Of Life And Death is one of Maiden's best ever albums). And the ironic thing is Halford got the arse with Iron Maiden and said Priest had planned to do a concept album and play the whole of it on tour.
