Top 10 Songs You'd Like to See Iron Maiden Perform on Their Book of Souls 2017 Tour

SuperSonic17
Iron Maiden played a great tour in 2016, and this year it would be fair to assume they'd play the same setlist. But suppose they were to swap around a couple of songs which ones should they bring back and which ones should they keep?

This list will be ranked on the basis of how much do you want it heard, how plausible would it be, whether or not they played it last time, which ones you don't want to see go, etc.

Feel free to add your wanted songs below.

The Top Ten

1 Rime of the Ancient Mariner

A long shot, but not impossible. I'd hate to see what songs they'd have to kick off to squeeze this one in, but it'd probably be worth it with Bruce's way of telling a story through song and that ominous middle section. - SuperSonic17

2 Aces High

More likely to return. It's not too long a track, it's a catchy shredder and a firm fan favourite. - SuperSonic17

3 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

Last time they didn't play anything from their Seventh Son album. It would be nice to hear the title track again. - SuperSonic17

4 Run to the Hills

A once common live song, but one that pretty much everyone would be familiar with. I personally would swap it with Wasted Years as I feel this song works better as a show closer. - SuperSonic17

5 Ghost of the Navigator

Last time I saw them they played Blood Brothers, so it would also be good to hear this kickass song. - SuperSonic17

6 22 Acacia Avenue

Last tour they played Children of the Damned, and the tour before that they played The Prisoner, so it would only make sense they play this one as a way of cycling through songs on The Number of the Beast album. - SuperSonic17

7 Flash of the Blade

Has never been played live before, but there's always a first time for everything. This one wouldn't eat up too much of a set and I'm sure the band have played tougher songs. It could happen. - SuperSonic17

8 The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg

Iron Maiden's newer work often gets forgotten. Whilst I would like mostly classic Maiden a couple of 2000s songs wouldn't go amiss either, particularly this one from A Matter of Life and Death. - SuperSonic17

9 Tears of a Clown

One of the Book of Souls songs I hope they keep, as it's a tribute to the late Robin Williams. Keep playing this song to honour a man who brought a smile to so many faces. - SuperSonic17

10 Where Eagles Dare

The Contenders

11 Hallowed Be Thy Name

Come on, do I even need to say why? It's Hallowed Be Thy Name, of course I'd want them to keep this one. - SuperSonic17

12 Alexander the Great (356-323 B.C.)
13 Infinite Dreams

They ignored this gem on the Maiden England tour. Whilst Seventh Son is my favourite, I was lucky enough to see that back in 2013.
This would be my ideal, impossible to play set:

1. If Eternity Should Fail
2. Speed of Light
3. Murders in the Rue Morgue
4. 2 Minutes to Midnight
5. Children of the Damned
6. The Trooper
7. The Red and the Black
8. Afraid to Shoot Strangers
9. Phantom of the Opera
10. Where Eagles Dare
11. Rime of the Ancient Mariner
12. The Book of Souls
13. Infinite Dreams
14. Stranger in a Strange Land
15. Fear of the Dark
16. Iron Maiden

Encore:
17. Empire of the Clouds
18. The Number of the Beast
19. Hallowed Be Thy Name
20. Run to the Hills - IronSabbathPriest

14 Empire of the Clouds
15 The Trooper
