When I read this album's title, it did come across my mind that it could be the band's last. However, I'm not too worried. They, as far as my knowledge goes, haven't announced this as their final album. Also, if/when they do decide to call it quits, then they will have left a pretty good impression behind for future generations to study and appreciate. They have been around since 1975.

Dude...everyone is. But you can't expect them to just play their pre-1990 stuff at every gig, it would be an insult to them as artists and to their newer albums, which are perfectly good in their own right. If you didn't see them on the "Somewhere Back in Time" tour then you've missed your chance to just see the older stuff. Also I think the fact that it's "The Final Frontier World Tour" is a bit of a giveaway

Damn, the first association when I read the title "the Final Frontier" was "the last album". I hope Im wrong though.


A quote from a one year old interview on http://www.metalhammer.co.uk/news/sooner-than-expected-iron-maiden-guitarist-talks-about-new-album/:

Quote:

MH: We've noticed one thing that was different from 12 months ago, when we interviewed Steve, he said "we've always said 'we're only going to do 15 albums, we're coming up to it, there's going to be an ending point.'" Is everyone seeing things a little differently now?
Adrian: "Look, we write music, we're musicians, we'll carry on. The great thing is that there's clearly a huge audience out there waiting to hear what we're going to do right now ; and in the real world that's not a very common situation so you have to appreciate it. It's not always easy to make an album, you've got six guys with their own ideas and focusing it into one outcome is quite difficult."


Hope this means it's not their last...

Jun. 30 - Winnipeg, MB - MTS Center (no Dream Theater)

I hate living in Winnipeg...Fuck the extreme Weather. (Winter's to cold, summer's to hot.)

I'd like to see Dream Theatre aswell but don't blame them for not wanting to come.
