IRON MAIDEN: Fan-Filmed Footage Of Entire Stockholm Concert

British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN performed in front of a sellout crowd of 55,000 at the new national stadium in Stockholm, Sweden — Friends Arena — on July 13. The venue has a roof which meant that for the first time ever in Sweden, IRON MAIDEN fans were able to enjoy the full glory of the entire "Maiden England" show in a dark stadium.

The band's setlist was as follows:

01. Moonchild
02. Can I Play With Madness
03. The Prisoner
04. 2 Minutes To Midnight
05. Afraid To Shoot Strangers
06. The Trooper
07. The Number Of The Beast
08. Phantom Of The Opera
09. Run To The Hills
10. Wasted Years
11. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
12. The Clairvoyant
13. Fear Of The Dark
14. Iron Maiden

Encore:

15. Aces High
16. The Evil That Men Do
17. Running Free

Fan-filmed video footage of the entire concert can be seen below.

A review of the show at MaidenRevelations.com reads in part: "The great Doug Hall is no longer in charge of MAIDEN's front-of-house, and there has been widespread criticism of below-par sound quality throughout the tour."

It continues: "The sound where I stood was not critically bad, but some issues are obvious. The general sound level seems a little low for such a huge arena, and the guitars are sorely missing in the mix, with even the solos sometimes being hard to discern. Nicko's [McBrain] drums are booming and present throughout, but Steve's [Harris] bass (of all things) go missing with regularity. There's something weird about hearing the intro to 'The Clairvoyant' without actually feeling the bass in your gut…

"Yes, this is an issue. There is no reason why the best band in the world should not have the best sound in the world. It's been an ongoing complaint since the first gig of 2012, and over a year later I have to agree — the sound lets the band down, and is also a lot less than the fans deserve."
