On this day exactly fifteen years ago Iron Maiden played their first European show with the new six piece line-up we know today.
09.09.1999 Iron Maiden hit Paris and Bercy in front of a capacity crowd with a stunning setlist that amped up expectations for what was in the cards for the reunited band. But no one could foresee what we know now. 15 years later Iron Maiden has become one of the biggest rock acts in the world, playing to audiences exceeding the glory of their heydays.
The Paris setlist was as follows (see the full show in the clip below):
2 Minutes to Midnight
Man on the Edge
Phantom of the Opera
The Evil That Men Do
Fear of the Dark
The Number of the Beast
Hallowed Be Thy Name
Run to the Hills
