Iron Maiden is back out in the US this year with GHOST!!!!
that's one heckuva bill.
checking ticket prices now.
Anyone in the nyc/nj/pa area?
edit, sorry to the UK people who are stuck with shinedown. We totally got the better end of that stick.
also wow that was your 667th post..what timing.
I live in pa but was never much of a maiden fan. I do love a good concert though.
Maiden live was a revelation for me. I went to their Detroit show during the "No Prayer on the Road"
tour. I was aware of Maiden, but was firmly in my "love of thrash metal" phase. Anthrax was the opening act. I went for Anthrax. By the end of the show I realized that I was a dummy for not owning every Iron Maiden record I could get my hands on.
The same thing happened to me with Megadeth. I thought they were okay, but liked Metallica, Slayer, Testament, Anthrax etc...etc...far more. Then I went to the Clash of the Titans
tour. Megadeth played last that night. CRUSHED the performance of every other band. Everyone else sounded like they were going through the motions their PA was being filtered through wet sponges in comparison. Megadeth was tight, crystal clear, blisteringly fast and Mustaine's musicianship was ridiculous.
