PostSubject: Iron Maiden tour   Mon Oct 12, 2015 7:58 am

Because I was ticked when I learned that I missed out on Rush's 40th Ann tour (and supposedly their last), when I heard IM was going to have some US dates (I think from Facebook newsfeed of all places) I decided I'd take my best friend since we don't get to hang out very often. This is significant for a few reasons:
1. I'm pretty sure this will be the first secular show I've seen since Rush in 97.
2. IM is what I indoctrinated him with back in college. Ironically, he had just posted to FB the morning before I bought tickets, "How did this Carpenters fan become a metalhead in college? I still can't figure it out 30 years hence" to which I responded, "Bad influences and peer pressure." A few hours later I added, "Speaking of which, make sure you get off early Apr 6 because that bad influence is taking you to see Iron Maiden." He was floored.
3. Once I thought back, I realized IM was one of several of my (former) favorite bands that I have never seen in concert.

Of course, I'm at a severe disadvantage since I've not kept up with any secular music for a LONG time so I won't know anything they play after the early 90s, but I expect I'll have a decent time despite the nosebleed seats. I really hope they don't have some lame opener - better yet, no opener at all would be great.

Hope you're not in for a disappointment but traditionally early in the tour Maiden s known for playing only new songs with maybe 3-4 classics. So you may see the new album in its entirety.

Telling us he's going to a concert is hardly tour promotion.

SINNER!!!  For your insolence, you must say 20 "hail Mary's" (your wife will appreciate this) and put $20 in the Poor Box.  My wallet is known as the Poor Box.

lol!

I've bought the downloads to some old and new Def Leppard albums.  We will burn together.

Wouldn't have considered it promotion, but I knew we have some IM fans here and we have discussed them (and other major secular acts) before in this forum. Would you prefer I move it to Warped Drive?

Sigh...  They're not coming anywhere near me and tickets are soooooo expensive...  Sad  I may try to find a way nonetheless.
