    An album tour is going to be a completely new thing for me. I've never actually seen Maiden indoors. Depending where and when I might try to get to two shows (say Manchester and London?), do the standing thing for one and the seating for the other. I shall make sure my FC membership is topped up in anticipation of any presales.

    This is a link to my setlists.fm page that shows every song I have seen Maiden play and how many times I have seen them play that song: http://www.setlist.fm/songs/Terrell39?artist=3bd6803c

    Have my fingers crossed when the announce the US dates for BOS tour, Texas will be included. If not, I will be traveling! Not going to miss it (like I did on the AMOLAD tour....really regret missing that one)

    6 Times, should be at least 8 or 9, the regrets from those missed gigs are deep, man!

    1. x Factour 1996, Belfast. Half full leisure centre. My second ever gig, 12 yrs old. Loved it!

    2. Brave New World Tour 2001, RiR warm up in Shepards Bush Empire, LOndon. Amazing gig, I shed a tear when H ripped out the opening riff to Wicker Man. This was the culmination of 12 years of adoring Maiden, I feared I would never get to see this after Bruce left so this blew my mind. Small venue too. The intro CD for SOTC started skipping, Eddie got stuck between the amps and the stage wall and Bruce got stuck halfway up a wall during Hallowed, I think security had to help him down! Great night.

    3. Eddie Rips Up Europe, Dublin 2005. Straight off the plane and to the gig after a week in Amsterdam.

    4. AMOLAD, 2006. A guy got chucked out for holding up a banner sayin 'Trivium are Shite' when Trivium came on. Harsh. Sweet Savage supported, a mate of mine was drumming for them at the time and got to meet Maiden. He said Jan was the best craic. Always knew it...

    5. Knebworth, 2010. What a festival and Pendulum were a great warm up to Maiden.

    6. Final Frontier, Belfast, 2011. Buckfast in the car park before the show. Classy.


    1993 Real Live Tour, Belfast. I was 10, I wasn't allowed to go. My mother has never been forgiven.

    2003 DOD Dublin. Didn't even know it was on, I was a poor and drunken student at the time and I was having a lull in my Maideness, which is strange as I got the single and album the day they came out. Shame on me. I met a mate who was on his way to the train to go to the gig, I nearly punched myself in the face when he told me it was on.

    2008/9 Somewhere Back In Time. Out of the country and Maiden didn't play where I was. And only 1 UK gig. Fuck you Maiden!

    2013/4 Maiden England. Money issues. Terrible excuse. Once again, Shame on me.

    I have seen them 4 times in Sweden:
    2008: Ullevi Stadium Gothenburg
    2011: Ullevi Stadium, Gothenburg
    2013: Friends Arena, Stockholm
    2016: Ullevi Stadium, Gothenburg

    My favourite concert was propably the one in 2013. I liked that they closed the roof in the arena, which created a different atmosphere.

    The bootleg from that show is one of my favourites!

    Still just four. Download 2013, Sonisphere 2014, Download 2016, Oslo 2016. I hope to get Manchester at the very least in 2017
  14. jazz from hell

    jazz from hell Ancient Mariner

    hope I'm counting correctly. basically everytime they came round since the x-factour (didn't see them touring VXI though...)
    so that would be:
    x-factour, bnw, early days, dance of death, somewhere back in time, amolad, final frontier, maiden england '13 + ' 14, book of souls

    so that's 10.

    plus bruce solo with balls, skunkworks and chemical.
