    We met some guys in Vegas who were in the 150+ range. Pretty legit hardcore! I don't know if I could do that. I love Iron Maiden, I really and truly do - but I love lots of other things.

    You didn't meet Luciano by any chance, did you? (Brazilian guy with a beard). He's going to all of the UK shows. He posted a pic of himself in Aberdeen with two policemen. Couldn't quite tell if it was a police selfie or he was actually in trouble!

    Those guys were nuts. One of them said he times his business travel around Maiden tours, so his company pays for most of the flights/hotels. That's genius for 2-3 shows, but a bit wacky to attend every show on an entire tour. If the setlist changed every night, it would make more sense. But if I had to see exactly the same show more than a couple of times, I'd get bored.

    Think of all the other bands & gigs he could have been to.

    There was the European guy - I want to say Portuguese - he said he was over three hundred, but had lost count. Fucking amazing, and at the same time...not my thing at all.

    There were some guys on the floor in Denver who were traveling around and had seen every TBOS show so far. Wonder if it was the same people you ran into.

    matic22 H is shorter for God.

    I'm baffeled how badly covered (Youtube-wise) the Arbedeen gig is. I only found some Troopers, FOTD and COTD.

    Sounds like everyone was having a big mad party and not recording stuff on their phones

    Each to their own, I guess.

    I would personally not get bored, but would not do a crazy number of gigs. I go to between 3 and 5 gigs per tour (I stared doing several gigs per tour with AMOLAD), planning holidays around them at times and that is good enough for me.

    I'll get behind you at some point and rip you off the barrier and steal your spot.
