    Also I pay no mind to Bruce's voice cracking or anything like that. The live performance of the band overcomes and speaks for itself. However I still can't get over Gers terrible solo in Hallowed. Give that back to Adrian where belongs.

    This was a huge thing and something I talked about with almost everybody at the show. The lack of a quality decent name metal opener. They have done this so many times. Starting in 87 having Ace Frehley not show in Daytona (go figure) and getting a local band instead.

    It's a pretty tangible difference having 15k in a tight shed like that vs 12k in a modern arena. I was moved.

    The Official Book of Souls Tour 2017 Thread (Warning: Spoilers Within)

    Kinda bummed about ticket prices this year. Maiden used to at least go a little easier than most. Tickets for the floor in Tampa were $20 per ticket higher than Ft Lauderdale last year. From $95 all in to $118.

    So does anyone know how the paperless entry works?

    BB&T problems were compounded by torrential sideways rain that started right at 8pm with thousands still outside waiting in line to get in. When my sons and I crested the stairs from the street to the arena entrance level we heard the thousands of people chanting BullShit! Bullshit! We took...

    The Official Book of Souls Tour 2016 Thread (Warning: Spoilers within!)

    I got serious goosebumps during that intro with Bruce hovering over that boiling cauldron singing the intro- it was a magical moment to start that show. I was happy with the setlist, I think Tears of a Clown was the one clunker- I just dont like that song and adds an extra ballad type song...

    Any televised show(s) from the first leg of TFF tour?

    The lighting and banners from that tour were awesome. We drove up from FLA to catch the show in DC. My signature photo is a cell phone shot of those lights from that tour in DC. I thought it was so cool the way the rigs look like lit up stealth bombers or space ships coming in for a landing.

    Maiden's Atlanta Crowd

    Bruce announced the crowd at 14,000 for Atlanta, it was impressive, looked packed. Very animated crowd, hot as hell in there, drove up from St Pete and it was well worth it.
