    I really want to see this show at least once more. It's just so damn good. Will be interesting to see if they do a Maiden England, and tour it three years. This tour would be worth it.

    Nope, not a single tour is worth 3 years of touring.

    The field is a former concentration camp I think so they would need a lot of cleansing!

    The stadium in Santiago de Chile was used by Pinochet for his fascist repression.

    They also played in a venue that was built by the Nazis in Berlin.

    Probably why Steve likes it so much, so he can sniff the seat Thatcher sat on

    More than 55.000 tickets were sold for Chilean show so far (according to local distro).

    Is that good or a sign of Maiden's inexorable demise in Chile?

    The stadium is with 60.000 + capacity, so it's really astonishing.

    So we only get one chance - can we take it?
    And we only have one life - can’t exchange it
    Can we hold on to what we have - don’t replace it
    The age of Maiden is fading like an old dream...

    We can’t be filling up
    those stadiums no more
    The kids these days like EDM
    and think we are a bore
    We cannot monetize
    when they don’t give a toss
    We will be flipping burgers
    and it will be their loss

    I'd just like to point out that given how old the members of Iron Maiden are getting, it could indeed be said that the age of Maiden is slowly fading, even if they continue to sell out stadiums while they're still actively touring. Appreciate them while you still can, folks.

    I mean the European tour sold out in minutes pretty much, maybe it's just you yanks who don't care about Maiden anymore.

    I repeat...sellout or not...I have my seat.

    It's gonna be me & Iron F*cking Maiden in the same building at a ridiculously loud volume.

    The driving thump in my chest will be compliments of Nicko & Steve.

    The ringing in my ears for the days after the show will be compliments of Yanny, Dave & Adrian...metal's version of Cerebus.

    The hairs standing on end will be compliments the Human Air Raid siren, Bruce Dickinson, STILL killing it over 35 years down the road.

    In my younger days, those same raised hairs would be singed off with the pyro.

    I've been in the trenches, I had my elbows on the stage in Germany on the World Slavery Tour.

    I've been to the mountain top.

    Now, though, I'm at an age when, if I feel like sitting, I want to sit. So, I have 100 level seats. No singed hairs, but still plenty of heat.

    So, sour reflections be damned. It's me and Iron F*cking Maiden, one more time.
