Nicko is ok. The whole band isCan’t disagree there. I think the band (and they think) have a few more years left in them though. Perhaps Nicko may rethink things after this tour. It seems like this will be the longest leg they’ve done in some time (I could be wrong, not back checking). Will see. I’m just thankful for whatever Maiden we have left.
in 2018, he nailed it as the opening song, that very high note(not the final scream, the second more high pitched part of the chorus) is just sonic dopamine. I very much regret that I will not be hearing that this yearAces high at the end of the show is just crazy
Having watched a full show it is odd seeing Bruce have next to no interaction with the audience, its like hes decided the only time hes going to use his voice is to sing and thats it, other than a brief speech before blood brothers. but gone are the screeaaam for meees and any other thing he usually says to get the crowd going.
very noticable during revelations where hes usually all over the crowd to get them going, this time choses to spend most the instrumental section standing on the drum riser etc
Worst I have heard Bruce by far. Still enjoyed the gig though, but his voice was completely fuckedAs far as I remember, Bruce was sick in Oslo in 2011. His voice did not recover and some of the UK shows at the end of the tour were pretty substandard.
I was there on the lawn in Bristow, VA. I thought Bruce had a wardrobe problem or something, but later found out he had an ear monitor malfunction.I still remember at my show on the second leg when he failed to come onstage during WED till they were in the second chorus. Instead of being disappointing it was a highlight of the concert experience. Shit happens and it makes for a nice little memory.
I was inside the amphitheater but in the last few rows of seats. When Bruce didn’t come in right away I started to wonder if they were make a change to the way they played the song, and then became worried that he had had a spill and the show was gonna be stopped cuz the frontman needed medical attention. And then at last there he jogged onto the stage, in the middle of the second chorus, only to start the first one and continue the second verse before realizing his error. “Fuck it, just watch the film,” he said, or something like that, and sauntered back down. Chad moment. So fucking funny. The single most memorable moment during the whole show (and there were many memorable moments).I was there on the lawn in Bristow, VA. I thought Bruce had a wardrobe problem or something, but later found out he had an ear monitor malfunction.
It was a cool experience that I will remember for a long time.
