@Cornfed Hick For the trivia nerds among us: when was the last time, or is this a first? How do we define IN LA?FINALLY!! Maiden is playing an outdoor show that is actually IN Los Angeles, as opposed to an hour or two away in Irvine or Devore. I plan to go to that one, for sure. Not sure about others. Have always wanted to visit Montreal, and a meetup for the show would be a good excuse, but I think my wife may have already made other summer plans for the family. (How dare she.)
Okay, I just checked. Maiden's 2019 gig in Los Angeles is the 2nd ever Maiden concert in Los Angeles that is in Los Angeles and that is outdoor.
That was the infamous gig (on the day) where Dave Murray broke his finger, which resulted in the cancellation of the following three concerts. I remember that well. Baeleron, the founder of The Iron Maiden Commentary, was gutted about that.
That was twenty years before (the next tour), on The Ed Hunter Tour. The Greek Theater, 30 July 1999.
