Besides, it's not the stage design and production that's important. It's actually seeing Maiden live in concert, performing their songs before your very eyes and they amazing energy the band themselves put into the show. I used to thing that a fancy production was important for a good show, but after seeing a number of amazing performances at small clubs, I realize that a fancy production isn't at all important. Hell, if Maiden decided to drop Eddie, that wouldn't even bother me. He's just a nice bonus, but isn't necessary for a great show. Sure, it would be pretty amazing if my dream came true of Maiden doing EOTC and having an actual model of an R101 with Eddie flying it and having it crash and explode on stage, but again, something like that isn't absolutely necessary. And I know it won't happen and could care less. But like I said, it's really the actual performance that counts and you can always count on getting a super great one from Maiden!
Also, since they skipped filming a show for a DVD on the Maiden England tour, you can bet we'll be getting one this time around. And hopefully they do a show that has a live webcast again.
