The Future Past tour 2023

Yeah, the 2003 tour was kind of weird concerning the choices for venues in Germany. It even put them off playing Berlin for the next eight years (although Berlin crowds have always been famously difficult).
For all I know, Leipzig has changed significantly since 2003 though, so I guess it will be a more successful gig this time around.
Of course, the Dortmund gig would have the advantage of going to the only venue where not one but two official live videos were recorded. I was there for the 2006 gig, and I mean, it was okay. I just wouldn't recommend going to the Ruhr area to a person who's going to fly to Germany specifically for this gig if there are nicer options available.
Was there too for the 2006 gig :cheers: Well, just my personal opinion: I wouldn't advise going to Leipzig. I think the place is ugly as fuck, but the Ruhr area has its very special charme. It only should be made clear to anybody going there not to expect a BEAUTIFUL place. But it's a COOL place. And there's plenty of interesting places more or less around the corner. Cologne isn't far, Frankfurt neither, plus many more intersting things to do.

Got two tickets for the Dortmund show! Eventim is offering tickets two days early, probably some kind of exclusivity deal. Funnily enough, I was born and raised in Dortmund, lived most of my life there, but all Maiden shows I've seen where in neighboring cities. Now that I moved to Essen I'll see them in Dortmund lol

207 Euros ist Kind of steep, but worth given its mY favorite record of all time

I wouldn't want to see this show in an open-air venue. The SIT songs need that dark atmosphere that an arena offers. Certainly, if they open with CSIT or do ATG, a dark setting will set the tone. My beef with Maiden England was the first 2 shows I saw of the tour were outside venues. I went back in 2013 hoping Infinite Dreams would be added by then but no indoor venues were near me that tour :(

I never want to see any concert of a band i am really into see open air. Lightshow sucks, sound sucks, maybe weather as well.
LOTB Hannover 2018 was okay, but still.

My experience is a little bit different. I want to experience Maiden ONLY indoors. They are better suited for theater aspect of the show. Darkness, aura of the indoor arena, good visibility etc. Metallica is a different kind of a beast. I watched them two times on Death Magnetic arena tour - had a great time. One time open air in Tallinn, when they played Master of Puppets in full, and one time in Riga stadium. I had equally great time watching them in open air. They pull different strings of your soul. Music of theirs is better suited for big stadiums. Rhythm and crushing riffs. Hypnotizing power, crushing all that cower...

I saw Maiden in Poland, on their legendary Somewhere Back in Time World tour (2008y.) It was a stadium show. I was very far from the stage. I liked the show very much, it was my first Maiden experience. Nonetheless, I had a feeling, that as a stadium experience it was not a 10/10. Wish i had seen them indoors. Also, I have seen Maiden on their Book Of Souls World tour, and three times on LOTB tours - all those shows were indoors. Had a great time. I had greatest time on TBOS tour for some reason. Best setlist, perhaps.
