Bruce sounds absolutely amazing on these live videos from Rio. Watched a few clips on youtube while enjoying my morning coffee. Amazing to hear how good he sounds. This has to be one of the best performances he has had the last five years!

I won FTTB! I hope it works out... Is it necessary to bring a guest? The person I would invite won't be able to arrive on time...

I love how they're explicitly saying there's going to be another album this early.

I remember when TFF came out the same question was asked and the answer was always some variation of "we'll see what happens".

Edit: BTW I'm still convinced that Steve is going to attempt to one up Empire of the Clouds on the next album. Cool interview.

I have a question for you guys with more concert experience: In Vegas, I was on the floor on Janick's side about 20 or so rows from the stage and I couldn't help but feel that I was not hearing all the guitars (definitely some of the solos). I'll see them in LA next time and my question is that where do you think is the best place on the floor in terms of sound? Should I go further back or just make sure I'm in the middle? What about the view? I love to be as close to the stage as possible, but I'm worried that my shorter friend who's seeing Maiden for the first time won't be able to see anything.

The best place to stand at any show is right in line with the sound booth, generally straight back from center stage. Unfortunately at arena shows, that means you're in the back of the floor or the far rear seats.

I was center bowl about 20 rows from the floor on Dave's side and I heard the guitars fine, with the exception of a couple moments where the sound guy missed his cue to boost the solo. Overall, Bruce's voice was louder than most things and I wish the bass was louder.

A video went up on Facebook a little while ago of all the people who turned up to see the plane land. There was quite a crowd.

Guys it was insane at the airport today! I won't post the photos I took, because my mobile is crap, but take a look at this...

There were people everywhere, inside and outside around the airport. People actually parked in the middle of an avenue to see EFO! As you can see here:

Awesome congrats! Adrian looks very happy and relaxed in the photos. I've met the guys before and they were all very cool and natural.

It is truly a great time to be a Maiden fan :)
