I flew to Maryland this past weekend and drove to New Jersey with my brother to see Iron Maiden. Opening band was Bullet for My Valentine. The Maiden set, themed off of their latest A Matter of Life and Death album, rocked with a paratrooper, city ruins, rotating background images, life-size tank, and 10-foot walking soldier. We were about 5 people from the stage with V.I.P. GA Floor tickets. Janick Gers and Steve Harris lit up our side of the stage as Bruce Dickinson bounced from one end of the platform to the other, belting to a sold out crowd. The playlist included their new album and 4 or 5 songs from their older stuff. Awesome time, best described as: you had to be there.
