From Nicko's diary:

Yes weíre on our way to Holland this afternoon with one blazing 'kin marvellous gig under the Maidenís belt. I kid you not when I say, 'kin marvellous, we had such a good time. We hit the stage at 9:30 last night and you know those nerves that I was talking about, well there were plenty of Ďem floating around back stage, but as soon as we started the gig you would never have guessed it from the way we venomously blasted into The Wicker Man to open the set.

After the first song everything calmed down into a fantastic groove. Bruce was belting out the songs like it was his first gig and the rest of us were just as wild to be up there with him. We got off stage at 11:30 and did a runner back to the old hotel. The reason we do that is, if we decided to stay after the show it would more than likely take a 'kin long time to get out or off site, as being a festival thereís usually loads of you 'kin loonies trying to do the same.

Anyway weíre on our way to Nijmegen on the old Bruce goose. Itís nearly 3 o'clock and it should take us about one hour and a quarter to Rotterdam then we have a one and a half hour drive to the venue. All in all it was a 'kin brilliant first night of our Brave New World tour. Iím off now so until the next instalment boys and girls...

From Johnny B's diary:

I arrived with the band to the Dynamo festival site. It was massive and the crowd were already bouncing about enjoying the groups on that afternoon. Then when KORN came on the clouds opened. Boy did it rain. The poor crowd got soaked.

I met up with me old mucker John McMurtie who was the top Nikon Guy who showed Harry and myself how to use the new Nikon D1. He was already soaked from a day down the pit... which I might add, was 25 foot high and gave the photographers no chance.

I went and had a recce with him as to the best place to shoot the maiden set. As Maiden could not put up much of their stage show because of the very low light gantry and the tiny stage we decided that we would shoot the first 5 songs from the light and sound desk. This proved to be a 'Top' move as the heavens opened and the band were met for the first song with thunder and lightning. Also all the photographers, their helpers, liggers and Uncle Tom Cobbly and all were in the pit for the first three songs. Top Rock Photo guru Ross 'Zeppelin' Halfin was also shooting the whole show so he stayed clear of the pit for the first 3 as well.

As you can see from the first videos on the web, we shot from the front of the stage but we were quite a distance. So I packed all my cack up and traipsed though the thousands of soaked fans back towards the stage.

At this point I want to congratulate every single fricking one of you who stayed that night to watch Maiden. You were fantastic. Soaked to the skin but still signing and jumping about in the mud and rain. I don't think you will EVER realise how much the band appreciated that. They will be talking about the Dynamo crowd for years to come.

This is one of the poorer Metal 2000 bootlegs. The sound is very distant and there is some bad distortion at some points. Especially during the beginning of The Clansman it's really loud. This one is just another dust collector. (Blake)

From Nicko's diary:

Well boys and girls we had a Kin absolute blast last night, the gig was fantastic, it must have been over a hundred degrees in the gig and absolutely no air, I can tell you it was Kin hot on stage but we had a great time although it got a little hard going at times.

This is a bit of a laugh right, we're on the way to the gig, Dave, Jan, H Johnny B and myself when we pulled up at a set of traffic lights just yards from the gig right, where a couple of fans begin to unroll this Kin banner right, and on it in big F off letters are the words 'Happy Birthday Nicko' so Dave and the guys are like, 'Is it your birthday today then' and they all got excited for me and I'm trying to hide the fact that I didn't want to let anyone know it was, so I eventually give in, Well I had to really didn't I boys and girls? So the cat's out of the bag right. Oh you might be wondering why I didn't want anybody to know it was my birthday, it's because in Maiden there's this like tradition right, where as when it's someone's birthday they are usually the recipient of a severe doing usually with plates full of shaving cream or what ever is at hand, well you can imagine what happened can't you, yes I got a doing, a bloody good one it was as well.

Picture this, we're half way through Sanctuary right, when at the and of the third chorus I stand up behind the kit, not realising Bruce has a cream pie concealed on his person somehow and he proceeds to lob said pie straight into me kisser, fantastic shot but one that leaves me with cream all over me face and all over me tubs. Oh yeah, in the middle bit of Sanctuary Bruce and the guys with thirteen thousand fans sang Happy Birthday to me, it was truly a fantastic feeling boys and girls, I can assure you. So there we are on stage at the end of a blazing show me with kin cream all over me right, I'm thinking that's it right, wrong, as I'm taking a bow a certain security chap whom shall remain nameless [Wally 'it wasn't me guv honest' Grove actually] proceeds to give me, from behind a might add, a double pie doing. Not only did he get me good he rubbed the stuff right into me ear holes I couldn't hear a thing. Then Bruce and the guys came on stage with some champagne and we had a toast to the day and the audience right, then just as H lifts his glass with me he lets go with his, you guessed it, yes, cream pie right in me kisser again. I can honestly tell you it was a most severe doing one that I'll never forget.

A Kin magic gig and an altogether kin great birthday. I hasten to add that after the show the champers flowed and a couple of bottles of lovely, Grand Vin Leoville Las Casses were delivered back at the hotel. We had a great time.

From Nicko's diary:

When we arrived at the gig after a journey of about twenty minuets it was still chucking it down. The site was water logged, the lighting desk had got water in it and was being dried out and there was a big concern whether we would be able to do the show. So Steve 'Are you sure' Harris, Steve 'Dazed and Confused' Cox [he's our tour manager] and myself went on a recce and decided that if we had to we would do the show without the lights. The crew were amazing they actually got all the bits needed to work. You know we're really fortunate to have such a great crew they really work there butts off to get the show up and running even in adverse conditions I really appreciate them all [Thanks guys and girls]

So we took to the stage a little bit later than planned but not before Dirty Deeds smacked the Billies right between the lug holes They're a fantastic band boys and girls if you get the chance to see em don't miss them please. So we got on and had a great gig, It was the best gig playing wise so far, we were all in the bollock tight zone, everything swung like Pam Andersons tits on a bouncy castle. After the gig we did a runner back to the airport at SLIAAC and got ready for the flight into Budapest. It took a little over forty minutes to get there. We got to the hotel at a little after one thirty in the morning. After we checked in we met in the bar for a nightcap and then to bed.
From Johnny B's diary:

The crowd were insane. They stood in the rain for two hours singing their hearts out. A couple of guys climbed the lampposts that leaned over the turnstiles and baited the military police. One guy even stripped right to the buff (in the pouring rain) and tied a union jack around his waist as he sung 'Ion Mayden' at the top of his voice. Last I saw him was two hours later in the crowd still dressed only in a union jack kilt.

I felt sorry for the crowd as half an hour later the rain stopped. Now the crowd were literally steaming as the temperature rose and they started to dry out.

The gig was fantastic. I sometimes have a problem shooting some of the gig, as the 'pit' (the area between the stage and the crowd) is 12 foot below the stage. Then I have to go and shoot on stage great fun but you get all the shots from the back. This stage was high. The crowd were in what can only be described as a roman amphitheatre. It was a semi circle shape and got higher as the further back you went. Standing right up the back was looking down into a scene from Gladiator. The crowd were fantastic. I keep going on about it but they were really up for it. They sung along to the songs even though the album has only been out just over a week. They watched attentively to Bruce's every move.

We could not have the whole show as the weather just didn't allow it and the stage was just not big enough for all the show. Shame, as I am sure they would have loved parts of the real theatre of this new show.

From Johnny B's diary:

An amazing few days started in St Etienne. I must congratulate the band and the fans. The promoter failed to provide any form of air conditioning or allow the doors of the venue to be kept open and the result was the hottest most uncomfortable gig I have EVER attended. The venue was absolutely packed to the rafters and the heat in the venue just rose4 and rose until a temperature of 35 degrees was recorded on stage. The band were still rushing around the stage in their normal excited state and therefore found themselves close to fainting.

I had technical troubles as the lenses on the cameras were continually fogging up with condensation. The DV camera turned itself off three times due to condensation warnings. We were literally left gasping for breath in the pit. The crowd just kept going. The security guys were great as the continually handed out water to the fans. The got through over 120 x 2 litre bottles of water. The gig was fantastic but I had to stop filming as the camera and the band just could not hack the heat.

The bands were literally close to collapse when they came off the stage. The exhaustion on their face was quite apparent.
From Nicko's diary:

On the thirteenth we played to a sold out show in St Etienne in France. The room was supposed to hold fivethousand billies but I reckon there were at least six thousand plus in there. I'm not kidding my lovely's it was 'kin seriously 'Kin hot in this place, you could really cook an egg or two on the 'Kin floor of the stage it was that hot. So we got to show time and it was steaming now, 'The Almighty' opened up for us and they blew the house down, it was a real pleasure to see the guys back together again. Stumpy told me that it was there first gig in four years. A guy called Nick has replaced Peter their old guitarist. 'Kin red hot I can tell you and it certainly was in that room after they got done. Ricky was on fine form as always and Floyd 'less his usual goatee' was jamming up a storm. 'Kin magic I can tell you. We must not forget our true pal Stumpy, he still likes to kill his tubs he's a 'Kin animal behind that kit, punishes them he does.

So it's our turn now and the place is jumping. We hit the stage like it's an outdoor gig only to be confronted with this room of oppressive heat and very little air or so it seemed. After a couple of songs I'm like thinking 'how in blazes am I going to get through this 'Kin gig in this heat', so I had to really pace myself and try not to hit the living daylights out of me tubs. We all felt pretty fatigued by about half way through the gig and we all felt like we were melting, really we did it was that 'Kin hot. We got to the end of the show and were absolutely knackered. The fans were drained as well but they were terrific. You guys are what it's all about 'I take me hat and me pants, [especially for the ladies] off to you all. You guys are undoubtedly some of the 'Kin best fans in the whole wide world.

From Johnny B's diary:

Earls court was a blast. There are 3 gigs that are always a logistic nightmare ... Paris, New York and London. This is because they all have massive record company divisions and are major capitals of the music industry. For a number of reasons everybody and their dog wants to go to these gigs. The guest list at Earls Court was so large we ran out of Laminate pouches.

The gig was brilliant. I love the gigs where we can have the full stage along with Wickerman Eddie, the Vestal Virgins, the pyros and explosions etc. Earls court was packed to the hilt. It had been sold out for months. The 'Virgins' were some of the best we have ever had perform with Bruce on stage. Well done ladies. They were really up for it and had already seen details of what they would look like dressed up on the web.

The band really were looking forward to this gig as they knew a lot of the media, record company, TV crews, Sanctuary staff, friends, family and suppliers.

The show went down a storm and the crowd were responsive and really loud. They sung their hearts out from the first song until last. Magnificent gig in the heat of London. Thanks Earls Court.

The night before last we played in Katowice, that was a 'Kin magic night as well, like the Warsaw show the fans were fantastic, very load and it was sold out as well. We had a blast on stage the only drawback to the evening was the miserable defeat that England had at the hands of the Romanian football team. I can't believe that we lost that match. Whilst we were on stage we were being given the old score as it progressed so we were actually very happy for most of the gig until of coarse the last 'Kin goal that sealed our fate, Blast it, any way the gig was magic

From Nicko's diary:

Last night we played in Warsaw in Poland it was a great night. It was sold out and very warm somewhat like the goose temperature I would have to say the fans were ecstatic and were really in fine voice. At one time Bruce asked the kids 'how many of you lot have got the new album' there must have been ninety percent of them that had been out and brought it 'Kin lovely. 'Thank you' Poland you are fantastic. I must say to any of you polish fans that maybe reading this, you always make Maiden feel at home whenever we visit your country, I personally look forward to being with you and always take away with me many fond memories of my time with you again. 'Thank you all'
From Johnny B's diary:

The venue looked fantastic. It looked like a giant flying spaceship. I took some shots and they should be on the web for you all to see. I meet a load of fans outside who explain that they are so proud that Maiden came to Poland. The venue inside is not as space age as outside and I struggle to get online. In fact I gave up as nobody else had any luck and I will try when I get back to the hotel.

The gig is packed, absolutely packed. The round arena is great as the crowd encloses the stage. It nice to see the Deed lads back as well.

Bruce has just leaned over and told us it will be 98 degrees in Leipzig. We will be able to fry breakfast on the runway.

The crowd were fantastic. I put them as high up the ladder as Banska and Earls Court. The sung their hearts out and when Bruce asked how many had the new album 'Brave New World' over 75% must have put their hands up. They weren't telling porches either judging by the number of copies of the new album that I saw the band being asked to sign.

Everything went well. The 'Sign Of The Cross' was fantastic. The Trooper was great tonight. The four Vestal Virgins were absolutely great and really into the whole vibe. Well done ladies. Polish women are so beautiful. No wonder you Polish lads are always so cheerful. The country is stacked with gorgeous women.

WITH FULL FORCE FESTIVAL

With Full Force Festival
Leipzig – GERMANY
23rd June 2000
From Johnny B's diary:

The Full Force gig in Leipzig was a blast. It has a real festival spirit about it. There was on the hour a team of SkyDivers that would leap out from planes over the venue and fly down, buzzing just over the crowd before cleverly landing in the field adjoining the festival. There were also Giant Red Bull cans walking about and a bottle of Jack Daniels next to the stage that must have been 20 foot high. There was also during the day a variety of old classic planes that 'buzzed' the gig flying over the crowd really low before zooming off into the distance.

The crowd were great. They really welcomed the band and they really sang the songs with great feeling and gusto. The band performed fantastically that night and it was another great show. The 'Vestal Virgins' were good and the crowd seemed to love the show.
From Nicko's diary:

We leave for the gig at seven thirty in the evening and we had about a thirty-minute drive to the festival site. The festival is called 'Full Force and I can tell you it 'Kin sure as blazes was'. Rod reckons there were about twenty- five thousand Billies there and they were all having an absolute blast, as were we.

The sound on stage was fantastic, thank you Gonzo you're a diamond in the rough mate, [he's our monitor engineer] and the whole vibe of the festival was magic. The promoters Michael and Sven have done a great job setting everything in place it had a very 'Reading' vibe about it. The show was again right on, we played really well and we all said how much we enjoyed the gig. Thank you to all that had anything to do with the evenings proceedings we had a fantastic time and we do hope to come back to do this festival again sometime in the future.

We played the Graspop festival last night and would you believe it it was pissing down with rain for most of the day, the billies were amazing, the rain sure didn't dampen their enthusiasm for having a good time. We hit the stage at around ten forty-five but not before we had our meet and greet
From Johnny B's diary:

The concert starts in rain and Bruce comes out in one of Coxie's waterproof ponchos. By the 4th song the rain subsides. By the 6th song it has nearly stopped but ... the stage is soaked and very slippery and dangerous. Bruce tells the crowd so they realise why he isn't running around like a whirling dervish. The rain stays away but the damage is done and the crowd are very tired after 2 days of continual rain and very cold and wet.

Bruce misses his lyrical cue near the end of 'Sign Of The Cross'. Disc 2 has a gaps just before the track changes, suggesting that some sneaky asshole who couldn't fix the gaps issue decided to splice all the whole disc into one track and re-cut the track changes so that people looking for gaps between tracks wouldn't be able to find them.

From Nicko's diary:

We hit the stage at eight forty-five in the evening and were off and running in a fantastic groove, the only problem with the spektrum is the acoustics, it sounds like there are two drummers playing at the same time only one's in time with the rest of the guys and one aint, guess which one was on that night? Tee hee. We had a great time. When we had reached the song Iron Maiden, Bruce goes through the Wicker man, as he does he usually gets accosted by the vestal virgins that are chained inside ready to be sacrificed. Well this one virgin decides that she did not wish to remain a virgin any more and preceded to ripe Bruce's clothes off 'im. Well you can imagine what was going on here, Bruce is trying to sing the verse to Maiden with a Richard trying to get his kit off and all heck breaks loose, He stops singing, the rest of the guys are all watching what's happening and consequently we did the first verse again and then we completely lost the plot and by now, know one knew where the chorus was, it was like really funny.

At one stage I wanted to stop and take a look at what was going on behind me, I could hear all this kafuffle going on and the band were in stitches while we were trying to make any sense of the picture. As it turned out we managed to get back on track thanks to H's bold attempt to hit the chorus; we were definitely de-railed there for a while. After the gig we were all in hysterics over what had happened but Bruce quite rightly so was very perturbed the Richard had ripped his shirt and put a bit of a finger nail gouge in his back, he was not a happy camper at all I can tell you.

From Nicko's diary:

Well boys and girls we did a show here in Stockholm on the evening of the twenty seventh that was truly an amazing experience we played the Olympic stadium. There were twenty-eight thousand red hot Vikings looking for a great time with Eddie and the boys and I can tell you it was really 'Kin hot, not in the temperature sense but from a playing stand point. Right from the start the crowd were going absolutely bonkers. We had a blast again and were at the end of the show in what seemed to be no time at all. Well again time flies by when you're having a good time Ahh. After the show our record company had arranged a party for us so we did, you guessed it, a runner. We got back to the hotel and showered and got ready to head off to the party. It was held at a place called Akkurat a fine eating and drinking establishment. The hospitality was fantastic and they had a quite drinkable red Australian wine that I must admit tasted very nice I blasted up on a couple of fine cigars that night as well, I only smoke the occasional cigar on special occasions. This being one of them, I was still buzzing from the reaction of our Scandinavian fans long into the night.

We are soon off to the gig. When we arrive it is ... raining! So what's new. I am so fed up with this rain. What is it with outdoor gigs and us. It can't seem to take place unless it is torrential rain and six inches of mud.

The gig was like nothing I have seen since Maiden were last at Donnington. Flags and banners everywhere and thousands and thousands of fans. 75,000 to be precise. There was a great stage under what seemed like a big plastic tent shaped. The crowd went all the way back to the sound desk, probably about 25,000 people. This would be a fantastic crowd normally but ... behind the sound desk there was a mahoosive video 'jumbo' screen. This was just amazing and the quality was fantastic.

From Johnny B's diary:

The show is amazing. In spite of half the crowd being out of their trees and the weird vibe of holding the concert next to a river. People are paddling on the beach and boatmen are fishing yet still the show goes great. Bruce is in great form. He is having trouble with the mikes and the entire band seems to be having technical problems of one sort or another. Bruce soon goes on one of his climbing sessions. This time he not only climbs up the side of the stage but all along the top of the roof supports until he is 50 foots above the centre of the stage. He sits up there for a few minutes singing perfectly in tune and time with the song. It comes to a guitar solo [cut]

Looking from the stage out over the audience, at the back of the venue, was a massive acoustical doom. It looked like something out of Jaws the movie. I think that Johnny B' had taken some footage of this remarkable structure so you can go to his diary page and check it out for yourselves. It was built with choirs in mind.

If you were in the audience at a choral event you would be facing the way that we were playing, looking into the doom. It was very strange to be looking from the stage at this massive gaping cake hole of a structure, really weird.

We got to the venue at seven in the evening for a scheduled press conference at seven-thirty, it was really more like a meet and greet with a bunch of press guys and girls not to many sensible questions more of a laugh really. After that we met with a bunch of competition winners. We signed a few things and then went back down stairs to the dressing room area. The show time was moved back by a half hour as the France/Italy game was being played that night and the promoter wanted to wait as he expected a lot of the punters would be in some boozer or the other watching the match and he wanted to give them time to get to the show after the game, well he can live in hope ayehhhh.
We had Dirty Deeds opening for us that night and they are one of my favourite bands so I popped up on stage to see them. You had to walk through the audience to get there and that was a bit of fun whizzing through the fans, a few of them recognised me and then some weren't so sure, it was funny. Anyway I got to the stage in one piece and had a laugh with the Deeds guys just before they were due on.

We hit the stage at ten-fifteen in the evening and had a bit of the old collywobbles due to the fact that we were using the B rig again and this time the stage sound was shall we say not as good as we're used to, I know we're spoilt you lot, but that's what you get when you've got the best out front sound and monitor engineers in the business and a great system. We've been using our own PA and monitors for the last fifteen years or so. Creature comforts and all.
From Johnny B's diary:

When we arrive at the Tallin Gig we find that it is an outdoor arena that is usually set up for choirs and classical style concerts. But the part of the arena that looks like a big sound dome where all the choirs and orchestras sit is tonight the domain of the fans. They are sitting in the dome and we have set up the stage facing them. Before us are the infamous Dirty Deeds. Have you got their new album yet? What do you mean no! Get on their web site and buy it NOW! They are a great bunch Dirty Deeds and fantastic fun. They run through a great set and get the crowd nicely warmed up for the Maiden show. Please don't send me any more emails about their drummer WE KNOW HE'S NOT A WELL MAN!

Unfortunately due to the long distances that the trucks have to travel overland there really isn't any way we could take the whole show to Estonia. This is a real bummer for the band. They really wanted to show the crowd the whole thing. Flaming pyrotechnics, Wickerman, Vestal Virgins, Flaming crosses the whole malarkey. Still the band went on to prepare for the gig with the same great enthusiasm that they always do.

However before the fun starts they have a 'Press Conference'. Well I must admit it was one of the weirdest press conferences I have been to. The band all sat at the main table and the idea was that different journalists all individually asked them questions. Well that went up the spout once this particular Metal/Maiden fanatic got a chance. If he asked one question he asked 50 and all aimed at Bruce. 'Why has he had his hair cut? Where is the best town to stage a metal revival? Would he like to be a lead singer for another band? All really top notch, intellectual, get the brain matter going questions. The funny thing was that once another journo would try and ask a question to another member of the band they would get shouted down by this fanatic. Very bizarre. I filmed the whole thing but don't hold your hopes up for a full-length video too near in the future.

We had another distraction before the show, a small matter of the final of the European Championships 2000. Italy V France eh. Well sorry but I KNEW that if the Italians scored first they would shut the door and hold on for the win. Credit (well a little I suppose) to the French for the fight back but when they scored the winner I was off. I couldn't watch them pick up the World cup so I was sure I couldn't watch them grab the Euro Cup as well. This is definitely my 'Dream of Mirrors' nightmare. We had the football team with us in the lounge so there was a great deal of banter going on. There was one great debate between Joe and Squelch as to who were the top team in London. Joe would have it that it was Chelsea due to their fantastic cup runs and Squelch reckoned it was Arsenal because they finished 2nd in the Premiership. It was great. By the time 10 minutes had passed nearly everyone in the lounge was joining in.

Who won the argument? Me! I told them whilst they are with Maiden there is only one top London team- the claret and blue army; and if either Harry or myself get to hear they are trying to claim it is anyone else but the glorious Hammers then we'll take their passes away. I get pelted with cans and verbal. Top bananas these lads. They know when I'm right.

Finally we get to 'Showtime'. The lads pull out a fantastic performance and the crowd really warm to the new songs. The whole show is one great bit of fun. However it was not without its problems. Small technical problems and the fact Bruce pulled his back badly after the first song and found it hard to rush about after that. Well as far and crowd and myself were concerned we couldn't tell. He was still pounding the stage like a Tasmanian devil. He was still climbing the supports and jumping monitors and risers. The show really was top notch.

It was a great end to a fantastic few days that the band and myself will always remember.

From Nicko's diary:

Well we played in Munich last night and it was a great show. The fans were in amazing voice and they were singing all the new stuff as well as the older songs. We ran into a problem with some local/national jobs worth, he said that we didn't have the proper permission to use any of the scrims or back drops that go to make up the visual and authstetice s of the show, something to do with them not being certified FIRE PROOF. What a load of crap German bureaucracy. Can you believe that? Anyway we did the show without anything on stage but a black back drop. You could see all of the back line amps etc and all the guys that are usually behind the scenes were exposed to the crowd. It still went down very well but most of the show was lost.

From Nicko's diary:

We played at the Hallenstadion in Zurich Switzerland last night. We had a blast. The place was almost full I'd say, about ten thousand billies or there about. They were having a great time with us and we really enjoyed the gig. I saw a very dear and old friend last night his name is Bobby Lieser. I've known Bobby for over twenty years. He got me on board with the Paiste family way back in the early eighties. I hadn't seen Bobby for getting on four years, as always a pleasure to see him. I love you mate. Also a gang of over thirty hooligans from the Paiste factory turned out as well. Alex who is in Drummer service arrived with the guys and girls just before show time so I didn't get to see them before we went on but they all stayed behind to see me after the show. We took a couple of drinks together signed a couple of things and had a few pictures taken and then we said our farewells and left the venue at around one o clock in the morning. Most of the guys had to start work pretty early that morning and Nottwil [that's where the factory is located] is a good hour's drive. Guys and girls thank you all for coming it was really great to see everyone.

Iron Maiden Guitarist Injured [From pollstar.com]

Iron Maiden guitarist Janick Gers took a serious fall during the band's July 8 show in Mannheim, Germany.
According to the British metal band's spokesman, the accident happened just after Maiden returned to the stage for an encore. Gers lost his footing during a guitar solo and fell off the front of the stage, landing on concrete more than 10 feet below. He was immediately taken to a hospital.
Gers was knocked unconscious and received a gash across his forehead, which required stitches. He also sprained his back and had severe bruising. The guitarist has returned to London and was ordered by doctors to take a full week off to recover. The band had to cancel shows in Essen, Germany; Sophia, Bulgaria; and Athens, Greece.
"We are always very disappointed when we are forced to cancel shows in this way, but we are also very relieved that Janick is recovering, as it was a serious fall," bandmate Steve Harris said. "We were all very concerned for him when he was taken away in the ambulance."
The European tour will resume at the Vilar De Mouros Festival in Portugal July 16.
From a Bruce Dickinson interview by KNAC.com

He stepped off and fell off. I just saw the guitar gone and him and it was awful! I'll never forget. I mean, I thought he was nearly fucking dead. I really did, because I saw how far he had fallen. He was unconscious. He was covered in blood and his whole head was covered in blood. And there were iron railings and posts. I was really freaked out. And he was so lucky. He actually fell onto a security guard, and that stopped him. And he headbutted an iron post. That's what cut his eye. He was so fucking lucky. He was lucky he was thick [laughs out loud]! That thick fucking head! Shit! I tell you, I couldn't... [hesitates] I mean, I did my singing bit ... I couldn't stay on stage. I was like, what did the ambulance guy say... And then as soon as I heard he was up, he was sitting up talking, you know... He didn't know what he was saying. Apparently, when they put him into the ambulance, his guitar roadie went to the hospital with him, he suddenly sat up and went: "Who's playing my guitar solo?" [laughs out loud].

We had about a one-hour drive to the show so we left the hotel at eight thirty in the evening. It was actually seven-thirty local time in Portugal so we gained one hour on the way down to the show but lost it again on the way back.

We had a blast.
There we're about twenty-four thousand Billies there last night. It was a fantastic vibe at the festival.

Spanish audiences are 'Kin fantastic. We always have a blast playing in Spain and last night was no exception.
We were a bit late taking the stage due to some technical problems with the lighting system.
We went on forty minutes late. Stage time was set for ten o clock. The only drag with going on so late was that I had to be up at four forty-five local time in the morning. I didn't get back to the hotel until one o clock. Oh wellÖ I made it so that's ok.

I like this one pretty much. The audience is great like they always seem to be in Spain and the sound is also pretty good. There's just one drawback: There are some 2 second gaps in some songs (they're not coming from not-DAO. They are in the tracks). Apart of that it's a really listenable bootleg and there's also something special. During The Evil That Men Do Bruce misses one verse but he quickly gets back to the original lyrics and apologizes for it. And there's also a funny accident, when the intro of The Prisoner was played in place of the intro of The Number Of The Beast. I highly recommend this bootleg! (Blake)

Bruce botches the lyrics of 'The Evil That Men Do', then later ends up having a go at someone smoking during 'Hallowed Be Thy Name', telling him to put out his cigarette and missing a fat chunk of the song's lyrics as a result. The date on the back cover is wrong by two months.

Sumit Chandra's review:

Here we go again! With the dawn of August, happiness descended once again on our side of the Atlantic. Sure, it means that summer is reaching closer to the end, but in the Year 2000 it also means that Iron Maiden makes there way to the shores of North America once again! It's been quite fun recently with Maiden touring North America each summer since 1998. This year, the band is supporting the delightful "Brave New World" album and the festivities got under way tonight at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

My ability to make the concert was in jeopardy most of the day, as I was quite busy at my day job. It looked unlikely until the last minute that I would be able to get away for the show. Fortunately, as 4.30pm came, I was able to get enough accomplished to be able to break away and make the 4 hour drive from Detroit to Toronto for the show. The drive across the southwestern part of Ontario was beautiful. The scenery with the rolling fields, small streams and charming cities was quite pleasing to the eyes. As the kilometers ticked down, my anticipation started to build.

Before I knew it, I was on the Gardiner Expressway and Downtown Toronto was in sight. What a beautiful city! Toronto is blessed with an excellent location on the northern shores of Lake Ontario. The downtown on the edge of the waterfront is spectacular with a beautiful skyline that's crowned by the CN Tower (one of the tallest structures in the world) and the Skydome stadium. It's a sparkling city that is the New York and LA of Canada all put into one! I made my way to tonight's venue, the Air Canada Centre. This is one of the new arenas in North America and plays home to the NHL's Toronto Maple Leafs (one of the storied franchises in Hockey) and the NBA's Toronto Raptors. It was an excellent venue for tonight's show as it had all the glitter and comforts of a modern arena. I arrived at about 830pm and the venue was bustling with activity as fans gathered outside and inside to mingle. I made my way quickly inside the venue as Halford had just finished a well-received performance. The audience was now awaiting Iron Maiden!

The inside of the venue was quite impressive. The sporting arena had been configured specifically for the concert. A stage was set up on the playing surface and curtains were used to section off the parts of the arena behind the stage. This created a rather intimate setting for the concert in this fairly large venue. As showtime approached, the seats were filling up quite nicely. The audience was restless as the lights went out to a loud roar and the classic music intro started. The audience was brimming with anticipation when a spotlight appeared to reveal Adrian playing the opening riff to "Wickerman". The rest of the band were still at the side of the stage for the next few bars, and then with an explosion they all took the stage and the show as on it's way. The sound mix was a little bit muddled at the beginning as the sound crew made some of their early adjustments. I really enjoy this song as the set opener. It's got the classic Maiden elements to it with the guitar crunch, the smooth rhythms, the time changes, and of course the memorable chorus. Bruce's soulful and emphatic "Your Time Will Come" almost serves as a declaration that it's now Toronto's time to experience the Maiden magic! The audience was into it from the beginning, although louder ovations would be saved for later in the set. They sang along heartily to "Your Time Will Come" and to the "Whoa, whoa" that brings the song to a close.

We were off to a good start and it was now time for "Ghost of the Navigator". Bruce led the audience in a clap along as the band roared from the intro into the first riff. The sound mix was getting a bit better at this stage and the band appeared to be in good form as they smoothly managed the time changes that make this song special. I was initially paying particular attention to Janick as I was interested to see how he was moving about relative to normal. This is not hard to do, as Janick's stage persona demands attention! It was good to see that he seemed to have recovered nicely and was up to his usual antics on stage. As this soon to be classic ended, Bruce introduced the title track of "Brave New World" and the audience was greeted with another beautiful intro.

As the band started to groove once again, my ears turned specifically to Nicko and his unique drumming style, which comes across perfectly in this song. Nicko was especially good tonight with his accents and fills being precise and even more creative than normal while still doing his usual exceptional job of delivering the backbone of the band's sound along with Steve. The whole band fed off each other with Janick and Dave alternating soloing responsibilities in their trademark styles. The song's end was greeted with a resounding applause by Toronto and the stage was set perfectly for the first of many Maiden classics from the back catalog.

The band first reached back to the 1981 Killers album for "Wrathchild". This song, which is so representative of early Maiden, always goes over well live and tonight was no different. The audience was quite into it and raised their fists in unison to "Wrathchild" as spotlights lit up all sections of the arena. Steve took on backing vocal duties while Nicko continued to display his wizardry on the drums. Even though this song originally featured his predecessor Clive Burr behind the skins, Nicko did a good job of adding his own unique signature to it! Next up was "2 Minutes to Midnight" from the 1984 release Powerslave as Janick led off the first riff. The chorus of this song received some loud support from the audience as most of the attendees sang along with Bruce. Bruce sensed the support and greeted the crowd with his first "Scream for me Toronto" and needless to say, the audience roared in reply! The guitarist were all in good form as they took their opportunities to shine on the song, Janick in the opening riff, Dave with the first solo, and Adrian with the next solo and backing vocals! Adrian and Janick intertwined on leads coming out of the break and back into the main riff as the crowd roared once again! As the song drew to a close, the audience raised their fists in the air once again.

Bruce formally addressed the crowd for the first time before the next song. He mentioned that the last time the band was in Toronto they played the smaller Massey Hall and it was good to play a bigger venue. He also mentioned that the band were really enjoying themselves on the current tour even though many of the press had written them off in the past. He also shared some of his thoughts about Toronto relative to Montreal and Quebec City and the hunger those cities in Quebec possess for metal. He concluded his greeting by introducing "Blood Brothers".

This song is always an interesting one to watch because it's unlike any other Maiden song that the band has ever done and brings back memories of some of Maiden's inspirations from the 70's. The lightshow during this song was memorable as it fit the music perfectly while Bruce took the opportunity to deliver a strong vocal performance by adding his unique charisma to the delivery of each line. The instrumental portion of the song was particularly beautiful with Bruce leading the audience in clapping to the tempo changes and then leading them into the sing along from behind the drum riser! As the song came to an end on a lingering note, the crowd roared their approval once more!

The sounds of monks chanting emerged from the PA as the opening bars of "Sign of the Cross" were unleashed on Toronto. Nicko led the audience in clapping before providing the marching drumbeat to the intro. As the band entered the main section of this song, Bruce emerged on a cross with wings to sing the lyrics. The first two verses of this song have always been among my favorite Maiden lyrics of all-time and tonight it was a great joy to spew them out with the same ferocity as Bruce while the band set a blaze of their own. As this song continued to build, we once again got a chance to see the different facades that the Maiden sound possesses with all of the musicians delivering precise and convincing performances! The song came to an end with an enthusiastic crowd roar and the cross being set on fire.

"The Mercenary" from Brave New World was next and the pace of the show picked up again. Bruce was all over the stage on this one, making his way from one side to the other, and even employing some of the props strategically set up to enable him to swing from one part of the stage to another! The audience sang along once again, although they weren't as familiar with this one as the audience in Mannheim had been. Dave delivered one of his patented solos to keep the energy level up and Nicko continued his strong performance by keeping up the pace while adding numerous elements of intricacy to the sound! As this song ended, the backdrop was changed to reveal an Eddie figure on a battlefield. Bruce pondered "I wonder what song could be next" as the band charged into "The Trooper". Union Jacks were placed on each side of the riser and Bruce waived each one to create the right imagery for the song. This song is an unquestionable Maiden classic and always comes across brilliantly. Tonight was no different! The rhythm section is great, the solos are compelling and the showmanship with Steve charging and Janick playing chords with his guitar cord is classic! As this song came to an end, the band had definitely won over any remaining doubters in the Toronto audience!

Bruce seized the moment and addressed the audience once again. He mentioned that the band were here to promote the new album that he classified as the best the band had ever done! He also mentioned that this was not a reunion to play a greatest hits set or to relive old times, but a new beginning that would forge new ground for the band and Maiden fans everywhere. Then he introduced "Dream of Mirrors" from the Brave New World album. The song started with beautiful lightwork as the stage was dark and bright silver/white spotlights shined on each member while criss-crossing. The audience clapped along as the band once again delivered a strong performance as they negotiated the time changes and the arrangements of this song. The guitar work and the solos were once again excellent. I can definitely see beautiful chemistry continuing to build between the three Maiden axemen, which leaves me quite, excited about what the future may hold!

The backdrop changed once again, this time to reveal Eddie on the Scottish Highlands as the band delivered "The Clansman". The intro to this song fits the background and the theme of the music so beautifully that it's a great treat to hear the vision re-created in front of one's own eyes! The band were really enjoying themselves on stage during this one without compromising the integrity of the performance. At one point, Janick wrapped himself up in his guitar cord by doing repeated twists and then Bruce proceeded to unwrap him by pulling the cord from a distance like a yo-yo. Bruce once again delivered his now patented Russian Dancing while Steve switched masterfully between his normal bass and the acoustic one that's used for certain transitions in this song. Bruce once again urged the audience to sing along in this song and they were slightly hesitant at first. Of course, Bruce wouldn't take no for an answer and used his unique style to get them to comply like only he can! The fans responded and it was a beautiful sight indeed!

Next up was "The Evil that Men Do" from the Seventh Son album. Toronto was ready for this classic and roared as the band took off once again. This song marked the first appearance of Eddie who made his way through a cloud of smoke that were left as a result of some pyro. He made his way to the center of the stage and received a loud ovation from his subjects, i.e. the audience! He sparred with Janick while the rest of the band delivered another strong performance. They appeared to be getting tighter as the show progressed as was the overall quality of the sound mix. "Fear of the Dark" was next and Toronto sang along loudly to the initial guitar melody without being asked! This song has always been a favorite in Europe and went down quite well in Toronto. Bruce was once again masterful in his manipulation of the audience and even offered a drum stick to the audience while climbing one of the speaker stacks! This set the stage nicely for the set closer, the band's namesake "Iron Maiden". "Scream for me Toronto" Bruce demanded and Dave unleashed the opening riff. Once again Bruce performed in the grips of the virgins who were trapped inside the Wickerman Eddie. They were especially touchy tonight and actually made it difficult for Bruce to complete each line. Needless to say this frustrated the vocalist and he felt quite happy to break away and instructed that the virgins be locked up. Flames emerged from the drumriser as the band set the virgin on mock flames! It was quite a grand sight as the band continued with the second part of the song and the virgins simmered in the flames! The audience was absolutely enjoying this and raised their fists and sang along to the chorus "Iron Maiden is gonna get you, no matter how far"! This brought the song and the first part of the set to a close. The band said their thankyous and goodbyes to the applauding Toronto audience and made their way off stage.

Of course, the audience wouldn't let them leave just yet. They were hungry for more and let the band know it by clapping, yelling, stomping and any other means imaginable. The band complied as the intro to "Number of the Beast" came across the PA and they emerged to deliver this classic from the 1982 album of the same name! The pyro is always memorable on this song and tonight was no exception! The story of a vivid yet frightful dream was told very well by the band in words, music and visuals as the audience raised their fists and sang along. Nicko was brilliant once again with his hi-hat work and subtle accents that truly set him apart. It made for a great performance of a great song! "Hallowed Be Thy Name" from the same 1982 release was next. This timeless song is always a delight to hear and tonight was no different. Nicko had a towel draped around his head while Janick used the 3rd guitar to add an additional melodic touch to the intro. Bruce captured the dilemma of the song's subject beautifully in his vocal delivery, especially during the lingering "Running Low"! As the song continued, Bruce made a comment, which sounded, out of place. He had apparently spotted someone with a lit cigarette in the backstage area and urged that person to put out the light. Apparently the person did not listen and this caused Bruce to miss some of his vocal lines. This was interesting as for a few moments we had Maiden karaoke in Toronto! Bruce soon joined his bandmates as the song continued and during the extended instrumental section, he ran from one side of the stage to another to encourage the crowd to roar. He first pitted one side against another and then got the entire audience to roar all at once! This was amazing to hear and it confirmed that the audience had truly enjoyed tonight's performance!

The last track of the night was "Sanctuary". This brought the evening's festivities to an appropriate close with the last opportunities for the audience to cheer while giving each of the band members a fun opportunity to improvise and display their craft. Janick was particularly entertaining as he followed up one of his efforts by rubbing up against his guitar amp and timing guitar screams with his own pelvic thrusts! The song came to an end with the now trademarked triple guitar leads and resounding applause by the audience! The band took their last bows and bid Toronto a fond farewell!

This brought to an end another great night of Maiden magic. It was about midnight and I got back on the road for the 4 hour drive back to Detroit. I was so energized and excited that the drive went by rather quickly except for an unfortunate encounter with Ontario Provincial Police. Before I knew it I was back in Detroit and asleep in post-Maiden bliss! Thankyou Iron Maiden for a great start to the North American tour. I look forward to the first US show in New York City this weekend!

From Nicko's diary:

We had a flight of one and a half hours to Montreal. When we got to the hotel we dropped our bags and I went straight out to find a place to eat. I popped around the corner and found a little Japanese restaurant and I had a bowl of Miso soup followed by some of the best California roll I've ever had the pleasure to indulge in.

We made our way to the gig at seven thirty and had the usual meet and greet at eight thirty. The show was blistering we had a great evening and then after the show we had a meeting in the bar with our manager Rod Smallwood. He bought the drinks that evening so we all went completely mad and ordered loads of booze, TeeHee.

Sumit Chandra's review:

Anticipation! My mind and thoughts were consumed by it as August 5th approached. How could one not be foaming at the mouth at the prospect of seeing Iron Maiden at one of the most famous venues in the whole world, Madison Square Garden. I had been excited about this opportunity for a couple of months now, ever since the band announced that they would be playing this venue as part of their US tour in support of 'Brave New World', and when the day finally arrived I was grinning with excitement!

The day started with a mad sprint to the airport in Detroit to catch the 845am flight to New York. I was able to make the flight in time, and thus was on my way. It was a beautiful day to fly as we flew over Cleveland, Pennsylvania and made our way over New Jersey to the New York City area. The skies were crystal clear as we approached the city and we got the chance to get a bird's eyeview on the magnificent sight that is New York City. From the Verazzano Bridge that's at the mouth of the Hudson River, to the Statue of Liberty that graces Ellis Island, to the twin World Trade Center towers and the Empire State Building in Manhattan, to the Brooklyn Bridge that connects Manhattan to Brooklyn, we saw them all. On our final approach, we flew over Brooklyn and then Queens including the US National Tennis Center (site of the upcoming US Open tournament) and Shea Stadium (home of the New York Mets) before landing at LaGuardia Airport. New York has a way of reminding one of its grandeur from the word go, and today was no different. The theme had been set, and as I exited the airport I smiled at the thought of Maiden being on the biggest stage in the most compelling of cities anywhere!

The afternoon went by quickly and before I knew it showtime was approaching. I made my way on the New York Subway to Madison Square Garden for tonight's activities. Madison Square Garden is one of the more fabled venues in the world. There are so many memories that took place here. This is where Michael Jordan and Reggie Miller (can't believe I'm using those two names in the same sentence) delivered daggers to the New York Knicks. This is also where Willis Reed played on a broken leg to provide inspiration to the Knicks in the NBA Finals in the early 70's. The Garden is also the home of hockey's New York Rangers and thus the site where Wayne Gretzky played his last hockey game. Beyond Sports, this is the marquee venue for all other events in New York including concerts. This is where the truly successful artists, those with real drawing power, perform in New York. This is the venue that Iron Maiden sold out without any radio airplay back in 1983 and tonight, Maiden returned once again to take their prominent place on this stage.

The show had sold out very quickly and the venue was filling up rather quickly as showtime approached. Part of the reason for this was the strong bill for tonight and the entire US leg of the 'Brave New World' Tour. How can one resist Halford (fronted by ex-Judas Priest Metal God Rob Halford), followed by Queensryche (featuring the compelling Geoff Tate on vocals), followed by Iron Maiden? The fans were there early to catch both of the openers and it was well worth the price of admission. The openers did a great job of delivering their material and setting a standard that Iron Maiden would have to work to top! Needless to say, Iron Maiden would be up to the task.

As Queensryche ended, the anticipation for Iron Maiden began. I was in the front section about 7 rows from the stage, right in the middle of the mayhem. The fans around me were definitely in a party mood. There was extensive drinking and conversation in the style that is so unique to the people of New York. The rest of the audience was also electric in anticipation. The chant of Maiden started pretty early on several occasions during the changeover and as the lights went out, approximately 20,000 metalheads roared their approval!

The classical music intro started and the background was changed to reveal the cover of the 'Brave New World' album with Eddie hovering in the sky! There were lights coming from his eyes as he surveyed the masses that were about to be cast under the Maiden spell. Nicko emerged in the darkness above his kit to a roar from the Madison Square Garden crowd. As the intro continued, a spotlight appeared on stage and it was none other than a riffing Adrian Smith with the first chords of 'The Wicker Man'. My head immediately started bobbing and shortly thereafter there was an explosion as Maiden charged the stage. There's nothing quite like the beginning of a Heavy Metal show and tonight was among the most electric I've ever experienced. The gunslingers (i.e. Steve, Dave, Janick and Adrian) were charged tonight and soon a flying Bruce joined them! The rest of this song went by rather quickly as I tried to absorb the scene and the flurry of activity both on and off stage. The sound mix was again a bit muddled, but not too bad considering the arena setting. The highlight of this song was the soloing by Adrian and the return of his original style to the Maiden fold. As this song came to an end, things settled down a bit as Bruce introduced 'Ghost of the Navigator' by remarking that the band had traveled a long way to see tonight's audience. The sound was getting better as the band set forth on the journey that is the second track from 'Brave New World'. Janick had to change guitars in the middle of the first verse, but was quickly back in the mix with the rest of the band to take on his rhythm guitar and then soloing responsibilities. The instrumental section of this song was the highlight tonight as the band went through the solo into the time change and galloping bass lines (with Nicko's single bass drum wizardry) back into the chorus. As this song ended, the band raised their collective arms to a roar from the crowd.

Bruce next introduced the title track of the new album, 'Brave New World'. Spotlights appeared on stage around each member as Bruce sang the opening verse and added some extra zest to some of the notes. As the heavier part of the song kicked in, the sound was crisp and clear. Bruce took his place above the stage for the first time tonight while Steve, Dave, Adrian and Janick manned the front of the stage, each interacting with a different part of the crowd. The chorus was exemplary of the fine sing along opportunities that Maiden is known for and Bruce got the audience to sing along as parts of the 'Brave New World'. They were a bit slow to join in at first, but soon got the hang of it and sang along! As the song came to an end, it was time for something old as the band entered 'Wrathchild'. This song has been a trademark part of the band's live set for years and it still comes across as a strong anthem. The audience joined in with theirs fists raised to the air as 'I'm a Wrathchild' proclamations were voiced all around. The spotlights on the crowd gave me the chance to see how packed the venue really was and they were packed to the rafters all the way around! Dave delivered one of his classic solos reminiscent of his style in the early Iron Maiden days, which was followed by a wickedly delightful scream from Bruce prior to the last verse! The audience raised their fists again to the chorus as this song came to an end.

The energy level became even more electric as Janick unveiled the opening riff to '2 Minutes to Midnight'. This song from the Powerslave album has always reminded of me vintage Maiden with regard to the US audience and the audience tonight was a fine example. They cheered and sang along to the verse and loudly echoed the chorus! The guitarists were alive in full force as Dave delivered another one of his blistering solos before Janick and Adrian carried on the torch during the slow section and then back out of the break. Steve was also on full throttle and had a look of complete fire in his eyes tonight as he headbanged and sang along himself! The song came to an end with the whole crowd proclaiming 'Midnight, Midnight, its all night!'

With the crowd charged and ripe, Bruce seized the opportunity to ask 'How the fu*k are you New York City?' Judging by the crowd roar, I think they were in quite a fine mood! He proceeded to thank them for selling out the show very quickly and welcomed openers Queensryche and Halford to the bill. Bruce's interaction with the audience is always of high interest to me, because it's customized to the particular city and the particular mood that he happens to be in. Of course, he's a master at it, so it's always interesting to hear what he comes up with. Tonight he was particularly motivated. He called the New York/New Jersey area, the heart and soul of metal in the US. He also mentioned to the audience that he wouldn't say that anywhere else, and if he did, the audience could collectively beat him up for breaching their trust! He concluded by saying that this show is about bringing metal back and a big fu*k you to the media. He thanked the fans for supporting the band over the years and introduced 'Blood Brothers'. This song starts out with one of the most beautiful melodies the band has ever written, which is followed by some of the most soulful singing of Bruce's career. On this song, he definitely distinguished himself in the rock vocalist category. The rest of the band was on point and energetic with precision in their playing while delivering more energy in their stage performances than bands half their age! Bruce led the audience in claps as he glided around all different parts of the stage from the front, to each side, and to the platforms next to the drum riser! It was a triumphant performance of this new song, and as it ended darkness and silence fell upon the stage.

This was broken with the sound of monks chanting and the introduction to 'Sign of the Cross'. Nicko rose from his drum kit to lead the claps as the backdrop changed to reveal crosses. As the band moved to the drum march part of the intro, Bruce emerged on a cross with wings behind the drum riser. He was elevated above the riser and then lowered to coincide with the beginning of the vocals. From the first line, Bruce came out charging 'Standing alone in the wind and rain' while the band delivered some of the best riffing of their back catalog. This brought us neatly to the break featuring solos by Dave and Janick. The extended instrumental section was a pure delight to those in the audience who love this element of Maiden's sound. As the song came to an end as Bruce's 'A fire in the sky' was accompanied by the cross being set ablaze as the song came to a close. Next up was 'The Mercenary' from the new album. This mid-paced rocker picked up the tempo of the show as Bruce glided from one part of the stage to another with microphone in hand and delivered the vocals. The sound was crisp and clear as the multiple union jacks emerged in the audience. This song has the classic elements of the Maiden sound with the melodies and the compelling chorus, while also possessing one of the more unique breaks that the band has done which reminds me a bit of 'The Prisoner' from the Number of the Beast album. As this song came to an end, the band chose to keep the war theme going with the next track 'The Trooper'.

This song is an absolute classic that never gets old! Raging rhythms, picturesque lyrics, and high-energy performances by each band member always make this a highlight of any Maiden live set and tonight was no different! Amazing! Adrian and Janick joined on the blistering first solo and then made way for the blazing wizardry of Dave! Even the members of the audience who were there primarily to see Queensryche (there were a few) couldn't resist singing along to this one! As the song came to an end, the audience was united in their roar and Bruce took the chance once again to say a few words.

He initially coughed as he had a drink of water and then remarked 'Beware of water, fish fu*k in it!' He then proceeded to introduce 'Dream of Mirrors' from the new album. The 3-guitar intro made way for some fine acoustic work by Janick as the audience clapped along. Bruce was particularly passionate on this track in his vocals. The stage show with the lights helped set the right atmosphere with circling lights that conjured up the dream effect! As the song continued, the band blistered once again into another classic Maiden instrumental section with a melody and solo feeding frenzy to satisfy all appetites. The crowd got into it more and more, and sang along vigorously to the 'Whoa, whoa'! The song came to a close as Bruce confirmed 'The Dream is True'!

Next up was 'The Clansman'. Bruce asked is someone from Scotland and there were a few roars in reply. Steve took the spotlight on the intro to this one as Bruce joined him with the mood setting vocals. As the first chant of 'Freedom' emerged, the audience was once again engaged although they were a little less familiar with the Blaze era material. During this song, the spotlight once again returned to the three guitarists who showcased their collective capabilities on this song. The band were really enjoying themselves and you could see it in their expressions! Bruce was upto his goofy antics as he pulled out on of Janick's hairs and then proceeded to put on a display of Russian dancing! The song came to a mellow and soulful end to a roar from the crowd. Now it was time to go a little further back into the Maiden vault to 1988's 'Seventh Son of a Seventh Son'. This album that catapulted Maiden to their first headlining appearance at Castle Donington is full of classics, and the band chose to perform 'The Evil that Men Do'.

This song possesses some of the best Maiden lyrics ever. 'Circle of fire, my baptism of joy at an end it seems, The seventh lamb slain, the book of life opens before me' is absolutely classic and no one can do justice to it like Bruce can! It's also a showcase for Adrian's writing and soloing abilities, along with Janick. Tonight, it also marked the first appearance by Eddie in front of the Madison Square Garden crowd and he received one of the loudest ovations of them all! He proceeded to spar with Janick while the band continued at a blistering pace without compromising the melodic integrity of this composition. As this song came to a close, the audience roared again as Eddie made his way off stage. Darkness engulfed the stage again as Bruce pondered and then introduced the title track from the 1992 release 'Fear of the Dark'.

The crowd was into this one from the beginning and sang along to the intro. Janick showed off his improvisation capabilities on this one, as the band transitioned beautifully from one part of the song to another. The crowd was quite active on this one as Bruce resorted to merely acting as a conductor for their voices! The song ended with another mellow outro and Bruce demanded 'Scream for me New York City' and then introduced the 'Iron Maiden'! Dave played the opening riff and the atmosphere became even more electric as the audience sensed the end of the show. My heart started to beat a bit faster as the backdrop opened up to reveal 'The Wicker Man' Eddie with sacrificial virgins and Bruce! This was Maiden at their best with their timeless punkish rock namesake coupled with an over the top stageshow! During the second part of the song, the energy level reached even higher as pyro and mock flames accompanied the virgins and band charged on! The audience was in frenzy during the last chorus, confirming that Iron Maiden had indeed got them regardless of their location! The song ended in triumph with the band and audience bordering on the ecstatic! As the band took their bows and walked off the stage, the audience continued to roar. They were definitely hungry for more; the band did not disappoint.

A few moments later the backdrop was changed to reveal the artwork from the 1982 classic 'Number of the Beast' and the voice-over intro. This album, that was the key catalyst for the band making major inroads into the US market, is also full of classics, none more revered than the title track. The darkness was broken with a spotlight on Steve and Dave as they played the opening riff to this song. The end of the opening verse was followed by a voracious scream by Bruce accompanied by explosions and pyro on stage and pure delight in concurrence by the audience! As the house lights lit up the entire venue, it was obvious that everyone knew the chorus to this all-time Maiden classic (voted frequently to be the favorite Maiden track of all time in Fan Club polls). Bruce was in top form as he catered to the entire audience while Steve's bass sounded amazing during the latter part of the instrumental break! At the end of the song, Bruce claimed 'and I'll make New York City burn!' as the song came to an end with another display of pyro and stage theatrics!

Next up was 'Hallowed Be Thy Name'. Nicko started this off with a towel draped around his head that gave the appearance of a monk while Steve took the lead in getting the crowd to clap along! Bruce demonstrated his stamina with an extended 'Running Low' that seemed to last forever as the band charged into the main part of this song with amazing energy! Janick was flying about like a madman, while Steve headbanged mercilessly, and Bruce made his way from side to side! Coming out of the break, it was time for the guitarists to shine once again. Janick's solo ended a bit later than normal (not sure if that was improvisation or a faux pas) which added a slightly different twist to this rendition of this song. Bruce took this opportunity to get the audience to raise their arms and it was apparent that the band had fully won over the entire crowd by now! The last song of the night was 'Sanctuary'. I always find this song to be a good set closer because it provides good opportunity for audience interaction while giving each member in the band the chance to improvise a bit. Bruce was up to the task as he ran from side to side to get each section of the audience to scream for him. He even tried to confuse them with a little mis-direction (perhaps a tendency from his days on the football pitch?) but the audience didn't get confused and stayed with him! Each of the guitarist got one final chance to show their prowess while Steve and Nicko provided the foundation! Bruce was somehow able to get a hat from one of the New York City police officers who had apparently been in attendance. It just goes to show, that even those who enforce the law sometimes seek sanctuary from it! With some final mayhem, the song and the set came to a close. Bruce congratulated the audience for being great and declared them to be the 'Brave New World'. The band said their goodbyes and then paused for a group picture with ace photographer Ross Halfin and the night was over!

Backstage, there was the usual New York City aftershow party, but the highlight tonight was definitely the show itself. I reflected back on tonight. Had I just witnessed this? Had I just witnessed a band and genre that had been left for the dead just a few short years ago, triumph to a sold out audience on arguably the greatest stage on the planet? It was a testament to the resilience of Iron Maiden and to the whole spirit of Heavy Metal. Here was a band that first sold Madison Square Garden in 1983 as an upcomer without any radio airplay. Through the twists and turns of their career, they played the largest venues all over the world in the 80s and 90s but due to lineup changes, some time away from the US stage, and intense negative press, they chose to play a venue as small as the Birch Hill Nightclub in Old Bridge, NJ in 1996 to a few thousands fans. Now, only a few years later, the band had returned to their original prominence and the proof lies with their excellent new album and a live offering that once again sold out the most ambitious venue in all of America! Well done Iron Maiden and the rest of America, watch out because you're next!

Sumit Chandra's review:

The Odyssey continues! Sunday morning dawned and I woke up to the site that is New York City. I was a little tired but still excited from the events of the night before. However, it was another day and another adventure awaited me! I made my way to the New York airport and rented a car for the drive from New York to Massachusetts for the Sunday evening performance by Iron Maiden at the Tweeter Center, an amphitheater style venue on the outskirts of the Boston Metropolitan area. The drive was a rather pleasant one as I made my way through the rolling hills and picturesque forests of Connecticut and Rhode Island along the Atlantic coast. Before I knew it, I was in Massachusetts and at the Tweeter Center.

As I made my way into the parking lot, the venue was already quite full. There were metal fans all about. They were socializing, drinking, tailgating in the parking lot, all in preparation for the festivities that lay ahead. As I made my way inside, I could kick myself, because Halford was already in the middle of their performance. I sprinted to find some seats and caught the last couple of songs of their set. They were once again being received very well as both the band and the audience appeared to be very much into it. As Halford finished up, the audience was screaming and yelling for more from the Metal God and his bandmates! Queensryche were up next and they went down very well also with a set that featured material from throughout their career. The moral of the night thus far was definitely to get to the show early so one could enjoy the openers.

At this stage the venue was filling up nicely with the covered seated area almost completely full and a fair amount of folks also on the lawn. I made my way briefly backstage and hung out at the Iron Maiden meet n' greet. Janick, Nicko and Adrian were under the tent meeting with fans and signing autographs. I was particularly impressed with a fan who had made the trip from Chile for tonight's show. Near the end of the meet n' greet, Bruce came out to say a hello to the fans. I hadn't realized that it was Bruce's birthday, but the fans were all well informed and they serenaded him by singing Happy Birthday to him in unison! ShowTime was nearing, so I made my way back to the seated area and got settled in for the performance.

It was a beautiful night out with mild temperatures and great air quality. It was also pitch dark now, so the setting was appropriate for Iron Maiden to take the stage! The classical music intro started and the crowd roared in anticipation. As the intro ended, the darkness on stage was broken by a spotlight with Adrian and the opening riff to 'The Wicker Man'. Nicko joined in the fun and then with an explosion Steve, Dave and Janick took the stage. The opening seconds of any Iron Maiden concert always send shivers up my spine and tonight was no different. The crowd roared the arrival of the band who were soon joined by Bruce and his athletic vocal presence belting out the lyrics to the album opener from 'Brave New World'. There was great energy in the air tonight. The venue layout created a compact setting with much of the crowd relatively close to the stage. This added to the overall intimacy of the performance and fueled the energy level even higher. As the band reached the singalong parts of this song, the audience was right behind them singing along to the words and chorus!

Next up was 'Ghost of the Navigator', the second track from 'Brave New World'. The crowd was really loud tonight and this was coupled nicely with the sound quality, which also appeared to be more impactful. Bruce sensed this and took advantage by the getting the audience to join in early and often. The rest of the band was in good form as well with Dave and Adrian facing off and trading riffs, while Steve and Janick maintained their classic poses and added to the overall sound mix! As the song continued to the chorus, there was good feedback in the vocals. The tempo appeared to be a bit racy, perhaps boosted by the energy of the crowd, but the band remained as tight as ever! I was in complete awe of the energy that the crowd possessed tonight. They were brilliant already and it was only the 2nd song of the set! As this song came to a close, Bruce introduced the title track of 'Brave New World'.

The energy level on this song continued at an astonishing level as Bruce delivered the vocals from the front with both of his feet on the monitors. The rest of band was also in good form as Steve and Dave headbanged on one edge of the stage while Adrian and Janick riffed away from their respective spots. The solos were executed fluidly tonight as the three guitarists entered the triple guitar melody while Nicko provided improvisation on the drum fills. As the instrumental onslaught continued, Bruce disappeared and re-emerged at the end to sing the chorus once again from behind the drum riser! The soulful outro of this song came across beautifully as darkness came across the stage once again and the audience roared. Bruce pondered, 'Shall we play something old?' The crowd roared, as Bruce continued 'Shall we play something very very old?' and the crowd roared once again. Nicko started things off with a count of four and the band erupted into 'Wrathchild'! This song always has a strong reaction as it takes most of the audience back to the classic days of Heavy Metal from the early 80's with its punkish rhythms that are so appropriate for raising ones fists in the air! Bruce was enjoying himself as he camped out by Nicko's drum kit and grabbed a stick and played along on the cymbals while Nicko carried the rhythm! Right after Dave's solo, Bruce took timeout to deliver a most wicked scream and then continued with the cymbal crashes! The crowd was abuzz as this song came to an end, and a spotlight rested on Janick who immediately delivered the opening riff to the Powerslave classic '2 Minutes to Midnight'.

The crowd roared and Bruce tempted them with a 'Scream for me Tweeter Center!' as the band exploded into this song. 'Kill for gain or shoot to maim' the crowd chanted as they sang along to the words. As the band reached the chorus, Bruce was supported by Adrian and the entire audience on backing vocals! The band was very charged tonight and it came through very well in their performance. Nicko was an excellent example in his drumming style. He typically has great finesse as a drummer and his drum style has tremendous complexity in his use of the hi-hat and cymbals. Today, he was in a more aggressive groove and his fills and improvisations were definitely of the more punchy variety! This added the right touch to the band's overall sound and aligned very well with the charged and energetic crowd tonight.

At the end of this song, Bruce took a moment to address the crowd. The audience was supercharged and sensing that Bruce was about to speak, they started playing drums on the backs of their chairs to welcome the crowd! This made the whole band smile with Nicko feeling a special sense of camaraderie! He showed his appreciation by throwing a pair of his sticks into the crowd! I noticed a huge banner on the left-hand side of the stage that said, 'New England welcomes Iron Maiden' in Iron Maiden font! Bruce thanked the audience and mentioned how the last time they played the Boston area, there were 3,000 in attendance and tonight there were 12,000. This was definite proof that metal was back! He went on to welcome Queensryche and Halford to the bill and then introduced 'Blood Brothers'.

The sound mix was perfect as the band set sail on this introspective anthem from 'Brave New World'. This song is special to watch performed live because I can't think of a single artist making music today that would create and perform a song like this. This song is so distinctive of the 90s Maiden sound! The lightning rig lowered to create the right angles for the spotlights that accentuated the visual onslaught. Steve was particularly alive during this song tonight; vigorously headbanging and singing along every genuine word and then joining Adrian for backup vocals during the chorus! Bruce was once again on point, as he stood on one leg to deliver the vocals and then glided all over the stage effortlessly while leading the audience in singing along! The audience was once again up to the task and sang along loudly as this song came to a close.

Next up was 'Sign of the Cross' the opener from the 1995 'X-Factor' album. Nicko stood up from his drumkit for the intro to this one and the audience roared their approval. He definitely has to be one of the more loved members of the band! This song has among the most defiant of Maiden lyrics with the first two verses which I absolutely love. I had to put down my pen and pad to join in the headbanging madness. As the song transitioned into the instrumental piece, the band was very precise. They went through the time changes perfectly and each note was played with the unique Maiden passion as they negotiated the twists and turns that this song possesses! As this barrage came to an end, Bruce emerged to sing the last few words in the soulful way that only he can!

Next up was 'The Mercenary' from the 'Brave New World' and the band entered the segment of the set that addresses the topic of War. Bruce loves to use this song as his opportunity to glide all over the stage and took full advantage of the props that had been specifically set up to enable his passage. The rest of the band continued to have fun as Janick used one of Nicko's stick to pick his guitar while Adrian chimed in with a solo in his unique style! The crowd continued to be amazing. I even noticed a guy two rows behind me who had an authentic Eddie mask on during this song! The war theme was continued as Bruce introduced 'The Trooper' with 'Into the valley of death rode the brigade of 600'. This song drove the audience into a total frenzy as everyone sang along. I even saw a couple embracing as both the man and woman sang at the top of their lungs! The fun continued as multiple beach balls made their way through the crowd. One made its way to the stage and Dave gently kicked it back displaying his soccer prowess. The tempo on this blazing track was super fast tonight and it sounded brilliant. I wish I had actually been clocking the band to see how they fared against the song time on the original 'Piece of Mind' CD or on the 'Live After Death' offering! Bruce waved the Union Jacks as this song came to a close and the audience roared again!

Bruce now addressed the audience to introduce 'Dream of Mirrors' from the 'Brave New World' album. He mentioned that most of the members of the band had Progressive Rock as their influences in the past and the next song was about 'Altered States, Different Realities, all done by mirrors'! The band roared into this song and the audience joined them by clapping along to the first few verses! Adrian added an extra guitar sprinkle to the initial melody as the rest of the band made their way through the instrumental section like an Allied force through the south of Iraq. The beach balls continued to fly and Bruce joined into the fun with a well-placed kick back to the audience! Next up was 'The Clansman' and Bruce introduced the song about William Wallace and Scotland that has special meaning in this part of America which was the focal point of the US fight for Independence in the late 1700s. There was no backdrop change tonight that featured the artwork for this particular song but the rest of the delivery was still very well choreographed with the guitarists congregating front and center during the instrumental piece, while Steve switched beautifully between his normal bass and his acoustic bass. The audience again enthusiastically sang along which set the stage nicely for 'The Evil That Men Do' from the Seventh Son album.

The band charged the audience once again, like an offensively minded soccer team that keeps on coming in waves! It was as if the band was challenging the audience to see if they could raise the energy level even higher and once again the crowd was up to the task! Bruce added a little extra to the vocals on this one tonight, by going higher and longer on several notes! It was very well received although I noticed the absence of the walking Eddie during the performance tonight. The band's delivery was still very precise as they delivered another work of fine musicianship and set the stage for 'Fear of the Dark'. Bruce made the comment 'Darkness rhymes with Lochness' to allude to the monstrous theme of the album with the same name! The audience was charmed by the offering and without any suggestion from Bruce they waived their hands side to side and sang along to the opening of this track. This is audience reaction that many rap artists aspire to and beg for from their audience and tonight Maiden was able to accomplish this without even uttering a word! Nicko was once again slaphappy on the skins as he continued his aggressive drummer persona tonight and Bruce continued to cover every last corner of the stage like a man unleashed! During the chorus, Steve and Janick hopped and the audience hopped along! As the solos and the instrumental onslaught came to an end, the crowd expressed their appreciation loud and strong!

Now it was time for the energy to reach it's peak, as Bruce demanded 'Scream for me Tweeter Center, Scream for me Tweeter Center, the Iron Maiden!' and Dave instigated the opening riff! The audience was in a complete frenzy as madness descended on Tweeter Center. One of the channels in the sound let out during the first verse, but it was quickly restored and during the chorus it was pure magic. During the break, Eddie finally made his entrance to a tremendous ovation. It was the Ed Hunter walking Eddie and he made his way across the stage to spar with the band members. Tonight's exchange between Eddie and Janick turned out to be rather humorous. Janick would play a few notes and then during a break in the riffing, he would get in a shot at Eddie who would react to try to defend himself. During one exchange, Janick got in a shot to Eddie's groin, and in typical male monster fashion (if there is such a thing) Eddie reacted by covering his groin to protect which absolutely made me crack up laughing! Every corner of the crowd was absolutely alive tonight and as this song came to a close, there was an absolutely amazing roar! Some fans in the front held up a sign wishing Happy Birthday to Bruce as well as a neatly packaged gift while the rest of the audience got busy stomping on the seats to scream for more.

They would not be disappointed as the words 'Woe to You' came across the PA and the audience realized that 'Number of the Beast' would be gracing their ears in just a few moments! The backdrop changed to show the artwork from the 1982 classic of the same name as the opening riff was unleashed by Steve and Dave. Bruce belted the opening words leading up to the haunting scream that makes this song so memorable! The crowd was active from the beginning. In fact, one ambitious fan actually did some crowd surfing in the first two rows. I also saw that Ross Halfin was busy taking some pictures which I suspect will turn up somewhere in the future! The ending to this song was triumphant as always and the backdrop was changed back to the cover of 'Brave New World' as the band entered 'Hallowed Be Thy Name'.

Steve led the audience in clapping along to the intro as Bruce delivered the words that define the plight of a man about to be taken to the gallows. The band charged once again during this song and another treat was delivered to the audience. The breaks were tight and precise and the melodies were mood setting and haunting! As the band came upon the solos, Bruce demanded that the complying audience 'Scream for Me' once again and the reply came back as expected! The solos were delivered masterfully while Bruce made his way from side to side to get the audience prepared for raising there hands in unison! He first started with the right and then the left and then the whole audience at once! At the end, everyone in the band raised their arms in unison as Dave embarked on some extended feedback improvising! This set the stage nicely for the set closer 'Sanctuary'.

During this song, Bruce took some time to reflect on the audience tonight. He mentioned that they were in Madison Square Garden last night and the audience came back with resounding boos. It's no secret in the US that there is a strong rivalry between Boston and New York and the audience tonight didn't want to have any part of being outdone by their fellow fans in the Big Apple! Bruce continued by mentioning that he had proclaimed New York to be the Heart and Soul of Metal in the US, but he also took the chance to proclaim that Boston truly had Balls of Steel! He concluded by saying, 'Given the choice between my pride and my dick, I know which one I'd choose'! The crowd roared as the band resumed this classic. The three guitarists used this last opportunity to show their improvisation skills, while Bruce took the opportunity to interact with the entire audience once more. With a final three-guitar melody the song and tonight's performance came to a close to thunderous approval by the fans! Bruce thanked the audience for being 'Fu*kin' awesome' tonight and bid them goodbye as the rest of the bands exchanged slaps with the audience before bidding farewell themselves!

This was the end of another brilliant Iron Maiden performance which appeared to have even more intensity than the brilliance at Madison Square Garden the night before. Thankyou once again Iron Maiden and if this is truly a sign of things to come, then I can't wait till I see the band again in Detroit in the middle of August!

From Nicko's diary:

I went up to watch a bit of Rob's set and they were halfway through Breaking The Law when Rob spotted me standing on the side of the stage and he proceeded to walk over and just as they hit the chorus it was, Boom, karaoke time for me, he's popped the mic right in front of me kisser so I had to sing the flipping chorus didn't I, How embarrassing.

The show was absolutely fantastic there were only about two thousand Billies at the gig, [the hall was set up for around six thousand] but man did they have a good time they were so load and really into it. So did we!!!!!!

There were some older punters at the front of the stage and get this, one old fart actually had some food delivered to her during the set right, and she paid the waiter, or whoever, and then started to devourer her rubber dub right there and then while were right in amongst it. Jan couldn't believe his eyes. It was really bizarre.

From Nicko's diary:

We had a most splendid show last night in Philly.
The gig was fantastic and the Billies were really into the show, they were very load and sang all the songs really well.
We did have a problem with one guy in the audience, there always seems to be one 'Kin jerk that feels some need or the other to throw beer at the stage. WHY, WHY, WHY, 'Kin Idiot. It's really dangerous because the stage gets very slippery when it's wet and so that makes it very dodgy for the guys the way they run about during the show. These types of people are NO BRAINERS they aren't real fans because if they were they would know how 'Kin dangerous it is.
Fortunately Bruce saw the culprit and directed our Wally towards him and had him immediately discharged from the building.
It doesn't pay to mess with the Maiden.

This is an ok audience recording. The sound cuts out a bit every here and then, but overall it's good. Bruce goes off on a fan after 'The Wicker Man'. He screams that "Ok, you drunken fuckhead. If you wanna throw shit to the stage, come on and throw it to my face and afterwards I'll rip your fuckin' head off and I'll shit down your fuckin' throat!" He also rants about how they sold out Madison Square Garden in two hours and decides to call Scranton "Long Beach Arena"! (The_Assassin)

Sumit Chandra's review:

Return to the magic and madness! My mind was frolicking in a little tingle as I woke up on the morning of August 15, 2000. Sure, it was another typical summer day, however it was also a special day because today would mark the return of Iron Maiden to the very unique city located in Southeast Michigan known as Detroit in support of the 'Brave New World' album. Detroit has a place all its own when it comes to American cities. As the hub of the Automotive Industry, the city is home to two of the largest companies in the world, while also being a trend setter for the Automotive industry around the world. (Some of my counterparts in Europe may disagree) The city has a great mix of industrial innovation and manufacturing might while also being a haven for the recreational side of life with a strong supply of lakes and golf courses. The city also holds a special place in American culture as being a hotbed of music with the whole Motown movement and names like The Supremes and Ted Nugent to its credit. With its work hard and play harder mentality, the city and its fans have been especially good to rock and metal artists in the past. KISS has always had a special affection for Detroit (dubbing it 'Detroit Rock City') and any rock / metal band touring the US is always certain to make a stop in the Detroit. Iron Maiden is no different. The band have always had a good following here and have always delivered enjoyable performances. Needless to say, I was excited about the events that awaited me tonight!

As I have been lucky enough to be staffed in Detroit (as part of my day job) recently, there was no travel required to get to the city as I was already here. I managed to leave work a bit earlier than normal and speedily made my way towards tonight's venue, Pine Knob Amphitheater located in the northern suburb of Clarkston, MI. Pine Knob is another one of the amphitheaters that are popular venues in the US in the summer time. It's nestled beautifully in between some hills and has a covered area with seats as well as an inclined general admission grassy hill behind the seats. As I arrived at the venue, it was already filling up with hardcore metal fans. They had arrived from all over Michigan and also from nearby Canada and upper Ohio and were partying in the parking lot. One of the local rock stations had organized a little pre-show party and was doing a simulcast that featured songs from the bands on the bill tonight. I made my way into the venue and could kick myself as Halford was delivering the crowd-pleaser 'Breaking the Law'! Once again, I had managed to miss most of their performance. Thankfully Queensryche and obviously Iron Maiden were still ahead.

I made my way around the venue and ultimately to my seat about 11 rows back facing the right side of the stage. In the process, I ran into a couple of fans that remembered me from previous Maiden or metal encounters. It was good to catch up with them as we discussed our mutual anticipation for tonight's performance. Queensryche gave another well-received performance and now the stage was set for Iron Maiden. The skies were now dark and the anticipation was building for Maiden to take the stage. The house lights went out and the audience roared as the classical music intro began. I still need to figure out what this piece is called so I can appropriately identify it in upcoming reviews because it's such as appropriate beginning. The stage background was changed to reveal the artwork from the 'Brave New World' album as red lights shined through the eyes of the Eddie figure on the artwork! As the classical intro came to an end, Adrian emerged under a spotlight strumming the opening riff to 'The Wicker Man'. The other members of the band provided some background support and then with an explosion accompanied nicely by a snare and tom sequence by Nicko the band took the stage. Seconds later, a flying Bruce joined his bandmates with the first words as the show was underway. I don't think I'll ever get tired of the adrenaline rush and excitement that accompanies the very beginning of any Iron Maiden show and tonight was no different.

The band were displaying good energy tonight and during the 'Your time will come' spotlights shined brightly on the Pine Knob audience to alert them that it was indeed their time to partake in the Maiden bliss! As the song continued, Adrian remained in the spotlight with a sweet solo while Bruce took his place in the front of the stage with both feet on monitors to deliver the words. The rest of the band played their parts well, as did the crowd by singing along resoundingly to the chorus.

All was not perfect however, as there were a couple of problems that hovered above the performance for the first 4 - 6 songs. The sound mix was initially muffled, but improved steadily. However, it was held back by some of the setup of the monitors and PA. This was something that irritated Bruce right away as it was impacting his and the band's ability to clearly hear the monitors and thus remain crisp in their performance. Another issue was apparently with Nicko's kit which it appeared was being adjusted (as if undergoing impromptu) surgery for many of the early numbers in the set. This constrained Nicko as he had to play around the pieces of his kit that were being adjusted at a given time. This must have been especially challenging for him as he's known to make full use of every drum and percussion device available to him when performing live, however he did a fine job of keeping the rhythms focused and consistent. A final element that also constrained the performance tonight was in the stage setup. Although the band was able to fit in the entire stageshow, for some reason the bars and sliding handles that connect the platforms next to the drum riser to the ones on each end of the stage were missing. Typically Bruce uses these to glide from one part of the stage to the other, however tonight he would have to make these journeys by walking down from the platform and then walking through the main stage area and then climbing the platforms at the front ends of either side of the stage.

Despite these annoyances, the band remained professional and carried on with the performance in blistering fashion. 'Ghost of the Navigator' was up next. As Bruce introduced the song, the lightning rig lowered to bring the spotlights closer. Bruce took a moment to acknowledge the size of the crowd before the band kicked into the main groove of this soon-to-be-classic. The band members were again in good form and delivering their unique performances. Dave riffed away in his typical happy stance before the spotlight turned on Janick for the solo. The audience was quite into it as I noticed multiple banners and beach balls floating about. As the band entered the bridge, the three axeman took centerstage as a group before Bruce joined them to sing the final chorus. Next up was the title track of the new album 'Brave New World'. The melodic intro was especially nice with its beautiful instrumentation as Bruce delivered the first verse in an introspective tone from the platform next to Nicko's drum kit. The overall sound continued to get better as they entered the main part of the song and then the chorus. Janick delivered the first solo while Steve huddled at the drum kit with Nicko to ensure the rhythm section stayed on time. Dave made his way to the center with the next solo before Adrian and Janick joined him for the triple guitar melodies! Bruce then led the audience in one final chorus leading to a triumphant end for this song.

By now the audience was in the mood for something old. Bruce sensed this and asked them if they wanted to hear 'Something old?' or perhaps even 'Something Jurassic?' As the audience roared, Nicko delivered a count of 4 into the opening moments of 'Wrathchild' from the Killers album! Dave joined in with the introductory solo as the fists of Detroit were already in the air. Bruce came down to stage level while Steve stood directly to his left in his classic pose delivering the bass line. During the first chorus, the spotlights lit up Pine Knob as fans from the first row of seats to the back row of the hill proclaimed 'I'm a Wrathchild!' Dave continued with another fine solo, while Bruce did some stretches on stage before unleashing a most wicked scream that seemed to linger forever! The band and the audience were once again in unison during the final chorus and then again at the very end as the song ended to a voracious roar!

'How are you?' Bruce asked and as the answer came back Janick played the opening riffs to '2 Minutes to Midnight' from the Powerslave album. The temperature at Pine Knob seemed to be getting higher as the band unleashed this favorite among the US fans. The crowd was singing along from the get go, even at times when there wasn't a chorus. The overall sound was getting better and didn't appear to be quite as loud as it had been at some of the other shows that I've seen thus on this tour. Perhaps it's a sign of my ears getting acclaimed (i.e. desensitized) to the audio onslaught that is a Maiden performance. The guitarists were again in good form as Dave delivered another beautiful solo while Steve's fingers were a flurry over his four strings as the band entered the instrumental break of this song. Steve went into his classic shoot down the audience with his bass pose before Adrian and Janick took the spotlight coming out of the break back into the final verse. The Detroit audience was loud and emphatic during the final chorus as they proclaimed 'Midnight, its all Night'!

Bruce addressed the crowd once again after this song. He spoke of the band's successes on this tour including the special show at Madison Square Garden. He continued to say that the band had never really had a problem drawing in Detroit and then proceeded to share his disdain for the mainstream media while appealing to the common threads that unite metal fans everywhere! He then introduced 'Blood Brothers' from the new album. Once again the light show on song was memorable during the melodic intro. As the band entered the main part of the song they were pumping on all cylinders while Bruce displayed intense conviction in his vocal delivery. Nicko was getting more in the groove now with his classic and crisp drumming style and the crowd was in an approving mood with their voices. As the band entered the truly riveting moments of this song, i.e. the instrumental break and the time changes, they were in really good form. Bruce got a good clap along going with the audience while Dave and Janick handled the solo duties masterfully. The last chorus was again great and as this song ended, the stage went dark as the sounds of monks chanting came across the PA.

The mellow intro of 'Sign of the Cross' was next, followed by the emergence of Bruce on a cross with angel wings that rose behind Nicko's drum kit. It continued to rise and almost reached the ceiling before being lowered to be the same height as the platform behind Nicko. He leaped off the cross with the opening words as the band joined in to deliver the aggression that is the beginning of this song. I was in happy times with this song as I put my notepad down and took the liberty to headbang and sing along. What an energy release this song is! Nicko did a great job of laying the foundation with his crispy accents and triplets as the band entered the instrumental portion of this song. Maiden's sound has continued to get more and more progressive over the years and this song is a very good example of the evolution. The instrumental portion builds with a good haunting rhythm before going into time changes followed by classically delivered Maiden solos by Dave and Janick. Both guitarists displayed their fluidity on their instruments tonight, while Adrian joined Steve and Nicko in maintaining the rhythm with timely power chords! During the final verse, the cross was set ablaze to the line 'A fire in the sky!' which received an appreciative roar from the audience. Next up was 'The Mercenary'. This is typically a song where Bruce charges all corners of the stage and interacts with the entire audience, however tonight it was as if he was trapped on an island due to the lack of some of the stage props that facilitate his passage. At this point a nice breeze came through the crowd which was a relief on this hot and muggy night. The chorus on this song is one that the audience can relate to 'Show them no fear, Show them no pain!' and many of them sang along to the words although some of the crowd was not yet familiar with this new track. It still had the classic Maiden elements however with another blistering solo by Dave followed by Adrian in the spotlight with his own display of six-string wizardry. Bruce made up for the lack of stage props by running around all over the stage to interact with each side of the audience! The band climaxed this song with a hard stop and then the backdrop changed to reveal the artwork for 'The Trooper'.

It was instant recognition by the audience and as Bruce waved the Union Jacks on either side of the drum platform, the roar of Detroit was loud and true! It almost made me wonder if in fact we were in Britain! I just sat back and simmered in the audience reaction on this song. They sang along and went pretty much ballistic throughout. The lighting was good on stage and then the houselights lit up the entire crowd on the chorus! Dave delivered another great solo followed by Adrian and Janick before another mad rush brought us the final verse and final chorus of this 1983 classic!

Bruce took the chance to address the audience once again and this time he had a very specific point to make. Apparently, someone in the audience had thrown beer on stage. This miffed Bruce immensely and he was not at all shy about sharing his anger. He was in rare form and was definitely the most expressive I've seen him and that's saying quite a lot! He proceeded to issue a verbal assault on the fan and reiterated that the band was all about the music and it was very rude of someone to put the band's safety at risk by being a prick. He told the audience to not piss him off tonight (as he was already irritated by the issues with the PA) but then lightened up by asking 'Apart from the prick, how are the rest of you?' The crowd replied and then Bruce thanked them for sticking with the band while everyone had written them off in the past few years. He also thanked openers Queensryche and Halford and then introduced 'Dream of Mirrors'.

This song was once again delivered very well, starting from the heavy intro with Bruce's vocals on top to the mellow melody that introduces each verse. Detroit was happy to proclaim 'The Dream is True' and clap along as the band started the second verse. As we entered the power chords and chorus all systems were go. The band was blistering and the stage show was excellent with the lights and the choreography. Solo after solo with intertwined melodies seemed to get finer with time, much like fine wine and Maiden's delivery of these musical elements continues to be superior to all peers! One could really tell that the band was fully alive now! Next up was 'The Clansman' from the Virtual XI album. Bruce asked if anyone was from Scotland in the audience or of Scottish heritage. Many roared back while Nicko used the mellow intro as the opportunity to throw some sticks into the audience. As Bruce reached the first chant of 'Freedom' the band was once again in great form. Nicko's drumbeat was a little heavier on the bass drum during the instrumental bit prior to the second verse. The three guitarists hopped around the stage like little kids (they still have fun on stage after all these years!) before making their way front and center for the triple guitar melody. Dave delivered the first solo and utilized some extra elements of feedback in his sound. Bruce returned to lead the crowd in the chorus while another gentle breeze cooled down the audience! As the band finished the delivery of this song, the audience gave a great applause in appreciation.

Next up was 'The Evil that Men Do' from the 1988 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son album. As the opening chords of the intro to this song hovered in the air, Bruce asked, 'Are you ready Detroit?' A loud scream was his reply as the band unleashed another Maiden classic from the past. They were once again very active on stage with Bruce leading the way. His glides from one side of the stage to another reminded me of a skater in Ice Hockey. This was especially relevant in Detroit as the city is home to the Detroit Red Wings who've being among the elite of the Professional Hockey world with 2 Stanley Cups in the late 1990's. During this time, the city has become Hockeytown USA and the fans' passion and appreciation for hockey is unrivaled in the rest of the country. (Of course, across the river in Canada is a different story where Hockey is practically religion) As my thoughts wandered to the ice for a moment, they were quickly forced to focus back on the concert as a ball of smoke went up on the left side of the stage. This was soon followed by the entry of Eddie! The Ed Hunter incarnation of our favorite monster took his rightful place on stage and demanded a reaction from the Detroit fans. The fans were more than happy to oblige before he made his way towards Janick side and engaged in a blow by blow match. Janick, the quicker and nimbler of the two although slowed by his guitar duties was especially punchy tonight and managed to get in a couple of kicks as well as his usual slaps! Eddie's mass was hard to overcome in this friendly skirmish and as the song came to an end, Eddie focused his attentions once again on the audience before walking off stage.

The stage set was completely dark now, as Bruce introduced 'Fear of the Dark'. The audience was involved from the beginning as they sang along to the melody and the intro in a manner similar to audiences in Europe. The mood for the delivery of this song was very authentic with the lights and the music and the words. The band was in excellent form and continuing to get even better as the show progressed. The audience response was deservedly loud as the band went into the extended instrumental break with Janick and Dave delivering delightful solos! Bruce was a pure animal during this song, running all over the stage and singing his heart out while Steve and Nicko kept the rhythm focused yet diverse. The outro of this song was an excellent mix of serenity and eerieness as Bruce pondered 'As I'm walking the dark road, I'm a man who walks alone!'

'Scream for me Detroit, Scream for me Detroit, The Iron Maiden' Bruce commanded as Dave played the opening riff to the band's namesake. The audience roared as they sensed the end of the main set. Bruce emerged in 'The Wicker Man' Eddie surrounded and draped by virgins! What a dedicated man to his vocal craft he is as he managed to sing the first verses beautifully while being almost eaten alive by the eager vixens! The rest of the band was also having an excellent time (although under less intrusive and less pleasurable circumstances) as Steve gave support to Bruce on backing vocals. Eddie's head with red lights for eyes went side to side to add to the visual effect of the stageshow. During the break, the Eddie with the virgins in it was engulfed in mock flames as real flames added to the visual onslaught in the second verse. The final chorus was absolutely triumphant as the energy level peaked and everyone sang along! Each member of the band displayed his improvisation skills while Bruce unleashed another wicked scream! The band members took their bows, sprinkled goodies into the crowd and said their good-byes. The audience was hungry for more and let the band know with their chants of Maiden and other noise making tactics.

Soon, the PA system gave way to the words 'Woe to You' as the backdrop changed to reveal the artwork from the 1982 classic 'Number of the Beast'. The title track from this album was next as the stage lights created a devilish red mood on stage. Steve and Dave joined forces for the opening riffs while Bruce told the tale of a most haunting dream! The crowd knew the words from the beginning and screamed in unison with Bruce at the end of the intro as the platforms next to Nicko's drum kit were engulfed in explosions and then flames! During the first chorus fists were raised everywhere as I looked back to take in the immense size of the crowd. What a beautiful sight it was indeed! Nicko was very enjoyable on the drums during this one with his sharp accents and rolls during the solos. The final chorus was another example of audience participation utopia as we were treated once again to a sequence of explosions and flames!

'Hallowed Be Thy Name' was next as Steve led the clap along during the intro. Bruce sings this song exceptionally well and tonight was no different. The audience joined in during the 'Running low' but to no one's surprise, Bruce outlasted them all! As the band entered the solos, more brilliance was displayed with Dave's solo, which was followed by Janick's successful attempt to play as many notes as humanly possible in a limited amount of time! Bruce delivered another display of his vocal abilities during the final chorus as the song came to a thunderous end. Without a moments rest, the band entered 'Sanctuary'. This term has been a constantly lurking theme in the band's career as its also the name of their Management company and is now also the name of a record label that will feature some prominent names in the near future. But first and foremost, this song is about 'Sanctuary from the law' for a man on the run as well as an excellent opportunity for the band to display their instrumental prowess and to interact with the crowd! Bruce was up to the task as he ran from side to side manipulating the audience in halves and then as a whole! The rest of the band was in good form as the guitarists played delightful solos while Steve and Nicko delivered a strong rhythm. Janick was a pure madman during one of the breaks as he did everything imaginable with and to his guitar before a triple guitar melody played out the final notes of tonight's performance. Bruce and the band thanked the audience and promised them that they would see them soon!

This brought another night of Maiden bliss to a close for me. I drove home happily into the night reflecting back on another great Maiden performance. One that was particularly memorable due to the crowd and the band's performance despite some of the difficulties with the stageshow and the less than desirable behavior of one fan. Overall, it was another example of how Maiden manage to do their best regardless of the circumstances. Thanks Iron Maiden and I'm looking forward to rejoining the fun in Cleveland next week!
From Nicko's diary:

Although all kinds of stuff were going wrong on stage we had a fantastic time.
We played at the Pine Knob Amphitheatre to about twelve thousand Billies last night. The venue is forty miles outside of Detroit.
We hit the stage at nine o clock in the evening. We got down to Brave New World when my ride cymbal decided that it didn't want to be on its stand anymore. The poor old metal decided to snap and all of a sudden I've got my cymbal in me lap. The 'Kin thing then slipped off to my right and the broken piece of metal on the backside of the cymbal pierced me floor tom head thus putting a hole in it to boot.
'Kin marvellous.
So there's me drum tech, Rusty, trying to put a new stand top together and he was having a bit of a struggle with getting the cymbal in the right position.
He gave up after awhile and went and sat down to regain his composure. I got him back up during the intro to Sign of The Cross and we managed together to put it in its correct position. After that he went to change the Floor Tom head. We were now at The Mercenary; I don't us the toms in that tune so it gave Pete enough time to change it. He was not amused at all with the evening's proceedings I can tell you.

There was another really big problem in the fact that our sound engineer, Doug 'what's with them spuds growing out your ears' Hall, he put the PA in a really strange place in relation to the front of stage, so when the guys went out on the ego thrusts they couldn't hear the rig. Bruce was livid about it and I don't blame him. At one time he wanted to push the flipping thing over he was that wound up about it.
So after the gig we had a word with Doug and sorted it all out. It was just one of those things.

From Nicko's diary:

We played a show last night at a venue right next door to a Six Flags Over America theme park about forty miles outside Buffalo at a place called Darien Lakes Arts Centre.

I was gutted when I arrived and saw the massive roller coasters that were in the park. I love to ride them. I would have appreciated it if our Tour Manager had told me where the gig was at. I would have probably gone down early for a few rides. It was just as well though as I wasn't feeling too good, as I don't today. NO boys and girls I'm not hung over but it more than likely has something to do with how out of it I got the other day in Scranton. I must be going into three day hangovers, perish the thought!!!

We played a blinder last night. A 'Kin good time was had by all. Steve and Karen Dewey were there. It was their last show before they head back to Florida. Karen volunteered to be one of the Vestal virgins and so had a great time while being sacrificed in the Wicker Man. She was on cloud nine after the show I can tell you.
We left the show at midnight and made the forty-minute drive back to the hotel. When we arrived we found that the hotel bar was closed, the geezer behind the front desk told us of a bar that was open just across the road. Just then, Dave and Jan arrived in the lobby back from the very club /bar that the guy just told us about.
Dave and Jan had already been in the bar for an hour as they had done a runner after the show.
'There's a blues band playing over the road' said Jan.

So we all decided to pop on over and take a look.
An old friend of the bands called Andy Curran was there with Harry, he used to have a band called Colney Hatch, they toured with us back in eighty-four. He had a couple of his friends with him.
H and myself accompanied Steve and Karen Dewey to the bar. When we got there the band had finished playing but we were invited to go on up on stage and make as much noise as we would like. We bantered the idea around between us but nothing happened, Bruce was really up for a good thrashing on the tubs.
I was feeling pretty shagged. I had a beer said goodnight to everyone and made me way to bed.
I just could not get to sleep at all last night. I felt so tired but maybe I was over tired who knows.

Very nice bootleg from the American leg of the Metal 2000 tour. Remarkable things are that this one has no errors & the quality is pretty good. It's almost like soundboard at some points. Especially Bruce's voice and the drums can be heard very good. Unfortunatly the gig is pretty standard. (Blake)
During 'Ghost Of The Navigator', Bruce gets pissed off at a fan pointing a laser at him. This sets his pissed off mood the whole show.

The show was brilliant, we're really having a great tour, I'm not so sure that we are doing the right set as sometimes when we get to Sign of the Cross and The Clansman these songs don't seem to be getting a great response. There is a lull in the proceedings at this point.
Anyways we shall have to have a band meeting and discuss the issue. We can't avoid it anymore.

The view from this site is spectacular, really spiritual. The sound there is fantastic and the audience are really one of the best in the US. We had a blast, as did Rob Halford and the Ryche gangs. I spoke with both Rob and Jeff and they were both in agreement that it was one of the best yet.

That evening we had a show at the Koseinenkin Hall in Tokyo. When I met with the guys they were amazed at how bad I looked, it was the worst, even worse than the hangover from Scranton USA. I have to say that I didn't play very well that night.

The guys were very sympathetic bless em..

The audience were fantastic; they really helped me to get through the show. I was really hurting.

From Nicko's diary:

We played at a place called Osaka Zepp last night.
What a fantastic gig. It must have been at least a hundred and ten degrees plus in the room. The Zepp is a club here in Osaka. It was heaving in there I can tell you, the vibe was really great. I think that the audiences in general prefer to be in clubs here in Japan. Thereís a whole different feeling to it than say in the Tokyo Sun Plaza and the like.

It really is the way to play over here. When the kids are in the bigger seated places there is a completely different vibe. They are a lot more reserved, if you like, polite. Thatís ok but we like it when the kids really get into the whole vibe and go crazy. After all thatís what weíre doing AAAHHHEEE!!!! Personally I prefer the club gigs.

Good bootleg from Maiden's second to last show in Japan during Metal 2000 tour. Quality is very good, but show is quite standard, doens't quite match previous shows during this particular Japan tour. There's nothing wrong with this one, but this isn't anyway special. (Blake)
Bruce misses first several verses in 'Sign Of The Cross.
The name of this bootleg comes from Bruce's speech when he says: "We are really sad this is almost the last night in Japan."

From Nicko's diary:

We just got offstage from our show at the Shi-kokaido in Nagoya. This venue reminded me of the old Newcastle City Hall in size and the old balcony set up. It was fantastic.

We took to the stage at six o'clock and were off at seven forty-five. No I didnít play fast, you rotten lot you, how could you think that, TEEHEE. Bruce didnít speak as much as he usually does, thatís why we came off stage a wee bit early ok. So we all had a great evening.

The show was a hoot and we played a blinder tonight. The sound was not the best, but we made up for that with the energy and vibe from the stage. Harry had a few problems with his rig tonight, but that didnít stop him having a great time. We all enjoyed the show and were flying when we got offstage.

Really awesome audience recording from the last show in Japan during this tour, the sound is so good that you could think that is a soundboard recording. It probably was recorded with a DAT in a strategic place because it is really fantastic. Something really funny was that Bruce spotted a Brazilian in the audience and said: "Brazil, eh? See you in Rock in Rio."

Well the last show in Tokyo was fantastic what a gig to go out on. We played the Tokyo Zepp, which is a club gig. 'Kin magic. There was a full house of two thousand and four hundred Billies and we rocked the house I can tell you!!!!!!!!!

After the show that evening we attended a charity bash at the old Hard Rock Cafť in the city. It was for the Make a Wish Foundation. We presented a cheque to the foundation from our record company EMI Toshiba, for Nine hundred thousand Yen, which works out to about Five thousand pounds. Thank you so much EMI Toshiba.

We had a great gig, even though we were a bit the worst for ware. We were recording the show as well and I think that helped us stay focused on the job at hand.

What a great bootleg! This one includes the full set of Halford (who was supporting Maiden) at the beginning AND the full Maiden concert, too! There's also another version of this bootleg, which is called Essen 2000 but has a very bad sound quality and the Halford gig is also missing, but this one is complete! And the sound quality is also very good! Highly recommended! (Blake)
From Nicko's diary:

The gig that evening was great. There were seven thousand-five hundred crazy Germans in the room and we had a blast I can tell you. Ozzy Hoppy our promoter was there and we had a few libations together back at the hotel. Rod also came over and so there was a really nice party atmosphere after show. A magic evening.

Take care! There's also a really, really bad version of this one around! But this is the better version. Ok, the sound is still only average but it's listenable. When you have the version where's the Intro and The Wicker Man missing than you have the shitty version. Nice moment in this one is when Bruce and the fans sung the chorus of Alexander The Great during Sanctuary! (Blake)

Sumit Chandra's review:

What a way to kick off the New Year! In late 2000, I got the news that Iron Maiden would be playing a couple of concerts at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire in early January. Given that I hadn't seen the band since their appearance in Las Vegas, I was intrigued by the opportunity. A quick foray into travel arrangement planning yielded an affordable flight and hotel accommodations and my plans were set. As the year 2000 elapsed, I was counting the days down and on Thursday evening January 4th I made my way to the Airport in Atlanta for the British Airways flight to Gatwick. After an initial panic as I was quite late for my flight, the rest of the transit was very smooth. I woke up the next morning to discover that we were passing over Ireland and would shortly be landing at Gatwick airport. After a jaunt through customs and a quick ride on the Gatwick Express I was in the heart of London.

London has always been one of my favorite places on the planet for several reasons. First of all, it has a pulse unlike any other city. It's among the world leaders in business, commerce and entertainment while at the same time offering an excellent mix of old world charm and new world diversity in terms of people and of course the food! Most significantly, London is also the birthplace and home of the mighty and now legendary metal machine known as Iron Maiden. This is where Steve Harris grew up (in the city's East End) and formed the band. London is also home to many of the other members of the band, the band's recording company and management team, many of the band's most hardcore fans and also serves as the inspiration for some of the topics that the band addresses. I have never had the opportunity to watch the band on their home turf and I knew that I was in for quite a treat.

I got acclimated to the city and time zone on Friday and Saturday and as Saturday evening approached, I made my way to the venue in West London. Shepherd's Bush Empire is quite an amazing place. It's essentially a theater that has been turned into a concert hall. Given that it's got three levels of seating above the floor (all with clear views), excellent décor, great acoustics and an overall intimate setting that's quite rare for an Iron Maiden concert these days. Upon arriving at the venue, there was already a huge line outside of fans trying to get in. Even though the venue seats only somewhere near 2,000, one could already sense that it was going to be an enthusiastic crowd. Although most of the crowd was English, there were numerous fans that had arrived from all parts of the world. I personally met a sizeable contingent from USA (including some of the Chicago Mutants from my hometown), as well as fans from Scandinavia, continental Europe, Japan and points beyond. It's a testament to the deep loyalty and passion that Iron Maiden inspires that any Maiden concert anywhere in the world simultaneously turns into a global meeting of Heavy Metal fans!

Once inside, openers Dirty Deeds were performing their opening set. They were well received by the audience and one could tell that they felt quite at home in front of a primarily English Audience. As Dirty Deeds finished up their set, immediately the audience broke into a chant of 'Maiden' followed by 3 claps (very similar to the clips from the 12 Wasted Years video from the bands early days at the Marquee) to set the stage for the headliners. As the wait continued the anticipation continued to build with some of the most synchronized chanting I've heard. The wait wasn't long as the lights went out and the classical intro music started. Shortly thereafter Nicko appeared behind his kit to a loud roar, followed by Adrian with the opening chords to 'Wicker Man' and then the rest of band emerged and the show was underway. Although the band had not performed live as a unit since early November, they were in fine form and the atmosphere was electric.

As the show proceeded, the band continued to deliver the magic like only they can. The set list was the same as earlier in the tour with a heavy influence on the material from the Brave New World album and many of the classics from the earlier albums. In order the band played:

The Wicker Man
Ghost of the Navigator
Brave New World
Wrathchild
2 Minutes to Midnight
Blood Brothers
Sign of the Cross
The Mercenary
The Trooper
Dream of Mirrors
The Clansman
The Evil That Men Do
Fear of the Dark
Iron Maiden

The entire set was delivered brilliantly. The highlights for me tonight were 'Ghost of the Navigator', 'Blood Brothers', 'The Trooper' and 'The Evil that men Do'. As always one of the interesting elements is the conversation that Bruce has with the audience during breaks between certain songs, and I noticed that Bruce tonight was fairly short in his addresses. He thanked the crowd for coming out and wished them a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and also remarked that he would like to make the band's appearance at a London venue like Shepherd's Bush an annual event. (Although he did leave the final decision on that up to Management)

The band were really having a lot of fun on stage tonight. Bruce was up to his usual antics running all over the stage and climbing platforms and amplifier/speaker stacks whenever possible. Steve was running around all over as well while singing every word. Dave, Janick and Adrian were their usual selves as they each took their turns in the spotlight with blazing solos while also delivering strong and precise support to the rhythm section. Nicko was his usual octopus self behind the kit while emerging frequently to interact with the fans or other band members.

The only hiccup was during the finale 'Iron Maiden' when a walking Eddie dressed in The Wicker Man incarnation appeared in the background but could not manage to walk out onto the main stage. Of course, Eddie lingering in the background is not necessarily a bad thing as it immediately reminded me of the 'Running Free' single artwork from Maiden's earliest days.

As the band said their initial thankyous and goodbyes, the stage was set for a most memorable encore. It was started once again with the intro to 'Number of the Beast' followed by a brilliant rendition of 'Hallowed Be Thy Name'. As Bruce introduced 'Sanctuary' he remarked that the band was close to their curfew but decided to take a defiant stance, which echoes the theme of this song. All of the band members had another opportunity to shine and as the song concluded the audience gave the band a thunderous ovation. I waited for the band members to say their goodbyes and throw out goodies into the crowd but the band waited and Bruce remarked 'There's more!' and at the count of 4 the band played the opening chords to 'Fallen Angel' from the Brave New World album. I was in blissful shock! I knew that the band had played this song on some European shows earlier in the tour, but I had never had the chance to hear it live. I proceeded to happily sing and headbang along as did my peers in the audience. After this song, the band stayed on stage as Bruce introduced the latest single 'Out of the Silent Planet'. This song is a great number live with its heavy start, good tempo and great chorus. It was another delight to my ears and left me with a huge grin on my face. As this song ended, the band was pushing 11pm and they said their final thankyous and goodbyes to the elated fans!

This brought the memorable Saturday night to a close. A couple of other items that stood out from the evening, besides the excellent Iron Maiden performance was the appearance by Blaze in one of the bars and in the backstage area. I had the chance to say a quick hello to him and wish him well with his solo efforts. He also had the chance to spend some time with the band prior to them going on stage. Another highlight was the huge after show party at the Backstage Bar at the venue. This was a really large gathering featuring some lucky fans, friends and families of the band, the band members and many of the business associates of the band. Although I didn't stay for all of it, I'm told that all had a memorable time! Finally, tonight also marked a major event in the life of one Janick Gers as he had become a proud father earlier on Saturday. Special accolades to him for still meeting his commitments to the fans right in the middle of a major family event! As I made my way back to the hotel, the anticipation for Sunday and another healthy Iron maiden offering had already begun!

Sumit Chandra's review:

Sunday Night promised to repeat the accomplishments of Saturday with some subtle differences. The venue was once again sold out and the audience was even more rabid tonight. I think the substitution of industry and business people (no offense to them as I tend to fall in one of those categories for most of my life) with more hardcore Maiden fans definitely made a difference. Another element was the overall performance of the band. The crew had the benefit of leaving everything intact from the night before and the sound / light experts were able to pick up where Saturday Night had left off as opposed to starting from scratch. This definitely made a difference in the sound and overall presentation of the band.

They were firing on all cylinders from the word go although there were some difficulties with the pre-recorded intros to some of the songs. They played the same set list as the night before. Some of the highlights tonight included the introduction to 'Ghost of the Navigator' where the audience was clapping along even before Bruce got the notion of encouraging them, to the absolutely emotional part of 'Blood Brothers' that sent tingles up and down my spine, to the sheer power and melodic beauty of 'Sign of the Cross' and 'The Clansman'. Like the rest of the audience, I was reminded again and again of the elements that make Iron Maiden so unique.

Bruce was a bit more talkative tonight. Prior to 'Blood Brothers' he thanked the fans for supporting the band throughout the lean years when every new trend lead to the proclamation of the death of Maiden style metal by members of the media. Prior to 'Dream of Mirrors' he mentioned to the audience that earlier in the week Maiden had received the news that they had been nominated for a Grammy this year. He continued by saying that the band found that a bit surprising and thought it was interesting that Maiden were pitted against 'Slipknot' and 'Marilyn Manson' among others.

Other highlights of the performance were the excellent audience participation throughout. It was amazing to these American eyes how quickly and in unison the audience would raise their hands to clap along and how loud they would roar during the choruses. The crowdsurfers were in full form tonight as well with some female fans also partaking in the activities. Finally, one of the funniest moments of the entire night was the impromptu dancing that Nicko did behind his kit during the intro to 'The Clansman'. It was absolutely hilarious to see him dancing without a care as if he was a kid and a very good testimonial to the youthful exuberance and energy he possesses to this day! As the main set came to a close, Eddie was able to make a complete appearance unlike the night before. He came out during the second half of 'Iron Maiden' and proceeded to take his place on stage and engage in playful antics with Janick and Dave.

The wait for the encore was short tonight and it consisted of the same 5 songs as the night before. Once again, 'Number of the Beast' and 'Hallowed Be Thy Name' were delivered as the timeless classics they are. Then the band played 'Sanctuary' and once again closed the set with 'Fallen Angel' and 'Out of the Silent Planet'. The band then said their thankyous to the appreciative fans and Bruce once again suggested that he would like to see this become an 'annual event'. The after show festivities were minimal tonight as the band and the crew had an early departure to Mexico City the following day for the first date of the South American tour.

As the evening came to a close, I took a moment to reflect on the past 6 months or so when I had the pleasure to see Maiden perform 15 times on the Brave New World Tour in several countries. Each show holds unique and special memories that range from the venue (who can forget Madison Square Garden in New York with almost 20,000 metal maniacs, to the Aladdin Casino in Las Vegas in the heart of sin city or Shepherd's Bush in London which was the epitome of atmosphere, acoustics and decor) to the always enthusiastic and charming fans (such as the Japanese fans in Europe who were startled to discover that Bruce had been standing next to them for a minute talking to someone without them realizing it, to the fan from Chile in Boston who had flown 13 hours to the USA just so he could attend the Iron Maiden concert, to the Mexican Metal Princess in Dallas and Houston that confirmed that women can be as dedicated in their support of Maiden as any bloke without compromising one ounce of beauty, to all the other Maiden fans that had traveled across oceans to see the band with their own unique Maiden tales to share) to the crew (ranging from the roadies, to the sound and light managers, to the epitome of security in Wally Grove and tour management in Steve Cox) and then finally the band themselves with their brilliance as musicians and yet their excellence as intelligent, charming, approachable and fun-loving human beings! It's been 6 months of pure metal bliss that's made life very fun indeed!

Carry on Iron Maiden and conquer Central and Latin America in the weeks to come and may we have the pleasure of receiving more Maiden magic in the years to come!

From Nicko's diary:

The show in Mexico was on Tuesday the ninth of January. I arrived from Miami that afternoon as I decided to stay the previous night with me family. We played at a place called Foro Sol. It's an outdoor venue and I can tell you the 'Kin weather was atrocious that night. Pissing with rain and very cold. It didn't dampen any of the fans spirit, truly amazing. The gig was brilliant, although there were some sound problems here and there due to the fact that we were using rented gear and the power kept fluctuating.

We ploughed on through regardless. We had a great show. Dean Carr and Arturo were with us, they had flown in from L.A that afternoon with a couple of people to start work on the DVD that we're doing. They were filming some off stage stuff and a few interview bits, that kind of thing. Dean is such a blast and Arturo as well. Arturo, [his name is really Arthur], he's the producer; he was filming around my tubs at both the shows. This DVD is going to be so good.

From Nicko's diary:

We left the hotel for the gig at seven-ish and on our arrival we had a couple of meet and greets to do. I did a little piece for the DVD and then it was time to get ready for the show. We had a fantastic show that evening. The fans were just amazing. We all thoroughly enjoyed the vibe and people.

Thank you everyone who was there for such a perfect time.
