Was hoping for a good band. Hell, I'd rather see Rise To Remain just to see which offspring has more talent.

Also, I'LL TAKE YOUR FUCKING LIIIIFFFEEE!

They announced the Florida dates in December? :eyes: But yeah I've had all my tickets for awhile.

Just bought my plane ticket from Paris to Gothenburg yesterday!

For quite awhile. Only US dates of 2011.

Blade Tide used to be cool, then they went on tour with Taking Back SUnday and all hope was lost.

If it was Black Tide two years ago it woulda been cool. Since its 2011 Black Tide thats sad. Im sure the dude feels retarded now getting all those that tattoos and big ol plugs. Iron Maiden aint gonna be impressed by that.

Complete fail. Seriously ANY metal band would open for Maiden, I don't understand how they end up getting these weak openers.

I thought godsmack had anounced they were playing with Maiden, maybe I just assumed that was florida, if not, where are they opening for Maiden at?

Mexico City. Also, Ravenheart, two European shows have Alice Cooper opening so that's a good sign.

He probably won't end up doing the whole tour. Just happens to coincide with Maiden in Scandinavia.

Plus, for some reason bands feel they need big support in Scandinavia to get people to go (they really don't), but don't think the UK and other European countries needs that.

I hope the Euro dates do get better. Alice would be nice, hell even Slipknot since I do like them. Paris and Gothenburg are gonna be great!

Could be worse... Could be the local Maiden house band/opener Lauren Harris... Or is that already implied b/c Maiden plays she plays too?

There are no rumours at the moment for the UK but I lost all faith in Maiden to bring decent support a long time ago.

Well, we didn't do much better.

Airbourne at all but three shows.
Dragonforce in Belfast and the first London date.
Trivium at the second London date.

I'll be in the pub.
