Greetings fellow members of the board, and then you lot who joined recently, which in that case... hi... Anyway, I have arrived in Dublin and am now waiting for my connecting flight to Paris for the Iron Maiden gig. Yes, my signature was not a lie all this time those of you who even bother to read/look at them.

I must say that compared to the Orlando airport, which is heavily visited as you may assume, the Dublin airport is beautiful! I mean it's simply gorgeous! Amazing looking marble floors, or marble looking I should say, and clean windows and so on and so forth. I will keep this thread as more of a blog than anything until I return home with more in depth gig tales and what not.

Up the Irons! :rocker:

Flight to Paris from Dublin was very short. I will now give you bullets on key things since landing in Paris.

Why is this airport so shitty?
Why is everything to dirty?
Why is the Metro such a bitch to figure out? You should speak English, rather... AMERICAN like the rest of the world!
French Fries are the best in France, but steaks are not.
Iron Maiden meet ups are really awesome... When you speak the same language...

I flew out earlier today (7:15am) for Vienna so the girlfriend could see her favorite band, My Chemical Romance. The trip was super short 50min-1hr, and the airport was wonderful... tsk tsk Paris...

Had the nicest Romanian Taxi driver in the world, and the hotel is amazing! I will add photos to this thread when I get the time to do so.

Tomorrow I wake up earlier to get a taxi back to the airport where we fly out to Paris, again, to see Maiden! The Paris event shirt is epic! I will attach!

Damn that's a great shirt! I'm really jealous of you. Now that you've flown all the way to Europe you'll actually get to see the full stage show with big Eddie.:D

Also, if it's possible could you pick me up the tourbook at one of the shows? I can paypal you the cost of the book plus postage.

Thanks man, I appreciate it. Have fun! I saw Haley's pics of Bercy, looks like an awesome venue.

I'm pretty sure Maiden will do something different with their setlists for one or more of the UK dates at the end of their tour.

I'm pretty sure. :hmm:

Last night I saw My Chemical Romance with the girlfriend, and they were pretty spot on like always. This was one of the few Headline gigs away from Festivals in Europe so it was a real treat.

Sum 41 opened the show, and they are just as a good as I had hoped, plus better ;).

During the middle of the set, the singer asked if the crowd had any requests... Me being me I started chanting "MAIDEN! MAIDEN! MAIDEN!" and soon others began to join. "You guys like metal huh? We like Metal... You want some Iron Maiden? Lets see how you like some Maiden then..."

Cue: THE TROOPER!!!!!! (through to the chorus)

Next the Slayer chants started... Raining Blood! (through to the blast beat before the verse).

Next... Master of Puppets. The whole Guitar solo and one chorus.

Ending with Enter Sandman, these guys can really wail! Shame they don't let you see their true talents on record...

After the show we headed back to the hotel, it was a nice little side trip to Vienna. Thus far it's been my most favorite place, sorry Paris...

Next up? IRON MAIDEN!!!!! Up the Irons!!!!!
