Not really gonna post a full review, just the set, video, and pictures I took.

My first time seeing Alice Cooper, and I thought he was awesome. He sounded great, the band sounded great, and just the theatrics of his performance were so much fun, he was really good. Also, when he came back out for School's Out, he was wearing a NJ Devils jersey with the name 'Cooper' on it and number 18. Thought that was pretty cool (we were in the Devils' arena).

Maiden, as always, sounded awesome. This is my 5th time seeing Maiden, and honestly, I think Bruce sounded better last night than any other time I'd seen them. The whole band sounded great, everything was spot on. The stage was awesome, the Eddies were great. Another amazing performance by my favorite band.

Yeah, he is a big sports fan. In Charlotte he wore a Carolina Panthers #18 jersey with his name on it, and a Braves jersey in Atlanta with the same #.

He always gets custom "Cooper 18" Jerseys.

I would have bought a Philly Flyers jersey while I was there... if their sports stores didn't suck so bad.

He didn't have a jersey in DC. I expected a Nationals or Redskins one.

I'm just glad Alice didn't cancel. Could easily have done.

IrritatedTrout

Why would he have canceled?

Their drummer had to leave because he was having neck or back pain or something like that, so they got a replacement (don't know his name, just know that he played with Alice previously).

Oh, that's right. I saw the replacement in Philly and was thinking it looked like a different guy from Atlanta. :lol:

Replacement is Jonathan Mover, from the 'Trash' album and tour.

:lol: same here.

Bristow was the first time I've ever seen him make a mistake in 8 shows.

He didn't chop the wrong persons head off, did he?

Nothing so drastic. Just a lyrical mistake.

The union jack flag in that picture belongs to my long-time friend and ex-bandmate John Wesolowski. The guy to left of him in the picture is my good friend Scott. Small world, I guess.

You know, it's a shame I didn't actually get to meet you at the show, so you could make sarcastic semi-insulting comments to my face. :tongue:
