What a fucking awesome show Maiden does it again. This was my third time seeing them and I am going to say it was the best. The entire band was spot on. Bruce had a great rant about how he hated the venue because they made Maiden start early and couldn't do the entire stage show and the place should be brunt down (agree) and there was some pot smoking going on and that he would prefer to smell his own farts instead (to each his own I guess)

Highlights were Moonchild, ATSS, Phantom, trooper and 7th Son. If you haven't seen this tour yet get your asses down to Texas for the final 3 shows

BTW I got there as Coheed and Cambia finished so I don't have a review for them

He said the same thing last month at my show when talking about the stage not being big enough to fit everything. Not entirely the fault of any of the venues considering that most bands don't have a stage prop the size of one Eddie, let alone two. I'm glad I went to two shows since at the Toronto show they did have the Eddie during 7th Son which really added to the awesomeness of seeing the song live.

Amphitheaters in general suck. If you don't want to be restricted, stick to arenas. Better acoustics, air conditioning & all the room you need for everything you want to display.

I love Maiden more than just about anything, but I call bullshit.

They should have played Red Rocks, with no curfew...

I'm not trying to imply everything Bruce says is the truth, but why would he bullshit about this? Why design a stage show based on the smallest stage you will play on a tour? Then when you play a normal/larger venue, the stage props look like they are out of Spinal Tap?

Then when you play a normal/larger venue, the stage props look like they are out of Spinal Tap?All I'm saying is that they (management) knew which venues wouldn't be able to house the entire stage production, so they shouldn't have booked shows at said venues. I realize Bruce is prone to ranting, but in this case, I don't think it's the fault of the venues. I can't imagine Bruce would rant about his/their own management, though.

I'm not sure about Maiden's management knowing the stage size of every venue they play before hand unless it's something they ask when booking the venue. Still, it's really impossible to know until they set up for the venue if everything can fit or not. I'm sure there's other factor's than just the size of the stage. I think how much storeage room in the back and sides of the stage would play a big part in it as well.

Maiden obviously knew that not everywhere would be able to fit their whole production. They brought a banner to hang in the back during 7th Son in place of the Eddie when they couldn't fit it.

I wouldn't say arenas have better acoustics. I think amphitheaters are superior at least in that category

Then the arenas you've seen shows at either suck or you haven't seen enough concerts in them because arenas always have better sound than the amphitheaters do. It's too bad so many bands do the summer tour thing now, it would be great to see more shows in an indoor arena.

Oh really, how is that exactly? Have you been to the same shows at the same venues i've been to? That's the only way you can claim that i'm wrong. I'm just going by my concert experiences and the arenas i've seen shows in have always had better sound than the amphitheaters. Maybe it's different in your area but that's not the case here.
