No, not that. The fact that we have CONFIRMED Maiden date for next year is enough, and in a part of the world they haven't played before?! Fuck yeah :metal:

Alright, this coupled with Bruce's hint at a Euro festival is sign enough that Maiden will be in action next year. Any bets as to whether or not we'll be getting some U.S. Of friggin' A dates?

There will be at least one California date... probably down South. That's my bet.

And we got to hear Where Eagles Dare!!!!!!!!!!!!!:horns:

Which was probably worth the trip all by itself! :rocker:

But we also got to hear Prowler, Another Life, Drifter, and Remember Tomorrow, which are all songs that I thought I would never get to see live. Too bad you weren't in the pit with us. It was a blast. I think Ed sold an extra pit ticket right before the show. If we had known you were there, it could have been yours.

I would not want to have left them since they bought my ticket in the first place. I had a good location in the seats!!!
