If Mexico will let millions of American citizens migrate to Mexico to see Iron Maiden, then we will give amnesty to all illegals. It is a fair deal, in my opinion.

Hey! I would've loved to see Maiden with Blaze. Particularly for the smaller venue atmsophere. I'd kill to see Maiden in a place that only holds 1,500 people, instead of 15,000.

The cheapest way I have found is to fly to San Antonio and then drive to Monterrey, which is about 4 hours. You wouldn't need a passport to drive across the border like you would to fly into Mexico. The logistics would be more difficult than just flying straight to Monterrey, though.

Rock legends IRON MAIDEN have confirmed that the final show ever of their massive Somewhere Back in Time World Tour 2008 - 2009 will be in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on April 2 at the BankAtlantic Center. This, the band's first concert in Florida in 13 years, will definitely be the last gig of one of the most ambitious rock tours ever undertaken, and promises to be a big party night for both the band and audience.

Actually I've never been there but I do know it is an indoor venue and Im guessing it will be an open pit. I think its funny how last year I flew from Florida to Cali to see them and this year you are flying from Cali to FL. We should definitely meet up again. Does anybody have any info about tickets for this yet?

Sucks for those people. I really detest all kinds of fan club drawings and such. It's just my nature that I hate any kind of contest or extra money you can spend to give you an advantage over other people. Maybe it's because I've been broke forever and can't afford special fan club packages and VIP tickets, but I just really hate that stuff. I was enraged when I saw Maiden last March and I got there at 10:30am, and I saw over 100 people who got there after 4pm get into the show before me. At least I was lucky enough to see them in June when they didn't do that, and thus I was able to get on the rail.

i'm not in the fan club or anything, but i think the whole first to the barrier thing is a good thing. there has to be a reason to be in the fan club, and this is it i guess. there is nobody on this board that would turn down that chance if they it were given.

The thing is that just because you're in the fan club doesn't mean you automatically get it. It's basically a gimmick on their part to get people to join the fanclub because you might get an opportunity that used to rightfully be first-come-first-serve. My original statement still stands.

For those of you not in the Iron Maiden Fan Club, there is a mini shit storm brewing in its forums over this.

I got a floor ticket right at the buzzer. The whole thing took less than a minute. A few minutes, I purchased a seat in nosebleed.. well the first row of nosebleed (great view in case the floor is like the Forum show. Thought the seat was in the middle of the arena but some one confirmed with TicketAssRapeMaster that it was a half arena show. Instead of the middle, it now almost be in line with the stage.

Last year's sales were poorly done. This morning's was a total pigfuck for too many. It's not high prices alone that will hurt / concerts music.. it's almost this kind of experience. There's nothing fun about it.

I got my ticket last night, and thye were late. Tix went on sale at around 12:04 not 11:58. And the If you buy a SINGLE Ticket you can get a SEAT in the lower levels, if not you get the Upper Level (Level 4). GA I guess is for Fan Club only which I think is total bullshit.

As SOON as the tix were released you couldnt get a GA Ticket. I understand FC has some rights, but if they get exclusive rights to the pit, thats wrong.

It's Wrong to also make it so if you want a GOOD seat you can only buy ONE ticket at a time. Buying two or more pushes you to the very top level. :confused:

Regardless I'm going, and I'm in the Nose Bleeds, it's still Maiden, but I hope they some how clear up all this confusion... If you are the 1st in Line and you arent FC why cant I get GA?

Well the seats thing is just logic. The reason you can only get multiple tickets in the way-back is because the tickets are basically selected at random and due to the high demand of tickets, it's easy to get a random single seat somewhere decent, but for them to try to find multiple seats in a row, you have to go really far back. It sucks, but unfortunately it's just the way it is. When I saw Maiden in 2006 my friends and I wound up splitting up to get better seats because sitting alone 5 rows back in the first seated section is a whole lot better than half way back through the last one.

But wouldn't you figure they would start the bottom and work up? Sell out One Section all the way then the next? From Left To Right, Bottom to Top? Not one there 3 up there, 6 here, one two... three more way over there.

How can "Best Available" be random? lol :tongue:

I can't tell you why it works like that, but it does, I know this for a fact. It's not totally random, it generally works from front to back, but they don't simply sell from Row 1 - Seat 1, then Seat 2, then Seat 3, etc, etc. Say there are 10 seats in a row. If 3 sets of 2 people buy tickets, they don't necessarily get seats 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. They may get seats 1 and 2, 4 and 5, and 8 and 9. Thus leaving weird gaps, which makes getting good tickets in groups when there are high demands very difficult.

I checked out the Venue hosting the show in Ft. Lauderdale, and it will be a Half House Show (Like I guess the Forum was as posted earlier). So good news I think for all! :party: everyone is closer, so awesome! Should be a great show.

I looked it up, and it's been posted that Maiden has been playing from around 9 to 11, but here the show is suppose to start at 8, so I hope we get an extended 3 hour set ;) never hurts to hope, get some more rarities in the set haha

Don't want to kill your hopes, but Maiden's never going to play that long. The show's going to start at 8, but the opener (Lauren Harris I can only assume) will go on at 8 and play 'till 8:30. Maiden will come on at 9.

Don't they usually list a opener by now? They announced Carcass as soon as they announced the shows in Mexico. I figured she might be there though, but when I read the times I was skeptical.
