Well it's taken long enough, but my band finally has enough shows booked (including several at the same venue), that we're planning on "throwing" a show at the end of this month by ditching all original material to double as an Iron Maiden tribute band! With the help of our ex-second guitarist rejoining us for this gig, we will be performing a 45-minute set of Maiden tunes, straying from the absolute hits a little bit to include a few of our lesser-known favorites. We'll also be wearing all-Maiden t-shirts, and trying to imitate the band themselves with our stage moves and whatnot. It's gonna be A LOT of fun.

If anyone would happen to be within reasonable distance of Allentown, PA and would enjoy rocking to the great tunes of Maiden with us for 45 minutes, let me know! Show is on January 30th!

I can just tell you what we're playing now if you want to know. I'll make sure it's videotaped.

is the Mars: the Bringer of War from Holst's the Planets? or some obscure maiden thing that i am unaware of?

and The Prisoner is one of my all time faves.

Yeah, it's from The Planets. Maiden used it on the AMOLAD tour, hence why we'll be doing it as the intro for Different World.

Nice, i was right on both counts. that piece rocks, if classical can rock. most of it is a march.

You should come, it'd only be like a 90 minute drive for you. :D

On a serious note, we are playing in Carlsdadt, New Jersey on February 13th. I'm pretty sure that's somewhat close to you, you should definitely come out!

OMG U AREN'T DOING ALEXANDER THE GREAT


Seriously, the only thing I don't like about that set is Different World (I'd do Wildest Dreams or Wickerman)

Initial thought was to do The Wicker Man, but honestly everyone in my band doesn't like playing it. For some reason we just can't get a good feel for it, it's weird.
