(By the way, please correct me if I'm wrong about the first couple of songs of his setlist.) I'm not too familiar with his music, but I think I'll have to remedy that now. Really glad I got to see him.

Iron Maiden were... phenomenal. Every bit as great as I hoped they'd be. I've been waiting for years to see them, and I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever get to. The last time they were in Atlanta was in 1997 with Blaze Bayley (I believe). When I heard they were finally returning, and focusing on songs from my favorite album of theirs, there was no way I could miss it. Everyone was in top form and put in an energetic performance. Bruce undersang sometimes, but I can't fault him for it, seeing as he's 53 years old, and was running around the stage like a madman the whole time. Eddie came out during 'Run to the Hills' wielding a giant sabre. Janick threw his guitar and twirled it around like a true showman. Adrian and Dave were as cool as ever, nailing every solo. Steve was the commanding presence he always is, and it was a treat to finally see the 'machine-gun bass' in person. And lastly, Nicko was precise and powerful on the drums, kicking ass and never missing a beat. I could hardly be happier with my first Iron Maiden live experience, although I did miss 'Hallowed Be Thy Name' and maybe 'Wrathchild' or something from 'Killers'. Oh well, small fries. Maybe it won't be so long until they return to Atlanta (or wherever I happen to be), and I'll be sure to be there. Now for the setlists:

ALICE COOPER

1. The Black Widow
2. Brutal Planet
3. I'm Eighteen
4. No More Mr. Nice Guy
5. Hey Stoopid
6. I'll Bite Your Face Off
7. Feed My Frankenstein
8. Poison
9. Wicked Young Man
---I Love the Dead excerpt
10. School's Out

IRON MAIDEN

1. Moonchild
2. Can I Play with Madness
3. The Prisoner
4. 2 Minutes to Midnight
5. Afraid to Shoot Strangers
6. The Trooper
7. The Number of the Beast
8. Phantom of the Opera
9. Run to the Hills
10. Wasted Years
11. Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
12. The Clairvoyant
13. Fear of the Dark
14. Iron Maiden

Encore:

15. Aces High
16. The Evil That Men Do
17. Running Free
Great review, I am glad they are touring places in the US that they haven't done in a long time and I am sure the response will have them coming back to Atlanta and others again and again

I cannot wait for August 13th this setlist is pretty much tits (If I was to change it, I would switch out Running Free for Hallowed, and Wasted Years for Stranger in a Stranger land; yes Stranger wasn't played in 1988 but fuck it) I've seen them twice and they put on a great show, even at their ages


Oh, I guess I am a little sad that Still Life didn't make it;
