Well, from what I hear Philly is usually one of the worst places for Maiden gigs as far as audience and ticket sales go. Don't know why but every time they play in Camden it's one of the least attended shows of the tour. I think it was by far the least attended NA show of SBIT. I remember the crowd actually starting to fray Bruce's nerves at one point at this show. He was trying to get them into it and it just wasn't happening. I remember my section being fairly dead but I didn't give a fuck, I was giving it my all.
When I saw them in Philly this past summer the crowd seemed to be on fire, of course I was on the barrier so the only crowd I could see were RAZOR from this site and the guy on the other side of me.
That's one of the nice things about the barrier, it always feels like a great crowd because you don't even notice the stupid lawn-sitting, hotdog-eating, piss break-taking, Run To The Hills fanatics behind you.
