Iron Maiden -- New York, NY -- June 15th, 2008

Another quality, amazing show from Iron Maiden. The sound cut out towards the end of 'Powerslave' and after about a 10-15 minute delay, the show was back and running. The band kept the crowd pretty well entertained throughout the delay as Bruce starting doing a little dance and then the band began kicking a soccer ball around the stage! Bruce even took one of the Egyptian statue things and used it as a shield while blocking the soccer ball. After the sound was finally restored, Bruce went on to say it was perhaps the 'Ghost of Sharon' and that the 'wicked witch of the west had struck again!' Anyways....great show again and the band played very well as always. I also picked up one of those cool NJ/NY event shirts.
The setlist was the same as always:

Aces High
2 Minutes To Midnight
The Trooper
Wasted Years
The Number Of The Beast
Can I Play With Madness?
Rime Of The Ancient Mariner
Heaven Can Wait
Run To The Hills
Fear Of The Dark
Iron Maiden
The Clairvoyant
Hallowed Be Thy Name

The timing for the power to get cut off was pretty hilarious. "TELL ME WHY I HAD TO BE A POWERSLAVE" *everything stops except for the tiny sound of un-mic'd drums for a few seconds*. They did a good job not letting us get pissed during that time, . Anyway, amazing show, other than my seat location, this is every bit as good, and possibly even better than in march.

Did they end up actually finishing the song or did they just skip right to the next one?
and the singing dies down for just a second, right? Long enough for my dad to go "This is how they used to transport the Jews!"

Bruce asked the crowd if they should finish Powerslave or go on to the next song, and after everyone screaming for both questions, they decided to not finish the last chorus of Powerslave and move on.
