The videos included. The fans there probably waited longer at the airport than a lot of people would wait outside the venue (not including most of the people on this site).

Ah right! Yeah I guess Americans just don't do that. I know I'm leaving my house at noon and it takes 2hours and 45minutes to get to the Venue, and with Doors at 7pm I'll be there for 5hrs atleast. If I could, I would drive down today and meet them at the Airport, but I have class today, so I'm out haha.

I bet a few people will be there atleast.

I hate when people argue this. Sure, to be honest I'll go see Maiden no matter what they're playing, I just think Maiden love to take the easy way out with their set lists, and this is a perfect example. I've seen Maiden 4 times now, and I've been fortunate enough to see Maiden on two actual album tours (AMOLAD and Dance of Death), so I have managed to see 36 different Maiden songs, which is great. But if I had managed to see them on the Give Me Ed, Early Years, and the second leg of this tour, you really would have seen many of the same songs over and over again, which I think is unfair to the fans, especially when they're paying as much for tickets as Maiden's are.

but $44.50 for Maiden is not that much at all lol. God Knows Metallica makes you shell out more, and even Megadeth makes you drop $35. I was surprised at the cost.

How much was merch btw?

You got good Maiden tickets for $44.50!?

Every time I've seen them, good (GA pit) tickets were $65 and up. The Izod show in March 2008 came to nearly $100 total, I think they were like $75-80 plus almost $15 of shitty charges.

All Maiden t-shirts are $35. There will be about a dozen different designs, give or take. XXLs will costs an extra $5 ($40 total). I can't say for sure what anything else costs because I only bought t-shirts on this tour. I know they sell Longsleeves, hoodies, jerseys, hats, scarves, beanies, and a few other misc. non-clothing items. Just about everything is considerably over-priced.

yeah My ticket cost 44.50 with all extra charges around $54-55. And thanks for telling me about the merch! Really need to know how much money to bring!

But yeah, the most I've spent on a GA Floor Ticket was at Mayhem Fest, and that was $70.50.

Ah, according to Ticketmaster, the GA Floor tickets for this were $59.50, which makes a bit more sense. I'm actually surprised that they're not more, being the obvious extreme demand for tickets to this.
