It's also the biggest club we've got for shows here in terms of not only building size but capacity as well. So while it seems small they actually are playing the biggest venue they can here outside of the HSBC arena or the Darien Lake amphiteater.

I know that Maiden fans love the first two albums but there just isn't that much interest to see Di'Anno at all. He just never made enough of a name for himself after he left them for a lot of people to care. As much as I love Maiden if he came to my city I wouldn't even bother seeing him. I can hear all the Maiden tunes he's doing right now done better by Bruce on all the Maiden live stuff I have anyways.
Ya. If I went to see him, the main reason would be just to say that I saw him. Maiden is my most favorite metal band of all time and it'd be cool and kind of historic to see a part of them.

Iron Maiden only plays a few weeks worth of shows in the U.S. because they don't have the drawing power to fill arenas for months on end coast to coast such as Metallica. Also keep in mind a lot of the people at Maiden shows are drawn in by the cool T-shirt designs and probably don't even know many songs so it's a tough situation for Paul Di'Anno to capitalize on.

It may be a totally different fan base, many of my friends at the Redondo show wouldn't even bother with a Maiden show these days.

Maiden stated that around 2003, they wanted to cut back on touring so I think that's why they haven't played huge USA tours. I bet they've regained enough popularity to play a full 30-40 city USA arena tour to sell out or come close to selling out every show.
