By arenas here in the USA, I mean basketball and hockey arenas that hold 15,000-20,000 people. Do you think Maiden has gained enough popularity here where they could do a full 30-40 city tour and either sell out or come close to selling out every show? I think they have.

Only because they sold out Toronto and came close in Cleveland do I say yes. I think there's probably a lot of people like me who would go to every show within a reasonable vicinity, too.

Absolutely, that's barely arguable. Don't know about sold out, but arena tours? They're pretty damned close.

Why? The sound is far worse and the "front row" is twenty feet from the stage and impossible to get a ticket for anyway.

I loved the sound at Irvine when i saw them. Plus they bring more explosions and fireworks to outdoor venues. And the stage isn't that far. I'm talking outdoor amphitheaters not like huge metal festivals like Wacken. Amphitheaters have stages that are just as far away as arenas do.

As for the ticket thing, it works that way wherever they play.

No way man. I've been only a few feet from Maiden a couple of times in the past. This is mostly impossible in outdoor theaters and the like.

Also, I voted yes. It might not sell out, but it would be damn successful.

Honestly?

Absolutely. I have no doubt in my mind that the arena in Kansas City, the Sprint Center, would sell extremely well if Iron Maiden did a show there.

Of course they could. They would just need a solid package to go with them. They sold out her in Florida and I know tons of people who wanted to go.
