Iron Maiden -- San Bernardino, CA -- June 19th, 2010

source: I was there and bootlegged it. Will be uploading to youtube tomorrow

01. The Wicker Man
02. Ghost Of The Navigator
03. Wrathchild
04. El Dorado
05. Paschendale
06. The Reincarnation Of Benjamin Breeg
07. These Colours Don't Run
08. Blood Brothers
09. Wildest Dreams
10. No More Lies
11. Brave New World
12. Fear Of The Dark
13. Iron Maiden
Encore
14. The Number of the Beast
15. Hallowed Be Thy Name
16. Running Free

This was my 2nd time seeing Maiden so I got no complaints about the set list. I just would've preferred BTATS over Wrathchild and DOD over Paschendale but they're all great songs. Would have been nice if they played The Evil That Men Do, Stranger In A Strange Land, Wasted Years or for rare shit Mother Russia or Sea Of Madness instead of the classics that they did play. To my surprise people actually went nuts over Wrathchild and there was no booing as far as I remember. Just one dude behind me yelled "what the fuck?!" at the end because he thought they were going to do another encore because the stage had been dark for about 2 minutes after Running Free. Seemed like everybody else thought so too cuz they all stuck around. Of course thanks to this site, I knew better.

Rod came out and announced that the band decided to delay the show until 9:30 instead of 9:00 since so many people were still getting in.

The sound was LOUD!!! Almost too loud to the point where it gets distorted a bit.

Was very happy with my seats! Just left of center a few rows in front of the sound boards. Thanks fanclub pre-sale!

The backdrops were just plain awesome!

It was very cool when Bruce dedicated Blood Brothers to RJD.

Bruce mentioned 25,000 in attendance. Seemed like more to me.

I hated the fact that some assholes were lighting fires in the lawn as the smell was acrid and unpleasant.

Glad I brought pennies with me! Some dude 2 rows in front of us decided to stand on his seat. After he got hit in the head with a few pennies, he got down and later sat and left early.

Did anyone else see that owl flying over the crowd during the encores? It came up from behind the stage and looked damn cool!

Dream Theater were quite impressive and loud as well!

And I loved the fact that we got PASCHENDALE! I'd take that over DOD anytime!

The line to get in was soooooooo long! Holy shit! I've never been in a line that long!

Left my son in line and went to the merch stand to get my shirt. Nice selection of merch!

We left right after HBTN because I feared getting out of the parking lot was going to be hell. Once we got to the car (long fucking walk) it took 3 minutes to be on the freeway!

Any idea how many people in attendance? Was this their first time HEADLINING this venue? I read on another site people speculating that this could be their largest US headlining show ever.

The paperless line was pretty short it just seemed to move sooo slow! I got there late though and didnt make it to the pit until DT played Constant in Motion. I was really bummed out that I missed most of their set since I've never seen them before and has been looking forward to it. Oh well at least I wasn't one of the 1000 people outside the gate at 9 when Maiden was originally going to start. I thought the show was going to start at 8:30 or at 9 and that 7:30 was just when the gates opened.

Yeah the Dio dedication was sweet... Too bad I didn't record it

Damn I didn't see the owl... Would've liked to have seen that.

OMFG it took me like an hr to just get out of the parking lot... And I was in the vip section!

VIP parking gets you close to the venue entrance but far from the exit! Rip off if you ask me!

Too bad you missed most of DT. Mike Portnoy is one hell of a great drummer I must say! At least you got to see Panic Attack and Pull Me Under.

Was it just me or did the sound get louder and louder as the Maiden set went on?

I hate that place, as soon as they announced the tour I knew I was just going to write this one off. Thanks for the reports though, will look for You Tube stuff.

FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK!!!! where do I begin with this show?!

So me and Andrew got to the venue at around 11ish and only a couple of other cars were there. We easily made friends with a nice group of guys who would end up being our tailgating buddies for the remainder of the evening.

We got in line very early. around 12ish. We were waiting in line for about 40 mins when some guy said he won the FTTB draw. Andrew decided to check his (since they were late to send out the messages) and HE WON TOO! so we spent the next 4 hours or so in the parking lot with our newly found buddies with not a worry about lines.

We made it into the venue about 30 mins before anyone else and was perfect since I got the spot on the rail I wanted, a spot I would fight to keep tfor the remainder of the show.

Dream Theater were a great way to start the show, but I must say, theirset kinda dragged a bit. After a while I just started thinking to myself, they should just end this and bring out Maiden. But the last two songs were great so I was happy with their set over all.

After a long wait, Doctor Doctor came over the PA. I was ready to see god come before me. I went nuts! When Adrian came out to play the intro chords to Wickerman, I just lost it, physically and emotionally. Watching Dave Murray and Adrian Smith from just a few feet away was something I will remember for the rest of my life.

The set was amazing. Song after song just kept coming and I was there, in the front, somewhere i never thought I would be at an Iron Maiden concert. During Wildest Dreams, the band all started out right in front of me. There they were together, Bruce, Dave, Adrian, and Steve right fucking there! Words cannot describe the feeling, you have to be there and experience it for yourself.

Through all the amazing songs of the night, Paschendale, Brave New World, These Colors Don't Run, Wickerman, and my favorite song of all time, Hallowed Be Thy Name, all of which I was very excited to see and hear live, I must say Blood Brothers was the highlight of the show for me. hearing 23000+ people sing that song live altogether is something to see. Plus, it was a great feeling to hear that song on the rail at a Maiden concert next to Andrew, someone who has accompanied me to many many concerts in the past, and the one person I would want by my side on the rail at a Maiden show. I don't care where your from, or who you came out of, I will always see you as a brother my friend

I wish it could have lasted forever though, but everything comes to an end, even this. I must say that was the most amazing 2 hours of my entire life. My dream of seeing Maiden from the first row was fulfilled last night. I can die happy now.

(By the way sorry if this review had a shit ton of grammar errors, I just woke up and still feeling the show.)
