Such a fucking great show, wish you were there Bucho

Hot dang, me too mate. A couple of weeks ago I just listened to Let Love In front to back 3 times in the same day, then the next day gave Henry's Dream its first spin in way too long.

It's way too long since I saw him do his thing live.

My June:

 

U2/Lumineers

Tool/Once & Future Band

Iron Maiden/Ghost

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Metallica/Avenged Sevenfold/Local H/Mix Master Mike

Iron Maiden/Ghost (this time, in Houston)

 

I was hoping to see Rammstein tonight, but I'm sick and the setlist is completely the same from when I saw them last year (not that that stopped from seeing Maiden twice in a week...).

That one is a gem.

I was at that Iron Maiden show in Houston last week.

Believe it or not, aside from seeing John Carpenter last summer and Goblin at House of Blues three years ago, that was my first ever legit arena-style concert.

Ghost was alright. I'm not really sold on the vocals, but I dug the fuck out of the theatricality.

Iron Maiden, however......just GODDAMN! I hope to have even half the energy those guys did when I get to that age.

Awesome.  One of my best friends now lives outside of Houston, so he lured me down there with Maiden tickets.  I'm in the fanclub, so I won early entry (the same for the Chicago show), so I was right up front and center.  I got a few of the guys to point me out.  Bruce actually threw the banana at me during "Death or Glory," but a person much taller caught it.  I almost caught one of Nicko's wristbands at the end of the night too.

 

I loved the show.  The only big issue for me was that guy Bruce lectured at the end of the night.  He really wanted to be in the front row, so he got pretty violent with people, including me.  He punched me right in the back, hoping I would move during "The Trooper."  Plus, he almost knocked over some kid during "Fear of the Dark" and other people had to restrain the father from beating the guy up.  

 

Oh, and some guy threw up about an hour before Ghost played.  It was right by the barricade, and it stunk terribly.  Thankfully, the arena's staff was really cool about it; one guy came and cleaned it up.

Damn. I was actually pretty close to the stage, but I fortunately missed out on that BS, though the remnants of that banana came pretty close to me. Also had a small mosh pit break out a few feet from me, which was pretty amusing to watch as this stern-faced mom attempted to shield her 12-year-old son from getting the shit kicked out of him.

They drew a damn diverse crowd, across all ages, which was pretty great to see.

Yeah, the crowds have definitely gotten younger.  When I saw them in 2005, I was pretty close; there was a smattering of young people, but it wasn't noticeable.  That's changed a lot.

Glad that Maiden delivered.  I was tempted to go when they were here a week or so ago, but the setlist just wasn't grabbing me.  I know that they want to play newer songs but I'd have preferred OTHER newer songs than what they actually played.  To each their own, though.

Its good to hear that Maiden still bring it.

Sorry, Judas.  Missed this one.

 

Maiden's album tours will definitely depend on your opinion on that particular album.  They often go all-out with them.  I personally like The Book of Souls, and thought the songs went down pretty well.  The title track got a great response both times, and "If Eternity Should Fail" is a pretty cool opener (Maiden's first song in drop D, funnily enough).  

 

I would assume Minny should be seeing more shows in the future.  It's a shame they hadn't come there in such a long time, unless you count that Cadot, Wisconsin show a few years back (I'm not sure how far away that is exactly).  The Minny show sold out quickly, by the way.

 

The rumor for the next tour is a greatest hits-type thing, maybe one that revolves around the soundtrack for the new video game.  It could all-encompassing, possibly a tour that hits most (if not all) albums.  Plus, they might be in the studio by the end of the year, so I wouldn't be surprised to see a new single get some play too.  They debuted "Wildest Dreams" and "El Dorado" on tours like that because the albums hadn't been released yet.

Saw Queen + Adam Lambert on Friday night.  It looks like they're only playing 'It's Late' on about half of the concerts and...sure enough...they didn't play it for us.  While I was disappointed over that omission, the rest of the concert was flat out AWESOME.  It was very high energy with a very enthusiastic band playing to a very enthusiastic crowd.   Brian was ON, Adam was having fun, and the band itself was pretty tight.   Add in a fun stage and a pretty killer light show and it really was a great experience.  I'd put this in my top 5 concerts, actually.

 

I'll post pictures later on.

Heck yes JB, Brian May is such a damn delight to behold in his element up there on stage blasting out those magical riffs of his, and Adam is a ton of fun as a front man. Stoked you got to see them do their thing.

There's not a lot in this world that makes me smile as much as hearing (or reading) someone so excitedly speak about a great concert experience. So very genuine, that the words just seem to fly out at 100mph. It really seems to be one of the few things that brings out genuine childish (I use this term in a positive way) glee in even the oldest fuckers like myself.

Truly glad to hear that enthusiasm still exists in others, even on the internet. And glad you had such a great time IM!

ETA: Ditto to your Queen experience also Judas!

Some pics from Queen + Adam Lambert on Friday:

 

First off, we were on the floor.  The stage was designed to look like a guitar, and there was a small stage on the middle of the floor where the 'neck of the guitar' ended.  We were pretty close to that smaller stage, so I got some good shots from my vantage point of the band when they came out there.

 

I'm really pleased with this one.  Trying to time shots when other people weren't in the way often resulted in not having a lot of time to get the focus right, so unfortunately Brian is a tad blurry, but the lighting here is awesome.

 

 

Some others:

 

 

 

 

 

For the encore, Brian came out wearing a MN Wild hockey jersey.  Needless to say, the crowd went nuts.

Its cool that they worked in the robot from the News of the World album cover in the show.

I was up in the seats, so I didn't get many pictures worth sharing, but that was a great show. They played nearly everything I wanted them to play, with the exception of "It's Late". The Freddie Mercury "cameo" during "Love of my Life" was fantastic.

I'm seeing these guys tonight in Sydney.  This is actually a bucket list concert for me - they're known as "the concept kings" (for context, this was part of a 3-EP concept trilogy they did that revolved around the Greek Gods).
