IRON MAIDEN IS AWESOME
Me and my family came from Bakersfield CA to see Iron Maiden. For me it was the 4th time, my husband 2nd and my 14yr son first time. The concert did not disappoint as usual. Bruce Dickenson has the energy of a younger man and a voice that resonates with such power. The band was flawless and they did not miss a beat. The stage display of Eddie on banners was incredible. At one point Eddie came walking out on stilts as the crowd cheered on for more. We wanted to hear more of their songs. It was annoying to have Bruce's mic cutting out. This man's astounding voice has to be heard by all. A must see band. It was our first time at the Oracle. Our seats were upper level but it wasn't too bad. You could still the stage. We can't ignore Ghost's performance either as it was very good.

IRON MAIDEN AUGUST 1, 2019
Iron Maiden, August 1, 2019 Massachusetts. Bruce spoke very little tonight between songs, which seemed a bit out of character for him. I actually look forward to his rants. Anyway, they did a safe, classic playbook setlist. No room for the obscure songs or "deep cuts" at this show.

IRON MAIDEN LEGACY OF THE BEAST
We've been seeing Maiden as often as possible for more years than we can count. Every time was a highlight. But the concert at Mansfield, Ma, last night was the best ever. Maiden never disappoints. Bruce was at the top of his game! It was sold out, and worth much more than the price of admission! I wish I could see them again tonight! The energy, the euphoria! Everyone around us was totally engaged in the experience and singing at the top of their lungs. It was a Maiden crowd. Everyone in concert shirts going way back. Who needs drugs? Iron maiden is the best drug on the planet, and it's totally legal. I've been teaching for 50 years, and I still play Maiden in my classroom, just for me, early every morning. I met one of my students there last night. It's a great way to communicate between the generations! Maiden's catalogue is also so cerebral: the myth of Daedalus and Incarus, for instance, "The Ancient Mariner", not played last night, ptobably because of length. Iron Maiden is the soundtrack of my life. I can't wait for the next tour!

2019. LIKE A FINE WINE THESE GUYS
First saw Iron Maiden in 1987. They never disappoint. Have seen them several times since. Always a first class act with good production. Normally they have about ten times the PA system they need in order to make sure that the folks in the next county can hear the show. Not so much this evening. It was plenty loud but your ears didn’t bleed and your couldn’t watch your clothes shake from the sound. This was the best I’ve ever heard them. Bruce sang better than 30 years ago. The sound was spot on. The whole thing Was brilliant. In a time when aging bands are showing some rust, it seems Iron Maiden haven’t even begun to start kicking our asses. Up the irons!

Good show. Really wished they played more of old stuff. It was hot as heck, felt like AC went out

GREAT SHOW, BUT A FEW SNAGS
Maiden put on an epic show, but unfortunately Bruce's mic kept cutting out at key moments. You would have thought they would have fixed it, but like a "Trooper," he pressed on with the show, switching back to the microphone stand several times. Unfortunately, even the mic stand wouldn't do what he wanted. He kicked it with his foot a couple of times and it had a mind of its own, either staying in place or going the opposite direction that he wanted. The arena was still cold from hockey, so the A/C was on full blast (we were under a vent), and Bruce said something about it. He came out wearing a hoodie and khakis and said for them to turn off the "blizzard." Once the A/C stopped, it got warm, but that didn't matter because IRON "FUCKING" MAIDEN was on stage, and kicked our collectives asses. Thanks you, Maiden, and please come back to Nashville. On a side note, Ghost was pretty good, I'd heard some bad reviews about them, but I thought they did okay. Eat at Jack's BBQ.

MAIDEN IN OAKLAND
Great show from Maiden last night! My crew and I were dead center on the floor in front of the band about 20 to 30 rows back. Not actual rows because it was General admission but I'm just estimating. Anyway it seemed to me that Bruce's voice was shot after about 6 or 7 songs and that sent the band into longer jams. I know to some it may have seemed like a mic problem but I'm pretty sure it was Bruce and I felt bad for him because he would mouth the first parts of the verse so he could save his voice for the latter parts. Regardless Maiden was on fire! The jams on Red and the Black and Book of Souls were very intense and they went on and on to my drunk and stoned pleasure. I wasn't that thrilled with the encores that consisted of Number, Blood Brothers, and Waysted Years but the set as a whole was very good. I thought the crowd would be a little more violent because of Oakland's image but I didn't see any crazy pit fights or over aggressive play. Nikko was on point behind the drums!
