    Pretty poor… bad sound, bad lights, no screens, and no hits!

    Eddie made an appearance, which was pretty good

    Couldn’t disagree more. Sound was good I think, bass was a touch loud (I suppose Steve is the boss of the band mind you) and Bruce was sometimes drifting in and out (though this is down to his mic technique more than anything else)
    Lighting was decent enough. I’m there for music not to look at the bright flashy things anyway.

    No hits? Wrathchild, Iron Maiden, Hallowed Be Thy Name, Running Free, Fear Of The Dark. What do you call them?

    Someone is obviously upset because they didn’t play Run To The Hills and The Trooper for the eventy-millionth time!

    Other than Sweet Savage (sorry they were awful) I thought it was a belting gig! Nice to hear them play some newer material instead of just being a nostalgia act and playing a greatest hits set at ever single bloody gig.

    Oh, and no screens is nothing to do with Maiden, that’s down to the venue. Screens are normally only for festivals and massive stadiums. At a venue like the o2 (10K capacity I think?) it’s not necessary.

    No hits? Perhaps it wasn’t the gig for those who know Maiden by their radio play or chart singles – more a fan’s gig?

    I was expecting more from them… for me the show really started when they played Iron Maiden and the encore was strong enough. I expected more of that.

    Sound was pretty poor, I like the bass mind you, and to me that was about the only highlight. Steve Harris can really keep the rhythm section going on his own.

    3 guitarists and at times the solo’s were indistinguishable from the rest of the music. The curtains in the back reminded me of a secondary school theater production. And when you have a stage that blocks the view for half the people on the ground floor, screens should be a must. I was at a 45 degree angle from the stage on the ground floor, normally an OK angle to watch a concert, and I couldn’t see the drum kit at all. I had to move pretty much to the centre to be able to see anything at all!

    The production to me seemed a bit cheap… and no, this is not the first concert that I have gone to

    Perhaps I was expecting more from Iron Maiden. A big production from a big band. This definitely wasn’t

    And yes, I missed 2 minutes to midnight, the trooper and run to the hills… I had never seen them before, and I don’t think I will see them again. More than half the people there were first timers. And I am sure more than one left the venue thinking like me.

    Yeah, seen em plenty of times before and this is the first time i came away feeling hard done by. Maiden are a band who are lucky enough to have a wide fanbase, which has grown in large part, due to their older hits being featured in video games, skate films etc, which really helps bring in a young audience. when you go see a band like this, eg, slayer, metallica, megadeth, you get to hear all the classics, with maybe 3 songs from the newest album. And in relation to the screens, ACDC had them , and that wasnt a festival.
