I find it hard narrowing it down. They are up there though. Powerslave has some of the best metal songs on it. Rime of the Ancient Mariner :datass: :datass: :datass:

One of us friends got Hallowed Be Thy Name played as the penultimate song at me and me Mrs' wedding. And I'm very greatful for that. It's veryitably cool to have Iron Maiden at your wedding day.

Specially when your close friends are all air guitaring and headbanging with you.

I love my wife.

Concert tonight, I'm actually starting to feel excited.

Don't even know what the set list is. I hope it is good. Fairly sure they will be playing Aces High, seen the Spitfire prop.

I'm gutted I'm not seeing them this tour. The stage and set list look amazing.

Probably the best time I've seen them. There was only two songs that I felt like they shouldn't have played. Everything else was great. They actually played The Trooper as well, which was a real surprise given they skipped it last time.

They played two out of my top three Maiden tracks. I can't complain.

Seen them in Belfast tonight too.

Absolutely splendid. 8th time I've seen them since 2006, 7th unique tour, probably the best. Setlist, Stage Show, Band all on absolutely wonderful form. Couldn't ask for better.

You strawberry floating guys, man. I'm so jealous.

In fact, we're so jealous that my wife was literally about to buy tickets for Birmingham on Tuesday... but it's sold out :cry:

Aces High, man. Aces High :cry: We decided not to buy tickets when they released because I was quitting my job at the time and we wanted to be careful with money. What a shitty decision that turned out to be.

Everything about that song was amazing! I didn't think Bruce could pull off the vocals to it but holy gooseberry fool the man has been reborn.

We caught the end of them, when they played Holy Diver. Good stuff.

Enjoy man!

Got home at literally 2 minutes to midnight!

What an incredible set. Iron Maiden completely outdid themselves and I'd say that was the best gig I've ever been to. Period. It's incredible to think they're all 60 and performing like that.

Also, it was Bruce's birthday today and the crowd interrupted his only bit of speaking to sing Happy Birthday, unprompted. Which felt really strawberry floating nice.

The set list was excellent bar two songs. They played 2 out of 3 of my favourite songs. Best Maiden show I've been to.

Janice Gers prancing around is endlessly entertaining. I get some people don't like him, but I love him. One point he threw his guitar on the ground and stood on it, Bruce was like 'is that in tune?' :lol:
