A suite is like a mini-hotel room with a wet bar (byob) couches, and at the end of the room, it's wide open with about 3 rows of a dozen private seats. Oh, and a private bathroom. We were directly stage-right (so much so that we could barely see Niko, and we could see a little bit back stage).

    Seeing Maiden was at the top of my bucket list since I was in Jr. High and the experience was nothing short of amazing for me. And yes, the guitar solo Powerslave was the pinnacle moment for me! That song contains one of my favorite guitar solos of all time.

    Here are some photos of the experience along with most of "Powerslave" (audio - the quality is poor, but I figured I'd share it anyway. It was recorded up in the suite so at least there weren't a thousand screaming fans near the mic!)

    I missed them at Download this year hoping they would announce some UK dates like they did the last time they played at Download so you can imagine how disappointed I was when it was indeed the only UK date they played I'm hoping they will add the UK in 2017 as I think the new album is awsome bit of old and new Maiden together and well put together

    The Book of Souls is a masterpiece, without a doubt.

    I've seen them only once on this tour and it was on Wacken. Sadly, the sound was awful, and that's an understatement. They were the highlight of this years Wacken. Actually, seeing them on Wacken was one of my dreams ever since I was a teenager and the whole experience was ruined, to say at least. I started trying to push my way through to the front rows, but when I heard the sound I was so sad and disappointed that I gave up and just stood there in rain and mud, numb.
    Whose fault it was - I cannot say for sure, I am no expert, but I am 90% certain it was the festivals fault, because other bands had bad sound (but not as bad as IM). Since that was the last show on the tour, that whole day is very blurry because I tried to forget about it

    Before this disaster, I've only seen them 5 times, but that'll soon change
    Feel free to add me: Rusalka-6140
    I'm a daily player, with a Child of the Damned (level 11 so far) set as a Champion. Every Trooper can feel free to message me and ask me to change the Champion
    The game crashes every (almost every) single time I try to use a fellow Trooper, so please know that I'm trying to be a good Trooper, but it's impossible with this bug.
    I do my best to pray/curse/swear/plead the game to let me finish a level
