Been giving their album a listen on Spotify. Diggin' it!
I went to Crue and Coops. Their Brisbane support band, Hammerhead, were really good. Alice was really good. Three quarters of Motley Crue were really good, Vince not so much. Also, Tommy's drum thing didn't work - went up for about six feet, stopped and then came back down.
A good night though.
Haha Tommy's drum kit rollercoaster must have ended up like Spinal Tap's Stonehenge. Vince's voice is pretty shit.
That's the fourth time I've seen something go wrong at a gig at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre:
Kiss - Gene didn't fly up to the platform but just hung in mid-air for a few seconds and then came back down - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tMvE6zS4hE
Kiss again (different show) - Gene and Tommy were standing on platforms which were supposed to rise up and then go out over the crowd but only one of them did
Aerosmith - the drum riser moved forward along some tracks and almost ran over an unsuspecting photographer who got his foot caught and fell down.
Probably some others that I've seen but can't remember.
I would have gone if it was just Alice. I almost did when the tickets were down to $60 the week before, but by that time I had other plans.
Wacken for me in 3 weeks, woop.
I was looking at going because of the Savatage reunion - yes, I would have gone purely for that - but luckily for me I couldn't get tickets on the day they went on sale. A good thing because there was no way I could afford to go after doing Donington three years in a row.
I bought tickets from viagogo at a decent price. The overall lineup is one of the weakest they've ever had I think, but due to work and the time of year etc, this is likely the only time I will ever be able to go, so thought I should go for it. I am basically only going for Running Wild. Fucking love me some Running Wild!
Hellfest and Graspop won the lineup competition this year. They both looked great, but I wasn't able to go to either.
I got tickets for Wacken next year to celebrate my 30th.
Let us know how ya went this year Blitzkrieg - be very interested to hear how it all went!
It's my 40th next year and I want to do something special for it, but it looks like it will just involve going to work and maybe having KFC that night. I've been spending far too much money on travel and such and am under a mountain of debt. Boo.
Yeah pretty average lineup this year, despite the number of bands. Only maybe half a dozen that I'd pay to see if they toured here.
You live the high life too much, Spiffo!
So, Maiden are returning next May. That's one to look forward to!
Yup! I'll be doing Sydney and possibly Melbourne. Kind of thinking of doing the full Australian tour, actually, but it depends on finances. Probably won't happen.
If they mixed up their setlists like Metallica do I would rock the whole tour. Since they don't, Melbourne only for me.
I'm toying with the idea of doing the NZ dates instead of the non-Brisbane shows. I was also toying with China but that might be stretching things a bit.
I like the fact that I've seen Maiden eight times but only twice in Brisbane.
It would be cool to see them in another international city.
I'd be more likely to do multiple shows if they mixed up their setlist too. If it's essentially the same then maximum two would be enough. It's always interesting to see bands in different cities though.
Anyone got gigs to see in the glut in the next couple of months? I was meant to see Bolt Thrower in late September, but the drummer died so they had to cancel. Next week is Helloween, and on the 30th is At The Gates.
I've got Megadeth coming up and plan to see Alestorm, possibly Uncle Acid.
I have to go o/s for work and fitted it around Helloween, then Megadeth announced the tour for the following week. Have a miss out. Oh well.
