Maiden Oz – Fri 5th March, the Basement

Jim Jones 1 March 2010 14

Australia’s premiere Iron Maiden tribute band, live at The Basement, Belconnen, Friday 5th March: Doors at 8pm, $15 entry.

A huge set featuring all the Maiden classics, a special guest, and maybe even the odd sea shanty (Maiden fans will know what I mean).

A final note: the last Maiden Oz gig sold out very early, and there were a couple of ‘incidents’, with at least one latecomer assaulting the doorpeople in a remarkably stupid attempt to gain entry. If the band discovers that anything like this happens again, not only will you be denied entry, but I’ll make it my personal mission to ensure that you never see any metal shows in Canberra again … except for Stryper!

No, borderline, no.

Meh.

It’s pretty telling that none of those songs have been on the Maiden setlist for almost a decade.

It’s sad for Blaze, but Maiden hit a definite low point that included the 2 albums he recorded with them.

The recent return to form, starting with Brave New World, has been awesome and outshines anything that they produced during Blaze’s tenure (and immediately prior: Fear of the Dark and No Prayer for the Dying). It’s understandable that most people harken back to the glory days (everything up to and including Seventh Son), but IMHO the last 3 albums deserve much more respect than they generally get.

Nope.

Can’t think of anything from those albums that anyone wants to listen to, to tell you the truth.

Surely the singer sounds like Bruce anyway. As an aside Flight 666 is the best Blu Ray I have purchased in a while.

Oh well, nuts to that. I would only see them for shits and giggles anyway. Friday night should be great though. I really like the Basement, it brings back memories of when i was 16 sneaking into pubs with a firecracker permit as ID, my feet stuck to the floor then as they do now. Ahhh memories.
