Iron Maiden Live Photos - 10/8/06

We're going to take it on the chill side today at The Metal Minute because there's a busy week coming up and I have a lot of preparation to do before the three-day weekend. So to honor a humbling request from a Metal Minute regular who wrote in about a week ago, today I'm going to share a bunch of photos of the Iron Maiden show from last October.

Those who used to read my old blog Pulses, Verses and Other Flotsam know this story quite well, and I'm not to recount it in full, but on this particular evening yours truly ventured 2.5 hours to a venue that shall remain nameless as the corrupt bastards that they are. Having interviewed Nicko McBrain the week prior for Caustic Truths magazine and thus fulfilling my personal goal to reach my all-time favorite metal band, Iron Maiden, it was doubly satisfying to be offered the opportunity to go up and catch one of the few U.S. shows they did last year, and be given a photo pass on top of it.

With time healing old wounds, I can relive the moment without the associated anger, but the venue had my photo pass but no actual ticket to the event. Sounds particularly weird, I know, but that's exactly what happened, and after much growling and holding sentry at the box office, I was eventually let inside but only to take photos for three songs. It turned out that my fate was the same as the rest of the photographers at the event, which were only four more than myself, so I take that into consideration in light of that night's events. Luckily, this was Iron Maiden, so three songs came out to 18 minutes on the nose. Moreover, as you can see in these photos, I was pretty much as close as the camera reveals, so it was humbling in itself to be in that position inside an arena right against the stage.

So despite the anger I felt on the drive home that night, the rush of being so close and having finally interviewed Iron Maiden eventually overrode what I felt towards the venue and having traveled so far for only 18 minutes worth of show time. As you can see though, I brought with me some of the best concert photos I've ever taken, and of Iron Maiden, no less. It's my privilege to share these with you and thank you amiga, for writing in and requesting these. Hope everyone enjoys them as much as you.

Those are some great photos, and the stage and set look pretty cool.

Too bad about the venue mishap.
