Was that possibly in Dortmund?

Yes! Dortmund Westfahlen Halle. Stages, one at each end of the hall so only 15 minutes between bands .

Correction ,Gers was not playing. :facepalm:  I saw so many guitar players that night I must have imagined  the trio.


If it was the Piece of Mind tour, all but (I think) one song is on that DVD that I posted (obviously, just Maiden...not all those other acts).  Unfortunately, the missing track is Iron Maiden, which was when Eddie came out...and that particular show, they killed him!!  Beat the crap out of him...stomped on him....ripped the top of his head off....fun stuff!!  The good news is that footage does appear on another release (12 Wasted Years), which is included in History of IM part 3: Maiden England.

Lot of great music, and I am going to jump on the Powerslave bandwagon. Always loved that one from start to finish.

I have a great memory of English Lit class my senior year in high school, my teacher actually played Rime of the Ancient Mariner for the class. Cool teacher, huh? :haz:

I saw Paul live twice, 2004 and 2012...he´s a shadow of his former self, and acts like a prick. A guy came up on stage to hug him and he punched him in the face! Plus he doesn´t really have a band, he hires local musicians to play with him.

He lives in Rio, I think.  I've also seen him a couple times and he's always going on about how great it is down there.

I agree...he's definitely not what he was, but it's fun to see the first 2 albums performed.  He should really add Women in Uniform to the set!!

I think he actually lived in São Paulo for a long time, not Rio.

If Di'Anno remained Maiden's singer, I don't think they would still be around today. If they were, they certainly wouldn't be the most popular metal band in the world next to Metallica. I was never a big fan of his voice but it fit well with the material on their first two albums. I only knew Maiden with Bruce when I first got into them, so imagine my surprise when I got the cassette of Killers from a friend of mine and didn't hear the mighty Bruce Dickinson on vocals? This was in the early 90s, so the internet wasn't in everyone's home yet and there wasn't really anyway for me to know there was a singer before Bruce unless someone told me.

For a lot of years after that I didn't care for Killers because of how disappointed I was to hear there was someone else other than Bruce on vocals. I never listened to it because of that reason. As time went on, I gave the album a chance again and I do like it now. But their first two albums still rank at the bottom of the list for me because the material with Dickinson just blows that stuff away both musically and lyrically.

First two albums are excellent.  I much prefer them to the Dickinson albums, although those are pretty damn good too.

It just boggles my mind that anyone can prefer the first two albums over the Dickinson stuff. That is something I will never be able to wrap my head around. I guess some people like their Maiden to just be good rather than great.

Some of us like our metal closer to punk than opera :P

I never thought of Bruce as an opera singer. Hey, didn't they record The Phantom Of The Opera with the punk rock singer? ;)

I agree. And i also do not hear opera in Bruce's voice.

But then again, I heard Nightwish first. Now that IS opera.

Don't get me wrong, I prefer the Dickinson albums as much as most Maiden fans do, but for what it's worth I think the first two albums are awesome. Phantom Of The Opera's up there with the classic post-TNOTB songs IMO.

I agree with this as well.

But Bruce Dickinson era IM is just amazeballs.

Skip until you get to Brave New World. Awesome album. Proceed forwards. Be amazed!
