Ya its 1375. Was 1150 for the early bird tickets but they sold out almost a month back!!

Really hope Opeth doesnt play too much from their Heritage album!! Setlist isnt finalised but they said in an interview that they will mix things up a bit.

Do check out the Sam Dunn documentary "Beyond The Lighted Stage" for a very affectionate and utterly enthralling look at the band- it wil make you fall in love with the band again!
Woohooo! Just "bought" the documentary. Lovely stuff. Though listened to metal, hard rock for around 18 years or so, I only recently started listening to Rush. Somehow kept pushing them away for all these years. Great band!

Anyone seen the movie - Suck? Love the soundtrack and have been looking to get it but unable to lay my hands on it anywhere except iTunes.

Bought 3 tickets last week for the Opeth concert but have won 2 free tickets from Kingfisher this week!

If anyone interested, do PM me but note that it is tickets bought from BookMyShow and therefore, you will need to meet me at the venue to collect the ticket from me.

Yeah, I've been waiting to preorder this album. Is it available in Landmark?

Last time I was so excited that I blindly ordered the most expensive variant of The Final Frontier and ended up receiving an LP. Then I had to beg a friend, borrow his CD and convert it to MP3. Well, no piracy there :-D

The iron maiden site says, release is planned for Mar 26 2012.
It will be some time before its release. I am not too hopeful of the album.
In fact the studio album was a let down to me. Lets hope this turns out to be good.

I thought AMOLAD was better than The Final Frontier by far, but some of my Maidenhead friends say that FF reminds them of the old Maiden :S

No idea how. IMO, AMOLAD is probably one of the best Maiden albums.

The 7 albums I think are by-far the best of Maiden.

Iron Maiden, Killers, Number of the Beast, Piece of Mind, Power Slave, SIT and SSSS.


BNW was a competent comeback in 2000. I liked the Rock in Rio for the energy.
DoD has some standout-out tracks : Paschendale for one.

AMOLAD was to me too long and with many fillers. In fact that was the main reason, why the first seven very good. Hardly any fillers.
AMOLAD was also progressive a bit. For that age, those guys were amazing

Who could imagine that after releasing Number of the beast, one could do such a strong album as Piece of Mind.

Exactly. I like the energy of the first few albums (probably SSOASS would be my favourite), but I love the progressive, conscious movement towards a more mature sound in AMOLAD. I know a lot of old-school Maiden fans did not like it, but I'm not an old-school Maiden fan, so it worked out for me.

Also, I wouldn't count any tracks on AMOLAD as filler. My favourite song on the album (apart from Benjamin Breeg) would be the last one, which is the longest and has a long intro.

Agreed, filler may not be the right word. Just that some songs were too long, and many parts were repeated multiple times.

I got onto Maiden through BNW which was also progressive compared their original albums.
I found them to be much much better than the then current metal albums.
(Those guys are really aging with grace)

It took some to listen to the original maiden albums. But once got hooked, there was no turning back.
