Iron Maiden concert next Friday
So Iron Maiden's new album is out. Got my pre-ordered copy with DVD and shirt weeks ago, around the time I picked up four tickets for their show in the Continental Airlines Arena on Friday the 13th of this month. Since then some people's schedules have changed, plans that were being made didn't come through, and other outside factors decided to muddy the waters.

There's one or two people I've offered up first dibs to a ticket (petemagyar and mrfantasy), and there's others who might be interested (jenniever's sister). But I'd like to see if there's anyone out there who would be game and would have a great time.

It's not their best album in my eyes yet, but it's still growing on me. Brave New World, the first album since Bruce rejoined, blew me away as ranking up there with the stuff from the late eighties. Dance of Death had a song or two that failed to get me at first, but a number of songs that even beat its predecessor. Despite the positive US reaction to A Matter of Life and Death, I still haven't sunk into it fully and given it the attention it's due.

So yeah, if you're game, let me know. I'll figure out who I've talked to in the past is going, and make things happen.

SIR!

I'd love to go with ya, though I don't think there's any way I can make it out there.

Google says it would take you fifteen hours. You have two-hundred and forty.

Sorry dude, I'm learning WebWork on the job and that will take WAY more than 240 hours, plus I might be in Atlanta next week.

Wow, I DEFINITELY didn't expect that to be longer...

It's only slightly longer distance-wise, but it's less of a straight shot. Sure, it's 85 and 95 for a while, but you're zig-zagging a bit. The Wisconsin trip is going down to Chicago, and taking 80 to NJ. Wham.

Anyway, next time.

Same opinion on the album - good, but hasn't blown me away yet.

The nearest show is on a Wednesday night 2 hours away and I just dropped a stupid amount of money on (unrelated) plane tickets. I might go anyway, though.

Most tours I hit two or three shows, but this time I'm only going to one. That's my cutting back based on the album. :-)

I'll go! If you still have tickets, that is...
