Sooo i'm seeing Iron Maiden in 4 sleeps time!

How ever its my first major concert and i have some questions.

Is it wrong to wear a Metallica t-shirt to an Iron Maiden concert?

Theres a barrier (railing type thing) between my section of the crowd, and the section in front of the stage. Whats a good way to distract the guards so i can leg it over with out being noticed?

How early should i arrive, will the lines be massive?

Also is there anything else i need to know that i might make it more enjoyable?

Thanks in advance.

The Dome is a pretty terrible place to get in and out of nevermind parking so whenever i go to a concert there i usually turn up early and get a bite to eat. The lines were massive at GnR as they were patting everyone down but ive been to others and its been fine.

In Perth you can pretty much wear anything and not get a comment (only time i have is wearing my Led Zep jacket in Yngwie and there were off their face) so you should be okay.

To make it more enjoyable stay away from the Burswood staff there... they have issues.

Well have fun anyway, i wish i was going but im on strike with the Dome if that makes sense
I'm gonna live forever and if I don't suceed i'll die trying.

Nothin wrong with a metallica shirt, although you'll find most kids wearing maiden shirts more so then other shows..at maiden gigs.

12 for me too! Can't wait!

Question for those who have been to these sorts of concerts - is there any way of smuggling a camera into the show? Am I likely to be patted down?

Cheers

If its 12 for you, you'll be seeing them in brisbane too. And yes, you will be patted down at the entrance. Although if you are desperate, just hide the camera inconspicuously in your pants.

Yeah, my bro and I are coming down to Brisbane.
Not desperate, but would love to get some pictures. It is Maiden after all!
A disposable camera is probably the way to go, so if they do find it it's no big deal.

Scream for me Brisbane!

Exactly. Sleeps? What kind of retard uses "sleeps" to denote time?

Anyway, If you have a maiden shirt wear it. Try and get in the pit, nicko throws his drumsticks out there.

Fuck yes.

Anyway what do you think about BCE opening for Maiden? I'm pretty pissed about it, but my friend knows them personally, and worships them almost, so now he's trying to get tickets haha.

Hey, by the way, are you seeing VR? Coz I'm trying to get to get tickets, and my friend thinks he can get us to see Slash haha.
