Sound: The singer (Bruce Dickinson)was great, even tough he is over 50 years old, he sings even better than he used to, the band consisted of 3 guitarists, a drumer, a bass guitarist and the singer, the instruments were well tuned, great effects and overall good sounding, the singer sang extremely well. The Music's quality was good apart from some microphone-problems, throughout the concert the singer's mic had a few problems keeping the same volume, this was not the band's fault but the fault of the people working on speakers pf the stadium, the problems were minimal so they didn't bother anybody. // 10

Perfomance: The audience didn't like the show, they loved it, the music was brilliant, and the show and speacial effects were unbelievable. Iron Maiden played their most known songs such as Aces High, great lyrics, great song everybody sang along at the top of their voice. Run To The Hills, a very good song, great guitar and an unbelievable solo. The Trooper: this great song had the whole stadium jumping around. Fear Of The Dark, this was one of the 2 most succesful songs, everyone sang along the crowd clapped, jumped, screamed and whistled throughout the whole song. Hallowed Be Thy Name: This was the other most succesfull song, it was the perfect song to end the set. The show was amzing, during each song, the background changed, during "Number Of The Beast" There were flames and fireworks, the drumer's drum kit had a built in flame that burst every time the drumer played a beat. In the song "Iron Maiden" there was a huge sarcophagus in the back ground, in the middle of the song it opened up and an even bigger mummy came out leaning over the band, the guitarist strated leaning under the mummy's arms while playing with their guitars behind their heads. In the song called "The Clairvoyant" there was a robot, that was disguised to look like a monsterous character from one of the band's albums, it was truly impressive. // 10

Overall Impression: The concert took place in the "Eden Stadium" in Prague, Czech Republik. There was a very good Czech opening band for people who arrived early and at 7 PM Lauren Harris played, she wasn't good at all, infact she just made Iron Maiden look even better. The show was brilliant, with so much decoration, the singer made a joke or two, he even dedicated a few songs to people Who couldn't make it to the concert because of a train crash, I loved many things about the concert, music aside, at the en when the band started throwing picks and drumsticks into the crowd, the guitarist took his guitar, threw it and in the last miute caught it by it's strap, it made the antire audience of 40000 people laugh. I loved every bit of the show apart from the opener, Lauren Harris. The show was worth a thousand times the money I paid (25 Euros)to see it. I actualy will go and see them again, 4 days after this concert in prague in the Sziget Festival in Budapest, Hungary on the 12th of August. // 10
