Oh and since the album is called "The Final Frontier" there better be some song titles like "Where No Man Has Gone Before", "Generations", "Engage" and "Make It So."

Really demoncleaner? I wish they'd treat their home fans with something like that! Last time I went to a Maiden show it was Trivium and Lauren Harris supporting. First time I saw them Funeral For A Friend were the opening band and the last time they played here Avenged Sevenfold supported. I didn't go.

Monk24, I feel your pain bro. It seems that big acts steer clear of Philly. Last tour I saw them twice, in north jersey and in camden. It was only an hour and a half ride and they'll be at the same place this time. I love Maiden, they're the best! Hopefully this isn't they're last album. It's gonna be awesome!! Up the Irons!!

I loved Maiden since I was a girl, pics plastered all over my walls of Eddie, and distant places in my mind, with words of wrath screaming from my ole' Toshiba! I seen them last time they were here in the Peg, and they still give me shivers!! I just wish they would play outdoors at the stadium...that would rock! They were great indoors at the MTS, but outdoors would be extremely breathtaking

Hate to say it Dee but you'll probably have to get your tix through e-bay or stub-hub and end up paying alot more for them....this is why I got up early on the day they went on sale, spent a little more for better seats but it ain't nothing like what others will charge you if the show sells out. Also, if these guys were to sell the tixs that I have, they would be charging 3x the amount, there are people out there who make a living buying and selling all kinds of tickets to all kinds of events not just concerts.
