Whilst enjoying the legendary Irons live last Saturday night out in good old San Berdoo, it struck me that I haven't posted here in over a month! Well, sue my ass: I've been dealing with hideous computer issues, moving for the second time in four months, and oh yeah: getting married (a wedding which my now-wife and I planned ourselves). So phew!
But this post means the start of my return journey to Bootland, and it's good to be heading back at last...
It's always a privilege to see Maiden live in the U.S., given that they never seem to play more than ten dates at a stretch here. I haven't yet found a good boot from the current Final Frontier World Tour, but I have such fond memories of seeing them twice on the last one -- the massive greatest hits-geared Somewhere Back in Time World Tour -- that I thought I'd post one of those shows.
This boot is from only the second night of that epic 14-month tour, but the performance is tight and strong, in a decent-sounding audience recording, perhaps not up to our usual sonic standards but certainly worth the download. Hey -- I might be a little rusty, but I'm back!
