Iron Maiden - Irvine Meadows review from LA Weekly

"I've got to pinch myself and say it's not Long Beach Arena in 1985," Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson bellowed to the sold out crowd of 15,000 at the Verizon Amphitheater on Saturday night in Irvine. With a long hair to short hair ratio of 5:1 (oddly, same as the band's), "The Maiden Family" included seven and 57 year olds, all assembled for quarter-century old metal tunes, beginning with "Aces High." Theirs is a timeless pursuit: though Maiden's over three decades into their career, they've played to more southern Californians in the first half of 2008 than any year of their career (including the aforementioned four-night stint in '85). The band was in top form."

Fuckin Maiden Rules.  They are the only band from the genre and I'm including hair metal to, that could sell that many tickets.  I don't even think they sold out when I saw them in the 80s.   Way togo.  Cooool review to

The whole idea of Iron Maiden was theatrics to make it as commercially viable as could be.

The went so far as to make a product Eddie.

Not say they did not have killer songs cause they did.
