Mon 12 Jul – Iron Maiden, Dream Theater
This concert was my second Iron Maiden
concert and my first time at the MSG. As a person who got to be part of the previous tour that featured classics only, the current set list was a dream that came true. And anyone who didn't like the set list should have done their homework about the current tour, since it was known that it would be focused on the “newer” albums.
That aside… the opening act, Dream Theater
, was alright. I only knew “As I Am
” (opening song) and “Pull Me Under
” (song that closed their show), so I didn't really enjoy the other three songs that got played in between. Even so, I think they are a fitting opening act for Iron Maiden, instead of Lauren Harris.
The crowd was really hot for Iron Maiden (obviously), and while the songs didn't get a “Rock in Rio” kind of reaction it was still a pretty nice one. It was great to listen to songs from their “Brave New World
” album (which was the main focus of the “Rock in Rio
” live album/DVD)…
