    Iron Maiden are an incredible live band. Saw them from the first row last summer and it was awesome.

    Inferno, Ghost didn't play in your neck of the woods last year? They played in Laval (a 10 hour drive from where I live), but it was in December during my busiest time of the year, so that wasn't going to work.

    Rammstein in Rotterdam & Paris. Never seen them live before, except on youtube videos. I only recently got into them, as I mistakenly thought that because the sings were in German I wouldn't really enjoy them. That was one of the worst musical misjudgements of my life.

    I totally agree. They were my fist gig back in November 1080 and I reckon they are still amazing live

    The Who, when they announce the UK dates

    I'd like to hit most of Japan, the Hammersmith Odeon, bang a few groupies, piss on the Alamo, maybe puke on something Trump. Get some good photos done, maybe record a gig or two for a future release.

    And of course, drink copious amounts with the fans — without them, I'd be nothing.

    Nope. At least not yet. They came through on the Meloria tour. I almost flew to Arizona to see them in November, but the timing just didn't work out.

    The Cure in Paris. Haven't seen them live for 25 years but everyone says they're back on form and Robert Smith still doesn't own a hairbrush.

    Didn't really know where else to put this, but since Iron Maiden have announced their tour dates for 2019 already, and ACDC haven't, I'm assuming that Maiden will play before ACDC, meaning that Maiden will be my first concert ever. Given that I'm new to this whole concert thing, I have some dumb questions...

    Has anyone ever been to the Charlotte, NC, Music Pavilion? It's the show I'm eyeing given that it's the closest to me but really don't know how much I want to spend on tickets (obviously the closer you get the more it costs) and want to know what the pavilion is like. Link to buy tickets is here (https://www.vividseats.com/concerts/iron-maiden-tickets/iron-maiden-pnc-music-pavilion-7-22-2905814.html) so you can get a view of the layout (although it doesn't really help very much). I've also seen photos of the pavilion with seats in it, but I doubt anyone would be sitting very close to the stage at a rock concert. As I said, stupid questions, but can anyone help me out with some recommendations and/or tips for the Pavilion itself or just concerts in general?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't know anything about the venue, but one problem now is that if you want to buy a ticket at the regular on sale price, you are only left with seats on the side or the back.
    Here's the official ticket site: https://concerts1.li...

    Sections 4 or 9 may be an okay choice because there are still some seats lower down for $79.

    Vivid seats is a secondary market site, and you'll pay a lot more. On top of the listed price, you'll get hit with a huge fee when you checkout.
    I like TickPick best for secondary tickets because the price you see is the price you pay. And they don't take as big of a cut from sellers. https://www.tickpick...

    My suggestion for secondary market tickets, if you go that route, is to buy them about 2 weeks or so away from the concert. That's when sellers start getting a little worried that their tickets won't sell and the prices start to come down. (This isn't ALWAYS the case, and super popular tickets may never come down, but it usually works that way.)

    Is there a reason you didn't try to grab tickets when they first went on sale? I scored good seats by joining the Iron Maiden fan club for $40 and buying tickets during the presale. I got four tickets for me and friends, so it was only a $10 added fee to each ticket.

    Good luck!

    Thanks, I appreciate it! The reason as to why I didn't get them earlier would be that I wasn't even a Maiden fan until 3 weeks ago and I have absolutely no experience in buying tickets, so hopefully that'll change in the near future.

    My advice would be to just buy the $79 tickets in either section 4 or 9 and enjoy the show. There's probably no reason to pay a bunch of money to get super close, especially since you've just become a fan. It'll be a good show even in the those non-center seats. That venue looks like it has a good view from just about everywhere.

    Here’s another event that I have absolutely zero clue where to post about because I figured it didn’t deserve its own thread but a guitarist called Nita Strauss is coming to my church on Sunday to worship since she’s apparently very spiritual. Might give me a reason to go for the first time in years...

    I only got into Maiden in 2013 and have yet to see them - they played in the UK in August last summer the one month i'm never there. Enjoy.

    Saw Maiden for the first time in 2017 with Ghost in Chicago. Had a great time. And Penguin, if you can, be sure to get ya a bottle of Trooper! It's fantastic!
