Iron Maiden in India

The news of Iron Maiden to play in Bangalore from David's site was quite a stunner. Must have been the sweetest thing to read for Maiden fans. Yes! the Heavy Metal Rockers are going to play on March 17'th at Palace Grounds, Bangalore. It brings to me fond memories of college times in the 80's when T.P, my friend at I.I.T Madras and big IM fan used to play me songs such as "Halloween be thy name" and "Seventh son of a Seventh son". Though I am not a big fan of the band I consider "Alexander the Great" from their "Somewhere in Time" album, one of the greatest (maybe even the greatest) heavy metal songs. I am sure it is going to be a loud concert, louder than Deep Purple's but I will not be making it. I have watched Iron Maiden live on video and certainly I don't think I could take their music for two plus hours or more. However I am sure tonnes of heavy metal fans are going to turn up and so must you if you are a heavy meatal fan or better still if you a Iron Maiden fan.

the concert wasnt as exciting as it was hyped to be.. Bruce apparently dint know the potential of indian fans until he saw it for himself and announced that he'd be back before the next year.

Hello David,

I knew guys while in college who would be listening to Iron Maiden at 6.00 A.M. Ask about loyal Indian fans?
