Being a part of a Historic event - Iron Maiden's Somewhere Back in Time World Tour

One of the biggest concert tours in History is underway as Iron Maiden performs world wide as part of their Somewhere Back in Time World Tour performing their big hits from the 80's. The first leg was kicked off with a concert in Bombay in 2008 and in its concluding phase the band performs a concert on February 15'th at Bangalore where 60,000 tickets are for sale. I have already booked mine and Binny's but they need to be reedemed for the actual tickets at the venue. One of the concerts in March has already been sold out and most of them that have concluded were also completely sold out.

Here is a picture of the Boeing 757 leased out to the band for their tour. (Picture Courtesy -

Complete details of the tour, song list for the shows, ticket sales, venues etc are on Wikipedia.

Unlike my friend Tee Pee I am not a hard core Iron Maiden fan but I am going to the concert for one song of theirs that I think is one of the greatest heavy metal songs ever made, "Alexander the Great". Another song is "Seventh son of a Seventh son". Though they don't feature in the list I only pray they sing them.
