Iron Maiden at the Palace (of the Beast)

Johnny Loftus catches an Iron Maiden show, and bonds with a dude in his section who holds up his backpatched denim vest for the band to see:

“Dickinson’s a fucking pro, and has probably been doing this spotlight pan gag for 35 years. He sees the vest, sees Eddie’s rictus staring right back at him, and pauses the spot on my man and his vest. He cheers. We all cheer. And it was just so totally metal that I had to break my moratorium on high fives.”

  1. Fucking excellent. This is similar to the experience I had at the reunited Judas Priest tour. This is prompting me to get the new Maiden album without any hint of irony.
