FEB 28 – Las Vegas, NV – Mandalay Bay Events Center

Awesome! This couldn’t be more perfect, as I live in Florida, only about two hours from Ft. Lauderdale! Can’t wait to hear the new material live! I hope they play The Red and the Black! I cried for days each time I heard the ending of that song.
I sure hope they do another leg at some point, I’d prefer not to go on a long trek to New York. That’s the only date even remotely close to me.
got my tickets for Tulsa and Sunrise FL
SCREAM FOR ME FT LAUDERDALE! AND, A FEW WEEKS LATER… CHICAGO!
I really hope there is another leg…Maiden ALWAYS come to Texas on their major world tours but this time nowhere remotely close…
My guess is there will be. I seem to remember Bruce telling Eddie Trunk that this tour would go a couple of years. As of now there are only 10 dates in the United States and two of those are in Los Angeles. Since 2000, Maiden has never short-changed the US like that. Yes, the Dance of Death and Matter of Life and Death tours were short (8 and 6 dates, respectively), those were adjacent to other, longer tours.
Before the Dance of Death tour kicked off in 2003, there was the Give Me Ed tour, which featured 25 US dates. In 2005 there was the Eddie Rips Up The World tour, which was 20 dates.
I’m in the same bind as you — Maiden always comes to the Bay Area here in CA, but they aren’t, at least on the current known leg of the US portion of the tour.
