Iron Maiden. More kostuumwissels than Beyoncé

What have Pokémon, Angry Birds and Iron Maiden have in common? They all three of us have a popular smartphonegame. But only one of them is Graspopheadliner – unless we are here tomorrow is still a Pikachu bump into.

We have that Legacy of the Beast-game even tried while we were waiting – okay, be honest: it was during the encores of a rather annoying Avenged Sevenfold – and it turns out a pretty nice role playing game in which you have different incarnations of Maiden’s mascot, Eddie, for you can fight. Now say that a dinosaurusband like Iron Maiden – average age 60 years – not to the kids think.

In that war, religion and vernielingstrilogie knew Maiden also a commentary on the world today, to deliver material from the 80’s – so remains a Maiden show is always a bit like a novel. But because the eye also called, was invested in a knoert of a show. There sailed a replica Spitfire on the stage – what is sin for the magic that the night had not yet fallen. Detailed backdrops have told their story better than the average bindtekst, and Dickinson ventured into more kostuumwissels than Beyoncé. We are spotting him as a pilot, Everest mountaineers, it, monk and Venetian nobleman.

We would hurry from carnival speak, were the songs not so strong. As we are on our 59th have the lung capacity that Dickinson, after one and a half hour show showed in ‘Number of the beast’, or the sleight of hand of Janick Gers or Dave Murray during ‘Sign of the cross”, then we can happily die.

‘Your time will come,” she said in ‘The wicker man’. It would be a nod to young bands like Parkway Drive, after the Maiden were shut down and now all are eagerly to their status of Graspop-pet sites? Anyway, that time may come. But now the empire is still Maiden.
