Iron Maiden

Iron Maiden have been a band for 35 years and have played over 2,000 concerts, including dates in Venezuela and Columbia where attendees were so desperate to see the band that they abandoned their jobs and homes to camp out near the outdoor venue for weeks ahead of time. They remain the rulers of the now-not-so-New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and therefore, have more than earned the right to run their kingdom as they see fit. However, be forewarned that the set list on this tour is loaded heavily with post-Powerslave material, and old-school fans will be waiting a good hour before hearing anything they recognize. If you’ve never seen Iron Maiden, by all means, go—just know what era you’re in for. HANNAH LEVIN
