Internet Internet Internet….. It will always surprise us with both good and bad things.
Today I came across a video where a 9-year-old kid from Oregon received a birthday present he will never forget: IRON MAIDEN tickets.
That’s damn right! His dad is taking him to see his favorite band in September in Portland.
Earlier IRON MAIDEN vocalist Bruce Dickinson said that the band’s fanbase is “formed of lots of layers of different age groups. He said:
“Every layer sticks to the layer underneath it and doesn’t detach. People come to a show expecting to see people of my age, and they get a whole bunch of kids between fifteen and twenty-eight.
“I don’t want to go onstage and look out at a bunch of crumblies my age.”
“People of my age go along to shows, but you never see them in the mosh pit — mainly they’re standing by the toilet, waiting to get their prostate problem solved. We like seeing rabid kids leaping around. That’s what makes our hearts pump onstage. Our music is still fierce. It’s still in your face.”
