MUSIC REVIEW: Metal behemoth Iron Maiden rocks San Manuel Amphithea...

Full story: San Bernardino County Sun

It had been 22 years since I last saw heavy metal behemoth Iron Maiden perform. Throughout the 1980s, I never missed a chance to don my parachute pants, mocassin boots and zebra-striped bandanas and catch Maiden whenever the pack of London metal gods graced California with their performances.

I see The Sun has enough staff to cover a heavy metal concert but there are never any reviews of the San Bernardino Symphony or any of the productions at the California Theater or
other cultural events in the city that have a wider appeal than a bunch of drug-infested headbangers.

I love people who make wide generalizations about other people. Just sad.

It's simple math NJ: The symphony draws say two to three hundred people.
Iron Maiden draws about thirty thousand.

Great show, lame crowd who wanted to see more classics.

Congrats to Maiden for mixing it up and still making creative interesting NEW material to go along with the old warhoses.

Want the warhorses ? Pick up one the umpteen live albums and DVDs

San manuel is possibly the worst run, worst facilitized and organized venues in Southern California. It’s rare that I venture in there.

To NJ - Would you like to have lunch in Irvine, Bistango's maybe and you can see for yourself how bigoted and narrow minded your impression of Iron Maiden fans are ? I'd rather be with 30,000 passionate open minded heavy metal fans than 200 "educated" "sophisticad" narrow minded Symphonjy lovers like yourself.
