5 A major event for Maiden - 250000 fans!!!taggert | 10/03/2012 | See all taggert's reviews (34)This was a major event for Iron Maiden when they played to an estimated 250000 fans! Not only that, it showed that Maiden were back on the map after their great yet not succesful albums x factor and virtual xi. It must have been awesome for Bruce, shouting 'scream for me rio' and hearing 250000 fans roar back! The songs are performed well as well with songs like dream of mirrors and the modern classic blood brothers sounding great live. The crowd are good too, singing along to all the words and even chanting along to all the melodies.
