One Sludger said it sold out in minutes, yet there were emails sent out yesterday saying tickets still available. They haven't done an arena show in the Twin Cities in ages. My guess is that it will be 90% full at least. Ghost has a strong following here too. Should be a fun show.
Friday's show in St. Paul was sold out and the place was at 95% capacity from what I could see. Ghost killed it as the openers.
Kudos to Nicko McBrain for actually throwing drum sticks. Not this lob into crowd to avoid injury stuff.
I was glad not to be on Janick's side of the stage. Holy showboat.
The set list was a slog to get through. Actually overheard in bathroom:
Man 1 peeing while song is finishing: "Man, now they are going to play something I know while I am pissing"
Man 2: Nope, they play "Book of Souls" next
Man 1 disappointed: Oh
Not sure how Bruce does it. Running around and his voice holds up. Incredible showman.
Glad to have finally seen them. Probably don't need to again unless they do a greatest hits tour.
