Yeah Iron Maiden's pretty good. Not seen 'em live. I'd say the audience could be anything from teenagers to old school metalheads (40-50 years old)

You get an older crowd which makes it a bit different, i saw the Somewhere back in Time at the Forum. It was funny because Bruce said some celebrity Jackwagons showed up expecting to get in for free and they didn't let them in :P Then they put a big fake Laker jersey on Eddie which was like wtf? But Bruce apologized and said it wasn't his idea...........pretty cool if you are down on the floor, i wouldn't do it if i had to sit in the arena though....t-shirts were $50 so i said F that!

I saw them during the "Somewhere Back in Time" tour. They put on an excellant show and, unlike most rock bands their age, can still play. Typical audience age - judging by the show I went to I'd say it ranges from around 10 - 50 or so.

I love them, never forget when I saw them in Edmonton. It was a 4 hour drive from where I lived, we had seats about 7 aisles up from the stage just to the right of the stage. They put on a amazing show! Fear of the Dark and Run to the Hills were the best I remember. Like Worlock, I saw them during Somewhere Back In Time tour, so all greatest hits, none of the new CD plugging crap!

I saw their Somewhere In Time tour some years ago (OK back in the 80s after it came out) and it kicked butt. They still jam, but I couldn't tell you about the age range as it has been some time since I saw them. I will say that back when I saw Pink Floyd in Atlanta back in 94, there were 60+ year olds there.

I saw them in their 2008 tour called Somewhere Back in Time and it was amazing, mainly because it was like a greatest hits concert. They played all their best and most popular songs and some songs they hadn't played in years like Wasted Years and Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

I will be seeing them again next month but I'm not as excited, mainly because they are mostly playing songs from more recent albums (The Final Frontier, Dance of Death, etc.) However, those songs are still very good and I'm still looking forward to it. The show is always awesome, and I'm pretty sure Eddie will show up as always.

As for ages, I went when I was 17, so it was no big deal. People of all ages go see Iron Maiden.

I saw them last month and they were just as energetic as ever.

And, yeah, there will be a lot of people your age there as well as some of the older fans.

They're pretty cool; they put on a really really great live show. Really varied audience. I saw a kid wearing an Atreyu shirt. I was like "lulwut?" First time they came to Florida in 13 years or something( almost 2 years ago)

Iron Maiden is a band I've never gotten around to seeing live yet, either. Some day I must go to one of there concerts if they ever come back to my area.

Iron Maiden used to be my main musical diet five years ago or so. They started my interest in metal, and even as I branched out to death metal and black metal bands, I still see that their influence is abundant everywhere in the metal scene.
