  • Caught Iron Maiden at Charlotte 7-22-2019

    The wife and I took our son to the Iron Maiden concert at PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, NC this past Monday. It was a damn good show and they played some pretty obscure tune from their catalog like The Clansman, For The Greater Good Of God and Sign Of The Cross. Our seats were at the beginning of the lawn seating so my cell phone pictures aren't that great.

    The sound was pretty damn good and my cell phone captured that pretty well so I'll post a few videos that I've uploaded. Stage show was fucking awesome and if you haven't seen Maiden on this tour I highly recommend you do because they still kick serious ass!

    By the way. I'm pretty sure Adrian was playing a blue and black graphic Fender or Jackson (it had a strat headstock) but I can't find any pictures of it. Anyone have any ideas? We were so far back that I was watching the video feed trying to figure it out but they kept changing shots too quickly. I didn't see a Jackson logo so my gut feeling is that it was a Fender. I hadn't seen it before so I thought I'd see if anyone knows what it is. When I first saw it I thought it was an old cracked glass graphic but it was too boxy of a graphic for that.

      That'd be this one I guess - 2 minutes to midnight graphic:

        I am instantly in love with that guitar.

        Even though Adrian almost always uses the bridge pickup only (at least in a Maiden context, and not counting his blues jams), it's interesting to rarely see him play one-hum guitars.

          Wonder who painted it because that's the first time I've seen it, which is rare in the social-media-age...

            neilli you are correct that is the one! Thanks for finding and posting a picture of it! We were so far away that I couldn't make out what brand was on the headstock as they just didn't focus on it. I could tell it was a graphic and figured it was a Jackson but since I'd never seen it I didn't know for sure. I searched before I asked but my Google Fu let me down.

                That must be new for this tour, I saw them on the UK leg and he didn't have that painted Jackson then.

                Glad you guys over in the US are getting to see them, they are on fire this tour especially Nicko. I've seen them many times since 1986 and I think this was the best tour.

                        Thanks for the recommend for the Squier! I saw that Agufish video after u told me and it seems like it was a well made guitar for the money, none in its class offer such features. I could totally mode it with a different pickguard if i want it to be Adrian Smith style! (HSS)

                            Haha it's probably 3rd in line, I do need a strat but I also need single coils to mod that.
                            FIrst in line : a JACKSON! That's why i'm here , particular pointy and named after a famous dead guitar player.
