Finally going through my shots from Thursday, I'm experimenting with watermarking my photos as I don't want any more pics stolen 🤪
Sunrise was everything I'd dreamed it would be and more, I got to be FTTB with @kuro__kitty , @logantmiller and another FC friend I'd had the pleasure of meeting in line that day it was my first time winning and I'd only ever been second row twice in the four times I've seen Maiden, I also hadn't seen them in two years so all of that made it extra special. I made so many new friends and met up with so many people off the forum and Facebook, can't wait to meet more as the tour goes on!
We were right of center and so we got to see a little bit of everyone, but especially Bruce, Steve, and Janick the crowd was super chill just like it was at my first Maiden show in 2016, wouldn't have had it any other way!
Bruce made eye contact with me multiple times throughout the night, I think he may have recognized me from when I met him in 2017 as he kept coming over to my side to stand in front of me, but maybe my short hair was throwing him off 😆 Steve locked eyes with me constantly throughout the night and we shouted lyrics at each other multiple times too, also got gunned down by him a few times! I tried in vain to get his attention during the encore as I really wanted a wristband, but to no avail he did toss a damp one to Logan who then gave it to me ❤❤❤ I made eye contact with Dave and Nicko as well which was really cool as I'd never interacted with either of them before! Nicko tossed a drumstick in my direction but someone else got it, maybe next time! I didn't interact with Janick a whole lot compared to my first two Maiden shows, I think we made eye contact once or twice but that was it I don't think he recognized me with my short hair but it's okay, he probably will at some point again since I do have five more shows in September!
All in all, best Maiden show ever and best show ever in general, even if I was sweating like a pig while waiting in line 😂 but this is only the beginning!! 🔥
