Johnnie’s Throwback Thursday – 2000 Iron Maiden and Rob Halford

I caught the San Antonio, El Paso, Albuquerque, Phoenix, and Irvine shows that tour, and remember being super excited, since two of my favorite singers ever were touring together; Rob Halford and Bruce Dickinson!

Iron Maiden and Anthrax Rocking Europe – Let’s Enjoy It Too [Video]

One of my favorite bands of all time is the mighty Iron Maiden!  I've seen them so many times, I've sort of lost count.  I've even taken vacations for the sole purpose of following Maiden on tour around the southwest and seeing as many shows in a week as I could!

The photo at the top is one I took in Vegas last year when I followed them to Vegas and then San Bernardino.
