Beast over Bangalore

It's been really long since I've known this - just never got around to posting about it (especially since it wasn't exactly good news from my point of view). Anyway, ladies and gentlemen, for those of you didn't know, Eddie is coming to India!

It was just recently that I was wondering - without much hope - how cool it would be if Iron Maiden came to India (without much hope because when you live here, you don't dream that such things could actually happen). And then, when I came to know that they were coming, I got all excited, but then I saw this:



See what I mean? First of all, for some unbelievably stupid reason they're playing in Bangalore of all places, and secondly it's smack-in-the-middle of our boards! Really sad ... because it's gonna be great - they're air-freighting 20 tonnes of equipment for the concert, including a whole stage (thus turning hopeless dreams into reality :) ).

They recently played in Dubai - the highlight of which was that they brought a whole freakin' tank to the concert!




Anyway, I hope it comes on TV at least ...

lol....dont ask about boards...i just want them to get over
and i think he likes bullet for my valentine the most....and ya man dammnnn iron-maiden performed in bangalore...
u noe i always confuse between songs of metallica and IM..
anyway i saw 300 today...its a nice movie if u like violence that is...

arjun

I like system of sown, unearth completely rocks, bullet for my vallentine is soft metalcore

:) hope that helped :)

arjun

in that i meant "unearth" not unearth completely rocks lmao... :D

» sahil

don't you mean system of a down?

shayeri

well....for me, Iron maiden is like a band of people with long hair, and no brians. sorry, but they're cannibalistic.

anyway, what miffs me too is the fact that all these bands go to either bombay or Bangalore, which hardly makes sense, because delhi is like da place. And most of the Bangalore population probably won't even know what Pink Floyd is, let alone Iron maiden. the last concert we had in Delhi was Sting...ever since then it's nil. nada. zilch.

now SOAD, that's something i really like. Chopsuey being my fave.

toodles.

» sahil

they're cannibalistic? what do you mean???

and yes, hardly any band comes to delhi, which is really irritating. and while most of the bangalore population wouldn't even know about iron maiden, it more than made up by the coming of people from the rest of india for that

[\\Kartikeya//]

Delhi's crown is cannibalistic. That's why they don't come here.

shayeri

cannibalistic. like cannibals. violent I mean.

and yeah, I think they're worried about their security or something, so they stay away. But still we're nice kids, aren't we? when have we vandalized and wrecked a concert, or even a shop for that matter of fact??????

[\\Kartikeya//]

Uh huh!

Ramit Singal

Ummm, yeah, I was there in Bangaluru when that happened. Did see the awesome show the guys put up. If you wanna check out my videos, mail me.

» sahil

dude!!
ur are SOOOO lucky!
yes i dont mind seeing the videos at all....

are they good quality?

Ramit Singal

No. Not really good quality. But they do give a nice taste of the atmosphere.

I did manage 5th row :D However, since digital cameras were not allowed, I had to make do with my friend's cell phone, 1.3 mp (I think).

I will mail you a couple of videos.

Cheers.

Ramit Singal

Oh and yeah, the tank did come this time around too ;)

During "Evil that men do"

sporadicblogger

So you couldn't make it. Evidently I was curious enough to pop over and see :D

The tank was brilliant-except I missed it.

And Bangalore has many many MANY metalheads, and what be more-they be well behaved metal heads.
I hope 2008 happens in bangalore as well-and if not that, then mumbai...but please god not delhi *crosses fingers*

:O

Why not?
Wouldn't you rather go for a concert in delhi than all the way to, say, bangalore?




*let me kill the guy who thought there should be boards during the time when IM comes to India*

wild iris

oh well who cares anyway...i agree with shayeri.

» sahil

that's because you dont know *anything* :P
a lecture is due, but i'm not in the mood right now...

wild iris

*raised eyebrow, murderous look* oh yeah?

Scream for me Bangalore!!

Bangalore is a better place for gigs, anyday! Lesser no. of creeps, more chilled out people and the WEATHER. If 100 ppl collapsed in blore(and thats just a hypothetical figure) 100,000 would have in Delhi.

Oh, apparently the bootleg DVD is out-also, Royal Challenge and DNA will be coming out with an official DVD.
