thanks to caspera for informing the book for Kinokuniya KLCC Malaysia is RM129.90 and online checking for Kinokuniya Singapore the book cost S$75.
Mental Conversion rates and clearly Kinokuniya Malaysia is giving a super price compared to the Singapore one, so maybe you guys check it out and also check online prices from Europe/US too before ordering.
the summary pages on the final frontier 2010 and 2011 tours. Actually you can gauge the beauty of this book from this two pages already, so its really a good buy even if you dont like Iron Maiden and think they are crap but just want to see great music & entertainment theme photos of travels and fans worldwide having fun and the band itself off stage and in full action live. Its mostly happiness but also sadness and also the way of living in other places which is so different than us, whether better or worst.
the photo spread showing Maiden rehearsing for this tour is nice
lawa lak selipar Dave Murray haha. Survey beb doran pakai apa... dulu aku tak pakai seluar jeans lois, sekali tengok gambo Dave Murray pakai , ada satu from the backstage photo boleh nampak brand jeans dia pakai (rasa rasa nye la), terus aku pun start pakai seluar jeans lois haha. Tapi dia pakai smart la, aku pakai cam sarung nangka. muahaha.
You know? like the jackfruit cover.
Anyway then I know Lois jeans is originally Spain Espana Sepanyol brand. I think.
l love those " off stage and on stage on the same day " photos in this book. There are a few of them. This is another one of Bruce wearing his shoes and moments later he is flying on stage.
the moscow photos is very nice..
as I like to take photos for fun, this book actually also teach me a lot of things.
So its ok to have slanted " senget " photos haha
Adrian Smith could be even bigger than Brad Pitt, handsome, great guitarist, songwriter and fantastic singer, fashionable trendy and all the making of a hollywood star, but he already has in Maiden fans mind.
final frontier tour section of 2011 using Ed Force One is extra nice because of Iron Maiden playing in South East Asia and makes us no need to travel much which cost alot of money of one two three years hard to earned savings , and needs lots of sacrifices.
and also playing in Singapore and Indonesia finally allow tens of thousands of fans to finally see them live and many of these have been fans for a long time since the early days,
and allow a lot of people to at last bring along their family members, love ones, friends, neighbours, mere aquaintance ( ok I am now exagerating ) to savour Maiden live and see whats the excitment is all about and share the happiness that Maiden brings to people's life, well, at least for myself thats how I feel.
Untung ah kerja kat airport changi dapat sambut2 cam gini cam braders kat atas ni, mau aku golek2 kat tarmac tu siak haha, tak pun mesti hapi siak kalo dapat jadi cleaner vacuum lantai ed force one atau lap2 kerusi buang habuk.
Kejap2 , aku tengah fikir
- selimut, sudu garfu ed force one semua simpan buat souvenir haha. Boleh? nanti tak dapat gi tengok Maiden, duk lock-up siak haha.
Singapore segment, you guys go and check out yourselves if your photos are inside haha. Like I say there are very nice photos of fans for the Singapore show , also the Jakarta show has a few Islamic / Muslim related photos which I will keep my comments to myself, and also Bali also has a lot of nice photos of the fans and the spectacular surrounding of the concert place.
So Marina Bay Sands, ok now I know how it looks like to be inside the rooms looking out at the Singapore skyline, I can only afford to look from far at this expensive place haha. Maybe one day I want to go to the roof-top la jalan-jalan.
Satu malam berapa siak bilik Adrian Smith ni...
Ooo and I was also here for this show. Tight security with some even have to surrender their belts and buckles. But funny I managed to catch lots of great Maiden action with my digital camera for this show. Ah, the luck of entering the arena using " First To The Barrier " contest haha.
and this also, I was here another intimate show before Maiden play Soundwave Festivals to 40-50 thousands, avoiding all the " raining beer" by the happy happy people around me haha. Lots of things happening I am not aware of the Janick with the bra situation on his guitar until I see the youtube.
and this one also, first time seeing Maiden in a headlining festival set-up, and.... I was also at the Koala Sanctuary. In fact, when I blog about visiting this place, someone replied on the blog post that Steve Harris was also there and I just miss him.
But really its a nice place, it even got a photo in this book. See..
like I say, even if you dont like Maiden, this book got lots to offer in term of what we are as humans. happiness and also sadness.
this is the description of the Japan Earthquake Tsunami and what was happening on Maiden's side before, during and after tragedy as they were about to land in Tokyo.
Without the descriptions and storyline and even timeline, we will not get the full picture of what is happening so its what makes this book so much superior.
the US Jet fighters and NASA Space Shuttle visits is also interesting.
the book's ending has Bruce writting the lyrics of coming home , and he sign off as 'the singer bloke.'
at last finish,
this is the back cover and so I finish viewing the book, and it off it goes joining some of the rest of Iron Maiden proper photo books in my collection.
next, waiting for the book about Deep Purple and Rainbow written by their tour manager for what 30 years? oooooo cant wait. Especially with Whitesnake just playing here.
