Iron Maiden Fan Club Magazine #103 and 2016 Resubscription T-shirt & METALLICA LIVEWIRED SINGAPORE 2017 full page advertisement besides a STING article & PENDAPAT AKU PASAL HARGA DAN JADUAL.

Have not much access to a laptop to write my blog so sorry about that.
(I am miserably failure using my tablet for blogging matters, even worse when with my handphone LOL!)
So a lot of posts have to be KIV, including the bootleg of the Scorpion show.
Will get them done AsSoonAsIcanPossiblyDoIt.

As usual first in English on Maiden matters, and then at the bottom in Malay Language Bahasa Melayu for Metallica matters.


On my letter box this week, the new issue of Iron Maiden FanClub Magazine number 103, and the Resub Tshirt for 2016.

My resubscription is always around the October of each year, so means if I got the money to resub on time, then I will get a free FC tshirt. Not bad design for 2016 really. A Crossed-Crude Hammer Axe design interplay with the Book Of Soul Mayan Eddie.



Now comes to the magazine 103.
I realised I never got around to show those who have not seen it some contents of the amazing really crazy I dont how they can afford it to print out #100 special edition mag, and the issues of 101 and 102.
Maybe next time. 

So I will immediately tell about #103 issue.
As usual, Full Colour thick paper magazine.
About 50 pages thick of totally text and photos with no advertisements.
Its really a value for money to join the fanclub for me to get all these,
especially the chance to buy advance tickets to shows, which is really crazy sometimes.
I try to make some checks to see if I can play around for the UK dates that I hope to backpack, but then I discovered most places are already basically SOLD-OUT.
So I have to do with the original 5 shows I planned for now. LOL!!

This is the front and back cover of Dave Murray close up.



Some of the features in the new magazine are
- some writes up by different writers on the Maiden 2016 World Tour.
Amazing photos and text.

Writes up of different places Maiden plays to, 

this is a photo of I think the Maiden tech in charge of lighting while Maiden is on stage in WACKEN 2016.





Love the HENRY ROLLINS part who enquired about how Maiden can do it and still maintain it till this day..




And the best is all the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC and the HISTORICAL informations of which I wont know of.

Seems the BERLIN show they did at this spectacular huge open amphitheater (which fits 20,000 or more fans it seems) which was built by the NAZIS for 1936 OLYMPICS has a escape tunnel for ADOLF HITLER or his ministers if there was an attack or assassination.



Also an amazing photo of a fan in a Trooper costume and mask standing in the MUDDY FLOODS OF DONINGTON 2016.
I realised I havent finish my story-telling of my backpacking in 2016 in Europe to catch all my favourite bands, and YES, THAT MUDDY FLOODS IS WORST THAN THIS PHOTO.



Also an amazing amazing write up of interview with ANTHRAX on their history of discovering Iron Maiden as teenagers, and how they follow Iron Maiden when they were younger and basically stalking Iron Maiden guys and got a free meal from Steve Harris and all their late 80s adventures with Maiden and up to today, Maiden still call them up to open for Maiden.
AMAZING AMAZING PHOTOS of ANTHRAX with Steve, Adrian Smith and of course with Ed Force One.

Makes a even better read if you are also an Anthrax fan.





Plus lots of other things, writes up on Raven Age opening for Maiden, and of course lots of lots of stuffs,
and one thing I always look forward to is a from behind the drum kit, Nicko in action photo.
This is on this issue..



I think this METALLICA WORLDWIRED LIVE IN SINGAPORE FULL-PAGE ad comes out on yesterday's Singapore's English newspaper called the STRAITS TIMES.
Actually, I was looking for the STING article and interview regarding the new album.

I like Sting (and THE POLICE) enough, though I must say, I like some of his songs, and I dont like some of his songs. 



REALLY REALLY FUCKING BASTARD PRICE TICKET.

THIS MEANS A LOT OF HARDCORE LONG TIME FOLLOWERS OF METALLICA CANNOT AFFORD TO SEE THE SHOW.

EVEN IF THE LONG TIME FANS CAN AFFORD IT, THEY CAN ONLY AFFORD THE PEASANT PRICE TICKETS AND THAT MEANS YOU HAVE TO SIT WAY BEHIND IN THE STADIUM AND VERY NEAR TO THE ROOFTOP.

INSTEAD OF STANDING AT THE FRONT SECTION OF THE STAGE AND KNOWING THE WORDS TO THE SONGS FROM THE FIRST FOUR ALBUMS AT LEAST.

Yes, I understand Metallica may be bringing in PYROS for ONE? 
And LARS MAY AGAIN UTTER OBSCENITIES LIKE THE FIRST TIME IN THE EARLY 90S.

So definitely high Insurance?

But Iron Maiden had played in the same place, and certainly Iron Maiden has an equal of even bigger scale production, but Maiden tickets cost less than half of what Metallica is charging if I remember well in Singapore.
Roughly, excluding the airticket and some rough living on the streets and cheap lodges backpacking, I can see about FOUR Maiden shows all over UK in the standing section for a price of a Metallica front section ticket in Singapore.

Its worst when GUNS N ROSES in Singapore in February 2017 has cheaper tickets in general.

Anyway, I bought a ticket LOL!!!! but nope, I cannot afford the most expensive just to see James Hetfied and Kirk Hammett and maybe a bit of Lars Ulrich.
I HOPE THEY PLAY THE FULL NEW ALBUM for 90 minutes & I would be happy.

Thats what I pay the ticket for.

Anyway, rumours are going around that Donington 2017 will have GnR and Metallica headlining different days for that June weekend.

So... nice. LOL!!
But nope I am not returning to Donington next year, I had already make up my mind,

my backpacking trip to see my fave rock bands will be Iron Maiden UK Tour 2017, I hope.




Hi semua,

mula2 cerita Metallica nak main kat Stadium Tertutup Singapura,
(ala.... Ni tempat korang tengok Iron Maiden main, tempat XPDC HEADLING 3 jam dengan dua2 formation BRUTAL dan V6 beraksi, dan KUMPULAN SEARCH JADI BAND PEMBUKAAN, dan jugak tempat Double Trouble Search dan Wings, di mana Amy Search atas pentas cakap nanti nak keluar Double Trouble 3. HAHAHAHAHAHAH)

OK OK,
masa mula diumumkan,
ni dalam kepala hotak aku...
ni kepala hotak aku cakap ok...!!!
- Hmmmm... Indoor Stadium 12,500 maximum penonton, kalau Malaysia dan Indon takde show, dan Australia takde show, maknanya semua datang Singapore tengok,
jadi cepat2 tiket abis hari Ahad,
maka hari Isnin pun ada lagi show tambahan...

Jadi aku nak gi tengok dua2 show, Ahad dan Isnin.. pasal aku tahu mesti Metallica nak test semua lagu baru...
dan ni la salah satu sebab aku nak pergi, nak tengok Metallica test lagu baru...

Macam sapa korang tengok Iron Maiden 2011 live kat Singapura tu, tu malam kedua ok...

Adrian Smith dan start dah dia punya improvisation, dan korang perasan kan Talisman macam Bruce tak boleh angkat gitu...
tapi by the time show ni dah sampai Australia, Iron Maiden dah stable, Talisman semua dah kena alih awal, pasal aku speku sama macam lagu Trooper, Talisman memang lagu bunuh diri untuk Bruce nyanyi live.

So tu la aku nak tengok band2 mulakan tour main, bukan dah setahun, dua tahun bila semua dah stable.

Jadi balik kepada kepala hotak aku, tu la aku ingat....

TAPI, lepas tu bila aku dapat WASSAP HARGA TIKET METALLICA...

Aku terkejut sangat, giler babi mahallll???

Apa siak? Insurance tinggi ke kot ONE nak pakai Pyro giler babi?
Tak payah bawak pyro la,
turunkanlah harga...
Giler kan
Abis tu peminat2 first four albums macam mana?
Orang2 Melayu fans lama serious berbual berapa ramai mampu siak beli tiket paling mahal?

Ni aku cakap terus terang la kan.... Aku takde tutup tutup...

Mula2 aku tak mau pergi tau, aku macam rasa BABI LA METALLICA GI MAMPOS KENA TANAM DENGAN DUIT KORANG,
tapi kan, aku beli jugak tiket ok, tapi....   tiket dengar sound je la HAHAHHAHAHAA.

Ni serious la kan, pasal aku minat gi tengok band2 main live ni semua... hobi gitu...

Anyway, 
Aku pun sedar, METALLICA bukannya kaya, aku tak rasa dorang ok la, aku tahu dorang banyak kerugian, terutama ORION FESTIVAL yang dorang main 2 malam, satu malam full Ride The Lighting, satu malam full Master Of Puppets tu,
tu dorang hilang duit banyak...
dan jugak, aku tahu yang Pilem Wayang Through The Never ke hapa tu, aku ada baca tu pun dorang kerugian.
So memang la susah nak carik makan..

So aku Unforgiven pun aku ubah ke NO REMORSE.

Aku harap, dorang main semua satu album baru... baru seronok, baru daring, baru thrill.
Lepas tu encore la 4-5 lagu feberet, dah tentu Enter Sandman dan Nothing Else Matters untuk terutama peminat2 Britney Spears dan Take That dan One Direction.



OK sekarang mari kita tengok dates pulak, aku suka tau buat kajian, spekulasi ni semua...

11/1 Korea MALAM PEMBUKAAN TOUR 2017

20/1 Hong Kong

22/1 Singapore - malam terakhir di Asia

3/2 DENMARK.

Jadi, antara 11 hingga 19hb ada SEMBILAN HARI.

Katalah Metallica skip saling sehari untuk rest dan travel... dan jugak ada HARI REHAT UNTUK CREW MEMBERS PASAL NI UNION ORANG PUTEH PUNYE UNDANG2.

maka shows ialah

13/1

15/1

17/1

katalah - NO AUSTRALIAN DATES AT ALL..

tinggal Asia je, jadi JEPUN, katalah Jepun dapat dua malam.....

katalah China takde, India ada ke tak? 

Dorang takkan tak mau main Dubai ke?

Bangkok? Manila? Indon?

so aku tak mau take the chance pasal KL nye show , so aku belilah tiket untuk Singapore.

SATU BENDA HATI AKU CAKAP,

MACAM DARI SEGI LOGISTIK,

KALAU 22HB LAST SHOW, KENAPA 20HB MAIN DI HONG KONG..

KAN dari segi Logistik lagi murah dan lagi comfortable main dekat2 Asia Tenggara ni berturut2...

paham tak macam, Bangkok, then KL, then Singapore, then Jakarta, jimat dari logistik dan boleh masa rehat dan jimat wang jugak...

NI PADA PENDAPAT AKU LA>...


SILA JANGAN LAHAR.... DAN AKU HARAP AKU SALAH
