The Maiden gig in Tokyo today was really good. It was filled to the brim with Japanese metallers of all kinds, but also there were lots of non-metal fans there too. They really go wild at concerts!
One thing I noticed is that, when Maiden played the song "2 Minutes To Midnight", everyone in the crowd made the peace-sign when they shouted along with the chorus.
I guess they meant *2* minutes to midnight, but its really weird how they all did it in unison here but I have never seen or heard of it being done anywhere else. Perhaps it actually is done everywhere, but I have been to drunk or too busy headbanging to ever notice it before.
That's it - no more gigs here in Japan for now.
