Iron Maiden @ Makuhari Messe, Tokyo

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.
