hab da was von dickinson da kann man nure sagen danke für nichts mtv
At IRON MAIDEN's sold-out show at Globen in Stockholm, Sweden earlier tonight (November 14), singer Bruce Dickinson slammed MTV Europe for refusing to air the band's new video for the song "Rainmaker".
"I see a lot of faces here in the front who are not even half my age," Dickinson told the crowd. "That's great. We just got some bad news. Not that I care about MTV, but they told us that they won't show the 'Rainmaker' video because they say that our audience is too old for MTV."
IRON MAIDEN's gig in Stockholm was the group's second since they were forced to cancel three shows on their European tour in order to allow Dickinson time to recover from a case of the flu and severe laryngitis.
Dickinson's voice was in excellent shape throughout the concert, and the "air-raid siren" — as Bruce is affectionately known — was able to reach all the high notes, according to several attendees.

Good evening to all of you. I'm just back from the concert in Bercy and here is my review
I arrive at 7pm (local time) . Bercy is half full with fans from 15 to 50 years old. The youngest fan I see must be 7. The oldest are an english couple about 65 years old.( Could they be Bruce's parents? ) A stupid 40 years old guy behind me says that Iron Maiden sounded better on stage in 1979 and that they would never reach again that quality of performance !!!
1st part : Helloween starting at 8pm . They played 50 minutes. I'm impressed . They're doing a great show and the crowd is getting hotter and hotter after each song. The sound is good ( not like muderdolls in june) and they manage to set fire to Bercy . We all give them a standing ovation at the end .That doesn't occur often in France for 1st part bands. Their last song ends up in a total mess : they all exchange their guitars and Nicko is taking advantage of the situation to come on stage for a few seconds , greeting the crowd with Helloween. I didn't see very well but I think that part of Iron Maiden and their crew were attending the show from the right side of the stage . All in all a great performance from Helloween
2nd part : Iron Maiden staring at 9:20 pm, played 2 hours The setlist is the same as in their previous concerts
Wildest dreams : It seems that Bruce was very happy with the final of the rugby world cup and he shot a rugby ball in the crowd before he started to sing
I don't remember the exact order of the songs and I might forget some of them . I think it was : Wrathchild The trooper can I play with madness
Then a little speech from Bruce ( all in french of course) . He introduces the next songs from DOD and mentions the fact that DOD reached to n°3 in France ( without the help of MTV)
Dance of Death : sounds great on stage , better than on the album IMO. Very theatrical .
Rainmaker : very punchy. I think it was played a bit faster than the album version
Brave new world Lord of the flies Pashendale : unbelievable, with great lights and sound effects. Again very theatrical
No more lies : one of the highlights of the evening. Great vocal performance . Bruce has amazing intonations on that song. It is one of my favorite and it sounds even better on stage Steve who was quite discreet untill now has suddenly gone totally mad , running and jumping everywhere and banging his head as if he wants to crash it against a wall . You really fell that this is HIS song.
Hallowed be thy name Fear of the dark : again great performance from Bruce . Another highlight Iron Maiden : the crowd is now totally crazy
They leave the stage and come back after 5 minutes
New speech from Bruce who introduces the band . And especially Nicko saying he is not an assassin but that the main problem is the way the americain justice is going. He adds "not an assassin , not like Mickael Jackson...." ( it was funny, well not really after all)
Journeyman : sounds great on stage , very good feedback from the crowd. Again very good vocals. Bruce puts all his heart in this song .
Number of the beast Run to the hills
They greet the crowd and Bruce stays a bit longer to thank us and say we are adorable tonight. I'm not sure he said adorable because we were making so much noise and because of his accent ( it was in french again) but I think that's the word he used
This concert was better than the previous one they did in June. I think one of the reasons for that is that they are playing new songs so they have to surpass themselves. The old songs are more like a routine. I remember in June lot of people didn't stand up during the show. Today everybody stood up from the first note untill the end of the show . They were all in a very good shape and so was the crowd. Bruce was in a good mood today and we were lucky enough to avoid his traditional ranting. The fusion between the band and the crowd was complete and the new songs were incredibly received.
Now it's time to go to sleep . This is a bit long and I don't know if you will be brave enought to read it all. I did my best to write in a correct english. Hope all of you will understand.
I know what i want and i say what i want and no one can take it away
