Iron Maiden Concert
Apr 8, 2011

Guys and gals,

Below goes a few shots and a link to my full album of the Iron Maiden concert that recently happened in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil.

The shots were taken by me, just a fan from the crowd. I used the 200L f/2.8 lens and 5DMK2 mostly on ISO 6400 and shutter from 1/400 to 1/1000... Only the basic PP on DPP...

Up the irons!!!!

Rocking as if they were young. Same energy!!

But I must say, despite the fact that Bruce's voice is still AWESOME, it has started to suffer a little from his age...

I know these guys and they are a terrific gang so fab to see the piccies.

When out and about they still get mobbed by teenagers.

Bruce is so conservative in private - you wouldn't believe it.

Loves his jets though!

Great shots! How did you get an SLR into a concert? The best I've ever been able to do is sneak in a G11. What a fantastic opportunity! You certainly made the most of it. Well done.

Good stuff - particularly from crowd vs. photopit.

Wow.

It was only just the other day I was looking through the liner notes to the Powerslave (1984) album and they all looked so young (obviously they were in their 20s). Bruce had long flowing hair, etc.

Time is a mean mistress.

I've been a fan of these guys since I was 7 or 8, in the 80s. I will always regret never seeing these guys live, particularly for the Caught Somewhere in Time tour where I feel they were at their pinnacle. My sister who isn't even really a fan has seen them live twice in Sydney. The closest I've got is flying into Charles de Gaulle Airport in France and seeing their jet on the runway!

Thanks for posting these joyous images. I feel like I was there.

Regards,
H

Excellent set. As another poster has already asked, how on earth did you get your kit in without security going nuts? Down the front of your pants?!! Is that a 70-200 or are you just pleased to see me!?

Geez, life's been so crazy that I had forgotten about this post!!

Guys, sorry for the late reply!

To be honest I wasnt even sure if it was forbidden to take an DSLR.. Anyway, I just put it in my backpack alongside with a coat and when security checked it they did not complain... Guess security here does not care much about it...

They did make me throw away a little bottle of water though!!Damn I got thirsty that day... I had not had a drop of water since 5 hours before the show and was saving that up for the middle-end of the show as I did not want to drink early and have to go to the bathroom during the show

Anyhow, I don't know why they forbid us to enter with DSLR cameras... I am not a pro and don't live of photography, I just wanna take some very cool pics to keep and appreciate for life...and from the crowd, how can that beat their pro shots from the photo pits and backstage ?!?!

Oh, and I used mostly my 200L f/2.8 and a little of my 135L f/2 ..

Why retire when you can make a mint and sellout huge concerts? And the band still can perform as well as anybody else...

Exellent shots of my favourite band
In reply to Andre Pinho, Oct 25, 2011

I've seen Iron Maiden in Finland for three times. No DSLRs allowed in any of those gigs.

Great shots, and you were lucky to get so close!

For those who think these guys should retire, go and see how they play and how alive they really are!
