Iron Maiden

Iron Maiden and Alice Cooper brought their tour to Newark's Prudential Center last night (7/2), after playing Jones Beach last week. Like the Jones Beach show (and other shows on the tour), Alice Cooper played a hits heavy set, delivering tracks like "I'm Eighteen," "No More Mr. Nice Guy," "Billion Dollar Babies," and ending with "School's Out," which included the chorus of "Another Brick In The Wall" (you'll hear more of that song when Roger Waters performs The Wall at Yankee Stadium this weekend).

Like they've been doing on the whole tour, Iron Maiden focused the show most heavily on their 1988 album, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, giving us songs like the album's title track, "Can I Play With Madness," "Moonchild," "The Clairvoyant," and "The Evil That Men Do." And of course we were given other favorites as well, like the ever popular "Run to the Hills," "The Number of the Beast," and more.

More pictures and setlists of both bands from last night's show are below...

Still can't believe we (the rest of the tour) get Cohoeed and Cambria's crappy Rush ripoff music to open the rest of the tour.


UGH!!!

1) Glad to hear I'm not the only one who despises that shitty emo band masquerading as a prog-ish type outfit with Geddy-like vocals.

2) Too bad I couldn't catch this show (especially Alice Cooper)

3) In befo' the trendie dipshits come in and further affirm their mongoloidance.

Fabulous Maiden are still FAB-U-LOUS! Sister can still hit all the notes, and the two guitar strumming trannies still bring the thunder like when I .... oh, ya know!

It's not a sausage fest. The girls are manly and butch, but they have a good time.

AC/DC puts on a better show.

AC DC plays the same bullshit over and over to an audience of jocks and butt rockers...

Agreed. AC/DC does not disappoint.

Bruce actually looks pretty good for his age. Same can't be said of the others lol

This sausage looks scared. Maybe it's because the sausage behind him is about to have his way with him.

Bruce looks great for his age, but he can't hit those high notes. Could be time to hang it up.

Great show. Bruce Dickinson really is one of the all time great front men. Tons of energy throughout the whole show.

I slept through Iron Maiden, but Alice Cooper was really good!

Posted by Anonymous | July 3, 2012 11:31 AM

Maiden was ok. I've seen them 20 times. They could have been better, could have been worse.

10:19/10:31/11:15/12:29 are the same person and has quite the hard-on for the members of maiden, their fans, and that one other guy (you know what I'm talking about, sonny boy!) :)

^12:29 here. You are incorrect. I am a music fan who appreciates performers who aren't afraid to embrace their theatrical side. Bruce is FABULOUS.

This was the most FABULOUS Maiden show of the last 20 years! Anyone that disagrees is not a true fan.

11:15 lulz, that dude is being held against his will. Poppa Bear has definitely had his way with him.

I saw Alice Cooper shopping in Macy's in the Roosevelt Field Mall before the Jones Beach show. Nice guy.

How is that for a metal god?

Posted by Anonymous | July 3, 2012 1:25 PM

^ dude, if I saw Alice in the mall, I would totally buy him a couple egg rolls at China Express and a 22 oz grape soda, then thank him for all the freaking memories!

1:35: Agreed!

Bruce is fabulous!!!!

He was struggling singing at Jones Beach, dropping verses and pulling the microphone away from his mouth when he couldn't hit the note. Sad to hear he was still struggling in New Jersey. I've seen them 4 times now during this last batch of tours and they never disappoint, but if his voice is starting to go I hope they bow out before it gets even worse.

THIS SHOW WAS FUCKING AMAZING!!!

wish you had more pictures of the sets and the pyrotechnice!

Alice Cooper resides in Phoenix, Arizona where he whole-heartedly supports the governor and the sheriff. He belongs to the baptist church which he attends regularly.

I thought it was a fun show and good setlist. Would have liked to see all old shit (up to and including 7th Son only), but what can you do. That production must be expensive as hell, all those automated Eddie pieces and all the pyro shit. Pretty impressive. Maybe that explains the high ticket prices a bit.

11:57 your point is what?

They didn't play anything beyond 7th Son.

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2012 11:16 AM

Yes they did. They played two songs from Fear of the Dark.
