Iron Maiden & Dream Theater played MSG (pics & setlist)

MSG

“Last night at MSG — in between hopping around the stage like an eager So You Think You Can Dance contestant and sharing the spotlight with a ten-foot, ax-shredding demon creature — Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson demonstrated that not even front men for legendary British metal bands were able to avoid The Decision. During a bit of stage banter, Dickinson mentioned the band had just played New Jersey and promptly received a hearty impromptu round of boos. “It’s real easy to wind you up, isn’t it?” Dickinson responded. “How would you feel if I mentioned LeBron James?” More boos! (By the way, you haven’t heard anyone say “LeBron James” until you’ve heard them say “LeBron James” in a theatrical British accent from the stage at MSG). Dickinson moved on, touching on the band’s recent Canadian trek … and got even more boos! “Wow!” a genuinely surprised Dickinson shot back. “You hate Canada even more than you hate LeBron James!”” [NY Magazine]

Dream Theater opened for Iron Maiden last night, July 12th, at Madison Square Garden (the very venue Wavves will open for Phoenix at in October). The two bands are on tour together, and as NY Mag pointed out, their show one night earlier was in NJ (at PNC Bank Arts Center). More pictures and the setlist from both shows (well, they were the same), below…
