Iron Maiden kicking a ball after blowing the speakers
Iron Maiden @ MSG

The sound suddenly and unexpectedly went off during Iron Maiden's set at their sold out show in NYC last night (June 15, 2008). One second there was really loud heavy metal blasting out to 20,000 headbanging fans at Madison Square Garden. The next second it got really quiet from the stage and then stayed that way for about 10 minutes. With music out of the question and technicians scrambling around the stage, the band entertained us by showing off their (and their mummy's) skills at football (they're from the UK)....

After that things went back to normal and Iron Maiden finished up their two hour set of 80's hits (relatively speaking).
