Iron Maiden's Book of Souls Tour

Good morning and Happy Wednesday. I'm sitting here with my cup of coffee thinking about how my kids will be back in school next week. Seriously, where did the Summer go? I get spoiled with Summer in that I don't have to get everyone up and out the door, so I can take my time every morning getting ready at my leisure. It's also nice not having to keep up with the more hectic pace of the school year as my life is already pretty busy, but, at the same time, I know that Nature Girl is ready to get back to her friends. Summer can be more boring for her now that big brother has a job and a life of his own. Alas, I digress.

Last month, I told you about how my husband and I drove down to Kansas City for the evening to go see Iron Maiden's The Book of Souls tour. I've been a Maiden fan since I was 14 but had never gotten the opportunity to see them live. You can imagine then, that this was a pretty exciting event for me! It's always a good time to see your favorite musicians, no matter how old you or they are. They didn't disappoint and we had an excellent time hearing some old favorites and some new ones off their latest album. It was also a chance to visit with my friend Audrey who also went.





Their semi truck was parked outside the Sprint Center in Kansas City (where they played) so we made sure to take some pictures of ourselves next to it.





The stage before the concert began. Our seats were pretty decent!





I like this picture a lot. The concert was just beginning and you can see the size of the crowd.





They had a large video screen up, and they showed an Eddie movie short that fit with their Book of Souls theme. 





A shot of the entire band on stage. I took all these pictures with my Samsung Android smartphone, and it was so hard to get a non-blurry photo for some reason. I've tried to clean these up the best I could, so hopefully you can get the gist of it all.





I took this shot off the video screen. I'm glad it was there as it gave everyone a chance to see the band closeup. Here's Bruce Dickinson, singing away.






















It was a fun night, and I'm glad I got to check another thing off my bucket list. Have you gotten to see your favorite bands? Are there any bands you wish you could see? If so, do you think you will get a chance to see them play live one day? Let me know in the comments!

I hope you enjoyed my less-than-stellar pictures, even though they aren't that bad! Have a great rest of your week.
