  1. The Hangover/I'm an Alcoholic Thread

    A White Russian doesn't take any unusual ingredients; it's typically just vodka, Kahlua, and milk/cream. I like to add some Bailey's just to make it even creamier.
  2. The only other difference was no pyro. Like I said also, I'll write up all my thoughts on the China gigs this weekend when I'm home, there's a lot to be said about both gigs. I did the second price tier for Beijing (I think RMB 800?) because they were so expensive. Shanghai was a bit cheaper, so I went for the top price tier. Still WAY more than almost any other Maiden gig I've been to though.
  3. Yeah, I love it. They actually used that artwork on some of the promo items for China and I thought it looked quite dodgy on that stuff, but after seeing the artwork on the shirt it's one of my favorites this year.
  4. Yeah, I was there tonight. Amazing show, maybe my favorite of the tour so far. And...I caught something at tonight's gig:
  5. The forum keeps crapping out for me at our hotel in Shanghai, so I probably won't write up any of my thoughts on the China gigs until I actually get home. Here's the event shirt though, and the first unique back:
  6. Holy shit, the show ended 8 hours ago, and I'm just still in awe that it happened. Everything went impeccably, it was one of the best Maiden gigs I've seen. I'll post a full review later once I get to Shanghai, but just very quickly the set was the shame, and the only visual changes to the show were no pyro and no flag on The Trooper.
  7. Inside the venue in Beijing now. I'll post my full thoughts after the gig, but I can already tell this will be the most unusual Maiden I've ever been to or ever will go to.
  8. Another great one tonight, though I do think last night was just a hair better. Bruce explained tonight why they played such a small venue - the short version is they felt they owed it to the people of Japan to do something really special after the cancellation in 2011 due to the earthquake, and they decided a pair of super intimate gigs was the way to do that.
  9. Actually, the Ruogoku is 13,000 at full arena capacity. They're only able to use about half of it because of how small the floor is. No one has an exact attendance number, but the general consensus is it holds 5,000-6,000. We're not really sure why it's such small shows in Tokyo this time, maybe just venue availability. I visited Budokan yesterday and noticed that was booked these two days. But I'm not complaining, a small intimate gig is great for me.

    Ah, we head back to Beijing the evening of the 27th Too bad, but I'll definitely check out some of the places and beers you've mentioned.
  11. Tonight was the first gig in Tokyo. What an amazing time! The venue is absolutely tiny, the floor only had maybe 20 rows of seats. We were 6th row right on the center aisle. The Japanese crowd was really interesting - it was dead silent in the venue before the show, but they absolutely lost their minds when Doctor Doctor started. Really intimate gig, Bruce was evening making jokes with individuals in the crowd. Can't wait to do it again tomorrow night! Tokyo event shirt:
  12. Axl/DC Roll Call

    I'll wait until the dates are announced, but I plan on doing every US show within driving distance of me (Probably about 6 gigs).
  13. The Hangover/I'm an Alcoholic Thread

    Awesome, all on my list to check out. So so are you in Shanghai? It'd be cool to meet up if possible.
  14. Shit, Angus got on stage for a couple songs? That's AWESOME. Gives me hope that Riff Raff will make the Axl/DC setlist
  15. The Hangover/I'm an Alcoholic Thread

    Awesome - thanks for all the info I'd definitely like to check out the craft brewery scene in Shanghai when I come back through for the gig next week. I'll have to check for Harbin when I get home, but I don't remember ever seeing it. The one I had this morning had an NBA label, so I figured they were a sponsor or something.
