2008-06-30/07-09 M.A.U.-Europe Tour Leg 1
Friday, July 4th 2008, London
On Friday, the rest of the exucutive board of MAU joined and so Metal_Mike, Nomadofvienna and Maidenaustria flew from Bratislava to London.
After two hours of “chewing gum anti-gravitations-tests” and smelling neighbours we finally sniffed the cool English air.
After Rudytrooper666 had picked us up from the tube and we had checked in, we went for some Food and afterwards straight to the IMFC photo-shooting
in front of the London Tower respectivel the tower Bridge.
There we met our Finnish member Jarmo, German member Penny, JBOJake, Ironmartin666 and German Tommy, as well as lots of old aquaintances. (sorry if I forgot anybody).
Afer some real great “Maiden, Maiden, Maiden” shouting, which attracted courious looks of the tourists and estimated 14829 photos taken, the baggage moved on the Tower Bridge.
There, we played the same game again and then right to the next appointment.
Ruskin Arms – Pre-Show-Party!
After going on the tube for one hour and a little footwalk we entered again the “Holy Halls” (which will be demolished in November 08!!) and again we saw old-known faces.
Beside of a FC merch-stand and an Eddie's Bar merch-stand there were many other things which delighted the heart of a Maiden fan.
sometimes we had the opportunity to take a foto with MS-suffering Clive Burr, Terry Rance and Dave Sullivan as well as Steve Lazarus and his wife Sue, a picture with both “Companion” authors Marco Gamba and Nicola Visintini, the French femal FC President and Dave Lights.
Hi-On Maiden played an phantastic gig thus confirming their reputation as being the bet Maiden Tribute Band.

This was one of the best organised events by the FC! After a quite long, but very entertaining journey with the night bus we fell asleep with glowing ears and expectations of a great Twickenham concert.
So far- “No sleep 'til Twickenham…”
