Iron Maiden Bogota – No Riot This Time
The stage was set for an explosive concert in Colombia this weekend as the legendary Iron maiden took to the stage for the first time since the riots fuelled appearance in 2009.
Online magazine Terra was there to witness the concert live, which was packed with a huge police and security presence to make sure the show went off without a hitch. The last time the Irons visiting the city is resulted in many arrests and wild rioting but it seems the extra 1000 strong police force this time managed to keep the peace and the road closures around the venue meant fans could leave without clashes.
Over 8,000 Iron Maiden fans were given a special commerative ticket this time, a sign of appreciation from the band for their fanatical following in South America.
The band didn’t close with the pyrotechnic show as usual but the fans still left in awe of the performance and feeling extremely happy with what they had seen from these metal gods.
We for one can’t wait for the next instalment of the tour which kicks off on Wednesday in Peru, Lima and the soon to be followed epic show in Sao Paolo, Brazil this Saturday.
