Talk about being at the right place at the right time!  I lucked my way in to getting a free box seat ticket to last night’s Iron Maiden show.  Now, I’m not a huge Iron Maiden fan but I like a few of their songs, I figured this will be a rocking concert and freebie box seat tickets are hard to pass up on.  So yeah, got the royal treatment with free pizza, free wings, free drinks, free popcorn and even a free Iron Maiden t-shirt!  To sum it up, the concert was just amazing.  Iron Maiden played the hell out of the MTS Centre and the fans (including myself) were all going wild.  Hard to describe exactly how awesome the concert was so here’s some video from my Canon SD700IS.

Just an awesome show!  You can tell by all the views and comments on the videos that everyone else had a great time!

As my nerd-dom reached a new height, I went to Video Games Live last night and I must say that it was a pretty awesome show.  Quite a few people had full costumes on such as Mario, Link, Master Chief (in full gear!) and a group of people dressed-up as Final Fantasy 7 characters.  I just wore a Super Mario t-shirt and was pretty impressed to see all the other people that had Nintendo related shirts on.  Even saw someone else with the same Mario shirt that I was wearing!

The show itself was pretty good starting off with a montage of video and music from video games starting with Pong and moving up through the years.  Pretty impressive to see a lot of them that I’ve played a little lately via MAME.  The music and video segments were all top-notch and the ‘interactive’ parts of the show where they had audience members go on stage to play games and win prizes were fun for the whole crowd.  A couple people were lucky enough to win a PS3 or Xbox 360.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t one of them.

Great night though.  If you are in to video games, you should definitely check out the show.
