GAME

There is a game, alright? It’s called “concert + city”. Musictivity regularly checks where the best bands are going to play concerts and then try to send an informative massage to fans of these bands, you know, about one selected place.

Iron Maiden will visit (during Legacy of the Beast Tour 2020) such a few great cities which have been already mentioned in Musictivity (so you can see few links below).

But in this case… In case of Iron Maiden in Tokyo, fans will get from Musictivity something special.

VIGILANTE

According to Cambridge English Dictionary, vigilante means “a person who tries in an unofficial way to prevent crime, or to catch and punish someone who has committed a crime, especially because they do not think that official organizations, such as the police, are controlling crime effectively. Vigilantes usually join together to form groups.”

Yeah.

I don’t think now about Bruce Dickinson talking about brutal security hitting innocent fans during concert neither about Eddie catching maidens.

Look for something that is hard to find
Searching somewhere deep inside your mind
Hope you find just what you’re looking for
Heaven’s waiting with an open door

Iron Maiden “When the River Runs Deep”

Iron Maiden will perform not once, but twice in the capital of country which is depicted in timeless classics like “Deep Purple Made in Japan”, “Judas Priest Unleash in the East” or “Maiden Japan” (“Heavy Metal Army”).

I really, really, REALLY, wanted to made a justice and describe Tokyo properly. Therefore I’ve reached out to one special band called Vigilante which is based in Tokyo and plays music somehow related to Iron Maiden but – as you will hear in video displayed below – developed own music style around true:

– heavy metal,

– power metal,

– thrash metal,

– progressive metal.

If metalcore-ish Killswitch Engage may be a special guest during Iron Maiden events in Australia and New Zealand 2020 then Vigilante would fit even better with Iron Maiden in Tokyo!

IRON MAIDEN IN TOKYO

Music, Culture, Concert, Metal, Iron Maiden

Vigilante about Iron Maiden and their city of Tokyo:

Why in your opinion it is worth to watch Iron Maiden concerts 38 years after their best album “The Number of the Beast”?

Vigilante: That also means that 38 years or more have passed since we first met Iron Maiden with Bruce Dickinson (of course everybody know that Iron Maiden had also other vocalists in the past). It’s amazing that he keeps himself a part of heavy metal scene so long. We will always remember Iron Maiden!

What is your current opinion about each Iron Maiden member?

Vigilante: Bruce Dickinson is still full of energy and we are looking forward for his next activities after being pilot, brewery owner, fencing player, author, and last but not least legendary vocalist.

Steve Harris is also a phenomenal engine of this monster band. He is ambitious to play not only in Iron Maiden but also in British Lion. In our opinion, he is a true icon among greatest heavy metal musicians.

Nicko McBrain is almost 70 years old but still can play finest heavy metal drumming and that’s a great thing! His character and drum playing style is definitely irreplaceable.

Dave Murray has always been with Maiden through all good and bad times nearly 50 years. His smile always makes people feel relaxed. He is also a good songwriter, although not a prolific composer, but his songs are distinctive and give good twists to Iron Maiden’s repertoire.

Adrian Smith is like a cornerstone or anchor that always keeps the band on track even when others gone wild on stage. He contributes to the band with many good and catchy songs.

Janick Gers is the third engine that actives Maiden fully on stage. He makes great job as a part of the guitar trio devoting himself to build a wall of guitars or emotionally beautiful triple guitar harmonies.

How (in your opinion) best heavy metal bands should to prepare themselves before going wild on stage?

Vigilante: Of course they should to play all albums before concert day for warm ups and then try to choose songs for ideal set list!

Which cultural landmarks would you recommend to see in Tokyo? Especially for somebody who will travel from another city or even from another country to see Iron Maiden in Tokyo.

Vigilante: We have many awesome landmarks to enjoy here in Tokyo, like:

– Tokyo Tower,

– Tokyo Sky Tree,

– Shinjuku,

– Shibuya,

– Roppongi,

– Ryogoku Sumo Stadium,

– Asakusa,

– Akihabara.

Beside that, we will have Olympic Games in Tokyo next year (2020) so it will be much more exciting experience to visit Tokyo!
