Bruce Dickinson: Athens 2002 Full show. Lecabettus Theatre, Athens, Greece. 21.07.02

 

Description

 

This one has been taken for a video, the show in fact has great audio moments in general but some songs are too crowdy with fans talking around and screaming, well this was from 2002 tour without Band Of Gypsies or Adrian Smith, for years I thought Alex Dickson was the only guitar player over this tour, since the guitars sound so weak I thought was a problem of just one guy, but as a matter of fact I found he had 2 guitar players and the real line up of this tour.

 

From Blabbermouth: IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson will utilize a touring band composed of former SKUNKWORKS bandmate/guitarist Al Dickson, ex-THE ALMIGHTY/ALICE COOPER guitarist Pete Friesen, SACK TRICK bassist Chris Dale, and SACK TRICK drummer Robin Guy during his upcoming European summer festival appearances

 

And the reason to donít have the last line up used over 1998 -1999 tour.

 

From Blabbermouth: It becomes a question of gathering people up from the ends of the earth and then it becomes a huge production and that's not what I want to do. Plus the fact that the gigs are actually spaced a month apart. Suddenly I'd have to fill in the dots and then all of a sudden I'd be touring all the way through the summer and that's not what I want to do.

 

I'm not sure how Roy feels about coming over doing one gig then going back to America, coming over doing one gig and going back to America. It's a bit pointless. And what I like about working with the SACK TRICK guys is I'm working with a band. I've always tried to have a band that is like a real band. And if you put people into a situation where they don't know the guys then stuff can get weird. So I like to keep it a nice tight little unit. SACK TRICK guys are brilliant. They've got great morale they're really fun guys to be with it's really simple and it doesn't preclude me, at some future date, putting together a complete band with Dickie and Roy and going out and touring the flesh pots of the western world.

 

Well at the end for me this tour sounded weak with that line up, they are not bad musicians but they arenít the real line up who have more quality.
