Nita Strauss, Courtney Cox, Wanda Ortiz: what happens when you arrive ahead of schedule to an Iron Maidens show?

Jack Lue got to the show ahead of schedule, as a real pro does... grabbed the best spot and got ready to shoot the show... he even saved me a space... but my bad timing left me to grab some in the air shots, that you can see at the bottom of the post!

So you want to know what happens when you turn up two minutes late to an Iron Maidens show?  This was the NAMM presentation... I had to fight my way through to get close enough for this photo of Nita Strauss, Wanda Ortiz and Courtney Cox.

OK so you arrive two minutes too late... well just don't, arrive ten minutes early! Make sure someone has your space (Jack Lue did that part OK) If all else fails, switch to the 300 or 500 zoom and trust to luck. This was my 200. The place was crazy, crowd were loving it and the music was great. My hope is these
guys get to tour Europe as they are a show that you won't want to miss! I'll then apply for a photo pass!

The Iron Maidens were originally formed in June 2001 by vocalist Jenny Warren and bassist Melanie Sisneros, formerly of the Iron Maiden tribute band Wrathchild. Linda McDonald (drums) and Josephine Draven (guitar), both formerly of Phantom Blue, and Sara Marsh (guitar), joined Warren and Sisneros shortly afterward to form the band's first lineup.
