    I'll bet you know, I'm glad they're back.
    'Cause I had a noose, I can now cut loose.:D

    My all time favorite band.

    When I was a kid, thirty plus years ago, my friends used to always tell me they couldn't be my favorite band as they wouldn't last and who would I claim later in life. "Hells Bells," I would respond, cranked of course.

    It was my first album for rock I ever bought, as I had just started to get into Iron Maiden, and my mate lent me his recordss to listen to.

    I bought it at a market, and was staying with my nan and grandad on holiday. Went back there, put the headphones on, and was hooked :p

    Didn't see anything in Dallas. Figured that would be a pretty big venue.

    I would theorize once the Jerry's House (the new Dallas Cowboys stadium) is built, there will probably be some more attractions coming to the area.

    It seems to be the rage lately, all these big bands going on tour. There must be some real money in it.

    Off-topic:
    What did they do with all the money when they had these tours (bigger then, album sales, more merchandise sales, etc.) back in their prime? Or...

    Are they doing it for the Art?:D

    That has always been where the money is. That and paraphernalia.

    Album sales only make money for the record label.

    I think they are doing better now, than they did then. Ticket prices are higher, and I'm guessing they are smarter with their money now. A lot of good bands made a lot of money for other people back in the day.

    I'll be trying for AC/DC tickets on Oct 11 at 10:00 !!!! (y)
