The gig itself was brilliant, with Iron Maidens 7th son inspired set going down in history.

For me i had just seen some of the biggest bands in the history of metal.
Similar panic erupted in our house when it was broadcast on BBC News that a riot was occuring at the Download Festival at Donington Park in 2006 (the second year I had attended the festival).

I didn't even realise a riot had occured! I was fast asleep in my tent!
