Post Maiden - Toronto/Canada BOS tour merch prices?
Anyone have any experience with merch pricing at Maiden shows on recent tours? Canadians especially.

I hate expensive merch. However I caved when I saw them last year. $50

Last year the t-shirts were 50 bucks. Hoodies cleared 100, and I think I paid 75 for an all-over print t-shirt. The saving grace is that at least their merch always looks badass, and they usually print up some city/region specific shirts as well.

I've got to really like the shirt if I'll drop that much cash on it. Chances are that I'll be being super selective at 'Maiden since Metallica is playing the next night and that isn't going to be any cheaper in terms of merch.

I really want to buy one of the Red and the Black English Football jerseys on Saturday, but think it's $125 or so.
Might have to be rather drunk to talk myself into that, but we shall see.

:roll:

The thing I'll be hunting for is one of the date specific lithographs that they've been selling. That's the only thing at the Metallica show that I will be aggressively looking for. Hopefully it's easier to get one than it was when GNR played at Skydome last year. I can't remember how many merch tables I ran around to before I finally found a table that had one left, but it was definitely more than two or three :lol:

I read that Metallica are having a pre show merch sale at some store in Toronto with lots of rare shit that won't be at the show. Might have read that on the BWBK main news page.

Yup. They're doing pop-up stores at most if not all cities on the current tour. I'll be checking that shit out for sure. I don't know if I'll find anything cool, but it's certainly a decent way to kill an hour or two in the city since I'm hoping to come into town early and beat traffic.

From their website:

Next up, Toronto!! You can visit us at Artscape Sandbox at 301 Adelaide St West in Toronto starting Friday, July 14th when the doors open at 3:00 PM. The store will include tour merchandise, unique items only found at the pop-up stores including lithographs, coolers, NFL compliant clear bags, the exclusive live recording from Webster Hall on vinyl and lots more. You’ll also be able to enter to win cool prizes like snake-pit passes and autographed goodies.

Hours of operation are:

Friday 3PM-9PM
Saturday 10AM-9PM
Sunday 10AM-4PM

If Maiden shirts are $50 in Canada, that's in line with the $40 they were going for here. Merch, comparatively given the exchange rate, was far cheaper in the UK where shirts were closer to $30.

They have pretty much the same shirts they had on the 2016 tour which is a bit disappointing if you saw that tour last year. Just 2 new ones really, one of them is pretty nifty though.

No soccer jerseys for sale. If you want one of those you'll have to order it from their shop.

And Exorcist - I'd bet on a Canada tour shirt for Toronto and QC. Show specific merch is always the best.

I'll be hitting up both Maiden and Metallica this weekend. Can't wait. :m:

I've not purchased a single item of merch at a concert since 1989. refuse to.
(but i did go crazy on 10/31/89 at the King Diamond show at NY's old Ritz, having purchased two t-shirts and a KD cap!)

$50 for a fucking t-shirt? :spit:

Way to treat your legions of loyal fans! i'm sure they are rare though right? Like only hundreds of thousands printed for the tour? They need the money though... you know... to fuel their airplane their frontman pilot flies them around in. :roll:

Makes sense to me. People steal music. Bands are gonna recoup that cost somewhere. Fans dug their own hole on that front.

But how many people are actually going to buy a $50 shirt? We've only had one person here so far say they caved last year... the youngen.

If any Iron Maiden audience I've been a part of is an indication, I'd bet that they'll sell an obscene amount of merch. Remember, their audience is older and has more money to spend. Maiden fans give KISS fans a run for the money in the "we buy stupid shit" department, and I am no exception :lol:

Put me in the "older we buy stupid shit" department. Bought two shirts and a patch at the Maiden show in Vegas last week. Shirts were $40 each and the patch was $10.

I'd guess that at least 75% of a Maiden audience buys some sort of merch. Of that probably most pony up for t-shirts. They charge that because they know folks will pay.

I bought a $40 shirt in Winnipeg in 2012 and it is Canadian themed with Eddie riding a moose, fight me!

Not trying to justify, but Iron Maiden has never played less then a 8 hour drive away from me so I don't really mind paying that much since I'll never see them again most likely.

$50 is getting into it's not worth it territory...

This is the wrong band for this argument.
