I was 16 and my brother was 13. I had been a fan since 1988, but this was to be my first concert. I was too late for Seventh Tour Of A Seventh Tour, but had the chance in 1990. But for mysterious reasons I was not in Drammenshallen that year.

This was the first time Maiden was playing the new concert venue, Oslo Spectrum. We were exited and not very experienced concertwise, due to age and bad music taste pre-88.
Testament warmed up and the crowd were fired up for some great music.
