Blabbermouth gets all kinds of weird stories sent in to them. I know, with time, my readers will also start to send me tips. But this blog is still young…less than two months old. I’m giving you guys time. But this story, I just had to lift.
A Norwegian newspaper has obtained a bar tab purported to be one Iron Maiden racked up two nights before performing in Bergen, Norway. Maiden and their crew “spared no expense” during their visit to Finnegan’s Irish Pub, drinking more than $3,000 in booze. That’s fucking metal, dude.
That’s 78 pints of Guinness, 32 glasses of Heineken draft beer, 57 bottles of Hansa beer, 27 Slippery Nipple shots [Edit: The most un-metal shot you can get; that must have been for the chicks they were hanging out with] and seven Olden Boble Naturells.
“Based on what we heard, the band was happy,” bartender Fredrik Larsen told the Bergens Tidende paper. “They mingled with other guests and seemed to have fun.” Some of the Finnegan’s Irish Pub staff even got to play billiards with the Maiden. That’s fucking rad.
