    Being the lifelong Maiden fan that I am, an admitted fanboy and damned proud of it, I received my copy of their latest DVD (Blu-Ray format) in the mail earlier this week and have gotten a chance to watch it a few times through and all I can say is in 2012 Maiden is still very much a relevant heavy metal band.

    They display more energy than bands half their age and always deliver live, and the crowds always respond. Watching this show in front of 50,000 rabid Maiden fans brought back memories of the great "Rock in Rio" show - damn those South Americans crowds love their Maiden.

    While many in the modern metal world may dismiss them as being well past their prime, it's certainly not on display in theri live performances. They are still, at least to me, the defining band of the Arena/Stadium metal days and always worth the price of a ticket or if one was unable to attend, the cost of a DVD.

    Great performance, great crowd, great video shoot with great sound. I particularly liked that they used a lot of split screen editing instead of the more modern jerky camera to camera, angel to angel switching found in many concert DVDs these days.

    So if you are a Maiden fan, or even if your not, it's a great concert and an example to younger performers what 6 guys with an average age of 55 can still accomplish in a live setting - kicking ass and delivering the goods.

    Up the Irons!!!!!!! :headbang::headbang::headbang:

    Saw them on the Somewhere Back In Time tour and it's easily, easily the best show I've ever been to. Granted they were not playing newer stuff but still I can imagine I would have been just as stoked. One of the best bands ever to exist.

    Hearing Blood Brothers on that preview made me open Spotify and play Brave New World. LOVE IT


    EDIT: AND SHIT, hearing Iron Maiden the song made me put their first album on que.

    great band live too bad I can't stand anymore their latest albums, totally uninspired. There are few songs that are great but overall the magic on the records is gone.
    At least live they fucking rock ;)

    Best fucking band of all times.

    I've seen many Thrash or Death metal bands with all their higain shits, but still sounding weaker and with less energy than Iron Maiden.

    saw them on this tour when they went through Spain, also in Venezuela in Somewhere Back in Time. Whoever denies their live power is fooling himself.

    Adrians Lead Tone is worth buying it for. Used to be a massive Davey fanboy in the 80's, but Adrians phrasing/expression has grown on me massively.

    I have to complain about the spilt screen thing though, it always bothers me when bands do that, I never know what to look at and it makes me dizzy. Reminds me of Scenes from New York, excellent show, crappy editing. To each his own of course, but I've never liked it at all.

    Adrians tone is awesome !! that les paul gold top and a set of EL 34s are pure sonic damage

    ....whats even more interesting is that Dave Murray played a les paul when in Melbourne and the tone ripped my face clear off

    always been a huge fan of the maiden solo tone :OMG:
