Maiden go somewhere back in time to 1988
Iron Maiden will release a double-disc extended edition of classic 1989 live video Maiden England on March 25.
The band shot two nights of footage at Birmingham’s NEC in 1988 during their Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son world tour.
Available for the first time on DVD, the new version includes the previously unreleased encores: Running Free, Run To The Hills and Sanctuary, meaning the full 110-minute show can now be seen. Producer Kevin Shirley has created a brand new 5.1 surround sound mix, while Martin Birch’s original stereo mix remains.
A second disc contains a 40-minute film charting part three in the history of Maiden, featuring recent interviews with the NWOBHM giants, telling the story of the band’s career towards the end of the 1980s. Also included is the 90-minute documentary 12 Wasted Years, originally released in 1987.
Manager Rod Smallwood says: “We’ve been busy upgrading this concert footage for a long time with our in-house film producer and director Andy Matthews.
“We know how eagerly our fans have been awaiting the new version so we wanted to give it the best possible treatment.
“The current Maiden England world tour revisits much of the setlist and production from the 1989 VHS release, so it will be interesting to compare just how much has changed in terms of our 2013 live show production and the improvements we’ve been able to make to the set.”
