Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A souvenir from the 2001 Rock in Rio festival, this set proves that Iron Maiden not only are among the elite heavy-metal purveyors of all time but can still shred onstage with the best of them. The British sextet holds its audience of a quarter-million in thrall for two hours, opening with a pummeling "Wicker Man" and wending its way through nearly three decades of hard-rocking tales of the mythic and supernatural: "The Mercenary," "The Trooper," "The Evil That Men Do," "The Number of the Beast," and ending with the ubiquitous "Run for the Hills." Concert footage was edited by bassist Steve Harris; obviously attuned to his band's rhythms, he ensures the visuals are as in-your-face as the music. A second disc spends 50 minutes showing band members doing non-rock & roll things offstage, like vocalist Bruce Dickinson's predilection for fencing and flying planes. A short "Day in the Life" featurette, brief group interviews, and the band's photographer Ross Halfin's photo diary round out the bonus disc. --Kevin Filipski

5.0 out of 5 stars Rio, Welcome To Iron Maiden December 19, 2002
Format:DVD
January 19, 2001 marked perhaps the highest point in Iron Maiden's career. It was approximately 25 years before this date that Steve Harris, Dave Murray and a plethora of their early members were gigging all around the East End and throughout their hometown with ambitions to be on top of the world. On that day in January, they triumphed over ambition as one of the headliners at the Rock in Rio festival, playing before 250,000 people. This DVD isn't just a live concert; it's a part of Heavy Metal history.
Iron Maiden has always been known for their over-the-top performances and this DVD definitely captures the best of the best. Every member puts everything they have into playing the music. Disc One of the set is the actual live show, edited and mastered by Steve Harris himself. Disc Two is some bonus footage including interviews, a photo gallery, web site links and a portion entitled 'A Day In The Life'. The last of which I believe can also be found on the Rock In Rio double album.
Disc One. The quality is very good. It's clean and crisp. I didn't find any problems with it at all. Obviously, if you've heard the double CD, you'll know what the sound quality is. However, you experience the full effect of the music and the show, you should probably have two speakers on your TV. With just one, some of the sound is lost (in my case, all of Janick's guitar parts aren't heard). I don't know if it's the DVD but do yourself a favor anyway.
The footage itself is amazing, in my opinion. Shot from a series of different cameras, Steve Harris viewed all of it and spliced it all down to create the two hours of footage seen.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great show. Embarrassing Production. April 30, 2005
Format:DVD
This is a great band and a great show. The set list is perfect. The sound is great. Awesome picture quality. But why on earth are there so many cuts? The picture changes way too many times. This is how a film school student would put it together. With that many cuts per minute, how the hell are you supposed to enjoy the show? Are they trying to hide something? Did the band lack energy? I love the band, but I think it was a mistake for Steve Harris to cut this himself. I never criticise unless I can do better myself... and I have (see Manowar's Hell on Earth's Part 2, 3 and 4). Just because you have 18 cameras, doen't mean you have to use them all within the space of a minute. It's not modern and it's not cool. It is embarrassing. Live After Death is still a great production. Why go backwards! Live DVDs, like a good wine, should be allowed to breathe a little. I look forward to the next Maiden DVD. Hopefully things would have settled down a little and we can all enjoy the show!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Show!!!....There Is Life After Death!!! August 29, 2002
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is without question the best live show Iron Maiden has done since "Live After Death" was released in 1985. The only draw back for me was the song list. I wanted more classic and less recent. It has both, but the new songs like "Bloodbrothers", and "The Ghost Of Navigators" didn't need to be here IMO.....
To be quite honest, I've never seen Iron Maiden play tighter than this. B. Dickinson sounded great, the trio of guitars sounds much better live as well IMO. The stage is awesome as usual, and the crowd is one of the largest I've ever seen....
The quality of this DVD is top shelf, as is the sound and camera work. I was very happy after seeing this for the first time. Actually, as much as I hate to say it, I was expecting a bunch of old geezers struggling to stay on top of their form. What I witnessed, kicked me in the teeth!!!...Maiden has lost nothing!
This will certainly go down as one of the best live Heavy Metal performances you can buy on DVD today. Maiden is in top form here, and they've proven that they are the true "Gods Of Heavy Metal".....
"Rock In Rio" = 4 1/2 stars...."Live After Death" = 5.
UP THE IRONS!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two thumbs Way Up the Irons .. Maiden never lost a step ! February 16, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very long time Maiden fan posting. Like a lot of the reviewers here, I lost interest in Maiden after the Live after Death/Somewhere in Time period. Honestly, it was more of my life/priorities changing, than Maidens music. Does this DVD ever prove that point. I'm still shocked/stoked at how GREAT this DVD is ! I can't figure out what took me so long to pick it up. Maybe it was the low expectations I had regarding song titles I wasn't familiar with ... or the reviews regarding the camera angles/changes. Whatever it was disappeared the second Adrian hits the first chords of Wicker Man ... actually the build up to that point gives you goosebumps. There ARE a TON of camera changes, and yeah as a guitarist, I would have liked to have seen a little more solo sections shown longer up close ... but Harris didn't totally blow it with the rapid changes ( he really should have toned it a bit down though ). The changes keep you as a viewer constantly absorbed in each song. Seeing, and most importantly capturing the energy of all the band members at any given time is damn hard to display over a tv screen. Even seeing them live with the whole spectacle you miss a lot ... ESPECIALLY with a stage that big. I never thought I'd see a Maiden production to rival Live after Death, and although the stage set up was better in 85, this production with all the camera angles exceeds it for the viewer. I saw Maiden up close in 85 at Long Beach Arena when they filmed and recorded Live after Death. I also saw them sitting further back for the Somewhere in Time tour at Irvine Meadows. Up close, you have a limited view ... turn your head to see one thing, and you miss a couple others. Far back, you see the stage/light show better, but a bunch of ants running around the stage. I think Harris realized this too ... Read more ›
