Product Description

Amazon.com

Recorded during Iron Maiden's headlining 2001 performance at the Rio Rock Festival, this double CD finds the legendary metal outfit in fearsome form. Revitalized thanks to the return of original singer Bruce Dickinson for 2000's Brave New World, the one-time East London bar band clearly relishes tearing through old and choice new songs in front of 250,000 people--the biggest crowd they'd ever seen. This is traditional metal at its squealing, pummeling best. Established classics like "Wrathchild" and "Two Minutes to Midnight" reemphasize all that is unashamedly great about proper heavy metal, including the rock-solid riffing, the brick-outhouse rhythms, and the outrageous solos. The early 1980s hits "Number of the Beast" and "Run to the Hills" prove that Iron Maiden can deliver a sing-along chorus that will rattle around the inside of your skull for hours, if not days. What really makes Rock in Rio, though, is the near studio-quality production and the rabid reaction of the South American throng, who do their best to drown out the band. Here is proof, if any is needed, that Dickinson and company are up there with the rock greats. --Ian Watson

Each live performance is an incredible experience.

Brave New World is tied for my favorite Iron Maiden album, so it is great to see the tracks from that album on here.

Well I must say that I am surprised! 'Rock In Rio' includes great set list, two live cds, extra audio samples from their twelve albums and footage from their up-and-coming 'Rock In Rio' DVD--???? What else can an Iron Maiden fan ask for? The actual live performance is fantanstic and is so much tighter than previous Maiden performances (i.e. 'A Real Live One/A Real Dead One', 'Live At Donnington' which lacked the energy and synchronisation that we expect from IM). I couldn't tell you what a treat it is to hear Adrian back playing the guitar with Maiden again--with Dave and Janick still there, it is an amazing triple-guitar attack. I couldn't have recieved much of a better birthday present than this; I am really looking foward to the DVD of 'Rock In Rio'. Heck, I don't even think that 'Live After Death' was as good as this. Dickinson's voice is back in top-form, Harris is relentess playing bass, Nicko never misses a beat and everyone sounds great. All metal fans will love this album--buy it if you are a true fan of metal. There are 250,000 people in the audience and they sing-along and roar through it all the way. Listen to "The Clansman" and tell me that that is not an emotional experience. Enjoy.
Peace, bros.

Wow. Imagine being part of the crowd during Iron Maiden's stop to Rio de Janerio for their Brave New World tour. Just think being part of 250,000 screaming brazilians who know every word to every song that Iron Maiden perform. Also imagine Iron Maiden's best live album released since Live After Death. Finally, imagine Bruce Dickinson, the voice of Iron Maiden, back with the band to stay!

Maiden get things going with a bang with the opener, The Wickerman. They continue on with Ghost of the Navigator and Brave New World. The song 2 Minutes to Midnight is breathtaking, along with the song, Blood Brothers. Two of my favorite tracks come from...yes...songs from the two Blaze albums he did with Iron Maiden - The Sign of the Cross and The Clansman. Even though Bruce did not write the material, he performs them with so much emotion and passion. The Evil that Men Do and Fear of the Dark sound equally good. The songs Number of the Beast, Hallowed be thy Name, and Run to the Hills caps off a brilliant live show.

Iron Maiden are my favorite band of all time. This live album is just as good as Live After Death and a great compliment to anyone's metal collection. Maiden continues to make incredible music with their Dance of Death release last year. I was able to see them perform in Los Angeles, CA for their American leg of that tour. It was a beautiful experience. Please buy this album, along with Live After Death!! These are ESSENTIAL to own for Maiden fans! This is NOT to be missed! Purchase the live DVD!!

I have to admit this live Maiden album surprised me at how good it really is. The thing that amazes me is how a crowd of 250,000 people sang along with Bruce and sounds so damn good. Usually when a crowd sings along with a live band performance it totally blows, but with Rio I was totally amazed at how well Bruce and the Maiden pulled this off. Bruce Dickinsons vocals are ripe and blistering. There is alot of "Brave New World" material on this cd, because "Brave New World" was released several months before this January 2001 "Rio" show. "Brave New World" was new and fresh so alot of material from this BNW was played on this Rio cd. The early 1980s songs were performed beautifully. There were also three guitar players on this Rio cd. Believe me Maiden needed three guitar players to pull of some these excellent live song performances. Bruce performs "The Clansman" and "Sign Of The Cross", believe me Bruce sang this Blaze material really well, and actually sounds better than Blaze himself. Whatever Blaze lacked in the vocal range in these two songs Bruce more than adequetly filled in, and it shows when you hear these two songs performed on this "Rio" cd. The only thing that annoyed me, there was no "Wasted Years". After all these years Maiden still got that great live performance magic. I did'nt think Rio would be so good, I have to admitt this Rio cd rocks. Any metal hard or rock fan should own "Rock in Rio" along with "Live After Death"

First off, this gets 5 stars because it's Maiden. And they're the best band around, still, after all these years.
Now, I admit I was almost yawning at the thought of 'Yet Another Live Album'. I mean, even Maiden Junkies like me can only have so many live renditions of the SAME OLD SONGS!
Alas, Rock In Rio brings the junkies 8 songs never officially released live (Wicker Man, Ghost, BNW, Blood Brothers, Sign of the Cross, Mercenary, Dream of Mirrors, and The Clansman). Of course, you still get all the regulars just in case you really wanted a 9th live version of NOB to add to your collection!
Listening to this disc brought back all the great memories of this tour. The quality is great, the production is nearly flawless and Bruce's voice holds up well. You can feel the energy here is much better than Maiden's last live offerings (Real Live/Dead One) which were tired, borish and lacking Adrian Smith. A very important piece of the puzzle.
If you like Maiden (and you should) this disc is a can't-miss.
