About the Actor
Bass player and founding member Steve Harris comments, For The Final Frontier Tour, it was really important to me that we filmed in South America as we re always so overwhelmed by the fans reaction when we go to that part of the world and I wanted to reflect that in the filming. After much consideration, we chose the Santiago show as we felt it was one of our best performances of the entire tour and to play at the prestigious Estadio Nacional was a landmark moment for us. For reasons known to our fans, it took a long time before we got to play our first show in Chile, and once we did get to play a show, the response was so phenomenal we just had to keep coming back, and it s got better and better each time!
This show also features the gigantic new Eddie. He wasn t due to make his appearance until our European leg of the tour later in 2011, but we managed to transport him across the sea in a special huge container just in time for the latter end of the South American dates, so it was great we were able to immortalize him for the DVD as he really has to be seen to be believed!
The concert was filmed digitally using 22 HD cameras and an octocam (a flying camera which captures aerial crowd scenes), recorded in both stereo and 5.1 audio and mixed by Maiden s longstanding producer, Kevin Caveman Shirley, all of which serves to accentuate the incredible atmosphere of this compelling performance.
Disc two of the DVD set is a bonus disc containing an 88-minute documentary, Behind The Beast. This is also an entirely in-house production by Maiden s own Krew, led by Andy Matthews, and is intended as an interesting and revealing high quality home movie for their fans to see how Iron Maiden put on a tour and what goes on behind the scenes at a show. The bonus disc also contains an extended version of the promo video Satellite 15...The Final Frontier, a video about the making of Satellite 15...The Final Frontier plus the opening video sequence to The Final Frontier World Tour.
Maiden s Final Frontier World Tour 2010-11 saw the band circumnavigating the planet for the third time in their customized Boeing 757, Ed Force One, piloted by lead singer Bruce Dickinson, and playing 98 shows in 36 countries to over 2 million fans.

Unfortunately, as I stated in the title, I can't watch this Blu-ray! Way too frantic and UNEDITED. Split screen galore, and not the good kind, where it holds and you can watch several camera angles, your choice. No, when it split screens you get the split image (2, 3 or 4 different frames) for about half a second. Then its off to the next screen. Do we really need to see every angle, every moment? The job of a GOOD EDITOR is to DECIDE what to show and for how long. Direct our focus and then KEEP it THERE for a few breaths at least. During guitar solos, just one camera on the guitar player please. -is this not simple common sense for a rock/metal oriented recording?
I realize this is an issue with many concert Blu-rays. This is not the first BD with frantic and hyper-speed, music video type editing. But it may just be the WORST I've ever seen. So Beware!
So my tip, turn off the TV, crank up the volume. With Maiden, its about the music anyway which deserves 5 stars, the watch-ability factor get 1-star. Overall 3 stars.
(Final Note: any Iron Maiden fans who have never heard Bruce Dickinson's Chemical Wedding album, should buy it immediately. It's what an Iron Maiden effort COULD SOUND like with a little musical/metal evolution, and hands-down RIVALS any Iron Maiden album in the last decade. Give it a spin.)
I like this setlist since I'm a bit tired of the old songs that are played over and over again. Dont get me wrong, I'm a die hard Maiden fan and love their old stuff, but I do also love their new stuff and would like to hear more new songs live. En Vivo deliver just that, and the band is as always in great shape.
En Vivo is much better than last one, and Death On The Road. I think the only thing I would complain about if I should is that they have some weird camera angels where they cut the picture in two, filming Janick Gers to the left and Nicko Mcbrain to the right of the screen for example. Now I dont have much problem with that, but it gets too much on this DVD.
Great live performance, and if you are into Maiden - Dont miss out on this.
This blu-ray really does showcase Maiden at their best. Even more amazing show is that Maiden play to a sold out crowd of 50,000 (or so Bruce says) in a large stadium setting, with a setlist based on NEW material, with a few classics thrown in there for good measure. The fans go WILD with every tune and the band's energy is just unbelievable, considering how old they are.
The band are in top shape, folks. Bruce brings back the mic stand for the first time since 1999, but even that doesn't stop him from giving it his all here. He still runs around the stage like a hyperactive 12 year old, and, which must have had men in the audience his age reminding themselves to hit the gym. And boy, he can hit the notes better than ever! The Talisman had me wowed, and was an indicator of the amazingness to come. Adrian improvises a bit here, and it sounds damn good. And Steve, Dave and Jan? Well, amazing as aways, I can always expect the best from my favourite band knowing I'm going to get nothing but the best :) and I'm beginning to think Nicko is an alien or something.Read more ›
That being said, personally, I liked the split screens. Every now and then it gets a little too much, but it really helps overall, as picture doesn't change every second or two like previous releases and it flows more naturally. I also enjoyed the sound, I think it's a little better than Flight 666, the base stands out more and gives more depth to the concert. Obviously the quality of the video is superb. Someone said here that it was filmed with RED cameras (which are top of the line cameras that were basically used for every single movie in the past few years). I don't know if that's 100% true, but nevertheless, it is in HD. The only thing about video is that sometimes Bruce's face is a little overexposed, obviously due to spotlights being aimed at him, but it's not too distracting.
I saw them on this tour live and I was really looking forward to this release. I have seen their old stuff and although their 80s work is one of the most influential and highly acclaimed in the metal community, I really enjoy their new songs as well. What was very interesting is the documentary. It really gave an in-depth look into how everything is brought together. I probably liked it more than Flight 666 documentary.
They are the same band as they were before, because they play for themselves. Going back to Live After Death, Bruce was always jumping like there is no tomorrow and Steve would run across the stage. Nicko was always a funny man out of all of them always making faces.Read more ›
