About the Actor
EN VIVO! was filmed on April 10, 2011, in front of over 50,000 ecstatic fans at the Estadio Nacional, Santiago, during the Round The World In 66 Days leg of The Final Frontier World Tour, and captures a magnificent performance by the band, ardently embraced by the legendary Latino passion and energy of their Chilean fans. With spectacular stage backdrops, dynamic musicianship and a literally jaw-dropping appearance by Eddie, this live show encapsulates to perfection the heart and soul of Iron Maiden 2011.
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.

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. Adrian and Dave, for the most part, were always standing next to each other on the left side of the stage. The only addition was Janick, which, again, didn't change either from their early 90 releases.
I think the documentary really shows how they feel about what they do. They didn't fall apart years ago and blew their money off and then started reunion tours to get some quick cash. They've been around since 1975, and they are not going anywhere. They play more countries, bigger stadiums and their albums are hit after hit. Just look at their albums in the past 10 years, it's been steadily moving up in charts with their last release reaching nearly No.1 spot all over the globe.
So I'm writing this for those who don't know as much about Iron Maiden. Watch this - as well as Flight 666 - and all will be revealed to you. Both films include excellent recent concert footage as well as superb behind the scenes documentary footage. Both movies are surprisingly engaging and are done with exceptional care and quality.
Most who watch these movies will see band members they will actually like, admire, and relate to - regular (but extremely accomplished) guys in a not so regular profession.
Even fans that have heard some of this material many times, own Flight 666, and have seen them live hundreds of times, will still marvel at the quality of En Vivo! And when they are finished with the concert footage they will still have the all new documentary footage to look forward to - footage that's worth the price all by itself.
Truly, this is as good as it gets.
I look forward to watching the concert, as what I saw so far was hard to stop watching (but I had work in the morning). The sound couldn't be any better. I think it's better than the last DVD, which wasn't anything to complain about. Bruce especially sounded great. And the picture and shots look stunning.
It's not hard to see why this is a top seller.
In regards to this DVD, if you like the newer Maiden this is a good show. I don't find the split screen as annoying as other reviewers. I think it makes the DVD more enjoyable to watch more than once. Each time I see something I didn't see before due to the split screens. I think the sound quality and mixing is excellent.
The second disc is enjoyable. Behind the Beast is fun to watch if you liked the Flight 666 thing. I enjoyed the making of the video piece as well. All in all, buy if you like newer Maiden. If not, maybe this would be a good introduction.
