IRON MAIDEN TO CONTINUE ‘THE LIVE COLLECTION’ REMASTERED SERIES
1 May 2020
The fifth set of Digipak CD titles in Iron Maiden’s ‘The Live Collection – Remastered’ will be released 19 June. The titles included in the release are the seminal live recordings ‘Live After Death’ and ‘Rock In Rio’.
‘Live After Death’ was recorded at Long Beach Arena, California in March 1985 on the band’s legendary year-long World Slavery Tour which started in Poland in August 1984. It comprised 187 shows around the globe and turned Iron Maiden into one of the biggest bands on the planet.
The album, which also features additional tracks recorded at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, is widely regarded as one of the greatest live albums of all time.
‘Rock In Rio’ was recorded on 19 January 2001, on the final night of Iron Maiden’s Brave New World Tour. The performance was in front of 100,000 fans and was subsequently broadcast globally on TV.
