Iron Maiden ‘Maiden England ’88′ Concert To Be Released On DVD

IronMaiden.com

Iron Maiden fans rejoice! The band’s much sought after ‘Maiden England ’88′ live set will finally make its way to DVD on March 25.

Filmed during the band’s ‘Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son’ tour, the concert film has been a missing piece of the Iron Maiden catalog for a long time. As Maiden manager Ron Smallwood explains, “We’ve been busy upgrading this concert footage for a long time, with our in-house film producer and director Andy Matthews working tirelessly to weave his magic yet again!”

The film was directed and edited by bassist Steve Harris, and the DVD will also include a brand new 5.1 surround mix by producer Kevin Shirley. The band have been revisiting this era on their recent ‘Maiden England World Tour,’ playing a similar set list and utilizing various staging elements from the 1988 tour.

Disc one features the original concert film, upgraded, while the second features a nice handful of treats, including a 40 minute documentary covering what they are calling ‘Part Three’ of the history of Iron Maiden. This features interviews with band members as well as Smallwood, and carries their story from the mid ’80s through the end of the decade.

In addition, the disc will include a 90 minute feature entitled ‘Twelve Wasted Years,’ that is also making its DVD debut. Originally released in 1987 as a long form home video, this feature includes archive interviews, concert footage and promo videos. ‘Twelve Wasted Years’ has also been given the remastered treatment. And if that weren’t enough, ‘Maiden England ‘88′ will also be available via audio CD, vinyl and download.
