Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson announced from the stage at this year's Download festival, which took place June 8-10 at Donington Park, Leicestershire, England, that the group's performance was being filmed for an upcoming DVD.

A two-minute video interview with Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris, conducted by NME.COM ahead of the band's appearance at Download, has been posted at YouTube.

As a grand finale to their festival/stadium summer tour, Iron Maiden will perform a special one-off performance at London's Brixton Academy on Sunday, June 24 in aid of The Clive Burr MS Trust fund. This will be Iron Maiden's final U.K. appearance for at least a year, and will be the last time they will perform this year's special set list of songs from their latest album "A Matter Of Life And Death" and the LP "The Number Of The Beast".

The show will be the last chance to see the spectacular stage production that the band have been performing with around the world, including Eddie and his tank up close for the last time. Special guests will be Lauren Harris and eight-piece Indian rock act Parikrama, who came to the band's attention when they supported Maiden in Bangalore in March, and will be the first time an Indian rock band has toured the U.K.

Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    maybe its just me but i think bruce dickinson is far from a suitable singer for a 'Metal' band... i dont even think i'd consider Iron Maiden heavy actually... but anyway its pretty cool that they filmed some stuff from download.. i wonder if they filmed My Chemical Romance getting bottled... ya know just to end the credits of the dvd with lol

Defo getting that dvd and if they edit out the sharon bashing ill be a lil bit gutted! yeah im guessin more Powerslave stuff,Bruce was hinting at the Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner: "When we play songs about albatrosses and mariners and things..." all i can say is: Roll on Download 08!!!

    I think it means the setlist will include songs from the Powerslave era...

    Anyone else notice they've followed up the last three albums with live packages as well now? I kind of saw this coming. But I'm not complaining, they're my favourite band, and the more shit they put out, the better. As long as the setlist is more varied than the last two live discs, it'll be cool.

    That's what they get for having VR on before them. VR should've headlined Friday, no question. The ban'ds really on fire these days!

    Freakin crazy man, MCR's music is ok but they don't really play their music, or so I think, I watched a video of them playing "Dead" and they didn't even play the opening solo. oh well yes?

    Man is it something to hear Harri say he's looking forward to Killswitch Engage... Cool short interview and can't wait for this DVD. Maybe a History Part 2, the late days...? After another album anyway

    Its cool that even though they recorded it for DVD they still allowed it to be streamed over the net. I like maiden, great music, and you get the feeling there nice guys.

    Yeah Maiden were pretty good, gotta say. MCR didn't get bottled off, they just got bottled and though i don't like them very much i have to admit they done well to keep going. Did anyone see the massive bottle wars just before Maiden? They were epic.
