Iron Maiden Work On New Live DVD

Iron Maiden's April 8 and April 10 concerts in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Santiago, Chile, respectively, will be professionally filmed and recorded for a future DVD release. In a recent interview with Chile's Futuro 88.9 FM, Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris stated about the DVD upcoming shoot, "We will record two shows. We will use footage from both concerts for the DVD." "We have amazing supporters in Chile and Argentina and we want to show more of the audiences from those parts of the world. We already filmed some footage there for the 'Flight 666' movie, but only one song per country was used. We will now have a chance to show much more of the crowds in Chile and Argentina." "Wherever we go, we are always asked what the best audiences in the world are, and we always say that it is South America - Chile, Argentina and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Now we can show it." When asked if the setlist for the Buenos Aires and Santiago concerts will be the same as the one the band has been playing on the current "Final Frontier World Tour", Harris said, "The setlist that we are playing is basically the same we have been playing on this tour, what you have been able to see on Internet. The sets that we will do in Chile and Argentina will be the same, but for these two special shows that will be recorded, we have prepared more songs and a bigger production. So what you will see in Chile will be a long and big show." Regarding how many cameras will be used to capture the performances, Harris said, "I think it will be about 10 or 12. I had always been involved in the production and direction of the concert DVDs in the past, but we are now working with a very good company, the guys who made the documentary 'Flight 666'. They are the ones who are responsible for recording these shows, so for me at least it is a great relief." Iron Maiden was honored with a Grammy in the "Best Metal Performance" category in the pre-telecast ceremony at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards, which was held on February 13 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Iron Maiden was nominated for the track "El Dorado", from the band's 2010 album "The Final Frontier". "The Final Frontier" sold 63,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 4. "The Final Frontier" was Iron Maiden's fourth U.K. No. 1 album. The band previously topped the chart in 1982 with "The Number Of The Beast", in 1988 with "Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son" and in 1992 with "Fear Of The Dark".

    Diehard Maiden fan, And I love the live footage. Whenever they release a new album I hope to see professional live footage of it, its the best! Live Maiden material is always top knotch, fun to watch, and reminds me of of when I have seen them live. As for any cash cow like comments, I think thats a bit overboard. We all know Maiden have money, and have had it for quite some time. But you know what, they have millions of fans, they put them first, their loyal to them, themselves, and their music. So they have earned it, touring unending, bringing us brilliant performances night after night, year after year. I proudly support The Maiden machine, they have honestly earned what they have.

    They better have Starblind on here, that's a major deciding factor on whether or not I will buy this.

    ^ by top of their game, I mean in their live performances. I know a lot of people aren't fans of their latest material, so no flaming plz

    Argentinian crowd can make any concert look 10 times better than a normal one... i'm sure about that..

    Flight 666 was absolutely amazing in Blu-Ray. The picture quality and sound were the best I've seen. I got to see them live last summer and they played El Dorado which was absolutely amazing. I didn't care for it much on the actual album/single, but live, it takes on another life, much like Fear of the Dark.

    Everyone knows, or should, that Argentina has the best crowd of the world. Check this video for more proof:

    Big fan of Maiden here. My thoughts on constant live releases are as follows... Yeah it is kind of irritating that it is every couple of tours now, and there are always a handful of the same songs on each one... But on the other hand, I still think that Iron Maiden are rolling at the top of their game, and it could be worse right? They aren't playing sloppy as shit like Metallica for example They're still hugely fun to watch, so the dvd will be cool. I think what he's said about extra songs / bigger production is to counter the whole same-old-songs-each-dvd thing, which is neat. I'll probably end up buying. Flight 666 was a gift from a lady anyhoo, so I don't feel out of pocket personally. Up the Irons!

    More live footage the better as far as I'm concerned.

    WOW! I'm so happy! This is great news It's an honor that a band like Iron Maiden says we are one the best audiences in the world Argentina rules \m/

    I already bought the Flight 666 DVD which had a decent amount of live footage as well as an extraordinary documentary feel and this looks quite inferior so I don't see the point

    WOW! I'm going to the show in Argentina today! So awesome they are recording it on DVD! This will be amazing

    I think it's a shame they couldn't have included any footage from last year, then we would have ended up with a few more songs.

    The live release is not news, they announced it on March 15. However, I am excited to hear that there will be more songs, and that Steve Harris will be in no way involved with the editing. I love the guy, but it's not his forte.

    Basically. It'll the be the record company's doing, not the bands. Every crowd they play in front of is the best in the world. Don't take it seriously.

    yep, the crowd rules here in Latinoamerica, specially in Argentina and Brasil (not so sure about Chile). Thank you Maiden, it's our pleasure.
