"Now the Maiden England tour all very exciting, but let's not forget the little tour we did last year - you know the one with the plane, the around the world one... Well, for those of you UK based, I'm happy to say that those lovely people at BBC4 will be giving you a chance to relive it from 10 PM on August 3rd.
First up is Behind The Beast - spend time behind the scenes of the epic tour with our lovely crew, as they make sure nothing goes on fire or falls over from Moscow to South America and back. Then from 11 PM it's time for En Vivo - live from the Estadio Nacional in Chile. Excited? You should be."
Iron Maiden are currently on the road on The Maiden England World Tour which closely mirrors, in terms of production and content, the original 1988 concert video of the same name, shot on the Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour. This opening section of the World Tour is the band’s most extensive visit to North America for many years and marks the third chapter in the History of Iron Maiden, a journey which began in 2004 with The Early Days DVD and subsequent 2005 Early Days Tour. Part Two followed in 2008 with the Live After Death DVD - the seminal 1984 concert recorded at Los Angeles' Long Beach Arena during the World Slavery Tour - and the band embarking on their groundbreaking Somewhere Back In Time World Tour 2008/9, which saw them play to over two million fans in almost 40 countries.
