Product Description

A souvenir from the 2001 Rock in Rio festival, this set proves that Iron Maiden not only are among the elite heavy-metal purveyors of all time but can still shred onstage with the best of them. The British sextet holds its audience of a quarter-million in thrall for two hours, opening with a pummeling "Wicker Man" and wending its way through nearly three decades of hard-rocking tales of the mythic and supernatural: "The Mercenary," "The Trooper," "The Evil That Men Do," "The Number of the Beast," and ending with the ubiquitous "Run for the Hills." Concert footage was edited by bassist Steve Harris; obviously attuned to his band's rhythms, he ensures the visuals are as in-your-face as the music. A second disc spends 50 minutes showing band members doing non-rock & roll things offstage, like vocalist Bruce Dickinson's predilection for fencing and flying planes. A short "Day in the Life" featurette, brief group interviews, and the band's photographer Ross Halfin's photo diary round out the bonus disc. --Kevin Filipski

The worst thing that could happen for Iron Maiden was when its founder, its boss, the marvellous bass player and songwriter called Steve Harris decided to edit this DVD. I don't understand it.
Theoretically trying to "capture" the famous Maiden energy and vibe on stage, he opted for using a ultra-fast edition that will make your head spin, without paying any attention for who is soloing at the moment, if Nicko is at the middle of a great drums flourish, etc. All of the takes last, in their majority, less than one second and a half. The result was that you simply have no pleasure watching this MTV-styled DVD, thanks to its terrible edition.
Well, that's my opinion. Of course, the "UP THE IRONS" guys will love anything this deservedly great band release.

I fondly recall getting "Live After Death" double-live album back in the 80's and playing the heck out of it, in awe of what that live show must've been like. In much the same way, even if you have the occasional gripe here or there about this DVD, it's the whole experience: they're playing in front of some 250,00 raving lunatic Brazillian fans who sometimes sing it out nearly as loud as Bruce... I mean - egads, you GOTTA have it... I'm surprised it took ME this long to get it.
Now, now... despite being a "must have", it could have been better still... here's how: better editing: for most of the concert you just get a few seconds of this guy, a few seconds of another guy, a few seconds of the next guy after that, etc... really nothing much to it... it would be better to simply stick to what's important... while on guitar solo's, show the guy playing, in some detail... when Bruce is singing, show him... during the good drum crashes, gives us a shot of Nicko, etc... during long chug-chugging breaks, THAT is where you take the time to show the theatrics... and given that Maiden has TONS of chug-chugging intros and outros and bridges and what-not, you still have TONS of room for that stuff... so... this is a rather large gripe. (Aside: note for the most part, they DO adhere to what I suggest... it's just that they DO stray a bit to much... it gets to be a bit more segmented than I'd prefer).
Bonus disc... the personal stuff was... not much more interesting than the comments you can find on; don't get me wrong - I view this disc as a "free bonus", so anything goes, right... but still - there could've been at least a little more to it. The section on Bruce was cool... most others were rather dull...

This show just goes off!!!!
And opening with "The Wicker Man" rocks!!! Such a good song, my band's learning it now to cover it!!!
There's a lot of "Brave New World" tracks on here, and although it's cool when bands play more oldschool stuff, I like these songs! I haven't heard the whole album, just the live ones but it sounds like it must be a good one.
The DTS mix is unreal!! It's so loud and clear, I haven't even tried the Dolby 5.1 mix!! "Sign of the Cross" makes my sub want to explode so that's cool hahaha
Watching Bruce use the stage is really good to see, he's a champ!! I hear he's a little uptight in person but I don't give a damn!!! Nicko's always cool to watch, even though the audiance must have barely seen him behind his huge cage of percussion! It's funny when he starts dancing behind the kit on "The Clansman."
Highlight songs to me are probably: The Wicker Man, The Trooper, Sign of the Cross, Dream of Mirrors, good ol' Hallowed, and I don't know...the rest of the show!
The only thing I didn't like about this DVD was the damn price!! Everywhere I see it it's about $AUS 50 - 60!! Too much man, too much. But damn it those Maiden boys are good!! I wish they'd bring their damn "Dance of Death" tour down under!! When the hell were they last here??? Oh well, I'll just have to keep watching "Rock In Rio" until they do!

Ok so the camera angles are fast but this is IRON MAIDEN it creates a quick atmosphere fitted nicely with steve harris bass lines. All i can say is Janick Gers is one of the best rock guitarists still around!! here r some of the gr8 songs on this on this DVd:
THE WICKER MAN: the best intro you will EVER hear, Bruces vocals shine!
GHOST OF THE NAVIGATOR: The best song here
2 MINS TO MIDNIGHT: Gr8 riff from Gers,good crowd participation
THE CLANSMAN: Nice solos from Murray and Gers
EVIL THAT MEN DO: an amazing intro, check out Gers battle with mascot Eddie
HALLOWED BE THY NAME: an all round great participation from the whole band and the crowd of 250 000
NUMBER OF THE BEAST: chuckle as a rather exited brazilian fan runs on stage and taps Harris on the shoulder, only to be quickly removed :)
RUN TO THE HILLS: an obligatory closer to the concert the most well remembered song here.
Well iv never heard a better live album and this shines!! gr8 vocals, gr8 crowd, gr8 band, and EDDIE!! what more could u want???

Before I say anything about the live DVD version of Iron Maiden's ROCK IN RIO, I must say this: "Steve Harris, you're a unique bass player, good songwriter, and metal legend - please stay out of the editing room, thank you!!" More on that later. After being blown away by the double-CD version of ROCK IN RIO, I was really expecting a lot out of the filmed concert. The band's performance is tight and singer Bruce Dickinson has never sounded better than he does here. So how come all that energy comes through in the CD but not on the DVD? Simple: there's too much going on and there's so little time to show it all.
For one thing, the sound is absolutely atrocious compared to the CD version. On the CD, the production was raw but very listenable and every vocal and instrument could be heard well, including the crowd. On the DVD, the sound is cranked up way past 11 and becomes hugely unlistenable. I couldn't really tell what was going on; it was just one big sonic whirlwind of noise and nothing else. As I mentioned in the intro, bass player and band leader Steve Harris did the editing, and you can clearly tell this guy didn't go to film school. The editing is very fast, very choppy, very flawed, and extremely headache-inducing. I swear, I thought I was gonna have a seizure midway through the concert! And whenever someone solos, whether it be Adrian, Janick, or Dave, the editing doesn't pause long enough to see either them work their magic on the fretboards. Very disappointing. Not since the movie ARMAGEDDON have I seen so many annoying 2-second cuts.
The DVD isn't entirely all bad.
