Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

4.0 out of 5 stars A Spectacle To Be Sure Aug. 3 2013
By ClwydJ
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is not without it's flaws, the worst being the packaging. The cheap foam inserts holding the discs in place both came off during shipping resulting in heavy scuffing on both discs.Cheap,cheap,cheap! Luckily my player was able to view them with only a couple of brief hiccups. The audio/video quality is good, but not great. I've heard better audio mixes & watching 4:3 aspect ratio nowadays makes the video seem dated(shouldn't we have had 16:9 seeing as this show is 2001?). Of course the editing could be slowed down a lot, but it's not the worst I've seen.And the bonus disc is nothing to get excited about.
The 4 stars are earned by my favorite Maiden line-up, playing at their best, in front of a massive ,loving crowd. It's an event well worth watching.

2.0 out of 5 stars The worst edition I have ever seen!! Nov. 25 2003
By Kael
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must have for Maiden fans, but.... May 18 2004
Format:DVD
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 ironmaiden.com; 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...

1.0 out of 5 stars Get out the tapes and do it over June 21 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Rock in Rio had all the ingredients to be a classic concert DVD, perhaps one of the best ever. There was 250,0000 loyal fans ready to sing along with every note. There was a behemoth stage and light show, a fantastic set list, and of course probably the most refined, polished and exciting hard rock/heavy metal band of all time. But this DVD fails when you thought failure was impossible. While the music is utterly fantastic, the editing, which apparently was done by band founder and bassist Steve Harris, destroyed the whole effort. No camera shot appears on screen for more than what seems to be 1/100th of a second. It is far easier to focus on the white lines on the highway while doing 120 MPH than it is to focus on what's happening during this concert. At first it leaves you wishing you could see more of a Janick Gers or Dave Murray solo; it then gets frustrating because it won't stop switching; and finally your eyes get so tired of trying to see something that you get a headache.
It is even more frustrating because while the DVD is playing, you know that something great is going on here but you just cannot enjoy it. The DVD is pretty much unwatchable. I agonized through it and will never watch it again. There is no doubt that Iron Maiden ought to pull out the tapes again and re-edit this concert. All the ingredients are there for a classic DVD to enjoy over and over again. Do it over and call it Rock In Rio Revised. If not, Rock in Rio will stand forever as a lost opportunity.

5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S IRON F&*%KIN MAIDEN!!!! Oct. 9 2008
Format:DVD
What could possibly go wrong? Iron Maiden -- reborn and reignited -- and 100,000 scream Brazilian fans turn in a raging concert. Some have told me the camera shot changes only prove the camera man has ADD. I say, "IT'S IRON F&^%KIN MAIDEN!! Quit complaining, girlee man. It's all here...Run to the Hills...The Number of the Beast...The Trooper...The Clansman...The Wickerman...The Evil That Men Do...there isn't a single bad song in the set. And the highly entertaining stage antics of the band make this a worthy addition to the library. AND THERE'S A GIANT EDDIE!!!!So quit complaining...or watch Pink Floyd at Earl's Court...Zzzzzzz....
