Two CD set. 2012 live release from the British Heavy Metal maestros. En Vivo was taped on April 10, 2011, in front of over 50,000 ecstatic fans at the Estadio Nacional, Santiago, during the Round The World In 66 Days leg of The Final Frontier World Tour, and captures a magnificent performance by the band, ardently embraced by the legendary Latino passion and energy of their Chilean fans. With spectacular stage backdrops, dynamic musicianship and a literally jaw-dropping appearance by Eddie, this live show encapsulates to perfection the heart and soul of Iron Maiden 2011.

I'm going to say it: I don't really need another version of 'Hallowed Be Thy Name', 'Fear of the Dark', 'Iron Maiden', 'Running Free', 'Number of the Beast' etc. We already have plenty of those, and better versions at that. I bought this because I wanted to hear the new songs live quite honestly. The reason I like the previous live album Flight 666 so much was because of the spirit of that tour, they played all the classic 1980's material but the fans went NUTS on that album and everything worked and sounded almost perfect the energy on that album was fantastic and so was the setlist played by an older and more experienced band. En Vivo! is not a bad album by any means but with Maiden now documenting pretty much every tour starting at the reunion with Rock In Rio, it means much less now. I have a feeling the people buying these abundant live releases are fans like me out of loyalty to the band and for the few tracks that aren't available elsewhere. There are six new live songs on En Vivo that aren't anywhere else and they're all from TFF.
For me the highlight of En Vivo! is the long epic 'When The Wild Wind Blows' from their last studio album The Final Frontier. It was my favorite song from that album and it translates very well in a live setting and ends up sounding perhaps even better than the studio version does. The crowd works magic here and Bruce sounds fantastic on this one. 'Coming Home' is another standout and one song I looked forward to hearing live, doesn't disappoint. 'El Dorado' and all the other FF songs are great live versions. There's another live version of 'Dance of Death' from Death on the Road but this one is at least as good and I really enjoy this version. Not to sound like a total nerd but am I the only one who noticed Bruce made a mistake on his introduction of '2 Minutes to Midnight'? He goes 'It's time to go back to 1982 I think'. 1984. Powerslave. The first disc is my favorite as it's the one with the new songs; the second disc is another offering of songs hardcore fans already own (performed well but still) except 'When The Wild Wind Blows'. Don't get me wrong I think Dickinson has always been a phenomenal singer and he sounded great when I got to see him on that tour, he comes through here as sounding great but his voice here is overshadowed by the rest of the band and more so than on past live releases.
Overall En Vivo! is a good live release, the performances are solid the crowd is into it and the songs from The Final Frontier sound great live as this documents but there are so many Maiden live albums that going through another 'Fear of the Dark' is painful for me by now. I bought it for the new songs which I'm glad I did but the rest of the album I already own in some cases several live versions and even though they're still solid versions I don't need them. If you need this album really all comes down to how much you want to hear the songs from the previous studio offering in their live form or how big of a fan or collector you are. 3/5 stars from this fan.
Compared to the rest of Iron Maiden's live catalogue this might be a 3-and-a-half BUT compared to any other output from any other band this is a solid 5!
