Iron Maiden’s legendary four night stand at Long Beach, California in 1984 is finally being released as a special double DVD edition in February.
The release will coincide with the start of the band’s Somewhere Back In Time World Tour on which they will recreate many of the aspects of this original and spectacular show.
Disc one contains the recording of the full 90 minute concert, which was originally filmed on 35mm far outstripping the usual live video of the ‘80’s. The disc carries two sound options - the original concert audio specially mixed into 5.1 Surround Sound plus the original stereo sound track. Originally released on video in 1985, the set has been largely unavailable for the past 20 years.
Disc two has Part 2 of the ‘History of Iron Maiden’, continuing on the Iron Maiden story from “The Early Days” DVD, along with rare and unseen bonus footage in the form of Behind The Iron Curtain, Rock In Rio ’85, and ‘Ello Texas, all in all giving a total running time of well over three hours.
Manager Rod Smallwood explained: “The original video has not been readily available for a long time so its good that we finally got around to this. The live CD has long been considered to be one of the seminal metal live albums and has sold millions."
