Can't remember a not amazing Maiden's live CD or DVD.
Among unofficial release I recommend the Swedish TV show recorded in Gothenburg in 2005 where they played just songs taken from the first four studio albums.

Yeah I like En Vivo too. Both Rios by Maiden and Rush are great.

The thing I love about both bands is that they really are fan forward bands. Meaning they live to give the fans the best show possible and make albums they beleive in and stand behind.  I find Maidens music to be both emotionally and spiritually uplifting.

I'm not a fan of either Rio release.  The Rush one is completely unwatchable, imo (and the audio is unlistenable).

One thing that's been cool about Maiden's shows for the past 10 years or so is how they've been going back and forth doing a classic tour followed up by mostly new stuff.  Based on that pattern, the next tour will focus on post 2000 stuff and after that we'll get something most likely based on Fear Of The Dark.

Have acquired about 32 IM albums this year, still haven't listened to them all (I'm typically a random shuffle kind of guy, lol).  Pinpointing my favorite songs and albums is a bit complicated, but Powerslave and Piece of Mind head the list, with A Matter of Life and Death, Seventh Son, and Brave New World circulating in this righteous mix. :NP:

A Matter of Life and Death has got to be my next purchase.

I double-checked my IM collection. It's comprised of 44 discs, many of which are live double albums, B-side offerings, etc. 33 albums.

Unholy Shit!  Another Iron Maiden Thread!  Where do I begin???

"Killers' is the greatest Maiden album ever.

"Piece Of Mind" with "Dick"inson is his best ever!

Then again I am a "Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son" addict.  Progressive Metal at it's finest.

I've seen Iron Maiden every tour since "Somewhere In Time."

That's not that impressive.

Wait I didn't see the shit album tours with that other shit singer who replaced Bruce.

Personally have no fuckinng clue why they had to add that third guitar player.  He is useless like tits on a bull.  JMO

You only need Smith and Murray!!!!!!

WTF?????

NUMBER OF THE BEAST!!

"TO HELL WITH THE DEVIL!"

Love,

STRYPER

Adrian quit for a while and when he returned they just didn't kick Janick out.  He is pretty useless though as far as the sound.,.more of a stunt guitarist.

Really liked this band when they first burst on to the scene. They stood out as the best of the NWOBHM that

came marching through the wreckage of "Punk Rock".

In those days, it was the  likes of Paul Di'annio on vocals, Clive Burr on drums, and Daryl Stratton on guitar.

Those first 2 Maiden albums especially, were classics. Great live, I saw them a couple of times supporting Kiss on an early European tour, and later when they became headliners. Always a great show. It began to get a bit dodgy with the never ending lineup changes, but Harris  played  a master stroke when he brought all 3 recent guitarists back into the one lineup.

Must be honest and say that like AC/DC,I have not heard any of their material for decades.

I've said it before and am happy to repeat it...I'd give back the entire Maiden catalog for those first 2 albums!!

And while Dennis Stratton was the second guitarist on the debut, Adrian was in place for Killers. :D-13: :codger:

If you haven't seen this DVD, make it a point to!!  Simply phenomenal footage covering pre-first album through Piece of Mind including a performance and the Ruskin Arms!!

Are there more live versions of Wrathchild and The Trooper released, or ones of Tom Sawyer?

Now that does look interesting. Will seek that out, thanks.

Last time I saw them live was in the mid 80's in Germany. The 3 guitarists were already in place.

Stunning lineup that night. Scorpions, Maiden, Priest, Ozzy, Def  Leppard, Krokus, Twisted Sister Quiet Riot and MSG.

Being Germany, the whole thing was televised. I have 4 hrs of performances from that night on video somewhere.

I bought my brother in law "Piece Of Mind" on virgin vinyl for his birthday.
You should have seen his face.
He looked like a little kid when he opened it up!

EPIC MOMENT!

MAIDEN RULES!!  Except for those two SHIT SANDWICH albums without Bruce!!

Yes! Dortmund Westfahlen Halle. Stages, one at each end of the hall so only 15 minutes between bands .

Correction ,Gers was not playing. :facepalm:  I saw so many guitar players that night I must have imagined  the trio.
