Iron Maiden - To Release New Live Album, Share Clip


Warner Music will release Iron Maiden's The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter on November 17th worldwide (through BMG in the USA). This live recording comprises 15 songs captured during "The Book Of Souls World Tour", which covered 39 countries across six continents during 2016 and 2017, and was seen by over two million fans. There will also be a free live streaming premiere of the concert film. For now, you can watch the legendary band perform "Speed Of Light" in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter will be released physically in CD, deluxe CD and vinyl audio formats, with the concert film available to stream free online or as a digital download.

Produced by Tony Newton and Iron Maiden founder member and bass player Steve Harris, the album is based on this year's set list and is a faithful record of the epic show, including six songs from The Book Of Souls, the band's most recent studio album, along with many other classics and fan favourites.





Steve comments: "We spent a huge amount of time working on this as I wanted to get it as close to the Maiden live experience as I possibly could and to represent our fans from different parts of the world. This meant listening to literally hours upon hours of tapes from every show, to select material and construct a sound that would run consistently across the whole album and capture the excitement of a new country like El Salvador alongside such regular favourites as Donington or Wacken."

Maiden manager Rod Smallwood adds: "'The Book Of Souls World Tour' was a huge undertaking, not least for Bruce who started the tour singing in public for the very first time since recovering from throat cancer. He also piloted Ed Force One, upgraded last year from a Boeing 757 to a 747 so we could go further and faster to visit some fantastic cities and fans all round the world. This year continued that excitement bringing us our most successful North American and UK tours ever. It was a very special tour in a great many ways so we felt we wanted to document it for both ourselves and for our fans. Steve has done an incredible job putting together this set from cities around the world and we've made sure the deluxe CD will be available in a matching book format to The Book Of Souls release.

"On top of all that the release will be celebrated by an event that is a Maiden first: a free live streaming premiere of the concert film, as a thank you to our loyal fans around the world. We hope that the global Maiden community will all enjoy coming together to watch this special event online. Many of you will be in it as there is footage from a whole host of the places we played on this momentous tour. "

More details on how to take part in this one-off event will be published shortly.

    I guess I ought to say "just wait for it" but the point I was implying is releasing a set of live recordings ever 3-4 years.

    Yeah, but this is quite normal - every successful metal band once becomes a money machine...at least from record companies' point of view

    According to MS database they are ahead of Maiden with 2 Although given, some Metallica's is totally justified given we don't have the original lineup anymore, lacking energy and speed etc. With Maiden and Manowar I'm afraid they are just getting old, that's all, plus the new songs.
