Iron Maiden to release on-tour documentary on DVD

'Iron Maiden: Flight 666' will be released in May

Iron Maiden are set to release their tour documentary, ‘Iron Maiden: Flight 666’, on Blu-Ray and DVD on May 25.

The film documents the band during last year’s ‘Somewhere Back In Time’ world tour, and was directed by Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen. The second disc in the set features live concert footage taken at 16 different gigs on the tour.

A double-CD soundtrack album will accompany the release, while double-vinyl picture discs will also be issued on the day of release.

The film features footage from the band’s customised Boeing 757 – the aeroplane they used to tour the world, piloted by singer Bruce Dickinson.

‘Flight 666’ is set to be screened in cinemas worldwide on April 21.
