Iron Maiden – Rock in Rio

Best Classic Metal Album

The following was originally published in our Review section. 

Review by Keavin Wiggins
The culmination of the “Brave New World Tour” occurred at the Rock In Rio festival where the band performed before 250,000 screaming fans. Like their triumphant Long Beach Arena shows from fifteen years before the band wanted to capture this performance for posterity. Now fans the world over get to share in the “Rock in Rio” experience with the release of the new live recordings of the performance aptly titled “Rock in Rio” with an home video DVD release of the concert to be released later this year. 

“Rock in Rio” isn’t just another “live album”; Iron Maiden fans can get an entire perspective of the band’s history on the road by listening to each subsequent live album. Starting with “Maiden in Japan” (If you can find a copy) to “Live After Death”, “A Real Live One” and now “Rock in Rio” each album gives us a snapshot of the band at that period of time and luckily for fans the track listings are varied. Fans can own all of the Iron Maiden live releases without them being overly redundant. While  “Live in Rio” features some early Maiden classics, the album is really a showcase for where the band is at in this moment in time. If anything “Rock in Rio” is the third essential live album to be included in the Iron Maiden Live discography, the Iron Maiden Live Trilogy if you will.
