(Toronto, ON – 12 February 2013) – Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company is proud to announce the highly anticipated release of the Double Disc DVD MAIDEN ENGLAND ‘88 on 25 March. Now available for the very first time on DVD, this live show was filmed across two sold-out nights at Birmingham N.E.C Arena, UK in November 1988 during the band’s “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son World Tour”.   Disc one contains the concert which has been specially upgraded and extended from the existing 1989 longform VHS release and now includes three previously unreleased encores: Running Free, Run To The Hills and Sanctuary. The DVD also includes a brand new 5.1 audio surround mix by Maiden’s current producer Kevin Shirley. The concert was meticulously directed and edited by bass player and founder member Steve Harris, so as to capture the performance from a fans-eye view of the stage, focusing fully on the music, the elaborate stage production and the lighting.   Disc two is an extensive bonus disc featuring an exclusive documentary on the history of Iron Maiden. This 40-minute film comprises recent interviews with the five band members and manager, Rod Smallwood. Picking up the story in the aftermath of the ‘84/85 World Slavery tour, this interesting and insightful documentary sees the band speak candidly about their memories of an exciting and occasionally turbulent period from which would emerge the albums Somewhere In Time and Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son.   Manager Rod Smallwood comments “We’ve been busy upgrading this concert footage for a long time, with our in-house Film Producer and Director Andy Matthews working tirelessly to weave his magic yet again! The 1989 VHS video has been largely unavailable for many years and we know how eagerly our fans have been awaiting the new version so we wanted to give it the best possible treatment. The current Maiden England World Tour which continues later this year revisits much of the set list and production from the initial 1989 VHS release so it will be interesting to compare just how much has changed in terms of our 2013 live show production, especially with all the advances in modern technology and the improvements we’ve been able to make to the set”.   The MAIDEN ENGLAND ‘88 concert soundtrack will be available on several formats including a 2 CD set, Limited Edition double vinyl picture disc, and Digital Download formats. The double disc offers a total of 5 tracks previously unavailable on CD making this the first full and complete audio recording release of this historic tour.   DISC ONE – MAIDEN ENGLAND ’88 Set List: Moonchild The Evil That Men Do The Prisoner Still Life Die With Your Boots On Infinite Dreams Killers Can I Play With Madness Heaven Can Wait Wasted Years The Clairvoyant Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son The Number Of The Beast Hallowed Be Thy Name Iron Maiden Run To The Hills* Running Free* Sanctuary*   *previously unreleased.   DISC TWO – THE HISTORY OF IRON MAIDEN PART 3   The History Of Iron Maiden - Part 3 12 Wasted Years Wasted Years promo video Stranger In A Strange Land promo video Can I Play With Madness promo video The Evil That Men Do promo video The Clairvoyant promo video
