The seventh DVD by the legendary British Heavy Metal band.
This double DVD set contains re-release of the legendary "Live After Death" VHS on DVD as well as bonus disc with “The History of Iron Maiden Part 2”.
Iron Maiden's World Slavery Tour was one of the longest and most extensive tours ever undertaken by a Rock band.
Lasting from August 9, 1984, to July 5, 1985, and visiting such countries as Poland, Austria, Hungry, Yugoslavia, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Scotland, England, Germany, Sweden, Canada, Japan and the U.S., the show included a mammoth setup that replicated the intricate ancient Egyptian scenery of the "Powerslave" album cover.
As a "thank you" to the hundreds of thousands of fans who packed arenas the world over, the 2LP Live set and VHS "Live After Death" was issued in 1985.
The VHS was certified Platinum in 1987 by the RIAA.
The DVD was certified Platinum in 2008 again by the RIAA, having sold 100,000 units. The new release had two mixes of the audio: Martin Birch's version which serves as the original concert audio, and a brand new 5.1 Stereo mix by Kevin Shirley. In addition to the complete concert, the DVD features Part 2 of "The History of Iron Maiden" DVD series, which began with 2004's "The Early Days", documenting the recording of the "Powerslave" album and the following tour.
