Third re-release of the first official live album by the legendary British Heavy Metal band.
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 double-disc live set "Live After Death" was issued in 1985. Disc one is comprised of selections from a four-night stand at L.A.'s Long Beach Arena, with disc two comprised of performances from London's Hammersmith Odeon.
The album is essentially a best-of of sorts, since most of their singles released up to this point are featured in all of their high-decibel glory, making it a near-complete overview.
"Live After Death" is easily one of Heavy Metal's best live albums!!
