New Iron Maiden Live Album2020-10-02 by Fernando Alves CONTRIBUTOR | 18 Comments
|Legendary heavy metal band Iron Maiden will be releasing a new live album, Dead, Legacy of the Beast: Live in Mexico City, on November 20th via Parlophone Records (BMG in the USA). The album was recorded during the band’s three sold out arena shows there in September 2019 and is a celebration of their Legacy Of The Beast World Tour which began in 2018 and will finish next Summer in Europe.|
Steve Harris comments:
"When the final leg of our 2020 Legacy tour this summer had to be cancelled due to the COVID pandemic, the whole band was very disappointed and deflated and we know our fans felt the same. We’d been really looking forward to bringing the show to even more countries and although we’ve been able to reschedule most of our European own-shows for 2021, we thought we’d take a listen to the recordings from the tour so far and see if we could create a definitive live album souvenir that everyone, everywhere could enjoy. I’m very pleased with the results, especially as this set list includes songs which have never made it to a live CD before, such as For The Greater Good Of God, and other older songs like Where Eagles Dare, Flight Of Icarus, The Clansman and Sign Of The Cross which haven’t been included in our live set releases for many years.
We’ve never released a live album from Mexico before and I think this recording does justice to the passion and joy of our Mexican fans who always give us such a fantastic welcome whenever we play there."
Rod Smallwood adds:
“All the shows on the tour so far have been amazing and our fans have loved the whole Legacy extravaganza with the elaborately themed stages, props and drapes, not to mention the killer set-list! When our 2020 tour got cancelled, putting together a live album seemed the obvious thing to do and I think Steve, along with co-producer Tony Newton, has perfectly captured the essence of the 70,000-strong crowd across these three nights in Mexico City. The album serves both as a celebration of this tour, which almost two million fans have already seen, and as a taster for, hopefully, next year’s final run for anyone who hasn’t yet experienced the show.”

Churchill’s Speech is still the best live intro ever.
Digging: Asphyx - Necroceros
I'll take it, I'll take whatever from them!
Bummer that they don't include anything from Somewhere in Time though.
And btw they are also recording a new album too!
Digging: Typhoon (USA-OR) - Sympathetic Magic
Yeah, the lads have already been together in the studio.
I have always felt my life was missing a 13th live album from the Maiden.
Will suck as bad as most their stuff over the last few years
Please do whatever you can to see Iron Maiden live before they all die. It's a life changing experience
Digging: Bladee x ECCO2K - Remote Utopias
its true ^^ such a high energy, euphoric expierence
Look I’m the biggest maiden apologist there is but HQ YouTube sets have made the live album utterly obsolete, especially when every track bar one on here has been on a previous live album
Not too familiar with their live recordings, i tend to steer away normally.
^yeah, have never really enjoyed a live album period
I need to see them live so badly
Love my Maiden, but will definitely pass on this
I dunno why so many people are being negative about this album. I mean, they're 60 years old and sound better than a band ten years younger than them (Metallica). I doubt most of these people have even listened to the pre-released recording of "Aces High", and I doubt that they realize the energy that Maiden has always brought and always will bring. Sheesh.
You're digging the album and it's not even out yet lol
if you've heard one live maiden album you've heard them all
Yet nothing comes close to Live After Death.
I now realize how valuable the blurays are with my Rush collection, not being able to see them live anymore
Their date at Bellsonic in Belfast was cancelled outright this year, which sucked. But a new live album and news of a new studio album in the works? I'll take it!
symbolicintime you NEED to see them live, its crazy how different/better there shows are than like every other band ever lol. Mind blowing stuff
