Rock In Rio –	Commentary

This is the visual version of the Rock In Rio live album and the commentary of the album also applies to the video. Visually, this is quite simply a Maiden concert: full of energy and stage effects. The only complaint I might have concerning this visual feast is that the images change a bit too fast and I would have liked to see the cameras stay a bit longer on each musician instead of those split-second changes of angles.

The second disc shows us a more personal aspect of the musicians. It is a surprise to no Maiden fan to know about Bruce's passion for fencing or Steve's for football, but many will discover the quieter sides of the other four – who would have thought that Adrian was a keen angler? The "Day In The Life" is also an interesting documentary on what it's like to be in such a massive international rock band, and Ross Halfin's photographs are also pretty nice.

The "Special Features" disc also contains some hidden bonus. Try moving the cursor over the menu screens and you will discover an Eddie smiley face appearing on the screen. Just click on it, and you'll discover a little word from Kevin Shirley, as well as a surprising couple of love-monkeys! Other hidden features include Bruce pratting around in his hotel room, Nicko discussing a river and a golf game, Dave and Ross discussing drinks, Adrian, Dave and Steve having fun with tennis rackets and the ups and downs of being in Iron Maiden. The interest of all this is pretty limited though.

All in all a really nice DVD that is recommended to all Iron Maiden fans.

Here is what the promotional writing says at the back of the DVD box:

Rock in Rio Festival 2001 – Iron Maiden headlines one of the biggest shows on earth to a massive sell out of 250,000 crowd and a global TV Audience of millions. The explosive two hour set, shot using 18 cameras and edited by Steve Harris is Maiden at its best, performing their biggest show ever on the final date of their Brave New World Tour. This double DVD captures the band's energy and massive Stage Production with both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Full Rate DTS Surround tracks to take you to the front row. In depth personal interviews with each band member and a documentary showing "A Day In The Life" of what it's like to be a part of Iron Maiden makes this, their first ever DVD release, the best record to date of one of the world's premier rock bands.
