There’s something about Latin American metal audiences that makes for great live vids. For ‘En Vivo!’, Maiden had two shows on their 'The Final Frontier World Tour' filmed (Buenos Aires and Santiago) but the Chilean capital won out in the final cut. Cue massive stadium filled to the gunnels with an energized crowd and Maiden on full throttle! The whole spectacle was captured in HD by what must have been an army of cameramen, and edited to perfection. To convey the energy and excitement of what was a great gig, the movie constantly switches between full-screen/split screen shots of the band in full flow, intercut with crowd shots - a difficult job brilliantly done. Highlights are too many to mention, but the 'Behind The Beast' feature gives a fascinating insight into the mechanics of running a metal monster as big as Iron Maiden!
