Iron Maiden Announce Legacy Of The Beast Double Live Album

Iron Maiden’s Nights Of The Dead, Legacy Of The Beast: Live In Mexico City is coming!

Following Bruce Dickinson’s teaser that, “There’s gonna be some great stuff happening in the near future”, Iron Maiden are kicking things off with the announcement of a brand-new double live album.

Nights Of The Dead, Legacy Of The Beast: Live In Mexico City was recorded across three sold-out shows in September last year, and is due out on November 20 via Parlophone Records. As well as a digital release, the record will come out via digipack 2CD, deluxe hardcase book 2CD, triple black heavyweight vinyl and limited edition heavyweight 180g Mexican Flag triple coloured vinyl – pick up yours from ironmaiden.com.

“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,” explains Maiden founder and bassist Steve Harris.

“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 setlist 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.”

“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 setlist!” adds manager Rod Smallwood. “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.”

The tracklist is as follows:

1. Churchill’s Speech
2. Aces High
3. Where Eagles Dare
4. 2 Minutes To Midnight
5. The Clansman
6. The Trooper
7. Revelations
8. For The Greater Good Of God
9. The Wicker Man
10. Sign Of The Cross
11. Flight Of Icarus
12. Fear Of The Dark
13. Iron Maiden
14. The Number Of The Beast
15. The Evil That Men Do
16. Hallowed Be Thy Name
17. Run To The Hills
