Best Iron Maiden Live Albums

The Top Ten

1 Live After Death Live After Death

The classics when they were still fresh, maybe my all-time favourite album. 'Maiden England' is a great companion too, covering the next two albums and a few older cuts not found on here, with surprisingly little overlap. After that, the live albums start to get repetitive.

This live album is perfect, opens up with Churchill's speech and continues into Aces high. It plays hits from Iron Maiden, Number of the beast, piece of mind, and Powerslave, some of the greatest Maiden albums ever. I would highly recommend this to any Maiden fans out there!

This is by far one of the greatest live albums ever, not just Maiden (my second is live in Rio). If you are going to own one Maiden album this is it. And if you don't proceed to buy the rest of their collection I'd be very surprised. Up the IRONS

This isn't just their best live album but it is best album overall, better than their studio albums.

3 Flight 666 - The Original Soundtrack Flight 666 - The Original Soundtrack

Flight 666 is great "best of 80's" live compilation album which reintroduces classics like Powerslave, Rime of the Ancient mariner and Revelations which are superior to their studio or LAD counterparts. Best Maiden live album yet.

4 Maiden England

The Classic recording from the 7th tour of a 7th tour, regarded as the best Iron Maiden live performances ever - the last moments of the classic lineup and the Golden Age of Iron Maiden - one must own this:

1. Moonchild
2. The Evil That Men Do
3. The Prisoner
4. Still Life
5. Die WIth Your Boots On
6. Infinite Dreams
7. Killers
8. Can I Play With Madness
9. Heaven Can Wait
10. Wasted Years
11. The Clairvoyant
12. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
13. The Number Of The Beast
14. Hallowed Be Thy Name
15. Iron Maiden

I choose this one because of the songlist.. Killers, the prisonner, still life, wasted years seventh son... It seems that for once, they played the songs that the fans like (trading Heaven can wait that we all hate for aces high would have given almost a perfect set list (and of course adding the trooper instead of die with your boots on.

I love how the live version of all final frontier songs are very cool

The most spectacular and theatrical show which Iron Maiden has ever done - masks and reapers in Dance of Death, the war theme in Paschendale and many other special effects in other songs make this album great.

7 Beast Over Hammersmith Beast Over Hammersmith

This album has the best vocal by Bruce far superior than "Live After Death"

This live is not in the top 3 because it's just an unknown cd for a lot of "fans". live after death is an excellent live recording with overdubs, Beast over Hammersmith is just an excellent live recording.

This live album from legendary Iron Maiden is ten million times better than overrated Live After Death, and not just becoase the great vocals... Just listen whole sound.. this is real heavy metal thax to RIP Clive Burr, Nicko is maybe technical skill master, but Clive was center of old Maiden spirit. Anyway love Maiden even now!
