Best Iron Maiden Live Albums

The Top Ten
1 Live After Death

Of all the recorded tracks from this release, not one lets up. Each and every song presented here might not contain the band's best performances ever, but they're still pretty great. Combining fine performances with their all-time energetic peak, you just can't go wrong here. Live After Death might just be Iron Maiden's definitive live album. I would even go as far as to say that it is possibly the greatest live album of all time. Also, this rendition of their title song might just be the band's all-time greatest track.

2 Rock In Rio

Fear of the Dark, Ghost of the Navigator, Blood Brothers Sign of the Cross, Clansman are played the best on this album and are the highlights and are played the best. There's also Wrathchild, Number of the Beast, Run to the Hills, Trooper and 2 Minutes to Midnight here to up the ante and to whet early iron maiden fans's appetites.

Rock In Rio - recorded in front of 250,000 Iron Maiden fans in Rio de Janeiro in 2001. The loudest crowd ever and no one can deny the fact that FEAR OF THE DARK is KILLER in this album - if you don't believe, ask those 20,000,000 viewers on YouTube.

4 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.

5 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:

3. The Prisoner
4. Still Life
5. Die WIth Your Boots On
6. Infinite Dreams
7. Killers
8. Can I Play With Madness

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.

6 Death On the Road

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

Brilliant, arguably one of the best Maiden live appearances ever. Can it ever get more ass-kicking than the opening track Murders in the Rue Morgue? Had this one been released back in the eighties, Live after Death would probably not be considered one of the very best live albums ever recorded.

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!
