The legendary Iron Maiden are set to add another killer live album to their catalogue, with the announcement of Nights of the Dead: Legacy Of The Beast - Live In Mexico City arriving on November 20!
This double live album was recorded over the course of their three Mexico City performances in September 2019 as part of their widely-acclaimed Legacy Of The Beast world tour, and they've shared the performance of 'Aces High', which you can listen to below:
Bassist Steve Harris says of the new release:
“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. 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 set list 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.”
There are a ton of amazing Nights of the Dead bundles available right here on the Maniacs Store, including a special 3LP Ultimate Edition that comes with an insane amount of goodies - scroll on to have a look!
Iron Maiden were scheduled to complete their Australian and New Zealand legs of their Legacy Of The Beast tour with Killswitch Engage back in May, but was ultimately cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
