VIDEO: Iron Maiden play final show of Maiden England world tour

Iron Maiden played the final show of their Maiden England world tour with a headlining set at Sonisphere UK on Saturday, and fan-filmed video from the event is available.

The 16-song set opened with “Moonchild” from 1998’s “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son”, and focused largely on their 1980s period.

The Maiden England stage show closely mirrored, in terms of production and content, the original 1988 concert video of the same name – reissued on DVD last – originally shot on the “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour.”

The band played 100 shows to more than 2 million fans in 32 countries over the course of the 2-year tour, which began in June 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Maiden England tour saw the group play a record-breaking 5th headline concert at Donington Park as part of the 2013 Download Festival, as well as their third performance at the Rock in Rio festival in Brazil, and their first show in Paraguay.
