Watch Iron Maiden headline Rock In Rio 2022

Iron Maiden headlined the opening night of the 2022 edition of Rock In Rio on September 2, and pro-shot video of their full performance is available online.

The band’s 2-hour, 15-song set at Parque Olímpico in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil opened with three songs from their latest release, “Senjutsu”, including tracks from nine different albums and closed with the 1984 “Powerslave” classic, “Aces High.”

As part of Iron Maiden’s Legacy Of The Beast Tour, the group topped a mainstage bill that included sets by Dream Theater, Gojira, and Sepultura with the Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira (Brazilian Symphony Orchestra).

The band launched a North American tour in Mexico City on September 7, and will next be seen performing in El Paso, TX on September 11.

Iron Maiden released “Senjutsu” last fall; the group recorded the project in France in 2019 with producer Kevin Shirley; get your copy at Amazon here.
