Iron Maiden made a movie

Bruce gets the flag out

Try saying that headline three times very fast. Anyway, Iron Maiden have announced today that they’re to release a feature-length documentary chronicling the first leg of last year’s Somewhere Back In Time World Tour, to be released under the title of ‘Iron Maiden: Flight 666’.

It’s focus on the February/March part of the tour means unfortunately it won’t feature Maiden’s trumphant homecoming gig at Twickenham. Boo. But then if your world tour does involve flying 12 tonnes of gear to 13 countries to play in 23 arena shows, well, I guess you can’t expect to cover everything. The documentary is due in selected cinemas from 21 April 2009.
