Iron Maiden: Flight 666 is a full length documentary film and follows on from Iron Maiden being crowned Best British Live Act at the Brit Awards 2009. The film was shot as the band embarked on the first leg of their momentous Somewhere Back In Time World Tour in February and March of 2008, considered to be the most ambitious and adventurous tour in rock history. The film is a revealing portrait of one of the world’s most successful rock bands and an inspirational and often humorous account of the chaotic world of a band on tour around the stadiums of the world.
The film has recently won the “24 BEATS PER SECOND” award for best music documentary at the prestigious SXSW Film & Music Festival in Austin, Texas.
