Coming to a Cinema near you: Iron Maiden – Flight 666

Iron Maiden (side)Sometimes here at TGTF we like to post something a bit different. So when we got an email telling us all about a great new docu-film about Iron Maiden, we felt it was only right to share the news so all the Maiden fans can get their fix.

Flight 666 was shot as the band embarked on the first leg of their momentous Somewhere Back In Time World Tour in February and March of last year, and sees them circumnavigating the globe in just 45 days. The band flew in a specially customised Boeing 757 airliner, piloted by lead singer Bruce Dickinson, with the entire tour crew and 12 tons of music and stage equipment on board, to 23 sold-out stadium and arena shows in Asia, Australia and North, Central and South America.

Like many new documentary films, Flight 666 is being shown in digital, instead of traditional 35mm analogue film. The film’s 5.1 surround sound was mixed by the band’s producer Kevin “Caveman” Shirley, so it should sound pretty impressive.

I’m not a huge fan of Iron Maiden myself, however you’ve got to give it to them – they know how to put on a show, and are some of the best at what they do. They certainly blow the likes of Coldplay out of the water!

So, is this sounding interesting to you? Well, to celebrate their Best British Live Act at the Brit Awards 2009, Flight 666 will be shown on over 400 screens in 34 countries for one day only – Maiden Day – on 21st April. Tickets are on sale now from the websites of the cinemas.

Do you think this is going to be an amazing film? Have you seen their previous tour films? Or is this just going to be Spinal Tap gone new millenium? Let us know in the comments below. For a full list of cinemas showing the film, check out the list after the jump.
