'The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter' has been recorded over the past two years and features songs from the 2015 album as well as 80s albums 'Killers', 'The Number of the Beast', 'Piece of Mind', 'Powerslave', 'Iron Maiden' and 'Somewhere in Time', and later records 'Brave New World' and 'Fear of the Dark'.
The tour stretched across 39 countries altogether and was witnessed by more than two million fans. A concert film will be released as a digital download or free online stream. The new live album has been produced by Tony Newton and bassist Steve Harris.
'We spent a huge amount of time working on this as I wanted to get it as close to the Maiden live experience as I possibly could and to represent our fans from different parts of the world', said Steve in a statement. 'This meant listening to literally hours upon hours of tapes from every show, to select material and construct a sound that would run consistently across the whole album and capture the excitement of a new country like El Salvador alongside such regular favourites as Donington or Wacken.'
'The Book of Souls' tour was a special one for a number of reasons, as outlined by manager Rod Smallwood. ''The Book Of Souls World Tour' was a huge undertaking, not least for Bruce who started the tour singing in public for the very first time since recovering from throat cancer', he said. 'He also piloted Ed-Force One, upgraded last year from a Boeing 757 to a 747 so we could go further and faster to visit some fantastic cities and fans all round the world.'
'The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter' will be released on November 17th 2017 through Warner Music and BMG.
