Wacken, Germany 2016 [no label, 2CD]

Wacken Open Air. Live at Wacken, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany; August 4, 2016. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

Iron Maiden’s “The Book Of Souls” world tour has been on the road since late February 2016, playing to over 1.5 million fans with 72 shows in 36 counties and six continents. They will play the final show on Thursday, August 4 in Germany at Wacken Open Air festival. ARTE Concert is going to feature the entire iconic performance on livestream. The spectacular gig will get lavish camera attention and can be accessed anywhere in the world - a sensational experience for anyone who cannot get to show.

Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood says: “We decided to finish the tour at Wacken as it is the ideal way to end this magical tour playing to 80,000 core metal fans at this legendary metal festival.

“Wacken has become such as international event with many thousands of fans from many other countries around the world joining and celebrating with the German fans, so it is perfect for the final show of a memorable tour.

“Everywhere we’ve played, the fans have been amazing and the reaction to the new songs and stage show has been phenomenal. The band has loved every minute on stage. So when Wacken and ARTE asked us to consider a livestream of our performance there, we jumped at the chance to give our fans an end of tour gift.

“Streaming this final show live globally allows us to thank the many fans we played to so far, and, for those who couldn’t get to see us this time round, a chance to see just how spectacular the live concert is and what they missed!”
