No Prayer for the Dying

For their first concert tour with Janick Gers on guitar, and following the more elaborate production of their 1980s shows, the band decided to return to using a less extensive stage set, featuring fewer props and other effects. Apart from two B-sides on their 1992 single, "From Here to Eternity", no live recordings from this tour were released.

Fear of the Dark

In support of 1992's Fear of the Dark, the band made a return headline appearance at the Monsters of Rock festival at Donington Park, featuring a guest appearance by Adrian Smith during the encores, which was later released in 1993 in audio and video formats. In addition, A Real Live One and some of A Real Dead One (both released in 1993) were recorded at various venues across Europe. Having last performed there at the Rock in Rio festival in 1984, Iron Maiden returned to South America, although the Chilean show was cancelled following complaints from the Catholic Church, who accused the band of being Satanists.

This would be the band's last tour with Bruce Dickinson on vocals before he returned to the band in 1999, with his farewell show, featuring horror magician Simon Drake, taking place at Pinewood Studios and released on video as Raising Hell (1994). Named after the live album, A Real Live One, most of its follow-up, A Real Dead One, was recorded at various venues.

The X Factor

For their first shows with Blaze Bayley on vocals, the band decided to start the tour with their first ever performances in Africa and the Middle East. As Iron Maiden's popularity had diminished, they moved into smaller venues in Europe and North America. This was not the case in South America where they headlined the Monsters Of Rock festival at Estádio do Pacaembu in São Paulo, Brazil before an audience of approximately 55,000. Due to the tour's heavy schedule, Bayley suffered from vocal issues which meant that several shows in the U.S. had to be cancelled.

Virtual XI

For their world tour in support of 1998's Virtual XI, the band decided to make their first visits to Turkey and Malta, as well as return to a more elaborate production reminiscent of their 1980s stage shows. As with their previous tour, several dates had to be cancelled as Blaze Bayley suffered from vocal issues, which ultimately brought about his departure from the group.

Ed Hunter

Following the return of Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith in January, Iron Maiden decided to take a short tour in 1999 with their new six-piece line-up before they recorded their next studio album, 2000's Brave New World. Tying in with the band's new video game and greatest hits collection, Ed Hunter (1999), this was the only time that the band's set-list was compiled from the results of an internet poll. Unfortunately, due to his father's funeral, Smith was absent from three concerts.
