Live After Death (video)

Live After Death is the video compendium to the double-live Iron Maiden album of the same name. Released in VHS/Beta/LaserDisc/VHD/Hi-8 and DVD.

The video captures Iron Maiden in concert, recorded over a sold-out four-night stand at Long Beach Arena on the second night, 15 March 1985, during their World Slavery Tour. The video also contains footage from a completely different night from the tour that was originally aired as a special on MTV. The VHS was certified Platinum in 1987 by the RIAA.

Iron Maiden released it on DVD on 4 February 2008, which coincided with the start of the band's Somewhere Back In Time World Tour. On 11 March 2008 it was certified Platinum again by the RIAA, having sold 100,000 units. The new release had two mixes of the audio: Martin Birch's version which serves as the original concert audio, and a brand new 5.1 Stereo mix by Kevin Shirley. In addition to the complete concert, the DVD features Part 2 of "The History of Iron Maiden" DVD series, which began with 2004's The Early Days, documenting the recording of the Powerslave album and the following tour.

Live After Death is distributed in the U.S. by Universal Music Group/Sony BMG Music Entertainment and in the rest of the world by EMI. In the U.S it was labelled with the Parental Advisory sticker due to profanity in the concert and "The History of Iron Maiden" documentary.
