Rock In Rio is a live album by British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, released in March 2002 by EMI Records.

When the most famous Heavy metal band on Earth decided to record a live album for their stage entrance in the new millennium, fans were already interested in the product. But when it's also the first live album after the return of both Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith, the excitement became immense. Rio is a great place to record a live album, an album recorded in front of a Brazilian audience is usually a sign of a great album already.

Featuring their three talented guitarists, Dave Murray, Janick Gers and Adrian Smith, the result is simple harmony, the purest melting pot of talent and three different layers of heaviness transcend the whole set list. Bruce wouldn't be Bruce without he's interaction with the fans along the concert ["Scream for me Brazil!"], and he even introduces the songs by a few words, as usual. Now, Bruce has been a mentor for a lot of singers throughout the years but he is still the master of the discipline. Steve Harris handles the event perfectly as always and Nicko McBrain is at the top of his drumming abilities. 

The sound is excellent, the audience is really present, Bruce is all over the place and every instrument has a right share of the overall sound. The production duo Kevin Shirley / Steve Harris create miracles.

As for the songs, most of the set list is from Brave New World [it was the "Brave New Tour" after all] and the staples that are “2 Minutes To Midnight”, “Fear Of The Dark”, “The Number Of The Beast”, “Hallowed Be Thy Name” and others. To complete this concert, Iron Maiden played some surprises such as “Wrathchild”, “The Clansman” [the first time recorded with Bruce on vocals] and “Sign Of The Cross”. With Maiden, every track is history so no need to pick any highlights, it would be a waste if time. You're going to listen to the whole damn thing anyway.

Iron Maiden are an amazing band and therefore every record they release is a piece of history but most of all a piece of incredible music. Rock In Rio is another one of these and is also a testimony of the Maiden dream team. It's an undeniable proof that the band is here to stay. But even more important, when you evoke Iron Maiden on stage, you have to remember that every song is mesmerising. And the chills that run through your spine during “Fear Of The Dark” or “Hallowed Be Thy Name” show you that this album is gigantic. Iron Maiden forever!

Check out the tracks: “Run To The Hills”; "The Number Of The Beast" and “Fear Of The Dark”.

This 2017 reissued triple LP housed in a gatefold sleeve with remastered audio is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl by Parlophone Records.
