Metal Blade Records wrote about the documentary:

In 2008 Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen, the same guys who brought us Metal: A Headbangers Journey, traveled with heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN to document the band’s 2008 SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME WORLD TOUR. With camera’s in hand Sam and Scot traveled with the band and crew on Ed Force One, a customized Boeing 757 plane that carried the band, all their crew, 12 tons of stage equipment and was piloted by none other than Bruce Dickinson himself. The band, crew, Sam and Scot traveled in Ed Force One for 50,000 miles across 5 continents for 23 concerts in just 24 days; something that had never been done until IRON MAIDEN rose to the challenge.

IRON MAIDEN: FLIGHT 666 is a full length documentary film, about the first leg of the band’s historic SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME WORLD TOUR in February and March of 2008, considered to be the most ambitious and adventurous tour in rock history. The film is a revealing portrait of one of the world’s most successful rock bands and an inspirational and often humorous account of the chaotic world of a band on tour around the stadiums of the world. If you want to know what it is like to be part of the most adventurous tour in Rock history, you can’t miss seeing this. Taking you from Mumbai to Santiago, LA to Sydney, Tokyo to San Paolo and all points between, through exhaustion and fan pandemonium, travelling with band and crew on the plane, to and from shows, in the bar and during leisure time, this really is Access All Areas!!!

On Tuesday April 21st, metal fans will be descending upon select movie theaters across the world to watch the enthralling documentary film IRON MAIDEN: FLIGHT 666. So get on board for the most adventurous tour in rock history and get your tickets now while they’re still available.
