Shot in pristine Hi-Def with superb 5.1 surround sound and projected in 2K digital cinemas, the highest quality in cinemas today- the big screen debut will be the ultimate Maiden assault on the senses. Fans can experience an all access pass to shows, backstage banter, the exhaustion and fan pandemonium of travelling with band and crew.
