Producer Kevin Shirley is mixing Iron Maiden right now.
It has become the habit for Iron Maiden to preserve every tour on a DVD. It hasn’t always resulted in a product, the 2005 Early Days show and the 2007 Donington performance being prime examples of lost DVDs, but the intention seems to be that every tour shall be documented.
Producer Kevin Shirley, Maiden’s go-to-guy since 2000, has revealed on his own Facebook page that he is mixing Iron Maiden right now. Well, what project could that be?
We reported earlier that Shirley was present for Maiden’s Donington performance this summer and that the show was to be mixed. Some rough-ish mixes have already turned up in these 20 minutes of Maiden mayhem that Sky posted:
Since then, Shirley has been on site for the recording of Maiden’s Sao Paulo and Rio concerts, right at the end of the Maiden England World Tour. So it seems that the Maiden camp have decided that the recently completed tour deserves a live release.
We would sure like an addition to the ever-growing pantheon of Iron Maiden concert videos! So we’re keeping fingers crossed for a great mix and decent editing.
But which concert is currently receiving the Shirley treatment? Which of the three would you rather see as an official live DVD?
