The first and only official book from one of the world's biggest heavy metal bands, with a foreword by frontman Bruce Dickinson
On board their customized Boeing 757 plane named Ed Force One, and piloted by lead singer and airline captain Bruce Dickinson, Iron Maiden, their crew, and 12 tons of equipment traversed the planet and broke the mold of traditional touring forever by playing concerts in every continent except Antarctica over the course of the Somewhere Back In Time Tour of 20082009 and The Final Frontier Tour of 20102011. The band's official photographer, John McMurtrie, accompanied them throughout this mammoth and groundbreaking undertaking, and the exciting results of his fly-on-the-wall coverage are represented in this unique pictorial odyssey. John's unrestricted access has allowed him to capture exclusive images and moments both onstage and off, in nearly 600 spectacular photographs annotated with individual insights and anecdotes. Providing their legions of loyal fans with an up-close look at the band as they circumnavigate the globe, this book provides an unprecedented insight into one of the most adventurous rock tours ever undertaken; and into what makes this band so special.
This stunning coffee-table tome gives an intimate insight into the touring machine that covered the globe not once but twice between 2008 and 2011... McMurtrie puts the reader in the heart of the action with some excellent photography. GUITARIST This photo book by the official band photographer is perfect for ageing rockers in search of vicarious thrills, documenting two world tours from 2008-2011 and featuring baying fans, model monsters and backstage/mid-air japes aplenty -- Arthur House THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH On Board Flight 666 is an exclusive behind the scene photo book by band snapper John McMurtrie. As Brucie says in the introduction "if it's not in here, it probably didn't happen"...John catches spectacular live moments and candid snippets of life on the road with the band TERRORIZER a mighty tome, focusing as much on the offstage and on-plane shenanigans as much as the enormo-shows themselves... tons of gobsmacking scenes to digest - partly because the epic scale of the tours is so hard to comprehend. Few other bands have this much budget, let alone the creative vision, to attempt such a journey: this book is testimony to that -- Joel McIver RECORD COLLECTOR商品の説明をすべて表示する
Photos and stories as Iron Maiden wings their way around the globe with Captain Bruce Dickinson at the controls. Very cool indeed.
One story that stuck with me was the flight to Japan which was diverted and the concert cancelled due to the horrific events of the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear powerplant disaster. Very real and very human.
Highly recommend this book for anyone who is an Iron Maiden fan, loves aviation and the B-757. Just an all around great read.
But actually, even on top of that this book told me about some stuff I had absolutely no clue about! For example the part about the japanese tsunami during their 2011 world tour and the timeline showing how the band barely missed getting caught on the ground when it struck (since they were actually running behind schedule) was pretty amazing too....had no idea.
And while I don't want to say much more than that (so as not to ruin it for other fans) I will just say that I think if you want to call yourself a maiden fan YOU NEED TO HAVE THIS BOOK!
