Live at Donington was the recording of Iron Maiden's second headlining appearance at the Monsters of Rock festival at Donington Park, a motorsport circuit located near Castle Donington, on 22 August 1992 during the Fear of the Dark Tour in front of a crowd of almost 80,000. It was originally only released as a limited edition triple vinyl set, with a 2 disc CD release only in Brazil, Canada, Holland, Italy, South Korea, UK and Japan,[2] but became a regular part of the band's CD catalogue with the 1998 reissues.

Guitarist Adrian Smith joins the band on this version of "Running Free".[3]

The 1998 reissue of this album has different artwork. Instead of the white cover with the logo, they put the original concert poster by Mark Wilkinson on the front cover.[4] Also, the track list was spread out differently, to make room for a multimedia section on disc 2.
