Live at Donington was the recording of Iron Maiden's second headlining appearance at the Monsters of Rock festival at 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.
