Rock in Rio is a double live DVD set (also available on VHS & UMD[2]) by the heavy metal band, Iron Maiden. Besides showing the entire performance of the Rock in Rio show, the second disc also includes three special features with interviews with band members, a short documentary on the day in the life of Iron Maiden, and photos by official photographer, Ross Halfin. It claimed the No. 1 slot on the US Soundscan Music DVD Charts in its first week of release, while gaining No. 2 on the Soundscan Music Video Charts.[3] The performance featured at least one song from every Iron Maiden album released to this point apart from 1986's Somewhere in Time and 1990's No Prayer for the Dying.

The DVD was released worldwide by EMI on 10 June 2002, and in the US by Columbia Music Video. It was the final show on the band's 2000-2001 tour in support of the Brave New World album.

The concert had over 250,000 audience members. It was Iron Maiden's first live DVD release and was edited by bassist/founder Steve Harris.
