Stage Set[edit]

Iron Maiden used a wraparound stage, complete with podiums and lighting rig. The walls were painted with Eddies from previous albums. During the song "The Clairvoyant," a walk-on Eddie, based on the "Edward The Great" Eddie, surfaced during this song. An additional giant Eddie appeared during "Iron Maiden" from behind the stage as a replica from the "Visions of The Beast" DVD.
