Raising Hell is a concert video by the heavy metal band Iron Maiden, filmed on 28 August 1993 at the Pinewood Studios in London, England and broadcast live on pay-per-view television in the United Kingdom and on MTV in North America.The video was originally distributed on VHS and Laserdisc by BMG Special Products in the US and EMI in the rest of the world. It was subsequently released on DVD several years later in the US.
The concert was the last to feature vocalist Bruce Dickinson until his return to the band in 1999.The band played on stage in conjunction with horror magician Simon Drake, who ended up "killing" Dickinson in an iron maiden torture device, "amputated" Dave Murray's hands on a table saw and "killed" members of the crew and audience.

No Prayer on the Road is a concert tour by the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden in support of their album No Prayer for the Dying. It is the first tour to feature Janick Gers, who replaced leaving guitarist Adrian Smith. Following their large-scale stage shows used in the 1980s, the band opted for a less elaborate production from this tour onwards, with bassist Steve Harris commenting, "We thought the Seventh Son ... stage show just got a bit out of hand. I mean, the actual Eddie and the backdrops I thought looked amazing, but the giant icebergs and stuff were a bit naff, I think, and we just wanted to get away from all that and turn everything into like a massive club gig again, which we really managed to do. And having Janick in the band gave everybody a much-needed kick up the arse, too, because, being new, he was so enthusiastic about everything. I think it made us all open our eyes a bit and look at things in a new way."
BBC Archives is a live album by the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, released on 4 November 2002 as part of the Eddie's Archive box set. It is a collection of songs from three live shows and one live radio broadcast, recorded by the BBC between 1979 and 1988.
