IRON MAIDEN have confirmed via the group's official web site that they will be issuing their much-anticipated Rock In Rio live CD in the spring, while the much-anticipated DVD release filmed at same show in January 2001 has been put on hold indefinitely, pending the resolution of a number of production problems, which have resulted in bassist/mainman Steve Harris taking control of the entire project. According to an official statement posted at the site, as always with IRON MAIDEN, the DVD is being made the best it possibly can and has had involvement with companies both in Los Angeles and London who have worked on a number of major Hollywood studio releases as this project is a massive piece of work. The show itself was shot using 18 cameras and the documentary footage adds up to nearly 80 hours of footage. A solid release date for both the upcoming CD and DVD is expected to be announced shortly.
