IRON MAIDEN Issue "Rock In Rio" DVD In Europe, Postpone American Release

June 7, 2002

IRON MAIDEN's long-awaited Rock In Rio double DVD and VHS will finally be released on Monday, June 10th in PAL format. However last minute production problems have forced delay of the NTSC version, resulting in the North American, South American, Australian and Japanese release being put back to July 16th. According to a message posted on IRON MAIDEN's official web site, "the delay is due to an audio problem during the concert footage, which was detected once local plants had reached manufacturing and final test disks were sent for approval. The audio problem was enough to warrant the authoring of new masters, which in turn has delayed the DVD pressing process. The band regret the delay as they know it has been a long wait and hope that fans will understand that the subsequent technical delay and the decisions made were for the very best of quality reasons."
