Flight 666: The Film (UMe)

Travelogue by the writer/director team that aced 2005 documentary Metal: A Headbanger's Journey rides 757 jet Ed Force One above four continents piloted by singer Bruce Dickinson and complete with band, a 70-man road crew, and 12 tons of equipment – a music tour first. Horns thrown by backwater metal neglects become international routine begging for more of Steve Harris sound-checking "Wrathchild" in Mumbai, India, and a second DVD of red-hot complete performances mimics 1980s MTV live metal vids strung together less in concert than the sold-separately CDs. High altitude and base repression stain "Run to the Hills" in Colombia.
