On board their customized Boeing 757 plane named Ed Force One, and piloted by lead singer and airline captain Bruce Dickinson, Iron Maiden, their crew, and 12 tons of equipment traversed the planet and broke the mold of traditional touring forever by playing concerts in every continent except Antarctica over the course of the Somewhere Back In Time Tour of 2008–2009 and The Final Frontier Tour of 2010–2011. The band's official photographer, John McMurtrie, accompanied them throughout this mammoth and groundbreaking undertaking, and the exciting results of his fly-on-the-wall coverage are represented in this unique pictorial odyssey. John's unrestricted access has allowed him to capture exclusive images and moments both onstage and off, in nearly 600 spectacular photographs annotated with individual insights and anecdotes. Providing their legions of loyal fans with an up-close look at the band as they circumnavigate the globe, this book provides an unprecedented insight into one of the most adventurous rock tours ever undertaken; and into what makes this band so special.
