Live After Death is a live album by the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, released on October 14, 1985. It was recorded during the band's World Slavery Tour.
The first 13 tracks (12 songs and the intro) were recorded at the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, California on March 14-17 1985. The last 5 songs were recorded earlier on the same tour, at the Hammersmith Odeon (now known as the Hammersmith Apollo) in London on October 8, 9, 10 and 12 1984. On the original double LP version, the songs from Long Beach are on the first three sides, whereas the songs recorded in London ("Wrathchild", "Children of the Damned", "22 Acacia Avenue", "Die With Your Boots On" and "Phantom of the Opera") were on side four.
The initial CD version (released in December, 1985) of this album includes everything that the first three sides of the LP version contain. The fourth side was not included on the original release, due to capacity problems. Also, "Running Free" is shortened from about 8:43 on vinyl to about 3:16 on the CD by eliminating the crowd interaction. The 1998 remastered re-release has the unedited version, and includes a second CD with the tracks that were previously missing. It should be noted that the 1995 re-release also has an extra CD, but that had the b-sides from the singles on it. Also, this re-release was not remastered.
The Live After Death video was also recorded at the Long Beach Arena, but on a different night. It contains almost the entire gig, complete with intro and encore, and closes with "Sanctuary", which was not on the LP or original CD release of the album. A live Version of "Sanctuary" Recorded at the Long Beach Shows was included on a Bonus Disk Packaged with the 1995 reissue, this Disk also Includes "Losfer Words (Big 'Orra)" and "Murders in the Rue Morgue" from the Hammersmith Shows.
Two singles were released from Live After Death: "Running Free" and "Run to the Hills"
