Released this Friday, 29th June 2018, 'Scream For Me Sarajevo' has been described as; "A true tale of triumph over tragedy". Recorded during the, at the time, former Iron Maiden front man's 1994 'Balls To Picasso' tour, we've got three DVD sets to give away.
Scream for Me Sarajevo is the astonishing story of the most unlikely of rock concerts, performed by Bruce Dickinson and his band Skunkworks. Risking their lives, they were smuggled into the besieged city to play a concert for its citizens amidst the chaos of war.
The film is far from a straight concert movie and provides an insight into a wider story of the people of Sarajevo taking drastic measures to endure the privations of war and pushing the boundaries to survive. It reflects a thriving underground arts community who were living their lives in the shadow of war and making music in the face of devastating loss, and the huge impact the concert had on the people of Sarajevo at a time when they thought they had been forgotten by the rest of the world.
This must-see documentary includes footage of the gig and the war itself, as well as recent interviews with Bruce and his band mates. The documentary also follows Bruce making an emotional return to Sarajevo, “War turns the world on its head, but this is an optimistic message”. Speaking of his experience Bruce says, “It changed the way I viewed life, death and other human beings”.*
In addition to the film’s release, via Eagle Vision, the music from the film is being released on CD/double LP via BMG.
Comprising music from the film which spans Bruce Dickinson’s solo career, the album features the rarities ‘Acoustic Song’ (previously only available as a bonus track on the 2001 Best Of Special Edition), ‘Inertia (Live)’ (previously only available as a bonus track on the expanded re-release of ‘Skunkworks’ in 2005) and the album closer ‘Eternal’ (previously only available as Japanese bonus tracks on ‘Tyranny Of Souls’).
