In the doc, frontman Bruce Dickinson gives fans insight into the 140-date tour including his workout routine, the band’s rider and the equipment that goes into making a stage show of this caliber.

He later describes the tour as the “strange world that I live in – this funny little hobbit world behind the stage, which is all dark and dingy and things like that, with, like, plastic capes and flamethrowers.”

Dickinson also goes through his post-show routine which sees him breathing into a towel to come down off the high of being on stage. Check out the first episode below.
