AllMusic Review by

As the title says, Live at Donington was recorded live at England's annual heavy metal festival, Castle Donington, on August 22, 1992. The performances are definitely an improvement over the disappointingly lackluster A Real Live Dead One collection (taken from the same tour), while the track listing is a near-exact duplicate of Dead One. Highlights include such Iron Maiden oldies but goodies as "The Number of the Beast," "Wrathchild," "2 Minutes to Midnight," "Hallowed Be Thy Name," "Iron Maiden," and the then-recent favs "Tailgunner," "Fear of the Dark," "Bring Your Daughter...to the Slaughter," and "Can I Play With Madness?" While fans of Maiden's more obscure material may prefer A Real Live Dead One, Live at Donington proves to be the better of the two on the strength of its far more inspired performances. While 1985's Live After Death remains Iron Maiden's definitive live collection, Live at Donington proved to be a proper follow-up.
