AllMusic Review by

Extremely cheesy, yet that's exactly what makes Raising Hell such a blast to watch. In what is supposed to be singer Bruce Dickinson's last concert, the band uses theatrics similar to those of Alice Cooper, but takes them one step further, adding more grotesque effects. Theatrical highlights include the murder of a young woman using a table saw and the amputation of guitarist Dave Murray's hands. The selection of songs is also decent, covering most of the band's biggest hits. So silly it's entertaining, Raising Hell will please most Iron Maiden fans.
