VH1 Classic is celebrating British heavy rock legends Iron Maiden in a big way for the premiere of "Roc Doc: Iron Maiden: Flight 666" on Saturday, June 6 at 9PM*." Iron Maiden: Flight 666" is an inspirational account of the chaotic and often humorous world of a band touring the four corners of the world, giving a behind-the-scenes look at what happens on and off stage. For the first time ever the band gave full access to a film crew to document their journey for their Somewhere Back in Time World Tour and this resulted in the critically acclaimed, full-length documentary film. Delivering some of the most spectacular live footage ever seen of the band, the film takes viewers from Mumbai to Santiago, L.A. to Sydney, Tokyo to Sao Paolo and many major cities between. Through drama, excitement and fan pandemonium, the film is an honest and revealing portrait of one of the world's most successful rock bands.

Directed by two-time Academy Award winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple and Executive Produced by Michael Lang, the original festival organizer, the film examines Woodstock from the perspectives of not only the musicians who graced the stage, but the fans who gathered in mass, the concert promoters who risked everything and countless others whose unique experiences help paint a tapestry of Woodstock that hasn't been seen in recent years.
