'Scream For Me Sarajevo' is based on the writings of bassist Chris Dale, who was on the mission and wrote exclusively of his experiences here at Metal Talk. The film was made by Jasenko Pasic, director Tarik Hodzic and producer Adnan Cuhara and features interviews with Bruce and the band and many Bosnians who lived through the siege and went to the gig.

Bruce Dickinson was the only foreign artist crazy enough to play a full show in Sarajevo during its four year siege and the tale is one of tears, laughter and music, above all showing that the power of music can lift the human spirit over all obstacles.

The film will get a worldwide release in 2018 but meanwhile fans have a chance to see the film exclusively in Amsterdam next weekend. Tickets can be obtained from

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
