The Final Frontier is Iron Maiden's fifteenth studio album, released in August 2010 (13th in Germany and Finland). At 76 minutes and 34 seconds long, it is their second longest album to date after The Book of Souls. It is the band's last album to be released by EMI, marking the end of the band's 30-year relationship with the label. The North American leg of their tour in support of the album started in Dallas, Texas on 9 June 2010, with a European tour beginning in Dublin on 30 July. As these dates preceded the record's release, "El Dorado" was the only new song played in 2010. The full album tour commenced in Moscow on 11 February 2011, and would see the band visit South East Asia, Australia, South America and Florida, as well as returning to Europe. The tour led to the release of a live album and video, entitled En Vivo!, which was released in March 2012.
