Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson announces spoken word UK tour

Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson has announced dates for his first-ever spoken-word tour of the UK.

The series – who has previously performed his “An Evening With” events in Europe and elsewhere – sees the rocker recounting stories from his life as presented in the 2017 memoir, “What Does This Button Do.”

Dickinson worked on the autobiography extensively while on the road for the band’s world tour in support of 2015’s “The Book Of Souls”, which covered 39 countries and 117 shows since February 2016. Dickinson filled seven A4 notebooks by writing his story in longhand, in addition to his duties as a performer and as the pilot of Iron Maiden’s 747 jumbo jet Ed Force One as he flew band, crew and 22 tons of equipment around the globe.

“What Does This Button Do?” debuted at No. 1 on the UK’s Sunday Times Bestsellers List and No. 10 on the New York Times' Hardcover Non-Fiction Best-Seller List upon its release.

"An Evening With Bruce Dickinson" will open in Brighton on August 1, with tickets for all shows going on sale Thursday, April 29 at 10 a.m.

Iron Maiden recently postponed their planned European leg of The Legacy Of The Beast tour to 2022 “due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic restrictions on global live events and travel.”
