Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson Announces North American Spoken Word Tour

Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson Announces North American Spoken Word Tour

Apparently quite pleased with the run of spoken word shows he hosted in his native U.K. this past summer, Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has announced a North American spoken word tour for early 2022 that will span two and a half months and includes 10 dates in Canada.

Split into two parts, the first section of the show sees Bruce taking a humorous and often satirical look at the world from his own very personal perspective, treating the audience to private insights into his drive and ambition, peppered with plenty of Maiden anecdotes, and a myriad of other experiences encompassing not just the giddy heights but also the extreme lows, as told first-hand in his inimitable anarchic style, punctuated with photographs, videos and sometimes even erupting into song a-capella, to illustrate a point. The second section of the evening is devoted entirely to a fan question-and-answer session, with the opportunity to pose questions on any subject whatsoever. 

These shows could be fun, yeah? Bruce is such an eccentric character, and it feels like a once-in-a-lifetime experience to get to see him in this format. Hopefully tickets aren’t too expensive.
