Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson speaked up about his upcoming ‘An Evening With Bruce Dickinson’ event during an appearance on BBC Radio.
Instead of making musical concerts and shows, Bruce announced that he will be meeting his followers face to face with ‘An Evening With Bruce Dickinson,’ which will start in the beginning of August.
In the conversation, Bruce explained where he got the idea of such an event and said that it actually came from the day when he released ‘What Does This Button Do?’ autobiography book back in 2017.
According to Bruce, everybody wanted him to make short tours to make reading of his book. However, he thought that it wouldn’t be interesting for anybody and decided to add a few storylines and improvisations to the shows.
Bruce Dickinson said:
“It all started out years ago when I did this biography, ‘What Does This Button Do? And they said, ‘Well, let’s go on a short tour doing readings from the book.’
And I went, ‘Well, that’s a bit boring. Why would anybody just turn up? They can read the book themselves.’
So I sort of enhanced it with a few ripe stories, and it went down very well. And then I added to it with a bit of improv. So the last 45 minutes is based on something that I saw Quentin Crisp, of all people.”
Further in the conversation, Bruce also mentioned that people can ask whatever they want during the An Evening With Bruce Dickinson events even if it is about the band or something personal.
