Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson told Rolling Stone Magazine that he has tested positive for novel coronavirus.
Over a month ago, Bruce announced that he will make a non-musical tour in August, named ‘An Evening With Bruce Dickinson,’ and he has been meeting the audience since the beginning of this month.
Although the tour was supposed to continue, Bruce announced two days ago that one of the family members tested positive for COVID-19, and he had to postpone the last two shows of the tour due to the restrictions.
Even though Dickinson tested negative in the first place, he went under quarantine due to the safety protocols. Unfortunately, it turns out that the iconic singer also caught the novel coronavirus from his immediate family member.
The rockstar revealed that he was sneezing a bit for the last couple of days, and he felt groggy at the same time. However, he thought that he had contracted common flu as he wasn’t experiencing any severe symptoms.
Furthermore, Bruce pointed out that it could have been worse, as his symptoms as this mild because of being fully vaccinated. In this way, he also showed his fans why it is crucial to get the much-discussed vaccine.
Bruce Dickinson explained his COVID-19 diagnosis in the interview:
“I thought, ‘Oh well, shit.’ I was kind of sneezing a bit. For a couple of days, I felt a bit groggy, kind of like the flu, and that was it.
And I’m 63 years old. I’ve pretty much got no doubt that had I not had the vaccine, I could be in serious trouble.”
Additionally, Bruce Dickinson announced that he has postponed the last two shows through October this year, and the legendary frontman will be meeting the audience as soon as possible.
