Yorkshire date for Iron Maiden legend Bruce Dickinson
Iron Maiden legend Bruce Dickinson is heading out on his first-ever UK spoken word tour this summer.
And St George's Hall in Bradford will be the place to be for fans keen to enjoy a spend an up-close and personal evening with one of the world’s most captivating icons in an intimate environment.
His Evening With tour stops off in the city on Thursday, August 5, with tickets set go on general sale at 10am on Thursday, April 29 via ticketmaster.co.uk .
Aside from decades spent delivering high-octane performances with his larger-than-life persona in Iron Maiden, Bruce has lived an extraordinary off-stage existence too.
A true polymath, his accomplishments include: pilot and airline captain, aviation entrepreneur, beer brewer, motivational speaker, film scriptwriter, twice-published novelist and Sunday Times best-selling author, radio presenter, TV actor, sports commentator and international fencer.
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. It promises to be 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 acapella, to illustrate a point.
The final section of the evening is devoted entirely to a Q&A session, with the opportunity to pose questions on any subject whatsoever. And all Dickinson's answers will all be completely improvised.
