Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson will debut his new, spoken-word show this November in Oslo!
So what’s it all about??
“We haven’t really planned anything yet, but I was talking to my promoter and we discussed the John Cleese one-man show and he wondered if that was something I would consider,” Dickinson tells Norway’s VG newspaper. “I liked the idea – maybe because it was kind of crazy – but we’ll see how it goes and what the audience thinks of it. Maybe we’ll set up some more shows in other cities.”
Fan site Maiden Revelations reports the show will be based around the“Iron Maiden: Flight 666” movie, which follows the metal icons on the first leg of their “Somewhere Back In Time World Tour” in February and March of 2008.
“Everyone that attended one of those flights has a story to tell, but these never made it to the movie, so why not reveal the things that happened in the background that led to the movie ‘Flight 666’?” the singer explained.
“I will, of course, answer questions, but this show will be about everything that didn’t get aired in the movie,” explained Dickinson. “It’s not about the band Iron Maiden. I won’t tell stories about Nicko’s [McBrain] drum heads or Steve’s [Harris] bass strings. It will basically be about my experiences as a pilot. I can talk about the technicalities and a lot of anecdotes from within the flight environment.”
The Bruce Dickinson show will take place in Oslo Konserthus on November 2.
Now if only we knew a pilot who could fly us there!?!
Meanwhile in Paris..
