BRUCE DICKINSON Performs First Spoken Word Show On UK Tour; Reaction Video Available
August 3, 2021, a month ago
On August 1st, Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson kicked off his first ever UK spoken word tour at Theatre Royal in Brighton. A short clip featuring feedback of those in attendance on the night can be viewed below.
Dickinson recently guested on Steve Wright In The Afternoon on BBC Radio 2 on July 1st and discussed his critically acclaimed spoken word shows. Check out the interview below. The chat begins at the 1:30 mark.
On the unscripted audience participation portion of the show
Dickinson: "They (the audience) can ask about anything. Some of them ask about the band, you get unwitting ones where people will say… somebody wrote on a cue card: 'Do you remember meeting my mom in a hotel in Budapest in 1983?' And now my brain's really racing. And at the end of it he put, 'By the way, you're not my dad. I checked.' When you get stuff like that, it's sort of comedy gold, really. It's quite a straightforward question, but it's how you glue it together. I do take the Mickey out of, largely, myself. I have been guilty of wearing... unrepentantly, I should add... some of the most ridiculous trousers in the world. It all makes good sense and it's all in the best possible taste, and there's a reason why I'm not invited to Paris Fashion Week."
