While Iron Maiden are set to have a busy 2022 with their Legacy Of The Beast shows, before that frontman Bruce Dickinson will head out the road for a solo spoken-word tour.

The heavy metal icon has announced six UK dates on 'An Evening With…' style run this summer, with the two-part event consisting of "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, 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 a capella, to illustrate a point".

Then, a Q&A session will follow, "with the opportunity to pose questions on any subject whatsoever. As Bruce’s answers will all be completely improvised – the more left-field and quirky the question, the more interesting and compelling the response is likely to be!"

Tickets go on sale this Thursday, April 29, at 10am.
