On the back of his recently released autobiography, "What Does This Button Do?", IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson is making a string of speaking appearances. On the tour, Dickinson is reading excerpts from his book, delivering slides and hosting a question-and-answer session in which fans can ask all the questions they have been dying to know about what it's like to front one of music's most iconic bands.
Video footage of Dickinson's entire February 28 spoken-word gig at TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht, Netherlands can be seen in three parts below.
Asked by a fan why he is growing his hair again, Bruce responded: "Well, if you noticed, all the people who objected to me cutting my hair were generally young people. They went, 'Why did you cut your hair?' I said, 'Because I want to look young.' But now I'm old. I'm growing my hair. Why? And that's to piss off all the old people who can't grow their hair anymore."
"What Does This Button Do?", landed at No. 10 on the New York Times "Hardcover Nonfiction" best sellers list. It was released in the U.S. in October 2017 via Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.
Dickinson joined IRON MAIDEN in 1981, replacing Paul Di'Anno, and made his recording debut with the band on the 1982 album "The Number Of The Beast". He quit the band in 1993, pursuing several solo projects, and rejoined in 1999.
Dickinson, who turned 60 last August, has several other interests beyond music. He is a licensed commercial pilot and owns an aviation company. He has written other books, done some acting and brewed beer.
