Bruce Dickinson’s explosive performances as front man of rock legends Iron Maiden have been enjoyed by stadiums full of loyal fans for years. But it’s his new spoken word solo show that is currently drawing the crowds wherever it appears in the world.
Bruce’s speaking tour, based on his best-selling autobiography “What Does This Button Do?”, has been going down a storm with sell out dates in the US, Europe, Australia and the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
Testament to Bruce’s natural flair for showmanship and telling a ripping yarn, his one-man show is extending its run to keep up with demand from fans. As Bruce recently explained in an interview with New Zealand tv show “The Project” prior to his Auckland event:
“The show I do, basically, it’s a one-man show. It morphed out of being initially promo for the book. The publisher said, ‘we’re gonna rent a little theatre and you just do some readings,’ and I thought, ‘well, that’s kind of dull, really.’ So years ago, when I was an undergraduate in college, my then-girlfriend persuaded me to go and see a one-man show by a guy called Quentin Crisp. So I had to be dragged along: ‘oh, who is this guy?’. Anyway, it was absolutely brilliant. One of the things he did in the second half was he took cue cards from the audience who wrote questions down, and he basically came and did almost like an improv thing where he answered the questions. So I thought that would be nice to do. So I sort of constructed this show, as it were, and just winged it. And it was so good, they asked me back to do the Edinburgh [International Book] Festival. And then the next thing after that was I’ve ended up doing a bunch of them in Scandinavia, and I’m now doing Israel and Greece and more shows in Scandinavia and everything else. So, all of a sudden, I’ve got myself this little extra gig.”
The resulting show delivers a relaxed evening of improvised entertainment interspersed with snippets from Bruce’s book, and the opportunity for the audience to ask him anything they like. Be prepared for searing honesty in his answers!
