Bruce Dickinson announces UK book tour

Bruce Dickinson

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has announced a short UK personal appearance tour in support of his autobiography.

What Does This Button Do? is to be published via HarperCollins on October 18, and the three events take place around that date.

The £30 ticket price includes a hardback copy of the book plus a bottle of Maiden’s Trooper beer or a soft drink. Tickets go on sale at 9am today (September 1) via

HarperCollins say: “In What Does This Button Do?, Bruce – a man who famously never gives interviews about his personal life – shares, for the first time, the most fascinating recollections, including his thirty years with Maiden, the early days, his childhood within the eccentric British school system, going solo, realising his dream of flying jumbo jets and his recent battle with tongue cancer.

“Dickinson is so much more than the frontman of one of the biggest bands on the planet. A rock icon, a true renaissance man, Bruce has been, and remains, a man of legend.

“Bold, honest, intelligent and very entertaining, What Does This Button Do? is the long-awaited window into the life, heart and mind of one of our most adventurous and multifaceted sons.”

Dickinson last week announced a box set of his solo albums, which is released on October 27. Maiden recently completed their world tour in support of 16th album The Book Of Souls and they’re expected to return next year.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
