Watch crowd celebrate Bruce Dickinson’s 60th birthday in Birmingham


Iron Maiden are currently on The Legacy Of The Beast tour across the UK.

The rock icons played a memorable set at Birmingham’s Genting Arena earlier this week – on a night that just happened to be frontman Bruce Dickinson’s 60th birthday.

After the crowd sang happy birthday to him, Dickinson told the audience: “I had forgotten it was my 60th birthday until you reminded me.”

Drummer Nicko McBrain joked: “He’s the old git of the band now!”

Dickinson replied: “Stop mucking about and get on with the fucking concert!”

Maiden will bring the curtain down on the tour with a pair of shows at London’s O2 Arena on Friday and Saturday.

The band are the cover stars of the new issue of Metal Hammer magazine, which is on sale now. Fans can also get their hands on an exclusive Legacy Of The Beast bundle featuring the magazine, a Pharaoh Eddie patch and a limited edition Legacy Of The Beast figure.

There are only 666 bundles available worldwide and once they're gone, they're gone.
