  BRUCE DICKINSON TO HOLD THREE IN CONVERSATION EVENTS TO LAUNCH AUTOBIOGRAPHY
16th September 2017



bruce dickinson

Bruce Dickinson's autobiography, 'What Does This Button Do?', is due to be released on Thursday 19th October and the man himself will be holding three exclusive 'A Conversation with...' events in October in London, Manchester and Edinburgh.

At these very special events Bruce will read from his autobiography, which is the long-awaited window into the life, heart and mind of a Metal legend.

Bruce is one of the world's most storied musicians and has been the internationally-acclaimed lead singer of Iron Maiden for more than thirty years, and he's lived an extraordinary off-stage existence too.

A true polymath, Bruce is an airline pilot and captain, an aviation entrepreneur, a beer brewer, motivational speaker, film scriptwriter, twice-published novelist, radio presenter, TV actor and a world-class fencer.

Dates for the 'A Conversation with...' evenings are:
Tuesday 17th October, 7.30pm: Troxy, London
Friday 20th October, 7.00pm: Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh
Sunday 22nd October, 2.00pm: The Lowry, Salford Quays

Tickets are available right here.

Bruce's solo catalogue will be reissued by BMG on vinyl on 27th October.

The six solo albums span from 1990 to 2005 and have been cut from the original masters for reissue on heavyweight, black 180g vinyl in artworked sleeves. Two of the titles, 'The Chemical Wedding' and 'Tyranny Of Souls', are being made available for the first time ever on vinyl.

The remaining four titles, 'Tattooed Millionaire', 'Balls To Picasso', 'Skunkworks' and 'Accident Of Birth', have been long out of print, with the latter two titles now expanded to double LPs for optimum sound.

As a special bonus to fans, all six albums will also be available in a limited edition 'Soloworks' box.

From the stripped down, hard rock of Bruce's 1990 debut solo album 'Tattooed Millionaire' and its heavier successor, 'Balls To Picasso' (1994), through the cutting edge alt-rock of 'Skunkworks' (1996) and the Heavy Metal celebration of 1997s 'Accident Of Birth' to the modern Metal with a traditional heart of 1998s 'The Chemical Wedding' and final solo foray, 'Tyranny Of Souls' (2005), these six albums are an essential part of Bruce's story outside of Maiden.

All fans who purchase the complete 'Soloworks' box at brucedickinsonsoloworks.com will receive a double-sided 24" x 36" Bruce Dickinson poster.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
