Iron Maiden released a new album, Senjutsu, in September (order on vinyl), and while the next leg of their Legacy of the Beast tour isn't until June of 2022, frontman Bruce Dickinson will head to North America earlier next year for a spoken word tour. "An Evening with Bruce Dickinson" runs from January through March, hitting Tampa, Atlanta, Nashville, Detroit, Albany, NC, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Chicago, Denver, Dallas, Austin, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Montreal, Quebec City, and more. See all dates below.

The NYC show is at Town Hall on February 4, and the Los Angeles show is at Orpheum Theatre on March 1. Tickets to those and all dates go on sale Friday, November 5 at 10 AM local time, with various presales starting Wednesday, November 3 at 10 AM local time.

A description of Bruce's spoken word shows reads:

Split into two parts, the first section of the show sees Bruce taking a humorous and often satirical look at the world from his own very personal perspective, treating the audience to private insights into his drive and ambition, peppered with plenty of Maiden anecdotes, and a myriad of other experiences encompassing not just the giddy heights but also the extreme lows, told first-hand in his inimitable anarchic style, punctuated with photographs and sometimes even erupting into song a-capella, to illustrate a point.

The final section of the evening is devoted entirely to a Q&A session, with the opportunity to pose questions on any subject whatsoever. As Bruce’s answers will all be completely improvised – the more left-field and quirky the question, the more interesting and compelling the response is likely to be!
