During a somewhat recent live show, a fan got on stage where the band was performing, and Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson was not cool with it. In fact, Dickinson ended up having to physically remove the guy from the stage himself! This concert took place on September 22nd in Anaheim, California.
As you will see in the video footage below, during a performance of the band’s song “Aces High,” a fan approaches Dickinson, but the frontman is making gestures that appear to give the impression of “back off.” However, the fan continues to make their way onto the stage; they start moving about and headbanging.
Bruce sees this and goes up to the fan – still singing to the band’s song mind you – and grabs the guy and starts pulling him off stage! You can find a couple videos of this incident below.
Earlier this year, Bruce went off on a live audience who were lighting flairs in the crowd. When he saw the flairs light up, the Iron Maiden frontman let loose some strong words. You can check out footage of that incident via this link here. That said, Bruce has also had more positive interactions with fans; a while ago, we came across a video that features a very dedicated Iron Maiden fan where he and Dickinson had one hell of an interaction.
If you would like to see Iron Maiden live, you will be happy to know that the band is still currently on the road as part of their big North American tour! You can find all the upcoming locations and dates associated with that tour below.
