Legendary Iron Maiden have been on tour for more than 2 years now after the release of their last studio album. Frontman Bruce Dickinson is one of the best frontman of all time. Iron Maiden celebrated the success of the album with a world tour with a phenomenal production. Onstage as well as offstage, Bruce is a legend who cares for his fans. Iron Maiden production is huge and fans get to witness the best in the business performance by the legends. Recently there was an incident at the venue when Iron Maiden were on stage. As expected legendary Bruce Dickinson did a gentleman’s act.
He temporarily stopped IRON MAIDEN‘s concert after he allegedly witnessed a fan being beaten by “ten security guards.”
Bruce took the mic and expressed his concern over the situation.
“We’ve got an IRON MAIDEN fan backstage who’s had the sh*t kicked out of him by ten security guards.”
“I saw one security guard lean over the barrier and punch a kid half his size in the face four times.”
This lead to lots of fans booing the security guards.
Bruce further said:
“There were ten people. Ten people! This is not the f*cking mixed martial arts. If it was the mixed martial arts, you’d have a referee, you know. This is not that.
“We’ve played to several hundred thousand people so far on this tour. This is the first time anything like this has happened. I don’t know if this happens in this building all the time, I don’t know if this is an act of f*cking madness, and I hope that kid is getting hospital treatment now because he’s bleeding from head wounds. I hope that kid takes this building to the f*cking cleaners.
Bruce further requested fans to share the footage so that the band can help them find the people who are responsible.
“And if anybody has any footage — camera footage or anything — then we would be pleased to help facilitate it to find the bullies and the f*cking criminals who are responsible. It’s not necessary, it’s not big, it’s not clever. It’s just called ‘bullying’ — it’s as simple as that. So this is a very appropriate song. It’s called ‘The Evil That Men Do’.”
Fan-filmed video footage of Bruce addressing the crowd can be seen below:
Dickenson told crowd he hopes the fan takes the venue “to the cleaners” after “bleeding from head wounds.”
Security at the door declined to comment and declined to say who was in charge.
