Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has mocked classic bands who play all their songs by detuning their instruments.
This happened during a spoken word show in Vienna, Austria.
“People ask me, ‘How do you warm up your voice before a show?’ And, actually, I do about five minutes – that’s all. Before that, if we’re just starting a tour, I do a bit more than that.
“Once we are into it and we’re doing shows three or four times a week, usually, I know my voice and I can get into it within five minutes – boom! – right from the first song, which is ‘Aces High.’
“So it’s [points his finger to the venue’s ceiling to indicate high notes], followed by ‘Where Eagles Dare,’ which is [points to the ceiling again].
“So, we start off with some pretty high songs, and stuff like that, and then it calms down a bit, and then it gets super difficult at the end, where you get ‘Hallowed [Be Thy Name]’ and ‘Run To The Hills’ and things like that. So it’s quite a tough set to sing.
“We do all of our songs in Maiden, we do all of them in the original key. We don’t detune like some other people do. We don’t do any of that. I suppose if one day we have to, we have to, but we don’t have to do it now, and I think the songs sound better as a result of it. They’re meant to be played in that key.”
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.”
