Bruce Dickinson Comments On Manchester Terror Attack

May 29, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

During a concert last night at the O2 Arena in London, Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson commented on the terror attack in Manchester from earlier this month. The Maiden concert had heavy security, with police officers carrying machine guns and strict rules in place for fans entering the building.

He said: ““You’re all aware of everything that happened the other week. There’s no point going over it, it’s shit , it’s awful, it’s terrible and we’re not going to have any one minute’s silence or anything else like that. [Instead] We should make some fucking noise and celebrate the joy and say fuck these people. Last night they didn’t have a lot of policemen with guns [here]. There’s a lot more of them tonight and I said: ‘What the fuck is going on? Is there some weird shit going on? But apparently they’re all Maiden fans which I think is indescribably cool. There’s people from all over the world here tonight/ For me what is special about Maiden shows is that all of us all over the world, it doesn’t matter what race you are, what God you worship, or whether you like to boil an egg in three minutes, when we get together we are family.

Here’s a tracklist from the concert, followed by clips:

‘If Eternity Should Fail’
‘Speed Of Light’
