Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson has already cancelled the debut of his new one-man show…
The proposed John Cleese-inspired “Flight 666 and other stories” was set to debut in Oslo, Norway on November 2nd this fall. But this week ticket holders got an email about cancellation and refunds.
What could be the reason? The show had only sold about 200 tickets to date, but there were still a few months to go for further promotion. On the other hand, Dickinson claimed at the time of the announcement that no plans were actually finalized as to what the show’s content or form would be.
With the 2013 Maiden England tour ongoing, did Dickinson take on too much for once…?
According to some fans, the promoter has cited aviation activities as the official reason for the cancellation when emailed about it. But that also sounds a bit like the obvious reason for anything being cancelled in Bruce’s life these days.
In terms of speculation, Maiden fans might want to consider the possibility that an extension of the tour was what got in the way. That might be a long shot, but a UK tour in November would fit nicely with the Maiden England concept, wouldn’t it?
Dickinson tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.

A proper UK tour would be nice, although I think it is time to start thinking about recording a new album. 🙂
On a completely unrelated note, Maiden played a blinder in Zagreb!
Yeah, the new album thing… Some people report Bruce stating that 2015 looks likely, but I haven’t been able to read those reports. If he said something like that recently, at least a new record looks quite certain.
No doubt it was a blinder in Zagreb! The shows have gotten better and better on the European tour.
Christer, you can find the Turkish interview where Bruce mentions 2015 here:
One of the best things about the Zagreb show was seeing the band, particularly Bruce, that fired up and the amazing response they got from the audience. Respect to these guys for playing with that intensity anywhere in the world.
Yes, that’s the same thing I read on a different website, through the awful Google translation…
I always find it amazing that Maiden can tour the world for a year, and so few people/journos actually ask them anything interesting about the future. Happens every tour! 😀
Used the interview for a little piece on this site. Gave you due credit for pointing it out, Ghost! 🙂
