IRON MAIDEN's BRUCE DICKINSON delivers “From Rock Star To Businessman” spoken-word performance in São Paulo


IRON MAIDEN‘s Bruce Dickinson delivered a spoken-word performance, dubbed “From Rock Star To Businessman”, at the first Brazilian edition of the Summer Breeze festival on Saturday, April 29 at the Memorial da América Latina in São Paulo. Fan-filmed video of his appearance is now available.

Watch the footage below.

Despite being recognized mostly for his connection to heavy metal, Dickinson is also an entrepreneur and is involved in different creative projects. He’s a master brewer and has created his own brand of beer. Furthermore, he has a strong connection with the aviation sector, as he is a commercial pilot and the current president of Cardiff Aviation. He has also served as director of marketing for Astraeus Airlines.

Dickinson is considered one of the world’s most storied musicians. Aside from decades spent delivering high-octane performances with his larger-than-life persona in IRON MAIDENBruce has lived an extraordinary off-stage existence too. A true polymath, his accomplishments include: pilot and airline captain, aviation entrepreneur, beer brewer, motivational speaker, film scriptwriter, twice-published novelist and Sunday Times best-selling author, radio presenter, TV actor, sports commentator and international fencer… to name but a few.

Dickinson made his recording debut with IRON MAIDEN on the “Number Of The Beast” album in 1982. He quit the band in 1993 in order to pursue his solo career and was replaced by Blaze Bayley, who had previously been the lead singer of the metal band WOLFSBANE. After releasing two traditional metal albums with former MAIDEN guitarist Adrian SmithDickinson rejoined the band in 1999 along with Smith. Since then, Dickinson has only released one more solo album (the aforementioned “Tyranny Of Souls”) but has previously said that his solo career is not over.

In September 2021 IRON MAIDEN released their last full album ‘Senjutsu’, for which the band currently is out on a world tour.
