On Saturday, June 22, IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson was one of the speakers at this year’s Campus Party Brasíia technology festival in Brasíia, the capital of Brazil. The third annual event gathers developers, gamers and computer enthusiasts. Video footage of Bruce‘s appearance can be seen below.
Dickinson joined IRON MAIDEN in 1981, replacing Paul Di’Anno, and made his recording debut with the band on the 1982 album “The Number Of The Beast”. He quit the band in 1993, pursuing several solo projects, and rejoined in 1999.
Dickinson, who turned 60 in August 2018, has several other interests beyond music. He is a licensed commercial pilot and owns an aviation company. He has also done some acting and brewed beer.
Bruce recently announced the fall 2019 European leg of his “What Does This Button Do? An Evening With Bruce Dickinson” spoken-word tour. The trek sees the rocker sharing stories from his autobiography, “What Does This Button Do?”
“What Does This Button Do?”, landed at No. 10 on the New York Times “Hardcover Nonfiction” best sellers list. It was released in the U.S. in October 2017 via Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.
“What Does This Button Do?” is Dickinson‘s third book. He has previously published two satirical novels, “The Adventures Of Lord Iffy Boatrace” about the English upper classes and “The Missionary Position” about televangelism.
