Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson Comments On His Recent Positive COVID-19 Diagnosis


Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has revealed that he recently tested positive for COVID-19 amid his spoken word tour in the UK earlier this month. The diagnosis forced him to reschedule the final two dates of the undertaking to October.

Dickinson himself had already been fully vaccinated against the aforementioned disease and told of receiving the positive test result:

“I thought, oh well, shit. I was kind of sneezing a bit. For a couple of days, I felt a bit groggy, kind of like the flu, and that was it. And I’m 63 years old. I’ve pretty much got no doubt that had I not had the vaccine, I could be in serious trouble.”

Speaking of getting vaccinated for COVID-19, he offered:

“…Personally, I think people are just very badly advised if they don’t go and get themselves double jabbed as quickly as possible, not for the reasons of going into concerts, but for their own health.”

“Having said that, even if you’ve had a double jab, you can still get Covid, and therefore you can spread it to other people who might not have been vaccinated and they might get very sick and die. Now you cannot legislate against mortality.

There are many things in this world that kill people and they’re not illegal but are unfortunate. Cancer kills a lot of people. Heart attacks kill a lot of people. Obesity kills a lot of people. Malaria kills a shitload of people every year. … So at some point, we have to just go, ‘We’re probably going to have to live with this. And if we’re going to live with it, then you have your vaccination.'”

The rescheduled dates for his ‘An Evening With Bruce Dickinson‘ spoken word tour include:

10/16 London, UK – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire
10/17 Birmingham, UK – The Alexandra

Ahead of that will be the September 03rd arrival of the band’s seventeenth studio album “Senjutsu“.
