Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson Shows Up at Box Office to Sell Tickets to Secret Solo Gigs

Legendary Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson announced two last-minute shows at the famed Whisky a Go Go for Friday (April 12th) and Saturday (April 13th). Even more surprising, he showed up at the box office on Friday morning to sell the tickets himself.

“As we were holed up in our North Hollywood Rehearsal Studio preparing for the tour, we thought that since rehearsals were going so well maybe we should have a little fun and do something last-minute here in LA,” stated Dickinson.

He added, “Putting tickets for sale at an actual box office should remind people what it used to be like back when I started gigging! We’re raring to go and I’m just so excited to unleash this band on the world at the iconic Whiskey a Go Go.”

The shows will mark Dickinson’s first solo gigs in 20 years, and will precede a concert set for Monday (April 15th) at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California All three shows will serve as a warm-up for Dickinson’s international “Mandrake Project Tour,” officially kicking off on April 18th in Guadalajara, Mexico, and running through a July 21st show in Athens, Greece (tickets available here).

We’re guessing that Dickinson kept the ticket prices relatively low for the secret gigs, as he recently called out U2 for charging $1,200 for their recent shows at The Sphere in Las Vegas.

Dickinson is touring in support of his new solo album, The Mandrake Project, which arrived last month. The album is accompanied by a comic book series that’s rolling out over 12 quarterly issues.

Fans can also catch Dickinson when Iron Maiden embark on a North American tour in October. Tickets to those shows are available here.
