Bruce Dickinson performs a one-man show in NZ next month

Iron Maiden's frontman and lead singer Bruce Dickinson is set to perform his intimate one-man show in NZ, celebrating his recent autobiography 'What Does This Button Do?' at Auckland's Cordis Hotel this October.

The UK-born singer launched his career by singing in pub bands in the 1970s. He then joined Iron Maiden in 1981 with his first record with the band being 1982's famed 'The Number Of the Beast'. He quit the group in 1993 to pursue his solo career, rejoining again in 1999. Dickinson is well-known for his passion for flying, notably captaining Iron Maiden's converted charter plane Ed Force One during world tours.

In his special 'What Does This Button Do?' tour, fans will get the chance to ask Dickinson questions in an up-close-and-personal setting as he will be delivering compelling excerpts from the book and slides. Ticket purchasers will also receive a signed copy of the New York Times best-selling autobiography, which Rolling Stone describes as both insightful and entertaining.

"Throughout, he interweaves stories of Iron Maiden's glory and playing solo shows in war-torn Sarajevo with tales of recovering from falling off stages. He offers glimpses into his offstage life, whether it's fencing, piloting 757s, hosting a radio show or writing novels and screenplays—all with the requisite tales of bumps, scrapes, hurt feelings and terrifying engine malfunctions. And in the book's longest chapter, he opens up about the battle with cancer that nearly sidelines his singing career." - Rolling Stone
