An Evening With Bruce Dickinson - The Iron Maiden Singer
Wed 4th August 07:00 PM
Bruce Dickinson is considered one of the world’s most storied musicians. Split into two parts, the first section of the show sees Bruce taking a humorous and often satirical look at the world from his own very personal perspective. The final section of the evening is devoted entirely to a Q&A session, with the opportunity to pose questions on any subject whatsoever.
