Bruce Dickinson of the mighty Iron Maiden will be taking to the stage in the Irish capital for one exclusive show as part of his promo tour for the internationally best-selling ‘What Does This Button Do” book. Be in with a chance to win pre-sale passes and a signed copy of the book exclusively with Overdrive. 

Overdrive is delighted to announce our media partnership with promoters/booking agents CWB, who today announces an exclusive special one-man speaking show with IRON MAIDEN singer, BRUCE DICKINSON in The National Stadium, Dublin, this December 13th.

Tickets are on sale from Eventbrite on Friday, May 31st at 9 am, priced at €35 (ex booking fee). 14+ show.

Bruce Dickinson is considered one of the world’s most storied musicians. Aside from decades spent delivering high-octane performances with his larger-than-life persona in IRON MAIDEN, Bruce has lived an extraordinary off-stage existence too.

A true polymath, Bruce is or has been, an airline pilot and captain, an aviation entrepreneur, a beer brewer, motivational speaker, film scriptwriter, twice-published novelist and best-selling author, radio presenter, a TV actor and international fencer.

The 2017 publication of his New York Times & UK Times Best-Seller autobiography What Does This Button Do? saw Bruce promoting the book by undertaking a small number of readings and Q&A in theatres around the UK.

What Does This Button Do? – An Evening With Bruce Dickinson has since evolved into a full-blown one-man show, more akin to a stand-up comedian’s routine, lasting well over two hours and touring the globe to critical acclaim including a sold-out performance last summer at the largest arts festival in the world, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Split into two parts, the first half of the show sees Bruce taking a humorous, often satirical look back at his colourful, roller-coaster life. Delivering compelling tales in his uniquely anarchic style and punctuated with photographs, he recounts anecdotes not just from the book, but others deemed either too risqué or otherwise to have made the final edit…..!

The second half of the evening is devoted entirely to a Q&A session, where fans’ quirky, frank and often completely leftfield questions are tackled with completely improvised – and invariably quick-witted – responses by Bruce, all of which makes for a highly entertaining and enjoyable night out.
