Bruce Dickinson Announces U.S. Book Tour For “What Does This Button Do?”

Iron Maiden‘s Bruce Dickinson will be releasing his long awaited memoir, “What Does This Button Do?,” on October 19th via HarperNonFiction, and it’s going to be quite the read. Here’s the official synopsis: “In “What Does This Button Do?”, Bruce (a man who famously never gives interviews about his personal life) shares, for the first time, the most fascinating recollections, including his thirty years with Iron Maiden, the early days, his childhood within the eccentric British school system, going solo, realising his dream of flying jumbo jets and his recent battle with tongue cancer. Dickinson is so much more than the frontman of one of the biggest bands on the planet. A rock icon, a true renaissance man, Bruce has been, and remains, a man of legend.

To celebrate its release, the legend has announced a U.S. book tour, where he will talk about writing the memoir, read excerpts, answer fans questions, and more. Continue reading
