IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson recently yelled at a fan, calling him a “Greek cunt” and a “fucking cocksucker” for lighting a flare during the band’s concert Saturday night (July 16) in Athens, Greece.
The incident occurred as IRON MAIDEN began playing “The Number Of The Beast”, at the Olympic Stadium. Immediately, Bruce noticed the fan lighting the flare and began to slam the concert-goer., apparently concerned that the smoke from the flare would negatively affect his singing voice.
“The cunt with the fucking flare, I’ve gotta sing up here,” Bruce shouted. “You fucking cocksucker. You Greek cunt. All right. I’ve gotta fucking sing. All right. Fuck you.”
As IRON MAIDEN continued playing the opening riff of “The Number Of The Beast“, he apparently briefly left the stage in hopes that the smoke would clear up. However, when Dickinson eventually resumed singing the song, he was notably off time and not in sync with the rest of the group. You can watch the fasn-filmed footage below.
IRON MAIDEN is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, “Senjutsu“, which came out last September.
