Heaps of rock and metal legends are getting on with their age, with final tours in the works for a lot. But last weekend, Bruce Dickinson announced that that won't be happening for Iron Maiden.
Dickinson hosted What Does This Button Do?: An Evening With Bruce Dickinson in Bucharest, Romaniacan last weekend. Blabbermouth reported there to be an unscripted Q&A section of the show, where fans were able to ask Dickinson questions.
After a fan asked what the future of Iron Maiden would look like after the current members retire, Dickinson responded "There's always hope. 'After the current members retire,' there'll be a whole load of Iron members. We won't even have to [do] fucking holograms. You know what I mean?...
... Good idea! It'll never happen, because we're never going to fucking retire.
He went on to say, "We all feel that if we feel we're not cutting it anymore, then we'll discuss it and that will probably be the end of it,"
"But at the moment, we don't feel like that. We feel that we definitely still are pulling our weight, so to speak. We're just doing well. So far so good. I don't wanna tempt fate, but we are doing good."
Despite the members of Iron Maiden being in their sixties, we can agree they're definitely still cutting it, and we hope they continue to for a long time. 🤘
