Meanwhile, Bruce Dickinson was recently given the all-clear after cancer treatment. He was diagnosed just before Christmas after a small tumour was found at the back of his tongue. Dickinson underwent a seven-week course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment for cancer.
In a statement, Dickinson said: “I would like to thank the fantastic medical team who have been treating me for the last few months, resulting in this amazing outcome. It’s been tough on my family and, in many ways, it was harder for them than me.”
Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood said Dickinson’s recovery meant the band would be unable to play any shows until next year. Smallwood said: “Although Bruce is naturally eager to resume Maiden activities, it will take a while before he is completely back to full strength, as we explained previously. Because of this, the band will not be touring or playing any shows until next year. We know our fans will understand the situation and, like us, would prefer to wait until Bruce is back to his usual indefatigable levels of fitness before going out on the road.”
