[b]Iron Maiden[/b] frontman [b]Bruce Dickinson[/b] has attacked the price of gig ticket, suggesting fans are paying too much.

The singer criticised bands who charge extortionate prices for gig tickets, insisting they only have themselves to blame for half-empty arenas.

“It’s a massive commitment to come and see a band,” he told Sky News. “They deserve not just a great show, but reasonable ticket prices. It’s just not right, you know – it’s a rock ‘n’ roll show, it’s not a cash cow.”

[b]Iron Maiden[/b] are set to headline the closing night at this year’s Sonisphere Festival in [b]Knebworth[/b] on Sunday (August 1).
