Iron Maiden's Dickinson Lambasts Pot Smoker At Gig
Published May 26, 2008While it's easy for some of us to get metalheads mixed up with potheads, it's best to get your facts or assumptions straight when it comes to Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson. Last week during a gig at San Antonio's Verizon Wireless on the Somewhere Back In Time - World Tour 08, the pint-sized, airplane pilot/lead singer showed his disgust for a fan lighting up a fat one in the crowd.
"Would you please put that fucking shit out? My lungs are trying to work up here, dude," Dickinson, a known anti-drug campaigner, yelled at the smoker.
Any pot smokers in Canada looking to get ridiculed by the front-man can do so when the band touch down in Vancouver for a string of Canadian dates in June that include:
6/3 Vancouver BC, Pacific Coliseum
6/5 Calgary AB, Saddledome
6/6 Edmonton AB, Rexall Place
6/8 Regina SK, Brandt Centre
6/9 Winnipeg MB, MTS Centre
6/21 Montreal QC, Parc Jean-Drapeau
