Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson Slams Ticket Prices
August 2, 2010
Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson has slammed ticket agencies for charging fans so much money to attend concerts.
Dickinson, whose band release their new album 'The Final Frontier' on August 16, says tha tickets should be "reasonable".
"It's a massive commitment to come and see a band," the singer 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."
However, it has been claimed that Dickinson could be accused of hypocrisy with tickets to see Iron Maiden costing as much as £80 in parts of Europe. Iron Maiden concerts in Spain and Italy range from £50 to £60 while tickets to the band's Aug. 11th concert in Bergen, Norway currently cost £80 each.
