IRON MAIDEN’s BRUCE DICKINSON Tests Positive For COVID-19 After Being Fully Vaccinated

Bruce Dickinson Video Message

IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson has tested positive for COVID-19 after being vaccinated.

The 63-year-old musician, who lives London, England, revealed his positive diagnosis in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

“I thought, ‘Oh well, sh*t,'” he said. “I was kind of sneezing a bit. For a couple of days, I felt a bit groggy, kind of like the flu, and that was it,” he said. “And I’m 63 years old. I’ve pretty much got no doubt that had I not had the vaccine, I could be in serious trouble.”

Bruce went on to say that he doesn’t personally believe that fans attending concerts should be required to get vaccinated, calling it “a personal choice,” However, he said that he hopes everyone will get the shot. “Personally, I think people are just very badly advised if they don’t go and get themselves double jabbed as quickly as possible, not for the reasons of going into concerts, but for their own health,” he said.

“Having said that, even if you’ve had a double jab, you can still get COVID, and therefore you can spread it to other people who might not have been vaccinated and they might get very sick and die. Now you cannot legislate against mortality. There are many things in this world that kill people and they’re not illegal but are unfortunate. Cancer kills a lot of people. Heart attacks kill a lot of people. Obesity kills a lot of people. Malaria kills a sh*tload of people every year… So at some point, we have to just go, ‘We’re probably going to have to live with this. And if we’re going to live with it, then you have your vaccination.'”

Dickinson previously postponed the last two dates of his U.K. spoken-word tour because a member of his immediate household contracted the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

IRON MAIDEN will release their 17th studio album, Senjutsu, via Parlophone Records on September 3rd. You can pre-order album on Amazon here.
