Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson Calls Out Texting ‘Wanker’ at Indianapolis Show

The lights may be bright and the bands may be putting their full effort into rocking the audience, but here’s a tip for fans especially close to the stage – the band members can still see you.

Unfortunately for one fan, he found that out the hard way when he got singled out by Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson in front of the whole audience at a recent show in Indianapolis (July 19).

As the opening notes for ‘Wasted Years’ began to play, Dickinson began to rile the audience up, but saved a little bit of the commentary for one audience member in particular, as he stated, “Oh, for f—’s sake, the man in the white shirt, you’ve been texting for the last three f—ing songs! You’re a wanker!’

If Dickinson’s math is correct, then the audience member would have been paying more attention to his phone than the band during the performances of ‘The Number of the Beast,’ ‘Phantom of the Opera,’ and ‘Run to the Hills’ as well, which is probably the time when you most want to be keeping an eye toward the stage.

Blabbermouth reports that Iron Maiden would play a few more tracks before taking a breather, and then came back for an encore that featured ‘Aces High,’ ‘The Evil That Men Do,’ and ‘Running Free.’

Iron Maiden are currently in the midst of the 34-show ‘Maiden England’ tour.
