You might be allowed to bring your cell phone with you at a concert, but don’t let yourself get caught texting with it. At a concert in Indiana last week, Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson called out a fan in no subtle terms who had apparently been texting for much of the night.
From the Sault Star:
The rockers were performing at the Klipsch Music Center in Indianapolis when Dickinson spotted an audience member texting throughout much of the band’s set and called him out for his rude behaviour.
Pausing midway through the track Wasted Years, he shouted, “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 w–ker!”
The crowd roared with approval and the 53-year-old then carried on with the show.
Have you ever been annoyed by fans glued to their phones?
As for Iron Maiden, they continue their Maiden England North American tour with gigs in Western Canada this week before heading along the American West Coast to close out their concert dates. We’ve got tickets to all of Iron Maiden’s remaining gigs; don’t miss out!
