IRON MAIDEN Singer Goes 'Trainspotting'

October 18, 2004

According to a posting on the IRON MAIDEN fan site, MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson will be a special guest of the "Trainspotting" show on the U.K. TV channel Discovery Home and Leisure on Friday, October 22.

A brief description of the show reads as follows: "Presenter Mark Collins teams up with heavy metal legend and IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinso on a steam train driving day at the Bluebell Railway."

The channel is available on Sky Digital, cable or broadband.

As previously reported, Dickinson will be hosting a five-part documentary series about airplanes, tentatively titled "Flying Heavy Metal", that is being produced by the U.K.-based Ricochet production company.

The upcoming series is being described as follows: "IRON MAIDEN rock legend and professional pilot Bruce Dickinson charts the evolution of the passenger aeroplane, the documentary is made for Discovery Channel and will be a series of five 30-minute features."

The production gives a winter 2005 timeframe, but Eric Fetter — who penned an article about the series for the The Herald — kindly told that "as far as an air date in Europe, Bruce said he expects it to be on there in February. It may also show on the Discovery Channel [in the U.S.], but that's still up in the air."
