At IRON MAIDEN's sold-out show at Globen in Stockholm, Sweden earlier tonight (November 14),singer Bruce Dickinson slammed MTV Europe for refusing to air the band's new video for the song "Rainmaker".
"I see a lot of faces here in the front who are not even half my age," Dickinson told the crowd. "That's great. We just got some bad news. Not that I care about MTV, but they told us that they won't show the 'Rainmaker' video because they say that our audience is too old for MTV."
IRON MAIDEN's gig in Stockholm was the group's second since they were forced to cancel three shows on their European tour in order to allow Dickinson time to recover from a case of the flu and severe laryngitis.
Dickinson's voice was in excellent shape throughout the concert, and the "air-raid siren" — as Bruce is affectionately known — was able to reach all the high notes, according to several attendees.
MAIDEN's next gig will take place Saturday night (Nov. 15) at Scandinavium in Gothenburg, Sweden.
