Iron Maiden have provided an update on the health of vocalist Bruce Dickinson.
Earlier this year the band announced the singer had completed treatment for a small cancerous tumour at the back of his tongue. The band have stated he is on course for a full recovery but this won’t be confirmed until Dickinson has an MRI can in May.
The band made the following statemet:
“Over the last few days, Bruce has been to see his specialists and following examinations, including visual, we’re delighted to update everyone that the situation remains extremely optimistic for a full recovery. We will still not have final confirmation that the cancer has been completely eradicated until Bruce can have an MRI scan in May, as previously advised in Rod’s recent message to the fans on this site, and the period to full recovery will continue for a few months yet.
Typically Bruce’s immediate reaction to the specialists’ good news was to be as active as feasibly possible, taking in a couple of visits to the Maiden office, one to the Hybrid Air Vehicle hangar to see latest progress, and a brief trip to his local pub, much to the surprise and delight of all his friends there!
We just wanted to share this latest piece of good news with all Maiden’s fans and, as usual, we’ll continue to keep you all updated officially on Bruce’s progress through ironmaiden.com”
