Bruce Dickinson announces two new guitarists for his solo band

Author Flavia Andrade - 16.2.2024

Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson has announced two new guitarists for his solo touring band.

Guitarist, songwriter and producer Philip Näslund and session and touring guitarist Chris Declercq will accompany Dave Moreno (drums), Mistheria (keyboards) and Tanya O’Callaghan (bass). Bruce‘s long-term co-writer and producer Roy “Z” Ramirez will not be part of the touring lineup.

Dickinson shared:

Sadly, and with regret, guitarist and producer Roy Z will no longer join the band on tour due to some personal commitments. He will remain in L.A. to work on some remixing and remastering of the catalogue. We all know the show must go on though, and this project is too important to everyone to not be the very best it can be. I’m gutted about Roy because he assembled most of the album and touring band, introducing Mistheria and Dave Moreno to the project and mentoring guitarist Chris Declerq. I’m so excited about what both Philip and Chris will bring on stage together and now my only ambition is to grab a little piece of the audiences’ hearts every night.

Their first live performance will take place at The Observatory in Orange County, California on April 15, with tickets going on sale to the general public at on February 20 at 10:00a.m. PST.

Dickinson adds:

We’re not afraid of doing some growing up in public, so this show will be as close to a rehearsal as you can get. It’s exciting to think what these musicians can do, and will do, when there are over one thousand fans in the room!
