Bruce Dickinson surprised fans yesterday (12th) for the early arrivals at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, spotted as the guest selling tickets at the box office himself. The tickets were for two special “not so secret” shows for Dickinson’s solo band, The House Band of Hell, at the venue yesterday and today (13th). The show later kicked off, with fan-filmed videos of the event starting to flood on YouTube. We found a few, you can watch below:

The events are used as a rehearsal for Dickinson and his solo band before their tour kicks off next week (see dates
here). The shows support the Iron Maiden vocalist’s new solo album, The Mandrake Project, which released in March (read our review here).
