Man who doesn’t know all the words spotted in crowd at Iron Maiden concert

author avatar by 6 years ago

Iron Maiden fans have been left confused and unhappy by the presence of a man who didn’t know every word to every song at one of the band’s shows.

The man, who remains unidentified, was understood to have been ‘smiling and tapping one foot’ during the show but displayed no inclination to sing along – which was later revealed to be because he couldn’t.

”It really shook me,” said fan Simon Williams, 38.

“Bruce launched into The Trooper and I turned to the guy next to me to share that joyous, transcendent moment of singing along with the crowd… and the guy just looked at me with a grin and shook his head and shrugged his shoulders as if to say he didn’t know the words.

”I mean, what the fuck? What the ACTUAL fuck!?”

”I thought maybe he didn’t speak English, but no – I heard him ordering a pint at the bar later. He just… didn’t know the words. Any of them. He couldn’t even sing along to Fear of the Dark, which is pretty much the easiest thing in the entire world.

“Christ, the poor guy. I can’t imagine what it must be like to suffer like that.

“It must be like having a part of the brain missing – knowing that there’s something missing from your life, but being completely unable to articulate what.”

Concerned fans have set up a GoFundMe campaign to fund the purchase of a full set of albums so the man doesn’t have to suffer in silence in future.
