Former Iron Maiden singer Paul Di'Anno has been released from jail after serving only 2 months of a 9 month sentence, having committed benefit fraud in the UK. He was jailed in March after being caught cheating the state out of 45,000 ($72,000) of public money. According to Spinner, Di'Anno claimed he couldn't work due to a stage-related injury, but videos of the singer on a worldwide tour acted as evidence that he was committing fraud. Now he has seen an early release, and is already planning a "Running Free Again" tour. Speaking to Metal Underground, Di'Anno said "Back home again, and looking forward to 'Running Free Again,' and seeing you all in a few weeks. Thanks for all the Birthday wishes too. Also, relieved to say, I managed not to drop the soap!" The singer was kicked out of Iron Maiden in the early 1980s, before the group went on to see wider acclaim with new frontman Bruce Dickinson. Di'Anno has gone on to perform with solo projects which occasionally tour Europe, and with local bands near his home in Wiltshire, England.
