Paul Di'Anno Announces Retirement
Former Iron Maiden singer Paul Di'Anno announced retirement from the music world after wrapping up his upcoming set of tour dates. As Antimusic reports, Di'Anno made his decision crystal clear, saying, "For anyone who doesn't already know - I am retiring." The vocalist added, "But, there are still have a bunch of shows to do, that could not physically be placed into 2013 - even though I was contracted to do them during that period. So there's those shows (here and there) mostly in far off places, that I'll keep my word to perform at. In the mean time - here are the 11 remaining shows for this year (making a total of 101 shows in 2013). Hope to see many of you metal heads at some of them." Di'Anno was a member of Iron Maiden from 1978 to 1981, a period during which he delivered vocals on the band's self-titled 1980 debut and 1981 sophomore effort "Killers." The singer gained a fair amount of infamy through outbursts toward former bandmates and the current Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson. Check out his upcoming tour dates below.
