Iron Maiden have announced that vocalist Bruce Dickinson has been given the all clear from cancer following a seven-week course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment.

Bruce was first diagnosed back in February when a cancerous growth was found on the back of his tongue.

In his most recent statement Bruce Dickinson said  “I would like to thank the fantastic medical team who have been treating me for the last few months, resulting in this amazing outcome. It’s been tough on my family and in many ways it was harder for them than me. I’d also like to send a heartfelt thanks to all our fans for their kind words and thoughts. I’m a firm believer in trying to maintain a positive attitude, and the encouragement from the global Maiden family meant a great deal to me. Right now, I’m feeling extremely motivated and can’t wait to get back to business as usual, as soon as I can!”

Awesome news Bruce – we wish you all the best!
