The soloist of the Iron Maiden band, Sarajevo’s citizen of honor
On the list of trophies he has received during the lifetime, the Iron Maiden soloist has added another one: Sarajevo’s citizen of honour. At a ceremony held specifically for this occasion Bruce Dickinson City Hall honored the musician who had entered the history of this city that in 1994 had held a concert in this city. While fighter jets crossed over the city, which was heavily bombed, he held a concert where he expressed support for the city and for independence. The trophy was given to you precisely in the municipal building which is completely rebuilt today.April 6 is the day of Sarajevo and relates to 1945 when the city was released in World War II. This date marks an important milestone from the Bosnian-Bosnian war launched in 1992. This war resulted in 13,000 people dead and involved the UN forces. Dickinson made a stroll in the city’s historic center and gave autographs to the attendees. He sang in this city in 1994 with the Skunkworks group, during the three-and-a-half war. That concert turned into a documentary titled “Scream for Me Sarajevo”. The documentary came to the cinema in 2018. According to this documentary, this concert was brought by a military member of the UN peace force to entertain teenagers and forget about the conflict. This was one of the concerts that went into history with David Hasselhoff’s concert in the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
