Bruce Dickinson Nominated for Face of Travel Award
Who needs a Grammy nomination when you are up for the World Travel Awards’ Face of Travel honor? Focus on Travel News reports that tireless and multi-talented Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson has been nominated for, and is favored to win, the Face of Travel trophy. Dickinson — who is also a commercial pilot in his spare time and serves as the marketing manager for Astraeus Airlines — is largely celebrated as one of the best frontman in metal and is regarded as a consummate, show-stopping performer. So if he wins, this is just another feather in his crowded cap.
The award recognizes the celebrities that have done the most for the travel and tourism industry in the past year. Dickinson’s competition is stiff, though. He’s facing fellow nominees like California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, international soccer star David Beckham and Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey. The winner will be announced on Sunday in London.
Good luck Bruce. You got this one in the bag.
