Bruce Dickinson Performs At Famed Canterbury Cathedral; Video Footage Posted Online

Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson joined Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson and Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues on Saturday, December 10th for what was being billed as "Canterbury Rocks At Christmas" in the nave at the famed Canterbury Cathedral in Kent, England in support of The Canterbury Gift, which raises money for renovation work on the cathedral. Dickinson guested on two songs - "Revelations" and "Jerusalem" - and all three musicians performed the encore, "Locomotive Breath" from Tull's "Aqualung" album.

Fan-filmed video footage of Dickinson's appearance can be seen below.

Last year Ian Anderson and friends performed a Christmas show with special guest Greg Lake, and it was a resounding success, and this year, Dickinson was invited to perform along with Hayward.

Having spent over forty successful years in the rock industry, Ian Anderson is the frontman, flautist and voice of the legendary band Jethro Tull, who have some 30-odd albums to their credit and sales worldwide totaling more than 60 million. 
Considered widely as the man who introduced the flute to rock music, Anderson has also received recognition as an accomplished solo artist with four diverse albums under his belt along with acoustic and orchestral concerts throughout the world.
