(Classic Rock) Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson wore a rugby shirt onstage in New Zealand which was sent to him by the country's world champion All Blacks rugby team.

Dickinson told the crowd at the Christchurch leg of their Book Of Souls World Tour that it was "a but of a fantasy moment" to be given an All Blacks jersey with his name on the back, before he put it on and the band played Blood Brothers.

Dickinson says: "A buddy of mine sent me this shirt with my name on it from Auckland. There's a bunch of guys that play with a funny-shaped ball. They are a bit good.

"Since They're the world champions, I guess they decided to send this to us and said, 'If you could possibly wear it during the show, it would be really cool.' Bit of a fantasy moment!" Read more here.
