Magnum - Live In Concert
Legendary British hard rock band Magnum will embark on a major European tour for December 2020, with headline shows in London, Cambridge, and their hometown Birmingham. The tour comes alongside the announcement of their newest studio album, scheduled for release in early 2020. The band formed in Birmingham in 1972, had notable successes in their early years, including 1982 album ‘Chasing the Dragon’ which spawned live favourites ‘ Soldier of The Line’, ‘Sacred Hour’ and ‘The Spirit’.Magnum split in 1995, however reformed with founding members and chief-songwriters Guitarist Tony Clarkin and Vocalist Bob Catley. Going on to release 7 albums since, including 2014’s ‘Escape from the Shadow Garden’ which reached number 2 in the UK Rock & Metal Chart, as well as number 4 in the UK Indie Charts.
On their latest album, Clarkin and Magnum’s other original member, vocalist Bob Catley, prove all over again just how perfectly this established system works. The line-up, consisting of Clarkin, Catley, keyboardist Rick Benton, drummer Lee Morris, plus their latest addition, bassist Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69, Place Vendome, Unisonic, among others), have recorded eleven new songs for the new album, all of which feature the traditional strengths of the British act while continuing to live up to the band’s ambition to explore a more rock-oriented direction.
