I missed Magnum on their last tour so was eager to see them on this one. I know some people that have been to multiple gigs and even though it’s the same set list each night I would probably so the same for this band if I didn’t have other commitments.
Their resurgence in this decade has produced some nice albums and Into the Valley of the Moonking sits comfortably within their output. It’s a good job I’ve got it and like it as 40% of the songs played were from it and a few more from other recent albums.
The sound for the 5 guys was good with only the bass being not as noticeable as the others. It was good to see ex-Thunder drummer Harry James with them.
After an hour they dipped into the classics starting with Les Morts Dansant and continuing with All England´s Eyes and Vigilante. The encore started off slow with the beginning of Don´t WakeThe Lion but it’s a 10 minute piece which built nicely before Kingdom Of Madness ended over 90 minutes of classic rock excellence. Tony Clarkin & Bob Catley are now in their 60s and can still perform well. I especially like Bobs vocals which at this moment I can’t compare to any one else’s. Magnum gives you a nice warm feeling. Brilliant :)
Then I went to a busy work (while Kel slept alone at mine for the first time ever)), slept, cinema and back here for feeding and internet catch up :)
