Following their SOLD OUT 2018 show, members of MAGNUM’s classic-era line ups plus other top drawer rock alumni return to Newhampton Arts Centre to perform Classic Magnum songs from the celebrated 1978-94 period. This show will be filmed and recorded for future release.
One of the UK’s finest exponents of melodic rock music, Magnum achieved high album and singles chart positions in both the UK and Europe, gaining a reputation as one of the UK most captivating bands, both musically and visually. Highlights of the band’s career include regular sold-out theatre tours including a memorable five nights at London’s legendary Hammersmith Odeon performed during 1988 together with headlining Birmingham NEC and Wembley Arena, as well as appearances at major festivals.

With support from Moose Jaw
Moose Jaw are a tribute to the very best of stadium rock from the 70's to present. Concentrating much more on the very best songs by the biggest bands ever to grace the world's largest arenas, but from a more mature, AOR audience-friendly viewpoint. Think along the lines of Journey, Aerosmith, Foreigner, Whitesnake, Van Halen, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Muse… to name but a few. The set of songs Moose Jaw perform are not 3 minute, fast and furious "pop ditties". They are all epic rock songs given the full grandiose production you would expect to see in any world class stadium or arena anywhere in the world.
