Classic-era members continue to keep “The Spirit” of Magnum alive, performing music from the band’s celebrated 1978-94 period

One of the UK’s finest exponents of melodic rock music, Magnum achieved high album and singles chart positions and gained a reputation as one of the UK most captivating live bands.

While Magnum may no longer be performing, aficionados of this much-loved band can continue to enjoy their acclaimed catalogue of music, performed by core musicians from the band’s classic periods.

Long standing Magnum keyboard player Mark Stanway (1980-2016) is Joined in Kingdom of Madness by fellow Magnum members Micky Barker (drums, 1985-95) and Richard Bailey (keyboards/flute/guitar, 1975-80), as well as Mo Birch (vocals/percussion, Magnum live and studio appearances). For their 2024/25 shows, they are joined by bassist Brian Bad hams, vocalist Chris Dando, and guitarist Alan Bell.

“The best way to respect the band’s legacy and to “keep the night light burning” is to ensure that this fine catalogue of songs continues to be played and heard.” says Mark Stanway, keyboard player with Magnum for 36 years.

The LEGACY tour will dig deep into the Magnum back catalogue: “We’ve put a lot of time into refreshing our set list for this tour”, says Stanway. “Certain songs we’re playing from the very early days have not been played live in over forty years”

This union of classic members of one the UK’s most revered melodic rock bands has already been met with the highest acclaim from both music critics and audiences alike: The “spirit” of Magnum lives on in the Kingdom of Madness ….
