Concert Notes

Two concerts (gigs I think the kids call them) in two days earlier this month. First off was the aging rockers Magnum at the Muni in Pontypridd. Really good concert just like the old days, right down to the wind machine blowing Bob Catley’s hair, albeit a bit greying nowadays.

As EyeJay notes, a big chunk of the show was focused on the last few albums (note to self, will have to buy the new one), but some of the classics were there too.

I reckon it was over 25 years ago when I first saw Magnum (at the Student Union in Cardiff, I think), and it’s always a great show. There’s another review here.

A quick note about Liberty Lies, the support act from the Black Country. The lead singer was MeatLoaf-lite, but they knocked out a useful set. Nowadays it seems that word of mouth and gigging is how bands get found out about. Supporting Magnum can't hurt either.
