Kingdom of Madness: Classic Magnum
Members of MAGNUM’s classic-era line-ups reunite for a celebration of the band’s much loved back catalogue covering the period 1978-94. 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 and gained a reputation as one of the hardest-working bands on the touring circuit, delighting audiences with concerts that were always captivating 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 headline appearances at Birmingham NEC and Wembley Arena, as well as appearances at major festivals.
Kingdom of Madness features Mark Stanway, Richard Bailey, Micky Barker, Laurence Archer and Mo Birch – all of whom have toured and / or recorded with Magnum – together with legendary bassist Neil Murray and acclaimed vocalist Chris Ousey – establishing a pedigree line-up of world class musicians. Kingdom of Madness will celebrate the legacy of Magnum’s classic period.
“There is an extensive catalogue of great songs from the classic years of Magnum which have not been performed on stage in many years and which audiences have constantly requested” says Mark Stanway, keyboard player with Magnum for 36 years.“Having said that, I should state that we by no means consider ourselves a Magnum “tribute” – how can it be when five of the members have a shared legacy with the band? I’m delighted to be working with Richard, Micky, Laurence and Mo again and in Neil and Chris we have two musicians with their own distinct history who will obviously bring their personal musical identity to the project. In addition, with our focus being firmly on the music from the earlier period, we do not perceive ourselves as being in “competition” with the current Magnum. There is more than enough music to keep both bands busy – a fitting testament to the song-writing of Tony Clarkin.

Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash
Fresh from 2017/18 shows which have featured Wishbone Ash’s seminal albums Argus, There’s the Rub and Wishbone Ash in their entirety, Martin Turner and his band return to the concert stages in Spring 2019 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash and perform another classic album – 1976’s New England.
Released in October 1976 and featuring the celebrated Wishbone Ash “Mark 2” line-up of Martin Turner, Steve Upton, Andy Powell and guitarist Laurie Wisefield (who had joined Wishbone Ash in 1974 replacing original member Ted Turner), New England marked a return to form for Wishbone Ash after the relatively disappointing response to its predecessor Locked In. Recorded using mobile equipment, New England was written and recorded in the loose environment of a basement rehearsal facility set up at Martin Turner’s Connecticut home, resulting in an album that was brimming with live energy. With a mix of powerful rock numbers such as “Runaway” and “Mother of Pearl”, alongside melodic cuts like “Lorelei” and “You Rescue Me”, the album was an instant crowd-pleaser. The band’s twin-guitar hallmark had never sounded so vibrant as on the album’s instrumental showcase “Outward Bound” and New England highlighted all that was great about this much-loved band.
Martin Turner’s Spring 2019 shows will mark the very first time New England has been performed in its entirety on stage and this tour is an event that no Wishbone Ash aficionado will want to miss.
