Magnum add UK dates to Euro tour

Magnum have added 15 UK shows to their planned 2016 European tour.

Bob Catley and co initially announced a run of 16 dates around mainland Europe in support of Sacred Blood “Divine” Lies, out on February 26 via Steamhammer/SPV.

Now they’ll perform across the UK in May, kicking off in Southampton on the 11th, before wrapping up the tour at Leamington’s Assembly Rooms on the 30th. They’ve also been confirmed for the Rock Of Ages festival in Seebronn, Germany, on July 31.

Guitarist Tony Clarkin wrote 25 songs for the follow-up to 2014’s Escape From The Shadow Garden but cut that number to 10 for the final tracklist, with a further three included on a bonus DVD to be bundled with the record.

Clarkin said: “It would have been too much of a shame to disregard them, particularly since our fans want to know after every release what happened to the rest of the material.”

Sacred Blood “Divine” Lies is available for pre-order in a variety of bundle packs.
