AFTER a series of stunning festival performances legendary prog rockers Magnum are set to release their new album 'Lost On The Road To Eternity' in six months and will tour it in 2018 with a Belfast show on March 1st at Limelight1.
They played Belfast and Dublin on their last tour in what was a triumphant return to these shores, comfortable that they had not only hits for fans of their 80s albums, but new tunes that stood up well with the singalong songs such as 'Les Morts Dansant' or 'Vigilante'.
Indeed when Belfastmetalheads caught them at Ramblin Man Fair they may have focussed more on the hits - it was a festival set after all - the smattering of more recent songs didn't deter the audience one bit.
With this headline show in the Limelight one can expect a more fleshed out set as a mature band, comfortable as elder statesmen of the scene, able to introduce new songs and having no problem milking 'How Far Jerusalem' or 'Just Like An Arrow' in an appropriate manner.
'Sacred Blood, Divine Lies' was an outstanding album with many subtle under-currents amidst the pomp - all of which bodes well for the release of 'Lost On The Road To Eternity' and the Belfast March show.
