SPV will release a new double live CD from MAGNUM, entitled "Wings Of Heaven Live" on the following dates:Germany: February 22, 2008
Rest of Europe: February 25, 2008
USA: April 8, 2008 It has been almost 20 years since the British melodic rock act MAGNUM brought out one of the best and most successful recordings of their career: "Wings Of Heaven" entered the British charts at No. 2 and included three successful single releases. A milestone in the history of a band who decided to perform and re-record the full album as part of their tour of Britain in autumn 2007. CD 1 consists of a cross-section of the band's career, featuring classics such as "How Far Jerusalem", "Vigilante", "Kingdom Of Madness" and "All England's Eyes", plus tracks from their current studio release, "Princess Alice & The Broken Arrow", such as "When We Were Younger", "Dragons Are Real", "Out Of The Shadows" and "Like Brothers We Stand". CD 2 includes haunting live versions of the full "Wings Of Heaven" opus, starting with the opener, "Days Of No Trust" and closing with the furioso finale, "Don't Wake The Lion". The show's final number was MAGNUM's legendary "Sacred Hour" from their 1982 classic, "Chase The Dragon". "Wings Of Heaven Live" was recorded between 10 and 18 November 2007 in Glasgow, Cambridge, Birmingham and London, among other cities. The album was produced by guitarist Tony Clarkin. The lineup, the same as featured on "Princess Alice & The Broken Arrow", was one of the strongest in MAGNUM's history, consisting of Clarkin and his experienced colleagues, Bob Catley (vocals), Mark Stanway (keyboards) and Al Barrow (bass), plus new addition Jimmy Copley (drums).
