Magnum -- Malmö, SWE -- September 25th, 2009
Cry to yourself
Take me to the edge
Brand new morning
The moon king
When we were younger
No one knows his name
Dragons are real
Face in the crowd
We all run
Les morts dansant
All my bridges
Shame for the bad boy
All England´s eyes
Kingdom of madness
Bob Catley was close to a collapse during the last songs before the encore, due to excessive heat. This looked really bad, especially during Vigilante where I thought "Oh my god he´s going to faint!". This led the band to cut the set, the first encore would have been Don´t wake the lion according to the setlist but instead they just ripped through a perfunctory version of Kingdom and then quickly left.
Shame for the bad boy was a gem, from the Hard Rain-album in the mid-90´s and it had never been aired live before. Nice!
All in all a good gig, pretty weird setlist excluding such hits has How far Jerusalem, Sacred hour and The spirit, but I´ve seen those songs so many times I´d really rather have this set with many new songs and the utterly astounding Hard Rain-track.
Opening act was swedish M.ILL.ION., but I wouldn´t have seen them live one more time even if they paid me.
Magnum are a fantastic and incredibly underrated band. I'd love for them to do a US tour. Huge shame Don't Wake the lion was cut though, that's an incredible song.
