PROG rockers Magnum are to bring their hits spanning five decades to the Parr Hall this summer.

The Birmingham band will be bringing the riffs to Warrington on June 13.

Since their debut album, Kingdom of Madness, in 1978, the group was regularly in the top 40 singles and album charts in the 80s and 90s.

The 1982 album, Chase the Dragon, was the first to hit the top 20, with subsequent albums The Eleventh Hour, On a Storyteller’s Night and Vigilante all performing well.

However, it was the 1988 record, Wings of Heaven, that catapulted the band into new realms of success, reaching the top five of the UK chart and providing three top 30 singles including Days of No Trust, Start Talkin’ Love and It Must Have Been Love.

Holly Jones, from Parr Hall, said: “After a glittering career gracing such stages as Hammersmith Odeon, Reading Festival and Castle Donington, Magnum are returning to the stage to perform all their greatest hits, including a stop at Warrington’s Parr Hall.”

Magnum are playing at the Parr Hall on June 13. Book online at or call the box office on 442345.
