REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA
British rock band Magnum finally returned to Finland for the first time in 25 years. The band released its 18’Th studio album ESCAPE FROM THE SHADOW GARDEN on last month and started the “Shadow Garden” tour now from Helsinki. Although the sales numbers are quite different compared to the 80’s the album has been a great success. Album reviews have been very positive all along the line and it’s been charting highly across the Europe including the band highest rank in the UK album chart since 1992’s SLEEPWALKING. While it is true that times have changed a lot since 1989, the band still managed to attract more than 350 people, which is not all that bad on Monday night in Helsinki. It’s time to “Rockin’ Chair” again!
