U.K. rockers MAGNUM have vowed to play all the scheduled shows on their previously announced European tour despite coronavirus concerns.
The band issued the following statement on their social media:
“Let’s get this right out there:
“The band are NOT going to cancel the tour.
“We’ve been in rehearsal for 3 weeks now. We’re all in excellent health. Dennis has been fitting in fantastically and we’re looking forward to playing our new material for the first time to as many people as possible.
“We are contractually obliged to play every single show and we intend to do so.
“We’d urge every fan and indeed every human being around the world to not fall into the trap of allowing fear and misinformation surrounding the virus to prevent them from living their lives to the fullest.
“If a band with an average age of nearly 60 are chomping at the bit to get on a tour bus and go and play our hearts out for 3 months solid we sincerely hope that you’re not too afraid to come out and see us! Pack these venues out and show us what Magnum fans are made of.
“See you on the road.
“Bob, Tony, Rick, Lee, Dennis and all the crew”
MAGNUM‘s most recent album, The Serpent’s Rings, was released in January via Steamhammer/SPV.
