ex-Black Sabbath singer, Tony Martin, joins Kingdom Of Madness, the band featuring ex-Magnum members Mark Stanway, Micky Barker, Richard Bailey – who play the English band’s 1978-1994 material for their upcoming UK tour.
“We feel incredibly honored to have our good friend Tony Martin on board for these dates,” says Stanway. “We are confident our audiences will enjoy hearing Tony’s distinctive vocal style within the context of an evening of classic Magnum songs and from rehearsals to date it has become clear that this promises to be a highly exciting collaboration.
“Since the inception of Kingdom Of Madness in 2018, we have been blessed to have had several top drawer musicians join the nucleus of Micky, Richard, Mo and myself. Working with musicians of such a high caliber requires a certain amount of flexibility, of course, since players of this quality are very much in demand for other projects and so changes are somewhat inevitable from time to time. However, I consider myself truly fortunate to have such a rich pool of talent to draw from, established through friendships forged and maintained over the past five decades in music. While no one can predict the future, what we can assure our audiences of is an ongoing commitment to quality.”
Martin adds: “Thank you for the warm welcome, I’m really looking forward to hanging out with a bunch of loonies in a kingdom of madness! … Just kidding… Great to be able to help friends out and give another life to some well-loved songs. See you all out there.”
