Magenta live review - The Globe, Cardiff
Venue: The Globe, Cardiff
Magenta return to Welsh soil for an almost home-coming gig in Cardiff.
Tina Booth’s just had chips. She’s sorry to take to the stage in jeans and a casual top – she did bring a dress but forgot to shave her legs. The singer also apologises for Chris Fry’s horrendous red shirt. And quite right, it is a bastard of a shirt! We’re all friends here though – the guitarist’s in on the joke, as is Rob Reed, who can barely fit his in-ear monitor for giggling. Magenta haven’t played a note yet and the 200-strong crowd are laughing and cheering, their relaxed demeanour drawing us all in.
