Magma are touring the United States again soon! 


They have been updating with new shows on their Facebook page - probably the best place to check for most recent info: http://www.facebook.com/MAGMA-123777837633298/?fref=ts

Opening act looks interesting too - cellist Helen Money, not sure if she will have other players - https://helenmoney.bandcamp.com

I already have my San Francisco tickets - they sold out Slim's last year, this time they're at the Great American Music Hall.

I hope they buck the opening guest for any east coast shows. :p

I also hope there are east coast shows.

You know damned good and well they will not choose an opener lightly. I'm pretty excited to see who they chose. Just be glad they are making another trip.

Hi,
 
For anyone that has not seen a "historic" band in the history of our loved music, this is one worth seeing, as it is, for the most part, a once in a lifetime chance, specially in America.
 
I'm just astounded that they stopped in Portland once, and this time again ... downright ... WOW ... you will never really see anything so different, and so well done ... that will just leave you ...
 
This is a MUST SEE
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now you know what the inner art is all about!

Stella is must see... God what a woman.

And she could have been mine.. the one time in my life I fumbled with a women. It was like a scene out of a movie.. we met over the dessert table.. our eyes met.. she smiled.. I smiled. She felt the MickHeat.. I felt the Stellaheat..

that is where the plot from the movie diverged...  in the movie we go off the bathroom and have sex and she leaves her husband for me.  In real life I turned red as a beat, and looked over and saw Raff sitting at the table stuffing her face and I remembered.. sh*t... I'm married. That wasn't part of the movie script...
I find your lack of Bassoon disturbing.....

Will see them at the RIO Festival for their bi-annual appearance. Should be fun.

Saw them a half year ago in Chicago. Possibly the best concert I've ever been to (certainly one of them). Looking forward to seeing them again in March.

They're supposed to announce the complete tour today - I hope they come through for you! (I lived for many years near Boston)

Well, will wonders never cease, they are indeed coming to Colorado!  Looks like a Denver show has been inserted for March 22, between Seattle and Cleveland!

I remember seeing bits of their live show in the Romantic Warriors II documentary and was quite amazed, even not knowing the songs.  I have only MDK and Köhntarkösz.  If I buy a few more should I focus on the more recent releases, or something older?

Exciting!  Don't go to many shows these days, but this seems to be a can't miss.

After a marvelous show last year at the Echoplex in Los Angeles, it's Downtown at the old Regent Theatre.  Tickets secured.  See you there.

Here's a nice page with a well-written overview of Magma (something you can show your friends!), current tour dates, and links at the bottom to Seventh Records, etc.

I missed them in Seattle last year, and regarded it as missing a once in a lifetime opportunity.  Glad to see that opportunity knocking again.
