Great show, quite loud (take your earplugs if you have sensitive ears!) but astounding performance by these vocalists who can, it seems, conjure up and entire rock n roll band with just their own voices. Terrific stuff, great vibe, lively, engaging and very entertaining.

A show full of crowd pleasers from a team of talented and highly professional performers. Nothing to dislike and you’ll come out feeling good. Some of the arrangements didn’t work for me - I prefer the originals- but most were excellent. Recommended

Always good performances, although it feels like much the same show as the last couple of years. They've become very much the golden oldies group - which did make it a bit weird when one of them said near the end that, as the old man of the group, he'd insisted they do something from the 80s. But all but 1 song in the playlist was 80s or earlier I think!

The Magnets just continue to get better and better.. what a fantastic show. Individually, every single one of these guys is incredibly talented but as a group their performance is insane and their harmonies and blend of voices are on point. With a great mix of songs and slick moves, these guys are not to be missed!

What a fantastic high-energy show. Their performance of Bohemian Rhapsody was spot on. Brilliant

The performers were great and its a fun show for sure. One issue was that the show had very strong lights that were unpredictable that were focused at the audience. The lights were so strong it was uncomfortable and we had to close our eyes during the concert. As we left, several people around us were complaining about this too. If you'd have a problem with this, or it gives you headaches, this may not be for you.

Exceptional show. The talent of every single one of these guys is incredible and as a group their performance is amazing. Very polished, professional and a great range of songs from Legends like Prince, Stevie Wonder and The Beatles. I’ve been a long time fan but even on their first night they showed they are stronger than ever. Lots of fun, charisma and talent. Standing ovation at the end. Go, go, go!
