  Super Fury Animals Super Furry Animals in Cardiff  
     
 
  Magnum recently had the pleasure of supplying the PA system for 3 dates at the same venue for one of Wales’s greatest exports: The Super Furry Animals. Sub 29 at Cardiff’s Millennium Plaza was the ideal venue for what was initially going to be a one-off warm-up gig before the band embarked on their hectic festival season dates. Ticket demand quickly transformed the date to two and later three nights, a great indication of Cardiff’s demand for the band and their unique and electrifying live performances.
