With Thunder marking three incredible decades as one of Britain’s finest rock acts, AEG Presents, Live Nation & Orchard Live are delighted to announce that the band will undertake a 5 date Arena tour in November 2020. These will be the first fully electric, full-on Thunder headline rock shows in the UK since 2017.
Special guests on all shows will be Ugly Kid Joe, with a different opening band for each arena, especially chosen by Thunder.
Thunder have proved time and time again that they have the hits, the chops and the flair to blow the roof off, and these 5 shows will be no exception. Thunder celebrated thirty years at the top of the tree at the end of September, with the release of ‘The Greatest Hits’ album through BMG.
Frontman Danny Bowes said “After Please Remain Seated and The Greatest Hits releases this year, work on the next studio album is already under way. We’ll get it out before these 5 shows. I’m chuffed to report that it’s all new tunes, and it’s all ROCK. The setlist will be a mix of the new album and fan favourites, so it’s going to be a bit of a job working out which tunes we’ll play. I think I’ll leave it to Luke to sort that one out!”.
'90s rock band with a distinct '70s British hard rock sound. Thunder picked up the mantle discarded by the likes of Led Zeppelin, Free and AC/DC playing honest bluesy metal with a twin-guitar assault and solid riffs and rhythms.
