We’ve got some music news for you today folks with the tour dates for Thunder when they will be doing a UK tour in March 2017.
The March dates have been hotly anticipated by fans of the band and there is no doubt that the gigs will be packed with many of their thunderous hits from the band’s career, there will also be tracks from their 2015 Top Ten hit album ‘Wonder Days‘, which was described by Classic Rock as, “Brilliant…a massive reminder that class is both timeless and incandescent“. A new album is due for release in February 2017, so expect tracks from that as well.
Thunder formed back in 1989, the guys from London, have established themselves among the UK’s most consistent attractions, they have had twenty Top Fifitysingles and have built up a reputation as brilliant live performers.
The band has been feted by Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose, Areosmith and David Coverdale from Whitesnake. Thunder’s first two albums, ‘Back Street Symphony‘ (1990) and “Laughing On Judgement Day’ (1992) have both been certified Gold here in the UK.
With a lineage dating back to the cream of British hard rock – Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, The Who and Deep Purple – and songwriting greats such as the Kinks, The Beatles and The Faces, the band’s sound is a timeless marriage of unforgettable melodies and sheer rock power.
Frontman Danny Bowes said, “After the arena shows in 2015 and 2016, we decided when we played the UK again, it would be great to take it back to where people live, and this is our longest UK tour for years. We’re looking forward to playing in theatres again, and of course the new album will be out by then, so I’ll be relying on the fans to learn all the words, mostly so they can remind me when I muck them up”.
