Thunder announce UK tour for 2017

The mighty Thunder will embark on a new tour in March 2017 taking in cities across the UK.

Thunder new dates will be packed with many hits from the band’s 27-year history, but will also be peppered with new material from their forthcoming album, which is set for release in February 2017.

Since forming in 1989, Thunder have established themselves among the UK’s most consistent attractions, notching up over 20 top fifty singles and cultivating a well-deserved reputation as consummate live performers.

Speaking of the new tour, 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.”

He went on to joke: “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”.
