There are still some tickets left for the band’s FINAL SHOW at the Hammersmith Apollo on 11th July, after the hasty change of venue due to the previous venue selling out in 46 hours!
Thunder decided that rather than take out a single support band for their final fling, they would invite 4 bands to be their very special guests on the dates. All the bands are friends of the band or have worked with Thunder in the past, so there could be some wild nights on the road…..and maybe even on the stage!
Support bands for the shows are as follows:
|(Glasgow & Manchester)|
|(Sheffield & Cambridge) – recently reformed|
The Quireboys –
|(Newcastle & Nottingham)|
The Electric Boys –
|(Wolverhampton & London) – recently reformed|
”We’ve played loads of fantastic shows over the last 20 years, but we want all the shows between now and when we go to be the best we’ve ever done. We really hope you’ll want to be there to help us to do that. And Thanks for everything” – Thunder
Thunder are (for the next 4 months): Danny Bowes – vocals; Luke Morley – guitars & vocals; Ben Matthews – guitar & keyboards; Chris Childs – bass and Harry James – drums.

Thunder formed in 1989, releasing their debut album Backstreet Symphony in 1990, which went Gold, as did their follow-up Laughing on Judgement Day, which peaked at number 2 in the UK album charts. Their legendary appearance in 1990 at Monsters of Rock at Donington cemented their place in the hearts of British rock fans. Twenty years later, after twenty top-50 singles, 9 studio albums and a 2-year hiatus, this really is the end of the trail for Thunder.
