THUNDER ANNOUNCE XMAS SHOW 2011 – DANNY BOWES AND BEN MATTHEWS  ANNOUNCE AN EVENING WITH DANNY & BEN

THUNDER ANNOUNCE XMAS SHOW 2011 – DANNY BOWES AND BEN MATTHEWS ANNOUNCE AN EVENING WITH DANNY & BEN

thunder2Following their High Voltage triumph this summer, Thunder have decided to play a Christmas show at Rock City, Nottingham, on 21st December.  This will be the first Thunder Xmas show since 2008. 

The show will be a two set mix of acoustic and full-on electric sets, featuring Thunder songs and covers, with special guests and festive fun.

Tickets are priced at £27.50 (subject to booking fee) and go on sale on Friday 16th September at 9.00am from the box office ( 0845 413 4444) in person at the venue or from:www.alt-tickets.co.uk

The show will be recorded, and the ticket price includes a CD of the highlights. There will also be a second slightly different version, which will be sold exclusively via the Thunder Shop.   There are no plans for any other shows in 2012.

DannyBenSMDanny Bowes & Ben Matthews will play 8 intimate sit down shows in January 2012. Each “Evening With Danny & Ben” will be a relaxed mix of stripped down Thunder tunes & their favourite cover versions, plus stories from their combined 760 years in the music business.  The shows will be seated, and those who attend will be “actively encouraged” to join in.  Exact details are top secret at this time.

There will be no support band, but there will be 2 sets each night, with a short interval in the middle. 

Danny says: “Ben and I visited a secondary school a little while ago to give a talk to a load of 15 year old music students. Having agreed to do it, we were a bit apprehensive, and thought it might be a bit dull for them, having 2 old gits spouting on about the music business and touring etc, but we were wrong, they loved it. That started us thinking, always dangerous, the next thing we were doing some shows. Lord help us all….”

Ben says: “I’ve always enjoyed doing interviews with Danny, I didn’t get the opportunity that often but when we did it was always a lot of fun, that’s when I could get a word in edgeways!  We seem to have the knack of making each other laugh, so we thought it would be a great idea to see if we could do the same in front of an audience. If all else fails we’ll play them a song or two and do a runner…”
