UK rockers Thunder have announced three arena shows for March 2015.
Special guests for the concerts come in the form of Reef, with support from Tax The Heat. The gigs will be Thunder’s first arena headline appearances in the UK, but frontman Danny Bowes has said that they are keeping the number of shows down whilst guitarist Ben Matthews concentrates on his treatment for cancer.
“We would have preferred to do more, but we weren’t sure if Ben would be physically up to it,” says Bowes. “Rather than put undue pressure on him, we decided on a ‘less is more’ approach to give him the best chance.”
“Our audience has continued to grow over the past few years, so these shows will be a coming together of our old fans and the new ones in a fantastic celebration. We’re extremely proud of the new album and we can’t wait to play the new songs alongside the classics.”
Reef frontman Gary Stringer said of the shows: “It’s our great pleasure to be heading out on the road with a standalone band like Thunder. They’ve carved out their own path without conforming to anybody else’s ideals. We can’t wait to get on stage with them next year and have a huge party. Let the good times roll!”
Thunder will play:
Mar 12th: First Direct Arena, Leeds
Mar 13th: National Indoor Arena, Birmingham
Mar 14th: Eventim Apollo, London
