“20 Years Out” Thunder’s Farewell Tour Announced
After 20 years of recording and touring, THUNDER, the band with the most loyal fans in rock, have decided this is a fitting time to hitch up their wagons and ride into the sunset.
Each of the 5 musicians has been spending more time on activities outside the band. Having discussed it at very great length, Thunder have now announced their last ever UK tour, during which they will say thank you and bid an extremely fond farewell to their fans and rock it up for the very last time.
”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 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.
