Following 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.

20th January London Bush Hall

Tickets are £17.50 each (Subject to booking fee) and go on sale on Friday 16th September at 9.00am.

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 two 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..."

A very civilised and fun evening for all, the perfect antidote to the New Year Blues...
