Thunder On Higher Ground


On 23 March 2018, Thunder will release a brand new live set ‘Stage’ through earMUSIC. 

‘Stage’ features hits from right across the band’s career and includes fan-favourite classics like ‘Backstreet Symphony’, ‘Low Life In High Places‘ and ‘Love Walked In‘ and bringing things right up to date with tracks from the 2017 Top 3 UK Chart Album title track Rip It Up‘ and ‘She Likes The Cocaine‘.  Thunder are of course a noted and globally in demand live act.  ‘Stage’ was captured at Cardiff Motorpoint Arena on March 24th 2017 during the UK Tour; the band also played Europe, North America & Asia, across Germany with Alice Cooper, at Planet Rock’s ‘Rockstock’ and are preparing to fly to Japan for some January 2018 dates. This is a band that knows how to rock a crowd!

Frontman Danny Bowes says of the new record, “The Rip It Up album was so well received, it was no surprise the tour was brilliant too.  We decided to include a Cardiff Motorpoint Arena show on the tour, purely because it was so good when we played there with Journey & Whitesnake in 2013. Capturing it as well turned out to be one of our better decisions, because the resulting film and album are a shining example of an organic “coming together” of fans and a band. We’ve released a few live recordings over the years, but this is most definitely up there with the best of them. We’re extremely pleased with it.”

‘Stage’ will be available as a 2CD + Blu-ray, 3LP, DVD, Blu-ray and a Limited Edition Box Set.  The audio-visual formats will feature a host of bonus and interview material, whilst the Limited Edition Box Set will include also boast the full ‘Live At The 100 Club’ set, the ’29 Minutes Later’ acoustic set [only previously made available as a Record Store Day release], and the documentary film ‘A Difficult Day In January: Thunder In London’ [all tracklistings / content as below].

Since forming in 1989, Thunder have established themselves at the top table of UK rock, notching up some twenty Top Fifty singles and two Gold albums. The band’s sound is a timeless marriage of unforgettable melodies and sheer rock power.  ‘Stage’ shows off not just an amazing catalogue of unforgettable rock hits, but just the sheer live power that Thunder possess.
