Thunder’s Danny Bowes and Luke Morley have announced that they’ll he’d out on the road across the UK later this year.

The vocalist and guitarist have mapped out a total of 16 dates on the Unplugged & Unscripted tour, which will see the pair chat about their 30-year career in the band and perform acoustic versions of some of their best-loved tracks.

The evenings will be compered by author and broadcaster Mick Wall.

Fans will also have the opportunity to hang out with the pair in meet and greet sessions after after each show, while an acoustic CD will also be available exclusively at the venues.

Bowes says: “Thunder have a really busy year with big shows, festivals and much, much more. It’s also been a great start with a series of shows in spring that did really well.

“But we also wanted to do something a little bit special and a little bit more intimate and so we’re visiting venues that we’ve never played before so that we’re really close to the fans. 

“We’re going across the country with these and we’ve deliberated chosen intimate settings so people can hear half a dozen acoustic tracks as well as hosted chat, where we’ll talk about the songs, life on the road and 30 years of Thunder.”

Tickets are now on sale.
