Watch Thunder perform Backstreet Symphony live


Thunder have released a video showcasing their classic 1990 track Backstreet Symphony.

The footage has been lifted from the UK outfit’s upcoming live album Stage which was recorded at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on March 24 last year.

It’ll arrive on March 23 via earMUSIC on 2CD/Blu-ray, 3LP, DVD, Blu-ray and a limited edition box set.

Frontman Danny Bowes says: “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 and 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 is now available for pre-order. Find the cover art and tracklist below.

Thunder bassist Chris Childs and drummer Harry James will be at the London bass show at London’s Olympia which runs on March 3 and 4.

The annual event will be held in association with Bass Guitar Magazine, MusicRadar, Guitarist, Total Guitar, Guitar Techniques and Acoustic.
