but, i really hope this isnt our big monday announcement :\


When were we promised a "big band". We were told there were some surprises to come but nothing that big.

And as far as surprises go, this is massive.


I agree, this is huge!

They're going to show so many of the younger but 'more established' bands up!!

And they are in an absolutely perfect slot as well.



Just what I was thinking. This Bohemia tent better be big!!!

I'm very happy with this. I'm a big Thunder fan and have been gutted that this is the last tour. They are amazing live and his voice is as amazing live as it is on record

I'm pretty stoked too, I missed them at Download - they were supposed to be superb. It's not really my kind of music but I'd still love to see them so they have a chance to convert me before they go forever!
Some people are like slinkies, completely useless but great fun to watch when you push them down the stairs.

They don't sound too bad. I'd heard about a lot of people getting excited about seeing them at Download and my mum likes them. Not sure if that's a good thing or not though :lol:

You will enjoy them, I am sure about that.

I am going to see them Saturday at Hammersmith and have been looking forward to that for so long now. Now I have another reason to look forward to Sonisphere.

This is a great piece of news (though it smashes any thought that the Wildhearts were headlining Bohemia to bits), especially as I could only see a couple of songs at Download. What a way to say farewell

Good band - I believe that THIS is the band that Stuart said not to miss and it's one of the big surprises. Still got 3 mainstage ones left and I daresay a couple more for Bohemia too

Thunder will now probably be one of the best bands on the entire bill
At Download i thought they were amazing
IMO they were the best live band on the entire weekend
Really happy to be seeing them on their last show ever :D

get the backstreet symphony album, the last 3 disc greatest hits is rather good but theres a lot of stuff for die hards on there, no one gave em a bad review at download and as its the last ever show its gonna be pretty special
