Thunder - Saturday 20th February - Wembley Arena

So, following their warm up show at the tiny 100 Club, here is the full on arena show at the cavernous Wembley. A decent turn out (curtain 2/3 of the way back) and a large standing area probably meant a crowd of around 6,000 at a guess. And they were loud!

We'd taken the decision to skip the supports (King King and Terrorvision) and actually had a very enjoyable hour in the 'Duke of York' near Marylebone, watching the Swedish heats of qualification for the Eurovision Song Contest (I kid you not!).  Top tip - put a couple of quid on Lisa Ajax to win it - you heard it here first!

Anyway, back at Wembley, you'd have found us in the 'normal spot' - about 6 people back on the left hand side. And what a great show it was. Slightly different (and extended) set. The Wonder Days new songs sounded fantastic at volume and the old classics are timeless. Even one of my least favourite Thunder songs - Empty City - sounded good. The finale of Dirty Love romped past the 10 minute mark, wining my bet with Rich. Great crowd, great band, great night.
