UK rockers Thunder will play their last ever gig at this year's Sonisphere festival.

The veteran band have joined the bill for the two-day event, which takes place at Knebworth House on August 1 and 2.

"Our final six months have been incredible, with sell-out shows and brilliant festival appearances all over," explained singer Danny Bowes. "It's somehow quite fitting that we’ll play our last show in the UK, and having gone there as kids to see the (Rolling) Stones and Led Zeppelin, to do it at Knebworth will be a real thrill. Bring it on!"
