FRANK TURNER Tickets
Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls have announced new live dates for February 2014 that include a biggest headline gig to date at The O2, London on the 12th.
What would have been the final date of the tour at Portsmouth Guildhall on Feb 13th sold out long ago, but now he's announced a new date at the Winchester Guildhall on Feb 14th. Tickets will be available on Aloud at 9am on SATURDAY January 12th
Speaking about the 2014 tour dates Frank has said, "The Sleeping Souls and I will be playing shows in Cardiff, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Manchester, London, Portsmouth and Plymouth in February 2014. I can’t wait to get back in the saddle and around the home country again, for what I guess we’re calling the 'Tape Deck Heart Tour'.
We have an absolutely insane support bill coming together (more details on that soon), and, as the Wembley show proved, we can all still come together and create a great atmosphere, singing and dancing together.
Playing shows at this level is pretty insane for me, I’m pinching myself hard, and I think now is as good a time as any to say thanks to all of you for bringing me and my band and crew to this place. So: thanks"
Following a year that saw a headline sold out Wembley Arena and a performance at the London Olympics Opening Ceremony, Winchester-born folk/punk hero Frank Turner started 2013 by announcing the title, tracklisting and release date for his forthcoming album, plus details of a short run of UK headline shows - which subsequently sold out.
On 22nd April 2013 Frank released ‘Tape Deck Heart’, his highly anticipated fifth studio album, the album followed up 2011’s ‘England Keep My Bones’ which has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.
Frank explains further: “So, friends, the time is finally upon us! My new record is called ‘Tape Deck Heart’. There will be two versions - the normal record, and then a special edition with special packaging and an extra six songs. I'm pleased as punch with it. Some of you will know some of the songs from us playing them live, but there's a whole bunch of new stuff on there as well. I hope you like it!”
Before all that though Frank spent a few months on the road supporting The Dropkick Murpheys playing huge arenas across Europe and to the other side of the world in Australia.
Frank Turner has had an exceptional couple of years; a huge sold out 2011 UK tour culminating at Hammersmith Apollo, Main Stage sets at Reading and Leeds, a top 12 album 'England Keep My Bones' and his biggest headline show at Wembley Arena. 2013 also saw general release of Frank's 'Second Three Years' - a collection of live tracks, sessions, cover versions, b-sides and lost songs from the past three years. The collection features live recordings of the traditional folk song 'Barbara Allen' from Shepherd's Bush and the show-stopping 'Father's Day' from Union Chapel both in 2009; covers versions of Springsteen, Nirvana, NOFX and Flanders & Swann to name a few.
