Frank Turner at the O2 Arena London

On February 12th, 2014, Frank Turner played his biggest headline show to date, along with the Sleeping Souls, at the O2 Arena in London. To say he looked at home on such a huge stage would be an exaggeration, but he knew how to handle it. After support from Beans on Toast and Flogging Molly, the crowd were more than ready for Frank to start his show, a near 2 hour set combining all the classics, old and new, as well as some surprises.

Frank Turner started his music career as guitarist for punk band Million Dead, but in 2005 they split up, and, being inspired by his good friend Jay McAllister, (aka Beans on Toast), he decided to pick up an acoustic guitar and become a solo artist, fusing punk and folk. Since then, Frank has released 5 studio albums, with the most recent, Tape Deck Heart, reaching number 2 in the UK album charts, 5 studio EP's and 3 compilation albums.
