Frank Turner - Special Festive London Show!

Come all ye faithful… Frank Turner and friends present:

Having sold out his headline gig at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on October 29th Frank Turner announces a very special night of festive fun and Christmas cheer at London's beautiful Union Chapel in Islington.


Taking place on 19th December, as the year draws to a winter-y close, Frank Turner and friends will be presenting a one-off gig of music and celebration. Hand-picking fellow musicians to be part of the night, the line-up of rising stars, old friends and special guests will join him in a festive feast of fantastic folk/punk and acoustic music.

It’s been an incredible year for Frank which has seen him infiltrate daytime radio, sign a worldwide deal with Epitaph Records (ex-UK), play arena shows in America supporting The Offspring, play the NME/Radio 1 tent at Reading and Leeds Festival and burst into the charts with his third album Poetry Of The Deed – to name but a few of the milestones surpassed in the last 12 months.
This gig at the Union Chapel is the perfect way to toast to these successes before conquering even more in 2010

Tickets are £13 and are on general sale on Friday 11th September 2009
19th December 2009, London Union Chapel, Islington.

Zane Lowe’s Album Of The Week on Radio 1
“’There’s a beautiful straightforwardness to ‘Poetry…’ that will ring true if you’ve ever been young, in love, lonely, angry at the world or just plain happy to be alive. Which is all of us right?” 8/10 NME “A latter day Billy Bragg.” 3/5 Q Magazine "‘Poetry Of The Deed’ passes the test with flying colours." 8/10 Rocksound “With a growing arsenal of hits and live favourites, Frank’s unleashed another album that will have you singing every word.” 4/5 Big Cheese "More brilliant folk-punk strummery from everyone's favourite post-millennial wandering minstrel..." KERRANG!
