Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls embarks on the UK leg of his worldwide tour ahead of the release of his album 'Tape Deck Heart'.
Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls at Glasgow's O2 Academy
Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls took to Glasgow's O2 Academy for his second UK date out of six on his major world tour.
The folk guitarist grabbed the nation's attention when he performed at the Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics last summer and now he's spreading the music worldwide, landing in the UK this week and playing an amazing set in Glasgow on Thursday (April 18th 2013). It was the singer's second date in the UK on this tour where he was supported by the American bluegrass band Larry and His Flask and London folk artist George Frakes. Turner certainly didn't hold back at the prestigious venue, and seemed blissfully both unaware and uncaring of the whacky performance faces he was pulling. That's what we like - someone who's most comfortable when playing guitar in a 2,500 capacity venue.
The dimpled AIM award winner is set to release his new album 'Tape Deck Heart' next week on April 22nd 2013 and it's certainly one of our most anticipated albums this year so far following its first brilliant single 'Recovery' which earned itself a place not only in the UK charts, but also the US Alternative chart's top 40.
