Turner recently announced his biggest ever headline tour for February 2014. The 7 date run includes his first ever headline date at the huge London O2 Arena as well as other impressive arenas in Cardiff, Manchester, Nottingham and more.
The arena dates in February 2014 are:
Thursday 6th Cardiff Motorpoint Arena
Friday 7th Nottingham Arena
Saturday 8th Edinburgh Corn Exchange
Sunday 9th Manchester Arena
Tuesday 11th Plymouth Pavillions
Wednesday 12th London O2
Thursday 13th Portsmouth Guildhall
But before that, Turner returns to playing more intimate shows with a special gig at The Monarch venue in Camden, London on 30th September raising money and awareness for the charity War Child. Tickets are available to win via XFM.
And then he's off Stateside for a lengthy tour covering all corners of North America throughout October, November and December. With his popularity ever soaring, the first date of the tour is already sold out.
As well as headlining Wembley Arena last year, Turner was chosen to open Danny Boyle's stunning Olympic Opening Ceremony and he played the Main Stage at Reading/Leeds festival this year, where he was the highest-billed UK artist on that day.
'Tape Deck Heart' reached number one on the iTunes chart, number two on the Official Chart and also entered the Top Ten on the US iTunes Chart in its week of release, underlining Frank Turner's arrival as a crossover DIY star. 'Tape Deck Heart' is his most expertly crafted yet, an album pockmarked with years of relentless touring and prolific writing, where Turner sounds at his most accomplished without sandpapering down his raw edge, spinning narrative tales through rousing, adrenaline-veined anthems.
Like the rest of the record, 'Oh Brother' was produced by Muse collaborator Rich Costey.
