Frank Turner announces new UK tour

0

English folk-singer songwriter Frank Turner has announced a new UK tour today, named ‘The Get Better Tour’, which will also feature his backing band, The Sleeping Souls.

Turner took to his own website to announce the tour saying: “I know, I know, it’s been a long while since we were on home turf. And last time we toured the UK we only played the major cities. So, as is becoming tradition, this time we are hitting some different places, taking the show around the country to see some different people. Of course I can’t ever please everyone, but this is an attempt to cover as much ground as I can this year.” Turner has not played live in the UK since his 2015 set at Glastonbury.
