Frank Turner For Brixton Academy Show

February 24, 2010 by  

Having sold out London’s Roundhouse venue 2 months in advance, Frank Turner has announced that he will be headlining London’s Brixton’s 02 Academy later on this year.

The show will be his largest headline gig so far and Frank said of the prospect: “Life has been getting increasingly surreal in recent years, but headlining Brixton really is something special; I’m not sure I ever dared dream I’d get to this stage. It’s an honour.”

The news comes just weeks before Frank embarks on his huge headline tour running throughout March, culminating in the sold out Roundhouse gig on 24th March.

Coinciding with the tour Frank will also release a live version of hit single ‘Long Live The Queen’ digitally and on limited 7” vinyl on 22nd March 2010. Recorded at Frank’s incendiary sold out O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire show which took place last October.
