FRANK TURNER ANNOUNCES NORTH AMERICAN 2017 TOUR 

Friday, January 27 - Livewire

Ticket Pre-Sale Launches Tuesday, October 18 And On Sale To General Public Beginning Friday, October 21



October 17, 2016 - British singer-songwriter Frank Turner announced today that he will return stateside this winter for a 2017 North American tour with his band The Sleeping Souls.  Turner, who will headline dates in the US,  kicks off the tour in Silver Springs, MD on January 19 at The Fillmore and will hit major cities including Phoenix on Friday, January 27th at Livewire. Special guests Arkells and Will Varley open the show.

"I'm always happy to announce more tour dates, but rarely so much as today; not only are we coming back to the USA and hitting some major cities, not only are we touring Canada with our new friends the Arkells, not only do we have an amazing line-up of bands opening for me, we're also playing my first Arena headline show outside the UK, in Boston,” said Turner. It's like the American Wembley, for me. See you there."

Last year, Turner released his sixth album Positive Songs For Negative People, the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2013 release Tape Deck Heart. Turner recorded Positive Songs For Negative People with his trusted backing band The Sleeping Souls and it was produced by Butch Walker in Nashville. An EP titled Mittens followed featuring a new mix of the title track plus four additional songs.
