It’ll be a never ending run of magic this November when iconic UK folk-punk troubadour FRANK TURNER and his band THE SLEEPING SOULS return to New Zealand and Australia for ‘The Never Ending Tour Of Everywhere’, alongside special guests MOM JEANS and EMILY BARKER. This marks FRANK TURNER‘s biggest Australian headline tour.
As one of the UK’s most successful artists, FRANK TURNER has played almost 2.7K shows across the globe since his first solo gig back in 2004. Now with nine studio albums to his name and having sold over a million albums worldwide, FRANK TURNER‘s ongoing legacy has seen him perform at practically every UK venue imaginable, from tiny club shows to stadiums, including London’s O2 Arena and Wembley Arena, and even at the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
With his recent albums peaking at #2 and #3 in the charts, FRANK TURNER‘s latest full length, 2022’s ‘FTHC’, scored a #1 on the UK Official Album Chart, with his ninth album praised by Kerrang! for its self-awareness, honesty and heartfelt inspiration. Stemming from pandemic acoustic livestream sessions, ‘FTHC’ also accompanied FRANK‘s work raising over £200K for struggling grassroot music venues via his livestreams, resulting in him winning the Music Venue Trust’s award for Outstanding Achievement for Grassroots Music Venues.
Hailing from Berkeley, California, American rockers MOM JEANS have steadily morphed into a modern pop punk powerhouse sprinkled with nostalgic influences. With their latest album ‘Sweet Tooth’ inspired by the likes of Weezer, Oasis, and Third Eye Blind amongst many others, MOM JEANS have steadily refined their addictive trademark sound since forming in 2014, most recently performing at Download Festival in the UK, as well as in North America and Australia for their album launch run, and will next be seen onstage for Sad Summer Festival alongside the likes of Taking Back Sunday, The Maine and more.
An award-winning singer-songwriter hailing from Western Australia, EMILY BARKER has been releasing and performing music globally as both a solo artist and with various bands and collaborations over the years, including as the writer and performer of the theme song for the BBC crime drama Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh, and as a film composer. With her latest album ‘A Dark Murmuration of Words’, which hit #1 on the UK’s Official Americana Album Chart, EMILY‘s latest work has been significantly praised for its dark yet optimistic lyricism, including a 5/5 star review from The Australian upon its debut.
Don’t sleep on what is guaranteed to be never ending musical beauty from start to finish, secure your spot and get set for some truly unforgettable evenings this November.
