I can't get over how good he was on Friday, it was one of my favourite gigs I've been to. He said on his twitter it was in his top 5 shows ever which is pretty cool. :happy:

Edinburgh was awesome. A very fresh setlist. He had back problems and some guitar issues so he seemed quite angry during the 1st half, but the crowd were great at supporting him and he really got happy and grateful to us and it showed. Awesome night.

Amsterdam was also awesome! Better than Edinburgh, mainly just for the difference in the fans. At every UK show I've been to there have been one or more drunk assholes who ruin things for all around them, but A'dam was so much better! There was a lot of pushing and dancing but it was all light hearted and fun. Great setlist and the supports were fun too. All enjoyed with good friends in a city I love! Pics will surface soon hopefully.

Many better people have better pictures of the gig which I'm sure can be found all over the internet but this is more personal and so for me it's better. I can't get the Polaroid Picture lyric out of my head with this "Let go of the little distractions, hold close to the ones that you love, cos we won't all be here this time next year so while you can take a picture of us."

It was a fantastic show indeed! Frank and the others seemed happy as well, great atmosphere. Highlights for me were acoustic I am Disappeared and To Take You Home. Two of the many favourite FT songs I have! :happy:

I was gonna ask which shows you're going to! So yeah, have a super amazing time at those shows! :happy: I'm still excited to see what they're doing at the upcoming EU shows even though I won't be there myself.

Thanks a lot! :happy: Of course, totally understandable! Isn't it always like that? I love following a band's tour on the web, it's always exciting, even if I'm not part of those shows.

I'll see him in Stockholm this Wednesday and I can't wait, great to see that you guys here on GDC have had a great time on the concerts you've been to!

 

He had a shout out on twitter this afternoon asking for translations on Eulogy so I sent him a mail and offered my help with the Swedish one. He got back to me immediately but unfortunately for me he already had it covered ;)  Anyway, it's so classy of him doing things like this and there's not any other heroes of mine I can say that I've emailed with :lol:

I do notice that his twitter bio was always his email address but now it's been changed to the FAQ section of his contact page. Seems to be trying to cut down on the number of emails, I don't blame him!

Good times in Kiel yesterday :) That was probably my favourite FT show so far. The setlist wasn't as good as the ones in the UK, but the fantastic atmosphere made up for that.

And I loved that he played his brilliant Mr. Jones cover and St. Christopher Is Coming Home which I requested via mail on Wednesday. Amazing man (you can hear him mentioning the e-mail at the end of video haha)

 

 

Can't wait for Hamburg on Friday :)

Last night I saw him and it was fucking amazing and I loved the setlist. I was on the 2nd or 3rd row all the time (got moved as the crowd swayed obviously) and it was a club gig so I was barely 1.5 meters away from the stage. When he did a brief crowd walk during One Foot Before The Other I patted him on his leg and his guitar :lol: And I can't remember the last time I sweated as much as I did during that gig.

Aw man the crowd walk is tough! I was one of them supporting one of his feet in Edinburgh and that was not easy! What did you think of the setlist? Any surprises?

I loved the setlist. I suppose it was pretty standard but some surprises would be the cover of Abba’s Dancing Queen which he said was spontaneous because there was a guy in the audience who shouted/requested it. He also sang Wherefore Art Thou Gene Simmons which I guess is pretty rare even though he did it when he was over here last summer. And he brought up a fan on the stage to play harmonica during Dan’s Song and she had apparently never played the harmonica before.

Wow that is interesting. I never thought we'd hear Dancing Queen again and I thought the Dan's Song thing was over too. Nice to see him shake it up a bit.

Hamburg's setlist yesterday wasn't that good tbh.

 

 

He played two requests and both of them were new songs. Song for Josh and Tattoos. Song for Josh is absolutely incredible though, such a sad song.

And he played Fields of June with Emily Barker in German instead of Ballad :(

 

His UK sets were pretty good, but oh well... By the way, am I the only one here who absolutely hates One Foot Before The Other? :lol:

He played Fields of June in German? I hope there's a video of that somewhere!

 

The recorded version is a bit meh for me but I love the live version. I'll never refuse an opportunity to shout and mosh!

Excuse the double post, but I felt like sharing these with you guys :)

 

Ducking Punches! Dan was such a nice and also talented guy. We talked to him after the show and he tried to get all our names correctly. It worked for the others but not for mine :lol: In the end he managed to present all four correctly to Frank, though! Anja has a photo of us with him!

Andrew Jackson Jihad! I really enjoyed when Frank joined in on the drums. He seemed to have lots of fun.

Such a fantastic show, seriously!

Frank asked me which song I want him to play at the Darmstadt show when I told him I'd see him there. I immediately replied "Father's Day", the first song that came to my mind which I'd love to hear live. He then told me to write him a mail as a reminder :lol: Well yeah, we will see! :happy: He's really nice!

Another double post.. I'm sorry. But Darmstadt was absolutely fantastic! He actually really played "Father's Day" and apologized with "I'm really bad at remembering names.." - well, that's fine. :happy: Also on the setlist: Tattoos and Love, Ire & Song. :wub: Other than that the usual setlist. I have another bunch of photos but I might just post them in my own thread!

School's getting in my way as well :( I got really lucky that I was off school for a week to go to Amsterdam, but of course he had to to a UK tour during my exams :pinch: Of course, now that I'm 18 there's no sign of an Irish date :lol:

Still, Amsterdam was incredible. :wub: I'd seen him before three times, but never doing a full set. They were all either festivals or a show he was opening up for. This was the first time I had a ticket saying "Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls". And being with my friends just made it even more amazing.

Speaking of which, I forgot to post these earlier
