Re: promoting music

This seems a bit like asking "can anyone tell me how to win the lottery? I've tried buying a ticket every week, but other than that does anyone know anything else I can do?". If there was a secret shortcut to turning a band into something, it wouldn't be secret, and it wouldn't be a shortcut. The ve...

Apologies, appreciate you're frustrated and angry - but posting someone's phone number in this manner could get you, and potentially frank, into a lot of legal trouble, so I've edited it out of your post.

Re: O2 - 12/02/2014 - Tubes

Hope that the strike is called off. :D Not looking likely at this point. If my commute last week was anything to go by, you can try to use the limited tube services, but expect to have to wait for many trains to pass as you queue on platforms to board. If you try to use the buses bear in mind you w...

Re: UK Arena Tour/ Meet the crowd

I hear the best bet is the new 'Frank Turner New Year's Diet'. You buy as many FT gig tickets as possible, then you simply won't be able to afford to eat for days on end. Good music and the pounds just fall away. Win win. Learn This One Weird Trick That Celebrity English Country Singers Use To Stay...

Re: UK Arena Tour/ Meet the crowd

So the soundcheck meets are now potluck brunches? Someone brings a pack of Doritos, someone else brings a selection of dips, etc?

I'm so hungry after reading this thread. I pity anyone reading trying to stick to a new diet for 2014.

Re: UK Arena Tour/ Meet the crowd

Well honestly, I am far too shy to go say hello anyway I thought about this, and I think I can identify some simple do's and don'ts when meeting frank. With apologies to frank if any of this is wrong: DO: say hello . Don't just stare from across the room all night, or hover closely nearby but never...

Re: Request for O2 Arena. Feb 12

If I might speak plainly (in fact: you know what, screw it, I'm going to speak plainly anyway): it's a show. You are there to be entertained by something created by someone else. You can experience it, at some level you can participate in it, but you don't control it. frank and a whole bunch of othe...

Re: Request for O2 Arena. Feb 12

Do you honestly hate Bruce Springsteen so much that you want frank to ruin all his songs? How incredibly bitter. Bruce Springsteen doesn't deserve your irrational hate. You guys need to get some perspective. He's just an ordinary guy trying to make a living. You all sicken me. Grow up, there's more ...

Re: Matt Ridley - Really?

Does Frank really recommend this guy to others? Never shuts up about him. You can't go five minutes without him starting on a diatribe about Ridley, to be honest. I once managed to get 30 seconds into a conversation with him about music and he still managed to steer the conversation back to fucking...
