It happens. But it's not widespread, arm flailing lunacy or anything. Just some gentle too-ing and fro-ing for the most part. You'd have to be a bit of a dick to get your windmill on at a Turner show.
Windmill you say. Huzzah. The perfect excuse for my favourite youtube video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBtTjFM7uGE

saw it for the first time in denver at the headline show last fall. wasn't expecting it to be as intense as it was and things got a little crazy. people got a bit crazy at the orlando headlining show as well, but it was pretty well contained. ybor city and orlando brought a bit during the opening set this round, which impressed me.

Haha, understood. When he headlined in Atlanta last year a lot of people were moshing and there were a few crowd surfers. The hardcore Frank people were also moshing when he opened for the Dropkicks a few weeks ago. Obviously, it was a lot more kind hearted than a Molly concert, but happened a lot none the less.

There was a huge amount of crowd surfing and moshing during the St Patricks day shows in Lowell,MA. The surprising part of that is the afternoon show was Frank solo acoustic. The evening show was chaos from start to finish and the Dropkick Murphys set almost destroyed the venue. It was a 6000 seat sold out show

I am a diehard DKM fan & new FT/SS fan. I was fortunate to see 8 Dropkicks shows in a row, 7 with FT thanks to the kindness of a stranger. The last show at the Brighton music hall was super intimate (330 fans) & of course I was #1 in line at Al's Liquor in Southie to get my wristband. I thought the opening bands were great & reminiscent of those early DKM shows in the Boston Punk Scene. I will be honest though that I truely missed the energy & melody of Frank & the sleeping souls especially Nigel. Cheers to Scott Keys for the harmonica solo up in lowell & thank you again for everything.

Kevin

Hey Kevin,

My email is ascottkeys86@yahoo.com. Great to meet you. I am sure I will see you next St. Patrick's Day in Boston and if Frank plays there in the fall, I may be there then.
