Ah great, now that eventim posted the tickets all the scams put them up online. But what can you do. (I think they all laugh about it.)

Maybe they did check some occasionally but it would take too much time to ID check everyone of thousands of guests. I have a tiny hope at least that these measures deterr some of the 'casual' scammers. The 'professional' ones just laugh about it, I'm afraid.
They've tried it with football over the years - but I've never had a check against ID. When you have a mass of people trying to get in close to kick off - or the show start time - they'd be asking for trouble keeping people waiting. It's always going to happen. Fortunately the touts get their fingers burnt at times and you see a load of tickets for sale on StubHub for way below face value.

Not sure when exactly in the new year, but I think I heard him say to someone outside after the show in Cologne that tour dates will (or might?) be announced this week!!! 8)

Yeah, there's a big European tour coming up in January (and leading into February a little bit, if I'm not mistaken)... And indeed, he said it'd be announced "very soon" :)

Wait, have you been to the gig in Cologne? And got tickets for Amsterdam? Could it be that we've met in Cologne? Front row and waiting outside afterwards? I was the one without the guitar ;-) If so, Hi! Have fun at the gig on Friday!

I was maybe the luckierst bastard of this round and made it to four of five gigs. It's been amazing and as I know there are many people who wanted to go there.. just a little hint. Really soon there will be three (solo) bootlegs floating around the internet (for free of course!). :)

I've been at the Escobar in Berlin and couldn't be happier about it. Such a fun gig in the midst of a shitty week. I'm looking forward to the bootlegs. :) It was a great set as usual.
I loved that he played Balthazar and I Am Disappeared which made me cry a bit (a lot) along with Get Better (happy tears this time).

January can't come soon enough. Next time I'll drag along my colleague who asked my why I went again cause I've seen him "recently" (well in June) so she get's it.

Here we go, quoting myself from the FTA:
Hej guys,
the last gig with four tiny shows here in Germany have been amazing, I met so many FT gig buds (again), felt in love with the Souls (again) and listened to so many rare songs - it felt like a dream. Like a fucking dream. It still does And I know, many people tried to get tickets and didn't get any - I got them for four shows. And maybe some of this group will never have the chance to see Frank in front of 100-300 people or even have a gig on a boat. So I decided to record the last three gigs (Wiesbaden, Hamburg, Berlin) and put out bootlegs for free (of course!). Hand them out to your friends, enjoy them - if I ever hear about one of my bootlegs handed out for money, feel free to burn in hell.

Here's 1/3: Wiesbaden. Cheers.

Thanks @suitcaselife :D ! Excellent Wiesbaden recording - can't wait for the others to load. I love it when people do this - I'm from Canada & Frank Turner gigs are few and far between and I do so love to hear him play live.

Yes that's the problem with dropbox, reuploading it right now.. but here we go with HAMBBURG, Show #1725!
And on we go, here's another bootleg from the current promo tour. Last tuesday Frank was playing on a boat (for 120 people), 90 tickets were sold and the crowd was kinda odd for this tour - there was a lot of talking during the older songs (like during my request Jet Lag). Officially we were cruising around the harbour in Hamburg, but as Frank says we were on open waters and he choosed some sea themed songs for this set. What else to say? Shortest set of the tour, as the boat left at 7pm and had to be back at 9pm and... yeah - maybe you'll hear a friend and me singing from time to time, as we were really close to the recorder (there was no place to pack it away - check my current cover photo) & sometimes you here Frank laughing as it was shaky from time to time.

As I said before, share it with your friends for free. If you charge people for this bootleg, burn in hell! Cheers! <3
