Frank is minimal on the swearing front in my experience & it is never out of context.

Don't take your kids to see Biffy Clyro though, masses of gratuitous swearing, love them but really boys, it isn't clever!

I absolutely have to disagree. He's got a serious potty mouth.

Sound quality is not the best but I was standing near whoever took these which capture the essence, energy & excitement of a full on performance from start to finish.

Anywhere Holly, my sensible 10 year old has requested that you swear a little less than normal on the night if you would be so kind? Theo just wants it to be loud!
I recommend taking some good earplugs for Holly and Theo. Your ears work a lot better when you are young so it will seem a lot louder and ears are more easily damaged at that age. They don't have to wear them but it would be good to give them the option and let them realise that it is OK to wear them if they need to.
I think this is much more important than the swearing personally ... good advice. They can still hear everything through the earplugs and it will still feel loud and fun, but with less risk for hearing damage.

Which leads me to a question I have for Mr. Turner every time I watch the video for Photosynthesis. How did that go? The kids, musicians, everyone looked like I they had a blast but I wondered how many times he bit his tongue.

Gosh seriously? Naughty Frank. Maybe he was on his bestest behaviour at the gigs I have been to.

Maybe I'm a bit free but I'm happy with my 12 and 10 year old swearing at home. I know they are going to do it anyway so at least this way I can make sure they know what they are saying! Racist, sexist and homophobic putdowns however are never repeated, so at least I can console myself that they know the difference between what is acceptable or not in my home. In fact my 10 year old made me very proud when he confronted the typical playground homophobia type comments at his previous school.
I kinda think that if they listen to Frank, listen to any chart type music, go to rugby matches etc they are gonna know those words anyway. Don't worry it makes them whole, rounded people.

My 12yr old has been to Reading fest since he was 8 and Frank gigs from I think 10? Maybe? 6yr old only 1 Reading fest. Both don't really like swearing (older one now finds it funny to hear but doesn't even swear if singing along, he has called me an arsehole when I went for his blackheads though..I deserved it) younger one hates swearing.

I'm with Darlene, I don't expect any allowances to be made because I have chosen to take my kids into that situation, it is not anyone's concern but mine. I only take mine where I do if I'm confident they can take the situation (crowds, noise, swearing, questionable behavior etc) for example I dislike sitting at gigs but my eldest, although he could pass for 14, had a bad barrier experience at Reading once and is wary of the crowds at inside venues so he prefers to sit. I would hate for anyone to modify their experience because of this. That said, (back on topic) they have both loved the shows put on by Frank at gigs or festivals and yours will not notice any swearing I'm sure as they will be too distracted by the atmosphere.

Also kids at gigs, I've never had a negative reaction to it. I'm sure you will all have a great time.
