Singer-songwriter appeared at Death Or Glory Records in Worcestershire on Saturday

Frank Turner opened for two unsigned bands at a record shop in Redditch over the weekend

Turner appeared at Death Or Glory Records in the Worcestershire town, playing first on a bill that also included local acts The Hungry Ghosts and headliners, Electric.

The big name guest was kept a secret until the day of the show, with Turner playing for free in order to help the independent business out.

Despite playing a headline gig at London’s O2 Arena in 2014, Turner played to just 70 fans as the record shop celebrated its first birthday. Turner played new material in among fan favourites, with unreleased song ‘Get Better’ featuring in the 10-song, half-hour set.

Frank Turner played:

‘If Ever I Stray’
‘Losing Days’
‘Get Better’
‘Wessex Boy’
‘Glorious You’
‘The Way I Tend to Be’
‘Jet Lag’
‘Photosynthesis’
‘Recovery’
‘I Still Believe’

Turner’s last small-scale gig came at London’s squatted 12 Bar Club earlier this month (February 2). The Soho venue was closed earlier this year, but has been occupied by a group of squatters called ‘Bohemians 4 Soho’ since January 23.

He has also joined the line-up for this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust benefit concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. Turner and his band The Sleeping Souls will play their only UK show of the forseeable future on March 29.
