Xtra Mile Records have announced that they will be celebrating Frank Turner‘s show at London’s Wembley Arena on April 13 with an intimate gig the night before (April 12).
The record label, which has released all of Turner’s solo albums as well as the two LPs he recorded while singer of hardcore punks Million Dead, will stage the gig at London’s Barfly.
Among the acts scheduled to play are Loved Ones frontman Dave Hause, singer-songwriter Ben Marwood, Jim Lockey And The Solemn Sun and rock band Crazy Arm. The show also promises to include some very special guests, with Turner himself more than likely to make an appearance. Tickets for the show, which is called ‘Twas The Night Before Wembley’, are onsale now.
Speaking to NME in a video which you can see by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking, Turner said of his plans for his Wembley Arena show, which is almost sold out: “Wembley’s going to be good, it’s going to be massive. Saying that, I went down there recently to have a look around and I kind of wet myself all over again and ended up clinging to my manager’s leg like a lost child in a supermarket.”
He continued: “It is large, but my band and my crew are good at what we do and nobody’s been thinking about anything else for months. I’m confident that we’re going to put on a great show.”
Billy Bragg and Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip will provide support at Turner’s Wembley show.
