I don't think you've been to a Frank Turner show in the states if you think he has little recognition. He's played on satellite radio and the shows I've been to have always had at least 1,000 people there.
I have been. I'm just saying that compared to arenas and Olympics its not the same.
The tour with IIOI had venues that were at least ten times smaller than his venues outside the states. The show I saw him play in San Antonio this spring was about 3/4 full in a ~1300 Venue. I agree that its not tiny anymore but it doesn't even compare.l
