|Frank Turner will be canceling his performances at Pukkelpop, Gampel and Highfield Festivals this weekend due to lingering issues with his back that he has been fighting through for over a month. Turner has written a blog to update fans on his health; feel free to leave him well wishes in the replies.|
Anyone who knows me even vaguely will know that, as well as being in a fair amount of pain, I’m filled with rage at my puny weakling back for letting me down, not to mention all the people at the shows. I can only humbly apologise. Hopefully I can sort this issue now and going forward I’ll be fine to keep touring til I’m old and gray.
Speaking of the future, people coming to Hatfield, Reading and Leeds need not worry – the shows will go ahead, we are working on a plan, and if I have to do them in a goddamn wheelchair I will. Everyone in my team, from the Sleeping Souls on down, are being really great about making sure that the show goes on. Thanks for your patience and good wishes.
