UK folk-punk songwriter Frank Turner is returning to Aotearoa in April 2020, to play a special pair of solo headline events at Auckland's Crystal Palace and Wellington's San Fran. Last here for a rapturously received North Island tour only a year ago, the prolific live favourite will be back touring No Man’s Land, his eighth long player in just over a decade – an acoustic guitar-driven, thirteen track opus dedicated to telling the stories of women from throughout history, including Byzantine princess Kassiani, Egyptian feminist activist Huda Sha'arawi, and Resusci Anne (Rescue Annie), whose face was the template for medical CPR mannequins worldwide. Supporting Turner for both NZ shows is Tamaki Makaurau's Being., check out details below...

UPDATE 17/03/20: Frank Turner's NZ headline events have been cancelled, read his statement here - fans can tune into a live FB streaming show tomorrow night.

Touring in support of his latest album No Man’s Land, which features an all-female cast of musicians, focusing on inspirational women from all walks of life whose stories have been largely overlooked. Honing in on his love of folk with acoustic guitar the guiding force, he tells these stories (many of them dark and tragic) with empathy, tenderness, and a desire to illuminate curiosity about his subjects, highlighting both their struggles and valiant successes, making No Man's Land a welcome addition to Turner's critically acclaimed catalogue.

“It’s bringing together my two main interests in life, which have always been separate from each other - history and songwriting,” explains Turner, who can be found seeking out long-forgotten historical sites on self-guided psycho-geographical strolls when he’s not packing out arenas or headlining festivals. Delivering his yearningly honest and heartfelt punk-tinged catalogue, don’t miss UK’s Frank Turner on his Australian and New Zealand 2020 tour!
