Rounding off his tenth year as a solo artist with a sold-out UK tour, Frank Turner shows no signs of slowing down. Playing to a packed out crowd at Birmingham’s O2 Academy, the excitement buzzing around the room was impossible to ignore (as were the masses of previous tour tees).
It has been a whirlwind year or so for singer-songwriter George Ezra. With his single ‘Budapest’ becoming a worldwide hit and his debut album Wanted On Voyage climbing to the top of the charts, the O2 Academy became home to the bluesy singer here in Birmingham. And I couldn’t wait to hear that low, raspy voice fill the main room.
