Frank Turner Setlist
Beans on Toast
McAllister seemed to truly be in love with Dinkytown (the area that the Varsity Theater is in). He was explaining to a crowd that if he wrote a song about Dinkytown, it would be nothing short of a love song. He kept on mentioning how he was going to move here and start a family here. When he joined Frank Turner on stage towards the end of the show, he was wearing a Dinkytown t-shirt.
The second Frank Turner got on stage the sold out crowd seemed to fade away and it felt like it was Frank singing just to me. It seemed like every song he sang was written for me. Like his song Tattoos where he talks about blowing your paycheck on tattoos that you will probably later regret but that are part of you. Or the song Recovery which is about exactly that, the road to recovery of whatever problems you have.

The "tour flag" was at the show last night. What's a "tour flag"? Basically, as Turner explained it, it's a banner that a fan made that has been to every show recently including overseas, Mexico.... everywhere. Apparently it just keeps on getting passed on at each show and has made it everywhere. Oh man, if flags could talk!
Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls (his backing band) played for right around two hours straight. He played a little bit of the old and a little bit of the new. He even played a couple of requests that were sent to him via Twitter earlier in the day.
Frank Turner's Positive Songs For Negative People is out now on Interscope.
