Frank Turner announces Canadian tour for September 2024

Frank Turner announces a new Canadian tour in support of his upcoming 10th studio album ‘Undefeated.’ Featuring stops in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg, the tour will find Turner bringing his highly regarded live performances across the country, accompanied by his longtime band The Sleeping Souls. The tour kicks off at The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver on September 3rd. Tickets are on sale Friday, May 3rd at 10 am local time.

Says Turner“Of COURSE we’re bringing the ‘Undefeated’ tour to Canada this year. I mean, we already have Lost Evenings in Toronto, but there’s other places to visit too. Here’s some of ‘em. Can’t wait to get back.”

Having amassed a huge fanbase in Canada, the tour is a welcome addition to Turner’s already impressive 2024 Canadian presence. Turner previously announced his award-winning festival, Lost Evenings, is coming to Canada for the first time on September 19-22, 2024 for its seventh instalment.

Having successfully sold out events in previous years in London, Berlin, Boston, and Anaheim, California – the four-day festival will take place at the brand new Theatre at the Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto. Promoted by Live Nation, the multi-stage event will occupy many rooms of the new venue providing a full program of live music, panels, workshops, and more.

The 2024 Canadian run is in support of ‘Undefeated,’ Turner’s upcoming 10th studio album, which arrives May 3rd via XTRA Mile recordings. The album features the latest single ‘Letters,’ as well as ‘Girl From The Record Shop,’ ‘No Thank You For The Music,’ and ‘Do One.’

‘Undefeated’ is Frank’s follow-up to his first UK #1 album, 2022’s ‘FTHC.’ Finding the sweet spot between youthful outspokenness and surviving midlife’s challenges, it’s a record that explores both emotionally compelling topics and lighter reflections on those troubles that eventually come to most of us. While thematically ‘Undefeated’ is informed by this time in life, sonically it’s full of echoes to influences that Frank has touched upon at various moments in his kaleidoscopic career.

It switches from Black Flag to Counting Crows, from Descendents to The Pogues, via Elvis Costello and Billy Bragg. Its freewheeling nature is reflective not only of his new-found independence but also of the creative environment he found himself in. As usual, it was entirely written by himself, but this is the first album that he produced himself, recorded in the home studio that he and his wife, Jessica Guise, share on Mersea Island, Essex. It features his live band: Ben Lloyd (guitar), Tarrant Anderson (bass), Callum Green (drums), and Matt Nasir (piano).
