The folk/punk troubadour will play a festival warm-up concert at The Forum Hertfordshire in the lead up to his main stage performances at Reading and Leeds.

Following the release of his new album, Tape Deck Heart, Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls will appear at the College Lane venue on Thursday, August 22.

After 1,400 live shows and four acclaimed albums, last year saw the musician perform at the Olympics Opening Ceremony in London, headline Wembley Arena and sell more than 100,000 copies of his fourth album, England Keep My Bones, which entered the UK charts at number 12 on its release.

Frank will be joined at The Forum by his band The Sleeping Souls, consisting of Ben Lloyd, Matt Nasir, Nigel Powell and Tarrant Anderson.

The gig will be a one-off show before Frank plays Reading and Leeds Festivals over the following two days.

Taking to Twitter to confirm the date, Frank tweeted: “Playing a Reading & Leeds warm-up show at Hatfield Forum on 22nd August – so stoked!”

Support at The Forum will be provided by singer-songwriter Sam Russo and Felix Hagan & The Family, an eclectic seven-piece experience.

Tickets for the gig cost £20. Tickets go on sale at 9am tomorrow (Tuesday).
