My Honest Review

Fuuuuuck! What an awesome concert! I woke up today at 05:30, travelled 4 hours forth and back from university, worked for 7 hours straight and was feeling poorly with a cold, but nothing of that matter, at this moment I am not even tired! This concert just recharged all my batteries and renewed my soul and faith in humanity. 

Starting with 1933 from their new Album, Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls just got it right with all the room singing along and dancing.

In this concert there are only 2 rules stated by the lead singer:

Don’t be an Asshole
And if you know the lyrics to a song, sing along!

The best rules which should be followed through life. Enjoy everything, but pay attention that you are not harming or bothering anyone else. And, good news! You know what, we did it! People respected each other, had fun, drank, sang and laughed. Which leads me to think why can’t we do it everyday, everywhere?, but that’s another discussion.

The concert was spectacular, with new and old songs and a load of different stories from Frank turner himself, including the one how he met Steve (the lead singer from the support band PUP) which was pretty similar to Titanic =P 
The crowd was there, they were happy and singing and dancing around. The singer even made a couple entrances in the crowd to sing, crowdsurf and even dance with someone in the crowd to the sound of “Four simple words“. You can always see in his eyes how much he is enjoying it and I love the feeling of being part of that!

What impresses me the most on Frank Turners concert is his energy ( he did a small concert  at the Coretex store in Berlin an hour before playing the the Columbiahalle! and was top fit), his love and passion for the music and how he can entertain even the thoughest crowd.

Personally for me, this makes even more sense as most of his lyrics speak to me, make me feel comfort and not alone in a world that spins 360°C in the speed of light and everybody seems to only care about themselves. The new album “Be more kind” is not my favourite, but it certainly has the message we all need to hear.

If you haven’t heard of them, please go check them out on Spotify or Youtube or or or…

And if someday this review comes to the hand of the band I just want to say THANK YOU, with all my heart for saving my day, my year and really even my life a couple of years ago!
