FRANK TURNER UNDERTAKES THE FIRST EVER MUSIC VENUE TRUST WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT FOR THE MOST GIGS PLAYED IN 24 HOURS ON MAY 4TH / 5TH

SPONSORED BY LONDON’S No. 1 TAXI APP FREENOW

IN SUPPORT OF GRASSROOTS MUSIC VENUES AND INDEPENDENT RECORD STORES

NEW ALBUM ‘UNDEFEATED’ IS OUT MAY 3RD

As he approaches two huge landmarks - his 3000th show and the release of his upcoming tenth album ‘Undefeated’ on May 3rd - Frank Turner today announces details of a unique challenge. On May 4th, he will embark upon the first ever Music Venue Trust world record attempt to play the most gigs in different cities in 24 hours by playing fifteen shows across the country.

The rules are simple. In a timeframe of 24 hours, Frank has to play 15 solo shows, with each set running for a minimum of 20 minutes. The previous (official) record is held by Hunter Hayes with ten shows and before that it was the Flaming Lips with eight. But there’s a serious point too. The challenge will support grassroots venues and independent record stores across the country. 

Frank’s effort will be supported by London’s No. 1 Taxi app FREENOW, who will be providing e-taxis for him to complete the almost 500 mile journey, which runs from Liverpool to Southampton.

Frank says, “With nearly 3000 shows under my belt, I’ve never been one to do things by halves or shirk a challenge - I once played all 50 American states in 50 days, for goodness sake. For the release of my tenth studio album, ‘Undefeated’, I will be making an attempt at a world record: the most number of shows in different cities in 24 hours.

It’s not just self-promotion either. We’re working with 13 independent record shops and 15 independent grassroots music venues for the shows, highlighting two bits of the infrastructure of the underground that I care about most. It’s going to be tough, but hopefully fun too. Come down for a show!”

Music Venue Trust CEO Mark Davyd adds, “We are delighted to support Frank Turner's attempt to set the official Music Venue Trust world record for the most gigs played in 24 hours. With the help of FREENOW black cabs, Frank will be criss-crossing the nation hitting some of the country's finest grassroots music venues for an action-packed day which promises to set the global standard for dedication to live music.”
