A peek behind the scenes of interviews, photoshoots and tours.

Frank Turner UK tour - Oxford

Oxford Town Hall was the last gig of Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls' September UK tour.

The town hall is an amazingly beautiful place, completely different from the minimalist places I'm used to from Scandinavia. There were worries about how the sound would be in such a venue, but either way, it was visually stunning!

I’m pretty sure the sound will still be traveling around the room two weeks from now!

The soundcheck was quite late, so most of the day was spent either running around shops getting "thanks for a great tour" presents for the crew, and sitting around backstage.

Nigel Powell: "And if you look at the sun, you'll probably go blind". Ben Morse: "....."

Hats! I do love them!

Koo Koo Kanga Roo and their biggest fan.

This being the last day of the tour, the boys prepared a few surprises for the show, such as a guest appearance during Koo Koo Kanga Roo's gig.

The _almost_ birthday boy!

Of course, the Koo Koos had equal shenanigans in mind...

A good gig was followed by lots of hugs, goodbyes and see-you-agains, it's always sad knowing you might not see people again, at least not for a very long time.
