Tonight Frank Turner and an extended version of his backing band, the Sleeping Souls, will play at the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony. Turner will play three songs to an estimated audience of 200,000--plus an expected 25 million BBC viewers.
Says Turner, "Being asked to play the Opening Ceremony was something I never imagined was going to happen in my wildest most feverish dreams; but the fact that Danny Boyle asked me personally, as a fan, convinced me to do it. It's a pretty terrifying prospect, but I'm secretly pretty happy to be part of it, it's a once-in-a-lifetime thing."
Turner last released England Keep My Bones in 2011, and has spoken with Scene Point Blank multiple times in the past (visit our Interviews page for more).
