Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls had the honor of playing one of the biggest shows ever and played the Opening Ceremonies at The London Olympics. Must be pretty cool to be asked by director Danny Boyle! Watch the video after the jump:
Hand-picked by the Artistic Director for the ceremony Danny Boyle, Frank was asked to play three songs as part of the event to an estimated audience of almost 200,000 people in the stadium over 2 nights of rehearsals and opening night itself.
Frank says: “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.”
