Frank Turner: “Industry Politics Made Me Cancel Sonisphere Show”

 In an exclusive interview with FANCORE, Frank Turner has revealed that the reason he has pulled out of his Sonisphere Festival appearance in the UK is due to “Industry politics”.

Despite the folk/punk singer only being announced for the festival less than a month ago his departure from the bill has been mysteriously quiet. As previously reported, the news was broken with Frank’s name being stricken from the official line-up poster and a rather ambiguous messgae was posted above Turner’s name on the Sonisphere website, reading: “Unfortunately Frank Turner has had to pull out of Sonisphere due to circumstances beyond our control.”

Speaking to FANCORE, Frank has shed a little more light on the situation, saying: Oh, It’s just industry politics. I’m not 100% sure what I’m allowed to say about this, but basically there was an ego piss-war between some industry big-wigs, and I took the fallout. It sucks. Not much I can do about it though.”

Any ideas on who the ‘industry big-wigs’ could be? Regardless of whoever caused the mess, you can catch the UK singer/guitarist either on the road with The Offspring or see him on home soil when he returns later in the year. In Sonisphere news, the festival has just announced third stage details, to be headlined by Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Shawn ‘The Clown’ Crahan’s band ‘Dirty Little Rabbits’. The have also announced a cinema, extreme sports shows and a plethora of other entertaining events to keep you busy before Metallica. Read all about it HERE.

Check out the rest of Frank Turner’s interview in the first print issue of FANCORE, coming to you at the end of the month.
