Watch: Frank Turner discusses the Paris terror attacks before Birmingham gig

Ahead of his gig at O2 Academy Birmingham this evening (November 18th,) local entertainment website I Am Birmingham caught up with Frank Turner, where he discussed the tragic Paris terror attacks.

Turner goes on to say he lost a friend in Nick Alexander at the Eagles of Death Metal’s show at The Bataclan on Friday November 13th and also knows many people who were hurt in the tragedy, but admits cancelling shows is never something he would do in response to the terrorists.

Frank Turner was in the city in support of his latest record, Positive Songs For Negative People.
