…and the singer is making sure they’re not disappointed.
In a heartfelt message to his Aussie fans, Frank has announced two free – yes FREE – acoustic performances in Sydney and Melbourne, together with an autograph signing session in each city:
“Dear Australian friends, I’m so sorry soundwave 2016 got cancelled. I know you must be super bummed, but believe me, the feeling is mutual! I was really looking forward to getting to play for you all. I mean hell I love Australia… in fact I love it so much I thought fuck it, I’m coming anyway! So I’m bringing my brother Evan, and a couple of guitars and we’re gonna play some songs for you and sign some records and hang out for a few days in whatever places that will let us … because we don’t need a festival ground to make a memory. see you soon.” xofrnk
The events will take place on January 28th and 29th respectively.
Both will be open to fans of all ages and feature the man himself performing unplugged renditions of songs off his band’s debut LP, Stomachaches.
