rushonrock fave and punk rock troubadour Frank Turner has gone and bagged the biggest gigs of his career to date after global superstars Green Day handpicked the singer/songwriter to open up their summer stadium shows in the UK.

The former Million Dead man joins Joan Jett on an increasingly eclectic bill at Manchester’s Old Trafford cricket ground and Wembley Stadium in June. And once again Turner is facing up to an incredibly busy summer after adding two massive shows to an already packed 2010 touring itinerary.

Frank will be playing to a potential crowd of 110,000 people across the two nights in London and Manchester and a spokesperson said: “He’s chuffed to bits to say the least.”

Turner plays Manchester LCCC on June 16 and Wembley Stadium on June 19 having just completed his first ever tour of Australia and China. This summer he headlines Wood and 2000trees, delivers a main stage set at Latitude, plays T In The Park, two sets at Glastonbury and the NME/Radio1 Stage at Reading and Leeds. And if that wasn’t enough he’s on the Lollopalooza bill, plays Galgory Folk Festival and a whole load of shows across Europe.
