Franz Ferdinand Tickets & Tour Dates 2016
Franz Ferdinand are a Scottish indie-rock band hailing from Glasgow. The band first formed in 2002 but all of its members - frontman Alex Kapranos, guitarist Nick McCarthy, bassist Robert Hardy, and drummer Paul Thomson - all performed in bands prior to FF; Kapranos and Thomas both played together in Yummy Fur.
Just a year after getting together the band managed to make an instant impact on the UK charts, hitting 43 with their debut EP Darts of Pleasure, which hit shelves via Domino, with whom they signed their first record deal with. The band picked up the Phillip Hall Radar Award at the NME Awards 2004 (the first of many prizes they'd go onto win), and their first record followed soon after.
Self-titled, that record burst on to the UK Albums charts at number 3, and kick-started the band's major success both sides of the pond - they hit 32 in the US, and have been a Top 10 band there ever since. Franz Ferdinand is now 4x platinum in the UK, highlighting their popularity.
Since then they've released three more records, and have become known for their critically-acclaimed live shows, having toured the world extensively in support of their studio work. Best known for tracks 'Take Me Out' and 'Do You Want To', their latest record Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action hit shelves in 2013 - catch them touring the UK in March 2014.

Great to have you back FF!!!
London Electric Ballroom on August 20 2013
Superb gig, sleek and stylish stage set up - set was maybe a little too short considering the amount of material they have behind them. Great misx of old favourites and new songs kept London rocking, I forgot about how many hits they have had! They're definitely one of those band who are even better on the stage than in the studio. Always well worth seeing Welcome back Franz - loving the new album!
