It’s been a while since Franz Ferdinand properly toured. Sure they played the festival circuit here and there, but they have been long overdue for a proper North American tour. Well with new album Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action coming out via Domino on August 27 that time is now.
They make their return to the states starting on October 4, and stop in NYC on October 22 to play Hammerstein Ballroom. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 11 a.m. (eastern time). – You can actually get tickets now via the live national presale on the site. Just enter in the password “PICNIC”. Good luck.
Find the full set of tour dates below. You don’t want to miss these guys live. Just hearing the triumph of “Take Me Out” live is worth the price of admission alone.
