Now you would think after 20+ hours in transit that I would have been to bed very early this evening. However you would have been wrong because instead I went to see Franz Ferdinand at the Palace Theatre with Tash. The opening acts were Red Riders and The Temper Trap, who really impressed me with their anthemic songs.
Franz Ferdinand took the stage to huge cheers from the sold out crowd. They played many of the hits from their first and second albums, which had the crowd singing along. "Take Me Out" received a massive reaction from the whole theatre as everyone bounced around to the song. The guys were very smart with their set list as they sprinkled in new songs from the upcoming album throughout the night, and they sounded great and fit right in with the catalogue. The concert was absolutely fantastic and ended with Alex, the lead singer, jumping into the audience and crowd surfing back to the stage for his final bow with the rest of the band.
