Franz Ferdinand - 'Live on Letterman'
Franz Ferdinand are returning in August with Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, this first album since 2009, and last night (7/22) they came to NYC to tape an appearance on last night's The Late Show with David Letterman, where they performed "Right Action." After the taping, they stuck around the Ed Sullivan Theater to play a full set for the online series Live on Letterman. They played about half of the new album, and of course old favorites like "The Dark of the Matinee," "Ulysses," "Take Me Out," etc. Videos of both performances are below.
Franz are sticking around NYC for an album listening party at Glasslands tonight (7/23), which they'll also be DJing, along with guest DJ Liv Spencer. RSVP is closed. Their tour also brings them back to NYC for a live show on October 22 at Hammerstein Ballroom (tickets).
