It’s been three years since the Scottish band Franz Ferdinand last played in the U.S., but finally the wait is over! Franz Ferdinand announced a rare North American tour, and will be performing in several cities across the U.S. including Nashville, Louisville, New York City and Los Angeles this summer. They’re also making a few festival appearances at Hangout Music Festival in May, Governor’s Ball in NYC and Firefly Music Festival in June.

The last time the band toured North America was in support of their fourth critically acclaimed album, “Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action.” This is one tour you will NOT want to miss. The tour will be hitting Ohio not once, but twice! So be sure to grab your dancing shoes, and check out the dates below!
