Franz Ferdinand Return To Further Conquer The US Next Month

The band that has dominated the hip crowd's iPods for the majority of the year and is now transitioning into almost full blown mainstream acceptance, will be headed back to the US in September for another round of tour dates. Riding the wave of momentum brought on by the nomination of the band's "Take Me Out" for both the Breakthrough Video and MTV2 Award, as well as the UK's esteemed Mercury Music Prize for their self-titled debut, Franz will be playing larger venues than on their last American trek. The flamboyant Franz boys are currently overseas, dancerocking it up for fans in Portugal, Spain, Holland, and the UK, but their US run will kick off in no time. It stretches from September 9 at NYC's Roseland to October 1 at the Docks in Toronto. Buy (or ask for) your tickets to these shows ASAP, as they are sure to sell out. Read on for the full itinerary.
