Franz Ferdinand @ L' Album de la Semaine Feb 3rd 2009

Franz Ferdinand @ "L' album de la semaine" to promote their newly released album " Tonight "
In Fact this show was recorded for the tv show " Concert Privé " for Canal+ , it's the same setting ( a small studio for 200 people sitting in stalls in front of the stage ) but the band instead of playing 5 new songs + a couple of their hits is playing a proper gig with 12 songs.
So that's really cool.
The gig starts a bit late as the band is doing an interview ...
And here we go for almost an hour of a neat performance , not that much communication with the audience , i guess they focus on their instruments as it's recorded.
Not that much to say :Great show but Franz Ferdinand is always very good live.
Half of the set ( see setlist )consists of new songs and they sound really good live even though i'm not too fan of their new-wave sound with keyboard.
Great performance i'm looking forward to see them tonight ... again
Sorry no live pictures as it's forbidden
