Franz Ferdinand and Sparks to tour together as FFS

Acts announce summer live dates, including festival appearances plus London and Glasgow gigs

Franz Ferdinand and Sparks have teamed up for a series of live dates in Europe this summer.

The two acts are operating under the name FFS with a short video previewing a song called ‘The Domino Effect’ released today alongside the gig details.

FFS will play their first ever gig at Glasgow Arts School on June 16 before playing the much larger Troxy in London on June 29. Gigs in Zagreb, Brussels and Paris will fall between the two as well as festival appearances at Benicàssim, Slovakia’s Pohoda and Lollapalooza in Berlin.

Further European dates in July follow, with gigs in Lyon, Amsterdam and Cologne all scheduled. Tickets for the UK shows go on sale on Friday (March 13) at 9am.

Franz Ferdinand released their most recent album, ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’, in 2013. Sparks remain an active live band and released ‘The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman’ in 2009.
