Franz Ferdinand played an exclusive show for XFM Presents with Ford Sync in aid of War Child at The Garage in North London last night (29 October).

The 75-minute performance saw the Glasgow four-piece alternated play seven tracks from their latest album, 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action'.

The band also played fan favourites such as 'The Dark Of The Matinee', 'Do You Want To' and 'This Fire'.

Another highlight was a cover of 'I Feel Love', spliced with 'Can't Stop Feeling', taken from the band's 2009 album 'Tonight: Franz Ferdinand'. Bassist Robert Hardy was not present. "He's in a better place—Glasgow," joked Kapranos. A friend called Scott stood in for Hardy.

Kapranos in particular seemed in good spirits. At the end of the new track ‘Evil Eye’, when the band stopped abruptly and unexpectedly, the singer winked at the crowd and laughed. Guitarist Nick McCarthy got in on the action falling backwards into the mosh pit during 'Michael'.

At the end of the main set, the band left the stage to shouts of "one more song". They returned to the stage to play recent single 'Right Action' and their 2003 debut single 'Darts Of Pleasure'.

Franz Ferdinand played:

'Bullet'
'The Dark Of The Matinee'
'No You Girls'
'Evil Eye'
'Do You Want To'
'Walk Away'
'Stand On The Horizon'
'Can’t Stop Feeling/'I Feel Love'
'Brief Encounters'
'The Fallen'
'This Fire'
'Take Me Out'
'Love Illumination'
'Michael'
'Ulysses'
'Goodbye Lovers & Friends'
'Right Action'
'Darts Of Pleasure'


The show was part of XFM Presents with Ford SYNC series in support of the charity Warchild, which helps children in warzones around the world.
