Three of the four bands get onstage together at the London Brixton Academy...

Franz Ferdinand, Rapture and Von Bondies formed an on-stage supergroup at their NME AWARDS TOUR stop last night in LONDON.

The tour is now coming to a close, with the final gig taking place this evening at Cardiff University (February 8).

Last night at the London Brixton Academy, Franz Ferdinand and Rapture joined Von Bondies on stage for a chaotic final number, ’It Came From Japan’.


The bands jumped about the stage and provided backing vocals on the song.

Speaking backstage afterwards, singer Jason Stollsteimer said he wasn’t expecting that much help during the band’s set.

He told NME.COM: “We’re all friends, there’s no ego in these bands. It was a fun thing to do.”

The gig was headlined by Funeral For A Friend, whose singer Matt Davies is still battling the flu which meant the band had to pull out of two shows earlier in the tour, in Sheffield and Liverpool.

Speaking backstage the singer said he’s determined to complete the rest of the tour regardless.
