Franz Ferdinand – Concorde 2, Brighton

Whenever I’ve seen Franz Ferdinand live I’ve usually been right at the back behind a 6’6″ audience – or so far away at a festival that I was practically in the next town. So when I got the chance to go to an “instore”, I thought I might have a chance of getting close to the front.

It was a Resident Records instore – moved to Concorde 2 on the seafront. Another new venue for me, and a great show as they ran through an hour of singles to promote their Hits To The Head compilation. Tickets were only £10 each, which included a CD copy of the album, which I had to pick up from the record shop. I wonder how many people, like us, weren’t able to go and get it. I’m not too worried as I have all the albums anyway …
