Following a raucously received show at Electric Picnic a couple of weekends ago, Franz Ferdinand haven't wasted any time announcing their return to an Irish show.

The Olympia will host the Scottish rockers on 23rd March next, their first Irish non-festival show since the release of the band's fourth album 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action' last August.

Recorded and produced over the last year with collaborators Mark Ralph, Alexis Taylor, Joe Goddard, Todd Terje and Bjorn Yttling, the LP cements their status as one of the more unique and adventurous British bands, who have enjoyed continued success since their breakthrough single 'Take Me Out' almost ten years ago.

Tickets for the show are on sale now, priced at €28.40.
