Bon Jovi are hoping rock sensations Franz Ferdinand will join them onstage when their world tour hits Scotland in 2006.

The KEEP THE FAITH hitmakers are huge fans of the Scottish chart stars since they heard breakthrough single TAKE ME OUT, and hope Franz Ferdinand will accept their invite.

Guitarist RICHIE SAMBORA says, "Whoever shows up at our gigs has to play- whether it be Elton John or Eric Clapton. It's like a big jam session whether they like it or not.

I think Franz Ferdinand are killer and I love their songs. We'd like to get them on stage to play with everyone."
