Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand were thrilled with the success of their concert exclusively for underage fans - because it gave kids the chance to see them live.

The band performed a matinee show for under eighteen-year-olds at Glasgow Barrowlands on Saturday (16OCT04) and were blown away by the response of the packed crowd of children, many as young as nine.

Frontman ALEX KAPRANOS says,"I thought, if we could do something like that it must make a big impact on someone's life. Kids don't really get to go to shows. You keep hearing that people are into the band but are only like eight years old."
