British rockers Hard-Fi were terrified their tour bus would be set alight by rioters in Paris, France, last month (OCT05).

The band were followed around the city by groups who began protesting violently after two youths were electrocuted while hiding from police in an electricity sub-station.

Singer RICH ARCHER says, "They started up when just when we got to Paris and followed us all around.

"We were worried our bus would get set on fire but it was certainly interesting to be present as history was actually happening."
