Tickets to this one-off show were only available to winners of competitions run by the station – Vic Galloway having 2 pairs up for grabs on his show last Thursday.

Following the introduction “We're a group from Glasgow and we're called Franz Ferdinand” they played a set packed with songs old and new to a 700 strong crowd.

The set list included…
