Rockers Franz Ferdinand have been added to the line-up for Scotland's T In The Park music festival this summer (JUL06).

Frontman Alex Kapranos is relishing the opportunity to perform on the same bill as his idols The Who and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS - more than the prospect of winning prizes at tonight's (15FEB06) Brit Awards ceremony.

He says,"Playing at Balado (Scotland) again will be one of the most fantastic festival appearances we'll ever have.

"All those gongs at things like The Brits are all very well but the real thrill for a band is standing on a stage in front of thousands of people who are absolutely loving it. I don't think anything can compare with the live performance.

"I've been a fan of The Who since I was a kid so I'd like to see them. The Red Hot Chili Peppers latest stuff is some of favourite tunes and they haven't played for ages."
