Rockers Franz Ferdinand got caught up in a hostage situation in an American restaurant - but they were so busy eating they didn't realise they were in danger.

Singer Alex Kapranos and bassist BOB HARDY had gone for a bite to eat just before a gig in New Orleans, Louisiana - where they were playing a leg of their US tour.

At the time, a man who lived in a flat above the restaurant was holding his landlord at gunpoint and police descended on the building.

But Kapranos says, "We didn't realise until the cop cars and loudhailers appeared.

"The waiter in the restaurant kept popping in and out to keep us posted. He assured us that there was a seven-man SWAT team with rifles on the roof. There seemed no reason to doubt him.

"We ate our lunch and enjoyed it."
