Celebrating 20 years of music together, Glasgow, Scotland’s Franz Ferdinand brought their aptly titled “Hits to the Head” tour to Toronto on August 17.

The setlist–and the greatest hits compilation of the same name–drew from the band’s five studio albums, including hits and fan favourites such as “Do You Want To,” “Take Me Out,” “This Fire” and “The Dark of the Matinée.”

Massachusetts rock band Vundabar served as the opening act, with Toronto being the final stop acting as support for Franz Ferdinand.
