GLASGOW, UK Friday Sep.24.2004 / -- It's official. Franz Ferdinand has completed phase one of its plan for world domination by selling out all US shows on the current tour. In light of America's demand for the Scottish four-piece, many of the stateside concert promoters obtained special permits to allow them to increase the audience capacity for the shows.

In other Franz news, the band advanced to the finals for the Shortlist Music Prize and, earlier this month, Franz Ferdinand won the UK's Mercury Music Prize. Franz Ferdinand also nabbed four nominations for Britain's 2004 Q Magazine Awards.
