Travis Singer Praises Other Scot Acts At Tsunami Concert

TRAVIS singer FRAN HEALY has praised rockers FRANZ FERDINAND for their performance at Scotland's Indian Ocean tsunami benefit concert at the weekend (19FEB05).

The WHY DOES IT ALWAYS RAIN frontman was amazed by the camaraderie between his fellow Scottish musicians as they took to the stage in front of the 10,000-strong crowd at the Glasgow charity gig - but was particularly impressed with the live form of the TAKE ME OUT group.

The event has raised $570,000 (GBP300,000) for victims of last year's (26DEC04) tragedy.

The 30-year-old says, "There was something so special about the night. I think it was special because there was a truly Celtic feel to it. It was a one-off, a thing that we've not really done before. I've just had a fantastic time.

"There was so much good feeling between Scottish bands. All the acts did well but the best part of my night was when Franz Ferdinand were on."
