Franz Ferdinand are set for European dates with U2 on 'Vertigo 2005'.

The Scottish art rockers, whose self-titled debut album won huge acclaim in 2004, are confirmed to play support to U2 at shows in San Sebastian (August 9th) and Madrid (August 11th).

We also hear that Snow Patrol have added more dates when they will be on the road with U2 - now supporting on EIGHT shows this summer.

They will be performing in Brussels (June 10th), Manchester (June 14th), Dublin (June 24th), Berlin (July 7th), Paris (July 9th and July 10th) and Amsterdam (July 15th and 16th).
