The gig sold out in a matter of hours after it was announced in July.
Frontman Alex Kapranos was joined by the rest of the band on stage last night at the Glasgow University's Queen Margaret Union.
As previously reported by the Evening Times, fans had to apply for the chance to buy tickets for the long-awaited comeback gig.
Mixing new material with old recordings, the four-piece didn't disappoint their die-hard fans.
Franz Ferdinand formed in Glasgow, in 2002 with guitarist Nick McCarthy and drummer Paul Thomson joining Alex and Bob.
The band shot to fame two years later with their self-titled debut album, featuring hits such as Take Me Out and Jacqueline.
You Could Have It So Much Better followed in 2005
However, it was four more years before their third album Tonight: Franz Ferdinand.
Now the band are set to release their new album Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, on Monday.
The Glasgow gig came just a week after singer Kapranos collapsed after taking an allergic reaction to peanuts he ate at a gig.
He had to receive two emergency injections at the Sziget Festival in Budapest, Hungary, after accidently eating a dish which contained nuts.
Kapranos later recovered in time for his band's performance.
