UK indie band Foals have announced a new UK Tour for the 2016 calendar year. This new tour is following their acclaimed fourth album ‘What Went Down’ which was released in late August 2015.
As mentioned their latest album has been a massive success, reaching third in the charts. However this is of little surprise as Foals previous album ‘Holy Fire’ was critically acclaimed world wide, eventually being nominated for the 2013 Mercury Prize.
Foals will be playing across numerous places in the UK in February 2016, see the full list of dates and venues below:
February 12th – Glasgow – Hydro
February 13th – Manchester – Arena
February 17th – London – Wembley Arena
February 19th – Birmingham – Barclaycard Arena
February 20th – Leeds – First Direct Arena
Foals are widely considered to be one of the best live bands around; having won the 2013 Q Award for Best Live Act and have been nominated for the NME Award for best Live Act in both 2011 and 2013. So you can imagine that when tickets go on sale for the tour (7th October 9am, on sale here) they will fly off the shelves; this is further reiterated by the fact that their current global tour is entirely sold out.

Foals will also be joined on their UK and Ireland tour by fellow indie rock band Everything Everything.
Everything Everything are facing a continued growing reputation within the music world, following their release of their third album ‘Get to Heaven’ earlier this year in June. ‘Get To Heaven’ was a follow up on their very successful ‘Arc’ in 2013, which was nominated for three separate Ivor Novello awards.
‘Get To Heaven’ has so far been met with critical acclaim, with ‘Clash’ website saying that:
“That such truly intelligent, even challenging, music is on the cusp of being well and truly blasted into the popular consciousness of an entire nation is truly wonderful.”
The prospect of one ticket buying you the opportunity to see both Foals and Everything Everything is certainly a mouth watering one. See single ‘What Went Down’ from their new album below:
