Foals are set to play a six-date tour of the UK and Ireland in February of next year.
The band will kick off the run of shows at Dublin Olympia on February 4, playing Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and Newcastle before finishing up at London’s Alexandra Palace on February 14. Support on all dates will come from Cage The Elephant. Tickets go on sale at 9am [BST] on August 30.
Foals will play Reading and Leeds Festivals this weekend, and promoter Melvin Benn has said the band have been on his mind as a future headliner. In an interview with NME, he said that he considers Foals to be as good as any young band in Britain and that he was impressed by their recent headline set at Latitude.
“Foals for me are the most in touch guitar band in the world and I don’t think anybody’s matching them,” he said. “Listening to this new album, I had no doubts in my mind that I wanted them to come and headline.”
