Foals play biggest London show yet

Oxford band complete tour on a high note

Foals completed the final night of their UK tour with their largest headline London show to date last night (March 17).

The Oxford band played a 50-minute set in front of a sold-out crowd at the Astoria, including recent Shockwaves NME Awards host Matt Horne and members of The Maccabees.

Speaking from the stage lead singer Yannis Philippakis said: “This is the last show of the tour, we’ve been looking forward to this show for a long time.”

Foals played:


‘The French Open’


‘Olympic Airways’


‘Heavy Water’

‘Two Steps, Twice’


‘Red Socks Pugie’

‘Electric Bloom’


‘Antidotes’, Foals‘ debut album, is released next Monday (March 24) – the band will celebrate by supporting R.E.M at London‘s Royal Albert Hall. The sold-out show is part of the ICA venue’s 60th birthday celebrations.

As previously reported on NME.COM the Astoria venue has lost its battle to remain open in its current form.
