Foals More Dates Added To Sold Out Feb 2014 UK Tour

Foals have sold out London's Alexandra Palace and Manchester Apollo - Glasgow Barrowlands, Newcastle o2 Academy, Birmingham o2 Academy and Dublin Olympia shows also sold out within one hour.
 
Due to incredible demand, new dates have been added:  a second Alexandra Palace 15th Feb, second Manchester o2 Academy 8th Feb, second Dublin Olympia 5th Feb.  Glasgow Barrowlands has been upgraded to Glasgow o2 Academy.
 
This incredible accomplishment is testament to the bands' popularity and growing reputation as the most exciting live band in the UK right now.  Fresh from a glowing main stage performance at Reading & Leeds festival, Foals
 
Summer of 2013 has been Foals' busiest and most prolific to date.  After releasing their most direct and fully realised third album 'Holy Fire' to critical acclaim in February this year (charting at number 2), the Oxford five piece have since unleashed a feverish assault on live audiences worldwide. America, Europe, Asia, Australia have all witnessed the band's electrifying live show that's earned them the reputation as the most exciting British guitar band in Britain.
 
Relentless playing to huge audiences has seen the band hit their stride in the live sphere, and subsequently won them slots high up the bill at Glastonbury (second from top, Other stage Friday night), Reading & Leeds (third from top, Main stage Saturday) and recently, their first ever UK headline slot at Latitude festival (Sunday) a position they strode into with conviction resulting in effusive praise from the critics.  Reading & Leeds/Latitude Promoter Melvin Benn recently summed his feelings on the performance:
 
Special guests on almost all dates on this tour will be US alt rock five-piece Cage The Elephant.  Cage, who have been hand-picked for this slot by Foals have gained a huge fan base in the US & Europe due to their manic, high octane live shows, and hits such as "Shake Me Down", "Ain't No Rest For The Wicked" and "Back Against The Wall".  Cage The Elephant recently announced the release of their third studio album, entitled 'Melophobia', which will be released in October via Virgin/EMI Records"
