Foals coming to the Ritz Ybor in Tampa
Check out this year's Glastonbury poster. Fourth from the top, right between Adele and Coldplay and Tame Impala and Beck, you'll find the name Foals.
The driving alt-rockers are huge stars in their native United Kingdom, as evidenced by their lofty placement at Glasto '16. And now they're coming to a much, much smaller venue: The Ritz Ybor in Tampa.
Foals will play the Ritz on Oct. 26, they announced Monday. Joining them are Bear Hands and Kiev. Ticket prices haven't been announced, but they'll go on sale Friday. Click here for details.
Foals may not be quite as massive stateside as they are back at home (although a 2015 tour with Cage the Elephant and Silversun Pickups certainly helped their visibility). But they'll still be playing in support of their 2015 album What Went Down, featuring the pummeling single Mountain At My Gates. So this intimate tour might help make them superstars in the United States, too.
