Coronavirus: Foals offer update on scheduled UK arena tour
Foals have given fans an update on the current status of their upcoming UK arena tour, as the coronavirus crisis continues to disrupt live events.
The Oxford group, who released their latest album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Pt.2’ last October, were due to hit the road on April 29.
With the planned dates edging closer, Foals have now told ticketholders that they “have been looking into the options” in regards to rescheduling, adding: “We hope to have news for you very very soon.
“Stay tuned & stay safe. Thanks for yr patience x,” they concluded the tweet earlier today (April 9). You can see the message below.

This comes after Foals were forced to postpone a number of shows in Japan due to the ongoing pandemic. The tour was set to begin in Nagoya on March 3.
Last month, Foals offered a timely reminder on the importance of handwashing with a new video for ‘Everything Not Saved…’ album track, ‘Wash Off’.
