Celebrating the album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part Two’, Brit-indie-pop band the Foals will be in Japan for three nights – starting in Nagoya, then Osaka before a finale in Tokyo. With six albums under their belts, the foursome have toured extensively since starting in 2005 (albeit with a slight lineup change). With the first and second parts of their album released in quick succession in 2019, the 2020 dates will be hot on the heels so it’s a good idea to get familiar with the later releases. The band are strong live performers, having won the Q Award for Best Live Act back in 2013 and nominated twice for NME’s version.
The gig will be at the Shinkiba Coast venue next to/part of the Ageha complex.
