In just ten minutes...

Foals have sold out historic London venue Alexandra Palace - in just ten minutes.

Clash met with Foals early last year, ostensibly to discuss their third album 'Holy Fire'. The band were clearly confident in their creation, freely dropping references such as Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath to drive the point home.

Since then, things have gone stratospheric for the Oxford group. A stunning performance at Glastonbury was followed by a headline set at Latitude, with each show finding the band gaining a higher and higher profile.

Announcing a headline tour, Foals decided to play London's Alexandra Palace. An enormous, imposing venue, tickets for the show went on sale this morning - and sold out in ten minutes.

A triumphant marker for the band, the rest of the tour followed suit. Foals are due to play Manchester Apollo on February 7th and it, too, sold out in only ten minutes with the rest of the days following within an hour.

Who says British guitar music is dead, eh?
