    Gig-goers just cannot stop talking about this show. One of the UK's most exciting rock bands gave us a night to remember last Friday as Foals took over the Barclaycard Arena - here's 'What Went Down'….

    For starters, just take a look at that set list…

    My Number, Balloons, London Thunder, Mountain At My Gates, What Went Down…the list just goes on and on – the lads nailed it!

    The gig was not only popular with you guys, but in our offices too with loads of our staff from different departments heading over to the Barclaycard Arena for an unforgettable night!

    “In all honesty they were excellent. For the first time in the arena they didn’t disappoint. The 2 guests we had who’d never heard them loved it. We sat next to the drummer from Radiohead and he was raving about them. Foals have become fully thoroughbreds!!!!” Gareth, Commercial.

    Our Twitter feed on Friday night (and throughout the weekend) was crazy, full of people still raving about just how good Foals were! 

    @Anna_king: "Had the best night seeing @foals @BcardArena #Birmingham with @farmercully#FoalsBham"

    ‏@tweetallymac: "Well @E_E_ just blew me away in Birmingham with @foals! Get in lads!"

    @ChrisN18T: "Amazing gig and so many more to come this year foals #inhaler #foals @ Barclaycard Arena Birmingham"

    Easily one of the best gigs this year (yes, I know it's only February) - this show will take some beating, the electricity that Foals brought to the arena will be difficult to match. What a band.
