Breakthrough indie-pop trio Foster The People make their highly-anticipated return to Philadelphia for an exclusive area performance Thursday, June 14th, 2012 at The Mann with special guests Tokyo Police Club and Kimbra.
The group whose debut album, Torches, features the alternative anthem & 3x platinum single “Pumped Up Kicks” as well as “Helena Beat” & “Houdini” has captured the attention of everyone in the music world from NME to MTV. Foster The People recently received two GRAMMY nominations for Best Alternative Album and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance as well as a nomination for the 2011 American Music Award’s “New Artist of the Year”.
Foster The People "in one year have gone from local favorite to a phenomenon," explains the LA Weekly, who was among the first to catch the band playing their residency to 200 fans at the Echo in January 2011. Since its release in May of 2011, Torches has sold over 1 million copies worldwide. This summer they will wrap up 18 months of touring by playing iconic amphitheaters around the country including Philadelphia’s Mann Center.
