Foster The People tickets - Foster The People tour dates

Foster The People Schedule

With Foster The People's breakout smash, Pumped Up Kicks, there isn't a person who can listen to it and not get caught up in the infectious music. Labeled an indie pop band, Foster The People, emerged onto the music scene only a few years ago, but quickly gained a large following. With upcoming shows in Indio, Las Vegas, Nashville, Kingston, Tulsa and Dallas, just to name a few, Foster The People are able, willing and ready to give fans a show they won't soon forget!


Foster The People Background

Mark Foster, founder of Foster The People, came to L.A. after graduating from high school in the burbs of Cleveland, Ohio. Living with an uncle, Foster took on various jobs, and at night, with guitar in hand, he took to the Hollywood Hills to hit the parties and expand his social network. He spent a few years doing whatever was necessary to get by and eventually scored a job as a commercial jingle writer. Foster said of the profession, "I definitely learned from the commercial standpoint what works."

Foster, along with fellow band mates Mark Pontius and Cubbie Fink, recorded a song that Foster had penned, Pumped Up Kicks, and it was to be the breakthrough song they were waiting for. Drawing considerable attention, the song was posted as a free download on Foster's website in 2010. In January 2011, Foster The People released its first commercial non-single release. The eponymous EP, which featured Pumped Up Kicks, Houdini and Helena Beat, was intended to tide fans over until their first studio album, Torches, was completed. Fans who bought the EP through the iTunes Store were able to apply it towards the purchase of their full-length debut album. The EP garnered much attention from organizers of the South By Southwest Festival, as well as execs looking to license music for upcoming season finales of TV series. All three of the tunes were used in various TV shows and movies, from Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, Friends with Benefits and Entourage. Columbia senior director of creative licensing Jonathan Palmer said, "I haven't seen this kind of a range of song licenses from one album since we worked the first Ting Tings record three-and-a-half years ago." January 2011 also saw many alternative radio stations begin playing Pumped Up Kicks, from local L.A. stations KROQ-FM and KYSR to satellite radio's Sirius XM Alt Nation channel. Foster credits Sirius XM's airplay with the song's success, saying, "Alt Nation played our music before any other radio outlet in the country." Pumped Up Kicks proved to be a crossover hit, charting across several different radio formats. Not only did the song hit No. 1 on the Alternative Songs chart, but went No. 3 on the Rock Songs chart. The song pierced all Top 40 charts. Lee Leipsner, Columbia senior VP of promotions, said, "It was one of the only alternative bands I remember in a while that you could actually dance to. And the fact that the record has a groove and rhythmic feel to it - not heavy guitar-based at all - gave us a wide opportunity to cross the record."


Foster The People Hit Albums and Awards

Torches was released in May 2011, and the band, and their debut album, earned nods for two Grammy Awards that year.

Supermodel will be released through digital retailers on March 18, 2014. Its first single, Coming of Age, was digitally issued on January 14, 2014. The group promoted the single by releasing a time-lapse music video of a seven-story mural of the Supermodel album cover being painted in downtown L.S. Young and Sick, who also designed their artwork for Torches, designed the mural. It took just 10 days to complete. And just on January 23, 2014, the band played a free show in front of the mural.


Foster The People Trivia and Fun Facts

Mark Foster originally named the band, Foster & the People, but people misheard it as - Foster The People. Foster liked the nurturing image it evoked and the name stuck. The band has played with music greats such as The Beach Boys and Maroon 5. They also have made appearance on many late-night talk shows, including Last Call with Carson Daly, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. On October 8, 2011, the band appeared on Saturday Night Live as the musical guest and performed, Pumped Up Kicks along with Houdini. Kenny G appeared and played alongside them on the Houdini song.
