The Rock and Frontier Touring are stoked to announce Faith No More coming to Auckland and Christchurch.
These will be Faith No More’s first international gigs worldwide since 2015.
Unbelievably, the last time Faith No More performed their very own headline tour over here was 1997 – 23 years ago.
Frontier Members Pre-sale kicks off on Monday 10 February. General Public tickets to all shows will go on sale Wednesday 12 February via frontiertouring.com/faithnomore.
‘Epic’, ‘Falling To Pieces’, ‘Ashes To Ashes’, ‘Easy’, ‘Midlife Crisis’, ‘War Pigs’, ‘Digging The Grave’, ‘Sunny Side Up’... Faith No More’s pioneering, genre-defining career saw the band morph from cult underground heroes to boundary-pushing global chart-toppers, mixing metal to alt-rock to hip-hop to punk and much, much more.
Faith No More last toured the globe in 2015 ahead of the release of Sol Invictus, their seventh release and first album in 18 years. The disc debuted at #2 in Australia, #6 in New Zealand, and #6 in the USA and UK. Rolling Stone dubbed the 10-song album “triumphant”, The New Yorker called it “a reminder of everything that made Faith No More great in the first place,” and The Los Angeles Times said, “Faith No More has a history of defying expectations, and that’s what it’s doing again with Sol Invictus.”
“I think the world needs a little provocation right now. It’s a kind of dark, dark place out there, and I think that bringing our craft and our musical exploration to the planet can only be a good thing.” – Roddy Bottum,
