Faith No More announce 2020 UK tour

The San Francisco band come to these shores for a handful of gigs in June.

Legendary rockers Faith No More have announced details of a forthcoming UK headline tour.

The new run of shows kicks off in Manchester on 10 June 2020, before heading to Glasgow, Birmingham and London.

On the new shows the band comment: “Five years, four colonoscopies, two root canals and a handful of prostate exams tell us that it’s time to carpe diem our asses back to Europe asap”.

Formed in San Francisco in the mid-eighties, Faith No More first found huge commercial success with their third studio album, 1989’s The Real Thing. 

The record was the first to feature the band’s current lead singer Mike Patton and features the fan favourite tracks War Pigs, From Out Of Nowhere, Falling To Pieces and Epic.

The band have released seven studio albums in total, with their latest effort Sol Invictus hitting the shelves in 2015 and debuting at No.6 on the Official UK Albums Chart.

Their first LP in 18 years, the record was also well-received critically with Rolling Stone describing it as “triumphant”, and the Los Angeles Times declaring “Faith No More has a history of defying expectations, and that’s what it’s doing again with Sol Invictus”. 

More of Faith No More’s best-known tracks include Midlife Crisis, Everything’s Ruined, Digging The Grave, Ashes To Ashes, I Started A Joke and their UK Top-5 cover of the Commodores’ track Easy. 

The group last toured Europe in 2015 where they performed a retrospective set at Download Festival alongside a handful of headline dates.

Now after five years away, Faith No More will return to the UK in summer 2020 for a brand new run of headline shows.

Here are the dates:

10 June 2020 – O2 Apollo, Manchester
11 June 2020 – O2 Academy, Glasgow
15 June 2020 – O2 Academy, Birmingham
16 June 2020 – O2 Academy Brixton, London

Tickets to see Faith No More on tour in June 2020 will be available from 10:00 on Friday 6 December 2019 through Ticketmaster.co.uk
