Faith No More to blast New Zealand arenas this May

Finally after 10 years, Californian alt-metal troupe Faith No More have announced two rollicking concerts at Auckland's Spark Arena and Christchurch's Horncastle Arena, as part of their highly-anticipated New Zealand comeback this May. After their NZ dates, they'll be wrapping up events happening in Australia. The AU leg begins at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre before heading to Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena, Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena, Adelaide Entertainment Centre and Perth's RAC Arena.

"Faith No More have taken many twists and turns over the years, and both Australia and New Zealand have been with us every step of the way; this is something that we have always appreciated." – Bill Gould, Faith No More

After breaking onto the alt-metal scene in 1979, FNM (whose members are Mike Bordin, Roddy Bottum, Bill Gould, Jon Hudson, and Mike Patton) have released seven acclaimed albums to their name—'We Care A Lot' (1985), 'Introduce Yourself' (1987), 'The Real Thing' (1989), 'Angel Dust' (1992), 'King For A Day… Fool For A Lifetime' (1995), 'Album of the Year' (1997) and 'Sol Invictus' (2015). Since debuting, the group have been renowned for their classic hits of the '80s and '90s, including 'Epic', 'Falling To Pieces', 'Ashes To Ashes', 'Easy', 'Midlife Crisis', 'War Pigs' and 'Digging The Grave'. Through the years, their pioneering, genre-defining career saw them 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.

Joining FNM at all their shows are Australian post-punk band RVG who have recently released their roaring new single 'Alexandra' (2019). Having performed much-acclaimed gigs at 'SXSW', 'Roskilde Festival' and 'Meredith Music Festival', the band have made huge strides at home and beyond.

Lending their support following Australia's bushfire crisis, Faith No More will be donating $1 (plus GST) from each ticket sold across the AU/NZ dates to Animals Australia, and state fire services in affected areas, including: NSW Rural Fire Service, Country Fire Association VIC, SA Country Fire Service, Rural Fire Brigades Association QLD.

Watch out for tickets and let Faith No More astound you with their earth-shattering New Zealand comeback this May!
