Faith No More, unarguably* the greatest band ever, are returning to London for a one-off show at Hammersmith Apollo on 8 July.
The All Tomorrow’s Parties show comes after the cancellation of Sonisphere festival, where the rock legends were due to headline, and is their first London show since 2009’s Brixton Academy reunion gig.
They are maintaining their Album Of The Year line up of Mike Patton, Roddy Bottum, Billy Gould, Mike Bordin and John Hudson, who have been stunning the world during their reunion tour.
No new material will be aired, but considering every song they have is better than every other band’s anyway they don’t need to. (I’m a bit of a fanboy in case you hadn’t noticed- DN)
London is also hosting one-off shows by other Sonisphere acts: Marilyn Manson and Incubus headline Brixton Academy on 5 July and 9 July respectively and Queen play Hammersmith Apollo on 11 and 12 July, sadly without a T-Pac style hologram of Freddy Mercury.
*DN may be expressing his own opinion — but come on, he says, it’s Faith No More.
