The Second Coming Tour, also known as the Reunion Tour, is a concert tour by American rock band Faith No More from 2009 to 2012, and again since 2014. It was the group's first tour in more than a decade.

Overview[edit]

Rumours that Faith No More would reunite for shows in the U.K. in the summer of 2009 were circulating in late November 2008,[1] but were originally dismissed by bassist Billy Gould. He explained: "If anything like this were to happen, it would have to come from the band, and I haven't spoken with any of them in over a year. So as far as I know, there isn't anything to talk about, and I'm pretty sure that if you were to contact Patton, he would tell you the same thing."[2] However, on February 24, 2009 after months of speculation and rumors, Faith No More announced they would be reforming with a line-up identical to the Album of the Year era.[3] A prior statement from frontman Mike Patton's publicist suggested they would be touring Europe.[4]

In March 2009, it was confirmed that Faith No More would be headlining the Main Stage at the Download Festival in Donington Park, U.K. in June.[5] They were also confirmed for the Hurricane and Southside festivals in Germany,[6] Greenfield Festival in Switzerland,[7] Hove Festival in Norway and Roskilde Festival in Denmark,[8] among other dates. Shortly after the confirmation for the Download Festival appearance, the group rehearsed for the first time in over 10 years. Gould posted a comment on the rehearsal on his Twitter account saying that the band's "first rehearsal was good! Much better than expected. By the end of May we should be completely dialed in."[9] Asked if the band were planning any shows in the U.S., Gould stated that they were "not out of the question". However, when Patton was asked in April about the odds of a U.S. leg of the tour, he replied, "very slim."[10]

In April 2009, it was confirmed on the band's website that they would be appearing at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, before being taken down due to conflicting info.[11] In June, at their first show after their reunion they released new merchandise stating they were playing the festivals.[12]

The tour continued into 2010 with appearances at the Soundwave Festival in Australian cities throughout February and March.[13]

After an eleven month hiatus, Faith No More played four shows in South America in November 2011. On the first date (November 8, 2011), the band played a "mystery song," which leads to speculation of new material.[14]

Faith No More was supposed to headline the Sunday date (on July 8, 2012) at the Sonisphere Festival UK festival, which would have took place at the Knebworth House venue, but its organizers had to cancel the festival in March 2012.[15] However, they played Sonisphere France the day before.[16]

On July 4, 2014, Faith No More played their first show in two years at Hyde Park in London, supporting Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Motörhead and Soulfly.[17]
