The Second Coming Tour[1] (also known as the Reunion Tour) is a current concert tour by American rock band Faith No More. It is the act's first tour in more than a decade.

Overview

Rumours that Faith No More would reunite for shows in the U.K. in the summer of 2009 were circulating in late November 2008,[2] 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."[3] 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.[4] A prior statement from frontman Mike Patton's publicist suggested they would be touring Europe.[5]

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.[6] They were also confirmed for the Hurricane and Southside festivals in Germany,[7] Greenfield Festival in Switzerland[8], Hove Festival in Norway and Roskilde Festival in Denmark,[9] 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."[10] 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. Faith No More tour, he replied, "very slim."[11]

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.[12] In June, at their first show after their reunion they released new merchandise stating they were playing the festivals.[13]

The tour has continued into 2010, with the band headlining the Soundwave Festival in Australian cities throughout February and March and playing four US and two European dates.[14]
