Alert your favourite rockdog uncle right this moment that his favourite band, Faith No More, just announced their first headlining Australian tour in more than two decades.
The heavy music juggernauts will hit up Auckland and Christchurch in early May, before swinging by Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth.
If the premise of catching one of the biggest rock bands of the past three decades wasn’t quite enough to entice you, cop this: the Sydney Morning Herald reports Faith No More has pledged to donate a dollar from each ticket sold towards Animals Australia and state firefighting services.
And that’s on top of the sold-out gig they’re playing at the 02 Apollo in Manchester in June, which will direct all proceeds to WIRES Wildlife Rescue and the CFS Foundation.
Faith No More were last in Australia for Soundwave Festival in 2015, but have not been over here for a headlining tour in 23 years.
