Faith No More adds 2 Coachella warm-up shows at San Francisco’s Warfield

Faith No More, circa 2009

The reunited Faith No More is now set to make its American debut with a pair of hometown concerts at San Francisco’s historic Warfield Theatre in the days leading up to the band’s much-anticipated appearance at April’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.

Faith No More — featuring Mike Bordin, Roddy Bottum, Billy Gould, (Chuck Mosley replacement) Mike Patton and Jon Hudson, one of the late-’90s fill-ins for Jim Martin — are scheduled to headline the Warfield on April 13 and 14; the band’s website reports the second date already is sold out, although Ticketmaster shows both going on sale at 10 a.m. PST Sunday.

The band then is slated to play April 17 at Coachella, which also will feature sets by high-profile reunions from The Specials and Public Image Ltd. Like FNM, the Specials also have announced other dates around the festival; it’s unclear whether John Lydon’s PiL, which toured the UK in December for the first time in 17 years, will do the same.

Faith No More reunited last year after 11 years, declaring, on its website, “time has afforded us enough distance to look back on our years together through a clearer lens and made us realize that through all the hard work, the music still sounds good, and we are beginning to appreciate the fact that we might have actually done something right.”

The band played a number of European and South American festivals and concerts last year (see live video below), and this month ventures to Australia and New Zealand before returning stateside for its Warfield and Coachella dates.
