After the band released a statement last week, this is the first date confirmed by Faith No More thus far. Live Nation VP of Promotions Andy Copping says of the news: “Faith No More were the band that started the whole alternative music scene. To have them play for the first time in eleven years exclusively at Download is amazing! They had so many huge hits, I can’t wait to see the set list – We Care A Lot, From Out Of Nowhere, Epic, Falling To Pieces, Midlife Crisis, A Small Victory, Digging The Grave and not forgetting their awesome covers of Black Sabbath’s War Pigs and The Commodores’ Easy. They are one of my favourite bands of all time and being able to see them headline at Donington will be unbelievable. This is like the second coming of Christ!”
Download will take place on June 12th – 14th at Donington and will feature sets from Slipknot, Def Leppard, Whitesnake, The Prodigy, Limp Bizkit, Motley Crue, Marilyn Manson, Korn, ZZ Top and many, many more.
