After the cancellation of Sonisphere 2012, a few bands have confirmed to perform in the UK no matter what. Faith No More will headline London’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo on July 8th. Tickets for this event will go on sale Tuesday, April 24th.
Faith No More is not the only band to commit to the UK after the cancellation of the annual Sonisphere. Marilyn Manson and Incubus have scheduled shows, while Kiss, Wolfmother, and Evanescence are also looking for dates and venues to perform.
Faith No More hails from San Francisco, California and are considered one of the most influential metal acts from the late 80’s and early 90’s and credited with bringing alternative metal and nu-metal into the mainstream. Combining metal, funk, hip hop, progressive, and host of other genres their influence gave rise to bands like Limp Bizkit, Korn, and Sevendust. Even bands that achieved earlier and probably much more success like Guns N Roses, and Metallica credit Faith No More as one of their favorite acts. They were voted #52 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.
