The line-up for Paris festival Rock en Seine will be officially unveiled tomorrow but French newspaper Le Parisien has confirmed the rumours we’ve already published: Faith No More will play at the festival on Saturday 29 August in their sole French date.

The Offspring are also on the Saturday bill, with Oasis, MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Bloc Party and The Prodigy also appearing over the course of the weekend.

Tickets priced at 45 euros for a day and 99 euros for the weekend go on sale tomorrow 9 April from 10am French time.

Faith No More played some of their last concerts in Paris in December 1997, when they played Lyon, Paris and Lille on the 8, 9 and 10 December.

Finally to two consequences of the Rock en Seine confirmation.

  1. Faith No More will definitely not be playing Eurockéennes festival in Belfort in early July
  2. Faith No More are in Europe for the long haul. All their previous confirmed dates had been for June, so a late August date opens up the prospect of more festival dates in Europe in July and August.
