Faith No More will return to Belgium this Thursday to play at Rock Werchter -arguably the largest music festival on the continent.
FNM replace the Foo Fighters, ruled out due to Dave Grohl’s leg injury. Glastonbury – this is how you replace the Foos.
Rock Werchter stated:
“Faith No More and Royal Blood graciously saved the day by marking their calendar on Thursday June 25th, which means a double dose of rock is added to the bill. Faith No More was in popular demand by the festival audience. The festival organisation is pleased to have added them to the Rock Werchter 2015 line-up in extremis.”
Faith No More will top the bill on Thursday – after Florence and the Machine, the replacement Glastonbury headliners.
And this article is brilliant from Werchter on how they went about replacing Foo Fighters. It includes this tidbit:
“For Faith No More, a Boeing is being chartered to get the band and their gear to Sweden in time for their next show on Friday 26 June.”
Faith No More placed Rock Werchter in 1993.
