12 August – Istanbul
25 August – Glasgow
27 August – Dublin
28 August – Reading
30 August – Leeds
Hopes of a Faith No More appearance in Ireland seem to be receding with the news that they will not appearing at the boutique festival Electric Picnic as had been rumoured. The official line-up will be revealed later today and the reformed quintet will not be on it. With the line-up for Ireland’s other main festival Oxegen seemingly finalised, it looks like Irish fans are going to miss out.
