The Second Coming Tour is the seventh concert tour by American rock band, Faith No More. The tour supported their sixth greatest hits album, The Very Best Definitive Ultimate Greatest Hits Collection (2009). The tour primarily visited Europe with additional shows in Asia, Australasia and the Americas. Beginning in June 2009, the tour played over fifty shows, with a majority being an appearance at a music festival. It marks the band's first tour after over a decade hiatus.

Background

Faith No More performing at Sudoeste

The band garnered media attention, when talks of a tour in the United Kingdom began to circulate in November 2008.[1] These rumors were later dismissed by bassist Billy Gould. He stated:

"If anything like this were to happen, it would have to come from the band, and I haven't spoken with any of them in over a year. So as far as I know, there isn't anything to talk about, and I'm pretty sure that if you were to contact Patton, he would tell you the same thing."[2]

On February 24, 2009, the band announced they were reforming with the same lineup during their 1997 album era.[3] This announcement was following by a statement from the band's publicit hinted at a European tour.[4] A month later, it was revealed the band was the headlining act for the Download Festival. News of other festival appearances later followed.[5] The band posted pictures on their social media for their rehearsals for the tour.[6] With more shows in Europe revealed, many fans wondered about shows in North America. Gould mentioned the thought of touring the US was "not out of the question" but chances were slim, as there was heavy demand elsewhere. [7]

The tour officially ended in March 2010. However, the band continued to tour throughout the year and into 2012 with several one off concerts and festival shows in the United States and Europe.
