Faith No More has announced they have rescheduled their arena tour dates for Australia, scheduled to take place this May, to 2021. New dates are set to happen in February and March 2021 due to coronavirus concerns and subsequent restrictions on mass gatherings. Tickets purchased for the previously planned shows will be valid for new dates, however, refunds will be available from Ticketek if you’re unable to make the new dates work.
