The Dutch blogosphere has been buzzing with speculation that Faith No More will play the Pinkpop festival in the Netherlands in May 2010. Not a lot of detail in the two stories at Rockblog and FOK but regular Netherlands-based commenter tbeest reckons Rockblog may have inside information from a family member of the festival organiser.
We’ll keep you posted if and when we hear more news but the rumour certainly comes right from out of the blue with much of the recent FNM speculation centering on when they would be announcing the promised US dates. Could Roddy’s Mystery Leg actually be another European festival jaunt in May and June?
Otherwise, the Coachella festival forums continue to reverberate with chat of an FNM appearance at the famed Californian festival in April while there have also been inevitable murmurs of a joint FNM/Soundgarden tour.
In site news, I will be upgrading and relocating the site in the next week or ten days but I’ll make sure to give plenty of notice. Anything new you’d like to see on the site?
For those of you you have yet to sign up to the Faith No More mailing list, here is the latest update:
First of all, yeah, we know we’ve had this mailing list for awhile now; to be exact, we’ve been collecting your names since May! Nevertheless, we’ve been hard at work: two tours of Europe and one of South America. Plus, we’ve tried to keep this whole endeavor as honest as possible; we haven’t employed any so-called “street teams” for viral marketing on forums, etc, and we’ve done our utmost to try to stick to the no-interviews policy, in order to keep the focus centered around the shows and the music.
However, although we’ve been relatively quiet on a media level, that is not to say that we haven’t appreciated the 1000% percent support we’ve received from our fans. Truly, these shows have exceeded our expectations, and a big part of it has come from the amazing energy of the audience. It’s been a real shot in the arm, and made this worthwhile for all of us. We honestly had no idea what was going to happen when we got into this, and are humbly overwhelmed by your attention and praise and good will.
So, here’s a big THANK YOU for 2009, and a wish that 2010 is a productive, prosperous and happy one for all of you!!
