Faith No More Member ‘Feels Horrible’ After Bad News


Faith No More recently made an announcement that all the planned shows for 2022 have been canceled. It was also previously announced in September that they would be nixing their upcoming U.S. tour dates. Keyboardist Roddy Bottum took to his Twitter account and broke his silence on the decision.

Roddy Bottum opens up on the decision

Taking to his Twitter account, Bottum noted the difficult times and asked the fans to support them. Here is what he wrote:

“it’s some rough times out there. I feel horrible bout all the FNM cancellations but trust… it’s for the best. Take care of yourselves and thanks so kindly for all your support.”

Vocalist Mike Patton had previously said that “due to mental health reasons, I cannot continue with the currently scheduled Faith No More and Mr. Bungle dates”, with the band supporting his decision to cancel touring plans: “We believe that forging ahead with these dates would have had a profoundly destructive effect on Mike, whose value to us as a brother means more to us than his job as singer,” they wrote.

“He can count on our 100 per cent support to do what he needs to do to get things right. Just as we also ask for your support right now.”

In a new statement posted on December 10, FNM confirmed that it’s not just U.S. dates that are affected, but also Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Europe, too.

“Unfortunately due to our current challenges, we aren’t going to be ready to perform for the upcoming Australian, New Zealand and UK / European tours,” they state. “To play at anything less than 100 per cent after so long is not an option for us. We apologise to all of you ticket holders, and are forever grateful to our fans for your support and understanding.”
