(UPDATE 4/7) Late last month, punk outfit Refused announced a slew of intimate dates across the U.S. this summer, but on Tuesday the band announced that it will join Faith No More as a supporting act for seven upcoming shows in July and August.
The joint run of shows begins on July 30 at the Masquerade Music Park in Atlanta. It will wind around the U.S. through April 7, when it wraps at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto. Among the short list of dates is a stop at Madison Square Garden in New York City on August 5.
Faith No More will be traveling across North America and Europe all summer long. The band’s tour officially starts on April 15 at the PNE Forum in Vancouver and will hit Europe in May and June. The second North American leg concludes in Toronto on August 7.
FNM will bring a bevy of support out on its five-month road stint. Alongside Refused, Christeene, La Plebe, Frightwig, HO9909, The Urinals, Flatbush and Le Butcherettes will all appear on select dates.

Leading Into The Nearly Sold Out Tour, Faith No More Tickets Averaging $115 On Resale Markets
(3/27) We knew Faith No More's North American tour would be big, however we didn't expect every date on the tour to sell out within days. Even after adding extra dates in cities like LA and San Francisco, the sellout streak remained. As of this writing, only April 22nd at the Wiltern has primary tickets available.
With nearly all dates on the tour now sold out, a healthy – if unfair secondary market has formed. Smart brokers realized Faith No More's cult following and snatched up plenty of the General Admission tickets and are flipping them for up to 4 times face price.
Of particular note are the two shows at New York's Webster Hall on May 13th and 14th. Tickets for these performances start at $145 and $154 respectively, with over 100 tickets available for each date. Boston's Orpheum Theatre has also surpassed a $100 get-in, at $114. Overall, these three dates create an average asking price of $115 on the secondary market. If you take those dates out of the equation, the average asking price is $92.44 – still double the average face price of the tour.
Fans in LA seem to be the only lucky ones this Spring, as the addition of shows at the Wiltern has dropped prices across the board, and some listings for April 23rd and 24th are available for below face price.
