Faith No More to play Spain in July

March 3rd, 2010|Tour dates|17 Comments

The reunion goes on.  Faith No More will return to Europe in July 2010 when they play the Sonisphere festival in Getafe, Spain (13km south of Madrid). The festival is scheduled for 9 and 10 July and joining FNM will be Rammstein, Megadeth, Alice in Chains, Slayer and many more. No day by day breakdown as yet but tickets will go on sale on 8 March.

There is a string of Sonisphere dates across Europe this summer, many with Metallica headlining. Comparing to the lineup of the Switzerland Sonisphere I’m going to in June, FNM and Rammstein are effectively replacing Metallica.

Mike Patton to play Amsterdam festival

March 2nd, 2010|News|22 Comments

According to the Holland Festival official website, Mike Patton will return to Europe in June for a sole date at the festival. Billed as a “full-length programme centred on Luciano Berio’s masterpiece Laborintus II, Laborintus II: Mike Patton, Luciano Berio” the performance will take place on 18 June at the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ.
The website description reads: “Mike Patton is not one to shy away from experiments. The frontman of Faith No More guest stars in a programme featuring Luciano Berio’s 1965 masterpiece Laborintus II, a modern concert chamber opera based on works by Dante, TS Eliot and Ezra Pound. Ictus, the Nederlands Kamerkoor and video-collective Visual Kitchen support Patton and his musical guests. Laborintus II mixes a whole range of musical styles, from dramatic opera to ‘60’s European jazz. After the break Patton will hold an improvisation session with a host of greats from the international jazz scene. The evening is rounded off with a steaming DJ-set inspired by Italian B-movies.” Full details here. You can also order tickets from that link and full ticket details are here.
