Tickets still on sale

Press previews:
Phillyist: “It’s a good thing the Mann doesn’t have doors, because if it did we have the feeling they’d be getting blown off.”
Philadelphia Inquirer: “As far as reunion shows go, this is one of the most welcome. At the very least, it’s the most bizarre.”
City Paper: “When Faith No More played the Tower back in October 1992, the show came to a memorable end when Mike Patton’s evening-long taunting finally led the audience to swarm the stage. Who could forget the image of Patton singing “The Crab Song” while crowd-surfing onstage, as the rest of the band dodged people diving from the tops of the Marshall stacks?”

Faith No More resumed their Second Coming tour last night in Brooklyn with their first US East Coast date since September 1997. Although the surprise one-off song promised by Bill did not materialise, it was another tight and tremendous performance by all accounts.
More to follow.

Reviews:
Rolling Stone: “With smiles all around and enthusiastic performances, the night ended with the attitude that as far as reunions go, this one seems pretty damn sincere.”
New York Press: “The band played ferociously until the end as if 12-plus years never passed, slowing down the pace with a take on the Commodores’ “Easy.” “Again, you’re looking in the wrong direction,” said Patton, staring at the red, white and blue Empire State Building.”
