Highlight: The band certainly loved it and Bill Tweeted as much: “The Southside Festival was great…the crowd was rained on throughout the entire set, but stuck it out and made the show totally worthwhile”. Also Mike’s exhortation to the crowd: “Go back in your tents and fuck! Spread the disease.”

Videos: Again, like Hurricane, not many out there. I guess we’ll have to wait until the ZDF and arte TV programmes to get some. Here’s the You Tube search results again.

Photos: Gallery from Sudkurier here and one from Laut here. And below a snap of Jon Hudson’s set list I found on Flickr ((c) Retr0virg0).

Faith No More in Berlin: The Last Word

June 19th, 2009|The Last Word|0 Comments

Set list: 1.Reunited, 2.The Real Thing, 3.From Out Of Nowhere, 4.Land Of Sunshine, 5.Caffeine, 6.Evidence (in Spanish), 7.Poker Face/Chinese Arithmetic, 8.Surprise! You’re Dead!, 9.Easy, 10. Cuckoo for Caca, 11.Ashes to Ashes, 12.Midlife Crisis, 13.Introduce Yourself, 14.The Gentle Art of Making Enemies, 15. I Started a Joke, 16. King for a Day, 17. Be Aggressive, 18. Epic, 19. Mark Bowen. Encore 1: 20.Chariots of Fire/Stripsearch, 21.We Care A Lot. Encore 2: 22.Pristina.

Highlight: The mere fact that Faith No More performed at all and by most accounts performed a blinding set. First the area in which the concert was taking place was hit by a bomb scare after some World War 2 munition was found and then front man Mike Patton was hit by a leg injury but battled bravely and dominated the stage with typical Tigger-like ebullience. Oh and the wallet incident (1:20 here).

Video:
Only a small selection so far.

Faith No More at Rock in Idro: The Last Word

June 19th, 2009|The Last Word, Uncategorized|0 Comments

Set list: 1. Reunited, 2. The Real Thing, 3. From Out of Nowhere, 4. Land of Sunshine, 5. Caffeine, 6. Evidence (Italian), 7. Chinese Arithmetic (Poker Face), 8. Surprise You’re Dead, 9. Easy, 10. Ashes to Ashes, 11. Midlife Crisis, 12. Introduce Yourself, 13. Gentle Art of Making Enemies, 14. I Started a Joke, 15. King for a Day…, 16. Be Aggressive, 17. Epic. Encore: 18. Chariots of Fire/ Stripsearch, 19. We Care a Lot.

Highlight: Patton’s perfect Italian had the audience even more in the palm of his hand than usual and hs annointing of the crowd as judges in Italian Idol as he auditioned with Evidence in Italian (including the chorus unlike the previous Spanish version) brought the house down. His “I’m too old for this shit” drew laughs as the band returned for the encore.

Video: Check here and here.

Photos: Here as above for the video and a great black and white selection on Flickr and another wonderful colour collection on the same site. And another on Flickr.  And more.  And over 100 here from another Flickr user. Some truly great pics there.

Sample quote: “The curtain falls, with the regret of an ecstatic audience – still thirsting for Faith No More – conscious that they had seen one of those concerts that will be forever embedded in the memory of every lover of great rock music.”
