April 27th, 2018|Faith No More|6 Comments

Faith No More played the Hammersmith Odeon on the 27 April 1990, on the first of two career-defining nights in London. It was the band’s fourth UK tour in the space on 10 months, and they were at the peak of their popularity and power. They would play Brixton Academy, where You Fat Bastards was filmed, the following night, playing to almost 9,000 people in London over two nights.

Here is audio of the Hammersmith show:

And, of course, you can read all about this historic tour in the Faith No More biography Small Victories, available for pre-order now.

1997

Faith No More play Air and Style event in Innsbruck, Austria

Faith No More played one of their more unusual gigs at a snowboarding competition at the Bergisel Stadium in Innsbruck. FNM were joined on the bill by Bad Religion and played a short set in the snow between some competitive boarding and was broadcast live on MTV. No video footage seems to exist now however but we have this audio snippet via Bungle Fever while the pic of a parka-clad Patton is one for the ages.

1989
Faith No More play Ybor in Florida

Barely a trace of this gig exists at The Masquerade Club. The St Petersburg Times previewed the gig on 1 December. Anyone got any more info?
The paper’s gig preview was: “Wednesday, Faith No More – According to Slash Records publicity material, Axl Rose of Guns ‘N Roses says Faith No More is “by far the best band I’ve ever seen. I’m jealous”. Kirk Hammet of Metallica touts the band’s current The Real Thing as “the best album of the year”. With a big, metal-edged sound – that mixes in touches of rap – FNM is a hot ticket on alternative college radio. Life and Death opens at Masquerade in Ybor City, 8 p.m. “

2010
The “last” Reunited show

As edufig pointed out on Twitter we deliberately left out the 2010 Santiago show from our 5 December retrospective.
Fortuitously the Holy Filament have just uploaded the whole show on Vimeo:

Part of a new and possibly recurring series:

1997
Faith No More play Luzhniki in Moscow
One of the last shows of the Faith No More 1.0 era  – and the band’s second in Russia.
The inestimable Negele database includes an fan’s report: “The band live are excellent; the sound was great and the new guitar player fits in pefectly, although they didn’t play some very good songs from other albums like Evidence, Caffeine, Digging The Grave, Surprise! You’re Dead! or Ricochet but if the band played all the good songs they have, they would go on forever!!!!! They really should drop by Moscow again sometime soon…… ”

And the Russian booking and promotion agency, TCI – Talent Concert International – features some photos and media reports from the concert on its website.
We liked Joker MK’s report: “At last – FAITH NO MORE! Serious men in jackets. Pathos- joke introduction with electro pipe. Salubrious eclecticism. For the first time there were normal songs in the concert. Excellent sound. Progressive keys. The dramatized trash. Keyboard player Roddy BOTTUM with the guitar. Convulsive show. Mike PATTON – the best showman of an alternative scene! Drops. A fly-away tie. Cool! Excellent! Super! Wow! And more 268 keenly fashionable expressions repeated 739 times!!!!”

Faith No More play Cambridge Corn Exchange
This was the second date on the UK leg of the Angel Dust tour – with L7 in support. I had the good fortune of seeing them in the Point in Dublin one week later and its fair to say that the band were at their peak as a live act.

1990
Faith No More play Fox Theatre, Detroit supporting Robert Plant
We don’t have much on this but the St Louis Dispatch previewed the gig as follows: “As you’d expect, the ex-Zep, now a huge star in his own right, has sold out this concert. But we can remind you to get there in plenty of time to catch opening act Faith No More, the San Francisco rockers just singled out by Spin magazine as its ”artists of the year.”
