Apologies for the late post but I very much enjoyed the hospitality at the Fulham v Shakhtar UEFA Europa League match in London last night and the hospitality after that and again after that. Anyway, here’s the update on last night’s gig in Auckland, where Faith No More performed Don’t Dream it’s Over twice. I do like Crowded House so it was a delight to see these.


The New Zealand Herald review takes issue with the short set.  Sample quote: “And there were a clutch of songs mid way through that are testament to Faith No More’s longevity and standing. It’s hard to top the mangled metal serenade of Ashes to Ashes and the lovely Midlife Crisis; then there’s maniacal late 80s track Surprise! You’re Dead!; and, from the same period, rap’n’roll classic Epic.”

The Stuff.no.nz review isn’t loading for me at the minute but here’s the link.

The Gentle Art of Making Enemies
