- Faith No More played Christchurch’s Caledonian Hall in 1993. In 2011 (almost exactly a year after they last played the city at a different venue) that beautiful concert hall collapsed in the Christchurch earthquake.
Of course, one building pales into significance set aside over 200 lost lives but it does give added piquancy to those of us on the other side of the world thankfully unaffected by the tragedy.Please donate to the earthquake appeal here.Best wishes to the many Faith No More fans in Christchurch and New Zealand and deepest sympathy to those who lost loved ones in the quake.
