Faith No More at Williamsburg Waterfront 5 July set list and video

July 6th, 2010|Faith No More, News|110 Comments

Subway problems, sweltering temperatures and long queues were all overcome by the hardy bunch of FNM fans who attended the third and final date of Faith No More’s three-date East Coast mini-tour last night. The “surprise song” did not appear but consensus seemed to be that Faith No More again delivered a stunning set with old favourites like Worm and The Crab Song getting rare airings.

Reviews:
MTV: “There may have been some gray patches in the goatees and some awfully worn T-shirts in the audience, but Patton — and more importantly, his band’s approach to hard rock — remains shockingly timeless.”
Village Voice: “The show is loud, precise, surprising, and surprisingly great. They open with a Peaches & Herb cover and then play some thrash with a prominent synth-string line. There are moments of easy listening and intense dissonance, deep soul and Vegas schlock. They can’t keep themselves from indulging in big, glorious, and anthemic moments, but Patton’s quasi-operatic tenor always sounds like it’s about to crack up into laughter.”

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.”
