  • More Portugal videos and reaction. There’s another collection of high quality Faith No More videos from their Sudoeste show at the Blitz site here.
  • My good friend Hugo Pietra was at the gig and here’s his verdict on his excellent blog.
  • There is a good selection of the high-quality Hurricane footage featured on German TV channel ZDF theaterkanal here.
  • Pitchfork featured an interview with Doseone AKA Aam Drucker is which he speaks about working with Mike Patton and the controversial British artists the Chapman brothers on a new project called the Nevermen. He also mentions his project with Alan Moore and adds that Mike will be contributing.
  • Mike’s FNM predecessor Chuck Mosley is getting plenty of press attention for the forthcoming release of his debut solo record Will Rap over Hard Rock for Food with Rolling Stone the latest publication to feature an interview. Sample quote: “That said, would Mosley ever reunite with Faith No More? “Oh, totally! Especially with [guitarist] Jim Martin, because personally, I thought [firing Martin] was as big if not bigger a mistake than getting rid of me — just because he had a lot of pull with the big part of their crowd at the time. And he was ‘the personality,’ y’know? There was something people could identify to. After Jim, they were going through a string of different guitar players, and I couldn’t name one of them. That Jagger/Richards, Plant/Page thing was gone.””
  • There is also a chance to listen to the full album on AOL (though it seems to be US only).

  • Especially for FNMgetsthehose on Twitter, the legendary scene about Mike Patton in All My Children from August 2006. The writer is obviously quite a fan.
  • As we mentioned back in June, highlights from Faith No More’s performance at the Hurricane Festival in Germany will be featured on ZDF’s theaterkanal on Wednesday 5 August. The 45-minute show will feature highlights from Faith No More’s and Nine Inch Nails’ sets. We’ll post a reminder and details of how to watch this online next week.
  • Some clips from Faith No More’s Download show are now being aired on VH1 Classic and online here.
  • The buzz is already building for the second leg of Faith No More’s Second Coming tour.  Romanian site Metalhead reports on a Faith No More special featuring “three hours of video projections and audio” on 7 August. More details here.
  • And there’s a somewhat bizarre competition to win tickets for Faith No More’s concert in Santiago, Chile on 30 October here.
  • Mike Patton has yet to be approached to again lend his vocal talents to a sequel to the Darkness video game, according to Destructoid.

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 at Hurricane

June 22nd, 2009|Tour dates|0 Comments

First videos of Saturday’s gig are appearing. No news yet on set list, but will add and reviews later.
There are good galleries here on MTV and here (via tbeest).
The same blog has a short piece on the FNM set, saying it was the worthy conclusion of a beautiful day. It also quotes Mike’s opening words: “Mike Patton greeted the audience with the words “It’s good to be back after 12 fucking years” and then wanted to know: “Who has children? Who’s divorced?”.

Faith No More at Nova Rock, Southside and Hurricane

June 19th, 2009|Tour dates|0 Comments

A stag weekend trip to Hamburg (a frustrating 70km away from the Hurricane festival) means I will not be around this weekend for FNM’s Teutonic triple-whammy of festival dates. I hope to provide some news though via Blackberry.  Here’s some links and news that should help.
As always check Stubbadub and CacaVolante for news too. I’ll also be on Twitter here and regular commenter here tbeest is always quick with the set list news.
Nova Rock: Festival site is here. Not sure if they’ll have many updates and no live video is planned. Austrian TV station ORF has a preview here.  It reports that tickets are still on sale so if you fancy seeing FNM on a smaller stage on the same night as Metallica, Nine Inch Nails and Slipknot you can still make it.
Hurricane Festival: FNM move on to the Hurricane Festival near Bremen in Germany on Saturday night, headlining the main stage at 23.00 after the Pixies and Social Distortion. Again tickets are still on sale with day tickets at €75. The Hamburger Morgenposten have a preview here.
Southside festival: Then its off to sister festival Southside in the south of Germany on Sunday. Its a similar bill to Hurricane with FNM on the main stage at 22.00. Again tickets are still on sale from local ticket outlets and at the festival site.

It seems that German TV channels ZDF and Arte will be filming both Hurricane and Southside for transmission in a series of programmes in August on ZDF anda 90-minute special in November on Arte. More here.

The re-formed rockers feature second on the Red stage  – second stage  – bill with a scheduled stage time of 20:40-22:00. Nine Inch Nails headline the same stage. Over on the main stage, Slipknot and Mastodon slightly clash with FNM but headliners Metallica are only on stage at 23:30. Meanwhile, FNM wil headline the main stage at both the Southside and Hurricane festivals this weekend.

The gig will be their fourth in four days and yet another German stop. Faith No More have already confirmed dates at the Kindl-Bühne Wuhlheide in Berlin and the Hurricane and Southside Festivals in June and the Highfield and Area 4 festivals in August.

Update. This has now also been confirmed on the venue website. Tickets on sale shortly.
