  • Finally, managed to find a report of Billy Gould speaking at the Heineken Music Conference in Tel-Aviv from the Jerusalem Post. Sample quote: “Labels used to be in it for the long term with an artist – they’d get signed to a development deal, and the label wouldn’t mind if the first record didn’t sell. The idea was to build a following, and by the third album, you’d begin to see the results of your labor,” he said. “There’s no way that would happen today. If you’re not a hit, you’re gone.”
  • The tour posters from the second leg of The Second Coming tour are now on sale at Secret Serpents.
  • Here’s a generally positive  Rock en Seine review from ClickMusic.
  • And a glowing review in French from MusicPlease here and another from Telerama here.
  • Chuck Mosley interview from the Charlotte Indie Music Examiner.

  • Will they or won’t they? muses on whether Faith No More will tour the US. I’m pretty sure they will.
  • Via the same source and from Metal Injection, neatly-packaged Faith No More at Download Festival video.
  • Finally a good quality version of FNM covering Lily Allen surfaces on YouTube.
  • Faith No More at Reading photo gallery from Sophie Jane at MySpace.
  • Less that flattering Tel Aviv gig review from Haaretz. Sample quote: “The second point almost unnecessary to add is that even a pale version of Faith No More is still much more than an undiluted version of 95% of most bands. And yet a large number of songs, especially during the first part of the show, sounded like covers of the originals – and not like renditions that could stand on their own.” Also on Tel-Aviv, Billy apparently spoke at the Heineken Music Conference – more on Kool Arrow than FNM – but if anyone has links to reports can they please let me know.
  • Virtual Festivals have their top 10 acts at the Radio 1 stage at Reading and Faith No More are right up at the top.

Faith No More's final Second Coming European tour date

September 1st, 2009|Faith No More|0 Comments

Faith No More play the last leg of their European tour at the Heineken Music Conference in Tel-Aviv (for the purposes of this tour Tel-Aviv is in Europe!). Here is the official site in Hebrew and here is a preview piece with some logistical details from Israeli’ newspaper Haaretz.

UPDATE: The same newspaper has just published an opinion piece on whether gig-goers should go to Faith No More or Madonna tonight. Sample quote:  “So with all due respect to Madonna, if you have your mind set on seeing a real show with serious musicians, a singer with soul, and music with a message that will stay with you long after the huge video screens come down, I think you know where you have to go.”

It looks like Faith No More’s reunion tour will go beyond Europe’s borders and will extend into September. Israel’s Hebrew-language news siet YNet has announced that Faith No More will be playing the Summer Festival in Tel Aviv, which takes place on 1 and 2 September. More details at this Last FM page.*

*Yes I knew Israel plays in European football competitions and competes in Eurovision but its not really in continental Europe.
