Via setlist.fm, FNM’s set list from their Down Under tour opener last night/this morning in the Westpac Arena in Christchurch, New Zealand.

First YouTube is in

And here is a short clip of The Real Thing

Review
Not really a review as such but a blog post on the popular Stuff.co.nz site. Sample quote: “Also, I put it to you that there a very few men in the world that can wear a peach shirt and trouser combo and still manage to look cool. Mike Patton is one of these. It’s quite possible he is the only person on the planet who can rock that look.”
Otherwise, the concert has passed off with barely a mention in the New Zealand press.

Until the real Stuff.co.nz review. Sample quote: “Jackets were unbuttoned and discarded and the captivating Mike Patton, with slicked back hair and trademark megaphone, then led the group through a thoughtful setlist that faultlessly mixed greatest hits with the band’s best and little known numbers.”

Set list:

  1. Midnight Cowboy
  2. The Real Thing
  3. Land of Sunshine
  4. Be Aggressive
  5. Caffeine
  6. Evidence
  7. Surprise! You’re Dead!
  8. Last Cup of Sorrow
  9. Ricochet
  10. Easy
  11. Epic
  12. Midlife Crisis
  13. RV
  14. Gentle Art of Making Enemies
  15. King for a Day
  16. Ashes to Ashes
  17. Just A Man
  18. Chariots
  19. Stripsearch
  20. We Care A Lot
  21. This Guy’s in Love with You
  22. Pristina

And that looks like a corking set.
