The latest date of the Mondo Cane tour took Mike Patton back to Israel for his sixth performance in various guises in the country. And the gig at the Ra’anana Park Ampithreatre once more garnered rave reviews.
The NRG (Maariv) website reported that: “It seems that no matter what language he uses, what size location he chooses to appear in or what musical genre he chooses to abuse and stretch the limits of, his message comes through loud and clear – the man is a musical phenomenon.” NRG also featured a video of Patton speaking days before the concert but I get a Hebrew error message when I try to play it.
Meanwhile, the Mouse music site reports: “Mondo Cane is another reincarnation of Patton. Maybe not the most popular. Maybe not the most valued. But this reincarnation proves his love for music and the genius of his entrance into new areas.” Mouse also have a slideshow from the concert in that article.
