WestFest review

News from Faith No More’s last leg of their Japan/Aus/NZ tour has been a little scarce but the New Zealand Herald now has a review of the event. They say: “Crowds built in the evening as punters finished work for a powerful set by Faith No More, who performed on a stage decorated in thousands of dollars worth of flowers. New songs, like Motherf*****, showed they haven’t passed their use-by date just yet, but it was brooding, funk-tinged classics Epic and Last Cup of Sorrow that really bought back the ’90s.”

WestFest photos

UndertheRadar have a photo gallery and a review of sorts: “Faith No More blew minds with their white-drenched and flower-laden stage, not to mention phenomenal showmanship – despite a slightly loose set.”

Faith No More FB posts

It was a bit disturbing to learn that Roddy was forced into taking down his original post showing him and Judas Priest front man Rob Halford together at WestFest. I didn’t see the abusive comments myself but I would have thought FNM fans were above such presumably homophobic abuse.
