Last Monday, July 27th, I caught the Faith No More concert at the Southside Ballroom in Dallas!
It took at least 2 full days for my ears to stop ringing.
The opening act was Napalm Death and I can’t say that I enjoyed that. At first I didn’t believe their singer when he described themselves a “impenetrable fucking noise.” But with 20/20 hindsight (and Wikipedia), that is exactly what they were.
Fortunately, Faith No More put on a great show that more than made up for the opening. Of course they played their big hits from the past but also added in the new material from the Sol Invictus album.
The lighting was great – almost mesmerizing. Most of the stage and the band were in white, so the light show took full advantage of that.
Alas, my cellphone camera could not do justice to the event.
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing FNM performing together again.
