Leading Austrian paper Der Standard has a good review of last night’s gig at the Nova Rock festival. Sample quote: “The band played a fantastically funny and thrilling set with allusions to Vangelis, the 80s Motown sound and a band that used to be faith No More.”
ViennaOnline also has a short positive review.
Die Presse also give a glowing review. As do Austrian state broadcaster ORF, who reveal that FNM did not play We Care a Lot and that Patton described some other bands at the festival as “horrible metal bands”.
No news on set list yet.

    I just came back from Novarock, I don’t know the exact setlist, but I have noticed some changes. From Out Of Nowhere was dropped, and I had a feeling that the set was in general shorter compared to Download… No We Care A Lot, maybe the only minus of the setlist. One of the last songs was As The Worm Turns, haven’t heard that one in a while…

    I’ve loved it, the only other annoying thing was Pattons leg injury, I mean not so much for the audience but obviously for him, I thought it affected his performance in a strange way… hi did sing great but that guy was definitely in pain, imagine Kobe Bryant playin hoops with a leg injury… probably a win but a kinda ugly performance.
    Also some minor technical problems with one of his mics… But all that said, one really should never underestimate FNMs effort and their ability to play a good and memorable show no matter what.

      Damn, I was hoping that leg injury wasn’t that serious …

    Well if we talk about small interesting facts I found this (Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails): Trent watched few songs of Faith no more set, he stood among other invited guest, which is cool. I like great musicians who are still normal persons. http://forum.nin.com/bb/read.php?21,745730,746403

    Well thanks to YouTube I seem to be able to confirm (part of?) the setlist:

    Reunited
    The Real Thing
    Evidence
    Easy
    Midlife Crisis
    Be Aggressive
    Epic
    Chariots Of Fire/Stripsearch
    Pokerface/Chinese Arithmetic
    Ashes to Ashes
    As The Worm Turns
    Just a Man

    The order is unknown, As The Worm Turns was not on one of the YouTube movies but the others were.

    Two movies here:

    Looks like they completely f*cked up the beginning of Ashes to Ashes.
    They went into the chorus too soon.

    Some interesting things about the show:
    – Mike went down to the photographs in the middle of one song (Just A Man i think)
    – No Popcorn version, instead of that a long speech of Patton saying that forgot the words of Midlife Crisis
    – Evidence last verses in Spanish… maybe due to a guys from Venezuela, showing a poster like “We came here just to see FNM”.
    – A guy went into the stage to hug Patton. No security guys seen this guy, but a member of the crew kick off. Same guy went into the stage in NIN performance.
    – Mike P. and Mike B. spit each other along the concert.
    – Mike P. was reaaaaaaaaaally angry about the sound of their microphone. He had very aggressive reaction to the sound engineer

      Yeah, sometimes I really ask myself who pays those fucking engineers, they partially screw up almost every show I go to.

      Oh, I almost forgot the Fan-on-stage incident during Easy, A goy walked calmly on the stage literally from out of nowhere, After a few awkward second where whether the audience nor anybody on stage realised that that guy was not supposed to be there, Mike started laughing and a security guard tried to grab the dude, so he ran back to where he came from. During the solo Patton asked: “Anybody else wanna come on stage and make a fool of himself? It’s toootaly worth it!”
      I just cracked myself up.
