Faith No More in Prague

August 17, 2009

Hello from the Tesla Arena in Prague. Its warm and its packed. Faith No More 2.0 and Ms Faith No More are sitting (!) to the right of the stage. Joy Division “Isolation” serving as the familar warm-up music.

Firewater take to the stage. Quite like this band after seeing them at Paleo in Switzerland last year. One Roddy Bottum is watching from just in front of us.

Good show from Firewater. Muted response though: the bongos and trumpet not what the FNM fans expected. TV on the Radio on the PA now.

The now familiar opening notes are greeted by a huge ovation.

Mike P in the red suit with subtle shades and cane look.

Its so hot that all bar the inscrutable Jon have shed their jackets.

Very slippery on stage. Patton nearly went arse over tit twice during LoS.

Praha! Everybody ok is Patton’s first spoken words and a big thank you for Firewater.

We get a verse of Evidence in Portuguese.

Big band discussion after SYD and we’re into LCoS. Vertigo!!!

Love the tone of Jon H’s guitar in Easy. And the breakdown in Midlife Crisis is the Russian snippet they have previously played – Timelord (?).
Roddy back and bantering to crowd prior to KFOAD.
Mike goes up close and personal with the audience during Just a Man, getting them to sing a long into the mic in Czech.
Mike has just pissed off the whole crowd by saying their football team sucks before Ole Ole on the megaphone…Chariots.
Second encore preceded by Patton: Obviously there’s nothing else happening in Praha tonight. He had went off earlier to “Seriously, Praha: insanem”

    … don’t think mike could piss off the crowd in prague … cause the sound (his mic) was so bad that it was from 80% impossible to understand what he said … otherwise concert okay! 🙂

    I liked a much Patton’s last year’s gig in Prague with the italian Zu trio. It was insane and beutiful. And yesterday!!! – it was like the dream came true. I was too young when they played in Prague at the end of 90s so this was on top of my “wishlist of gigs that will never happen”. And it happened. I’m so glad!

    I know I will repeat what was said here many times, but I have to. The Prague concert was one of the greatest music experience in my life. To see the favourite band of my teenage period after so long time and meet so many old friends was really incredible. I´ve enjoyed whole the gig…jumping…hands and head shaking…singing all the hits :o)….simply GREAT !


    as you say…this was the best party….I´ve been to :o)

    I was at Prague’s gig and it was amazing. I couldn’t wait to see FNM for the first time in my life. It was like a dream came through. One of the best gigs I have ever seen. Patton killed it like a king. Much respect to the band. I’m very proud they’re back. Hope to see them again.
