Faith No More in Monterrey

November 12, 2009

UPDATE:
Still no news on set list or any video surfacing but here’s a review from El Porvenir, wqhich states that the concert was not sold out, that the sound was poor and that Mike P took out a monitor in anger.
It also lists Be Aggresive, Surprise! You’re dead!, Last Cup of Sorrow, Easy, Epic, Midlife Crisis, The Gentle Art of Making Enemies and Just a Man as among the songs performed while Jaun in comments suggests they played RV (see I do read the comments!!).

No news on set list or any video yet but Roddy has posted a great photo on Twitter.

    It seems that Patton have some problems with monitors and the gig wasn’t so crowded but the people there really enjoy: http://www.elporvenir.com.mx/notas.asp?nota_id=352346

      Patton almost killed two road crew guys when he hit upper Hudson ¬īs Marshall cabinet with his head and they hit the run before they were crushed ; He smashd Puffy¬īs floor tom with his mike and the best of all, threw the mike stand over the heads of the audience; rock it doesn¬īt have to be safe hahahahahah

    Yes, it was a not so great turnout (like 4000 – 5000 aprox). Patton indeed had trouble with the monitors and basically gave the sound engineer hell all night, throwing a lot of “fuck you’s” and “suck my dick” in the mix.

    The came out on stage wearing the masks but after “Reunited” they took them off. Puffy put his mask back on for the encores.

    The setlist is almost 99% accurate (maybe a couple of songs are out of order):

    Reunited
    Land of Sunshine
    Be Aggressive
    Caffeine
    Evidence (in spanish)
    Surprise! Your Dead
    Last Cup of Sorrow
    Easy
    Epic
    Midlife Crisis
    RV
    Richochet
    Gentle Art of Making Enemies
    King for a Day
    Ashes to Ashes
    Just a Man

    (encore 1)
    Chariots of Fire/Stripsearch
    We Care a Lot

    (encore 2)
    The Real Thing

    Right before the third and final chorus in “Midlife Crisis”, Patton stopped the song, and asked the audience what we wanted a few times, then he said that what we needed was love (all this in spanish, he speaks it good enough) and then broke out this lounge version of the chorus. They went with it a few bars and then resumed the normal chorus. It was pretty sweet.

    Of course, being pissed off about the monitors brought out the best out of Patton, who by the end of the performance was unmercifuly heckling the audience with a lot of “putos/putas/pendejos/chigateros” and specifically calling out a guy wearing an Exodus tshirt. He suggested he was terribly confused.

    And during “The Real Thing”, Patton mounted a security guard and rode him towards the audience for some high 5’s. He got back on stage and thanked his “caballo” with a kiss.

    All in all, a great show.

      I think this is one of the first times they’ve used The Real Thing to close out the show.

      I’m not really a big fan of that song, especially when it was the 2nd song on the set list. It just kills the momentum, IMHO.

      But as a 2nd encore? That might be a better home for that song on the setlist.

        You are totally correct.

        When they started the song I immediately thought that it was a very strange choice to end the set. But they played it fiercely… the dynamics of puffy pounding away, totally in sync with roddy & billy, and patton riding his human horse into the audience… the crowd loved it.

    Qué loco reencuentro

    Si su propósito fue dar una sacudida al espíritu y al cuerpo, su misión fue cumplida.
    La reuni√≥n fue inolvidable, esas que devuelven la fe a los fans de que todav√≠a hay Faith No More para rato…
    Hace 11 a√Īos, la llamada banda de culto decidi√≥ no tocar m√°s, pero para benepl√°cito de sus seguidores, en junio regresaron a los escenarios con The Second Coming, su nueva gira que arranc√≥ en Europa y anoche par√≥ en la Arena Monterrey para alojarse por siempre en la memoria de los regios.

    Las manecillas del reloj marcaban las 22:22 horas cuando se escucharon los primeros acordes del cover soulero “Reunited”, una canci√≥n del d√ļo Peaches & Herb, que hizo que los m√°s de 5 mil fieles regios lanzaran gritos emocionados para ser parte importante de la llamada “gira reuni√≥n” del grupo de metal alternativo formado en San Francisco, California, en 1982.

    Pero v√°monos por el principio. En su rol de telonero, Pato Machetes arrib√≥ a la escena a las 21:05 horas para calentar durante 25 minutos a la raza que record√≥ con √©l rolas como “Bien Bien”, “Me Comprendes M√©ndez” y “S√≠ Se√Īor”, adem√°s de incluir el tema “Amigo”. Despu√©s lleg√≥ la hora de la… ¬Ņlucha libre?
    Bueno, al menos eso parecía, pues los integrantes de Faith No More sorprendieron a la audiencia entrando al escenario ¡enmascarados!

    Esto sucedi√≥ s√≥lo durante su entrada y la primera rola, influidos quiz√°s porque la noche anterior (martes) los m√ļsicos se fueron a disfrutar de la lucha libre a la Arena Coliseo.
    Mike Patton, vocalista, llegó apoyado en un bastón, fingiendo dificultad para caminar, como si se tratara de un ancianito, pero esto sólo como parte del show, claro está, porque luego lo aventó.
    “Somos los m√°s grandes luchadores: Faith No More…”, dijo en espa√Īol el cantante.
    Los ánimos de la audiencia de cancha parecían arder y saltaba, alzaba sus manos al aire y cantaba.
    En tanto, el vocalista también echaba chispas, pero de coraje, pues en repetidas ocasiones reclamó al ingeniero de consola la calidad del sonido.Tiró el micrófono al suelo, golpeó la batería, arrojó del escenario dos monitores y estrelló su cabeza contra una bocina.

    Sin embargo, el p√ļblico ignoraba la situaci√≥n y s√≥lo le importaba disfrutar con todo su cuerpo el estrujante sonido de la banda con los temas “Surprise You’re Dead”, “Last Cup Of Sorrow” y “Midlife Crisis”, que parec√≠an desgarrar la garganta del cantante por los gritos que lanzaba.
    El escenario presentaba una sencillísima producción: una cortina roja al fondo. Sí, ésa fue la guarida del vocalista Mike Patton, el baterista Mike Bordin, el tecladista Roddy Bottum, el bajista Billy Gould y el guitarrista Jon Hudson.

    Debido a que para esta noche los organizadores optaron por dejar la cancha libre de sillas, el p√ļblico que ocup√≥ esa zona se dio vuelo bailando y levantando a hombres y mujeres en brazos para lanzarlos hasta al frente del escenario. Los fans que llenaron la cancha estaban como locos, correspondiendo a un fren√©tico vocalista que sorprendi√≥ con su potente voz.

    Siempre que se dirigi√≥ a la audiencia, Mike lo hizo en espa√Īol, incluso cuando lanz√≥ insultos que parec√≠an ser piropos por la reacci√≥n de la gente.
    Rolas como “Easy”, “Just a Man” y “Epic”, esta √ļltima el √©xito m√°s sonado de los californianos, retumbaron en el recinto.

    Aunque amenazaron con decir adi√≥s a las 23:34 horas, Faith No More regres√≥ para seguir delirando junto a sus fans en una noche donde la locura fue invitada especial para cantar “We Care a Lot Reunited”.
    Los fans, entre ellos muchas mujeres, vibraron con los m√ļsicos y hasta con el M√≠stico, que esa noche fue caracterizado por el baterista, quien us√≥ la m√°scara del luchador en la √ļltima parte del show.
    La noche heavy, intensa y loca termin√≥ a las 23:57 horas. Despu√©s hubo un alter party con un selecto grupo de fans. Mike estaba loco de contente de pisar tierras norte√Īas.
    Aprovechan el ‘martes nice’

    En esta esquina… ¬°Faaaith Nooo More!
    Antes de descargar su energ√≠a en el escenario y luego de desempacar maletas a su llegada a la Ciudad, los m√ļsicos de la banda de culto originaria de San Francisco, California, se aventaron unas luchitas.
    Como si se tratara de cualquier espectador, Mike Patton, Mike Bordin, Roddy Bottum, Billy Gould y Jon Hudson se aparecieron en la Arena Coliseo para aprovechar el “martes nice

    That does sound like a great show, Jaun, thanks for the recap! Sometimes the best stuff comes out of some pretty crappy sets.

    Patton was ON the whole night…. The band was tight except on Ricochet, which was a little sloppy. Patton spoke lots of spanish, cursing the whole time, it was really fun to listen to. I was in the front row and saw the whole of Patton riding the security guard thing, it was really funny…. My first time seeing them and was worth the wait. Now flying to Guadalajara on saturday for the last show of the tour

    The arena holds maybe 12-15 thousand people, so it looked half empty, but still there was a fair amount of people in attendance for a band like Faith No More AND a city like Monterrey. There is no other venue suited for a show like this, the next smaller one holds maybe 2500-3000 people tops…

    The high point for me was the night before when I got to meet Roddy, Jon, Patton and Puffy. I took pictures with them and they signed my AD and my KFAD. They were really nice..

    Awesome trader and long time fan Fidernike recorded the whole show on his video camera and I guess will upload it somewhere soon…

      hope he uploads the entire gig, I’m eager to see this !!! and encourage other fans to go to guadalajara too if they can… they will regret a lot if they miss this gig.

    bueno este show estuvo muy bueno, fue exclusivo para fanaticos, un reencuentro de fnm con sus verdaderos fans. si hubo algunas partes en que el sonido fallo, sobretodo en la caja de samplers de patton, pero no afect√≥ al concierto. sobre las malas palabras yo lo v√≠ mas como algo com√ļn entre mexicanos, el hecho de que nos digamos cabron, pendejo o puto , es muy normal entre camaradas, asi que no veo por que las ofensas. Nunca me ha tocado ver a una persona como patton, que se documenta tanto sobre la cultura de un pa√≠s y la explota en sus conciertos, por que en chile dijo algo de pinochet, de frei, en argentina sac√≥ el futbol, etc. Yo hic√© el viaje desde chihuahua, y en verdad vali√≥ la pena, ojal√° y este concierto abra las puertas para otros proyectos de patton como lo es fantomas o algunas improvisaciones que hace con zorn o razel. Tengo unos videos de Reunited, RV y Just a Man (canci√≥n donde al final babea), intentar√© subirlos a youtube en breve, aunque de entrada les digo que la calidad no es tan buena como ese de EASY que acaban de subir. Saludos para todos los que estuvieron en el concierto, y para qu√≠enes est√°n en espera de verlo en DF y Guadalajara, no se arrepentir√°n si realmente son f√°naticos de FNM!!

    I’m just remembering , Patton threw his mic stand to the crowd! Not like a push over from the stage, but more like a 30 feet throw into the crowd… It was a miracle that nobody got hurt, my friend almost caught it with is head!

    Also he hit the drums twice. The first time he hits the bass drum with his mic really hard and the other one he just shook the drums with his hands… Seemed to be pissed with Puffy or just pissed at the monitors…

    He also pushed over two monitors into the barricade and also a guitar amp with his head (I somehow missed it), I just saw the roadies trying to fix that last one.

    It seems to me know that maybe he was trying to get somw kind of reaction from the mostly tame crowd. Anyway he gave an awesome performance.

    Ready for the Mexico City concert tonight.

    I feel like a teenager, its just that I never thought I would get to see this guys live, much less in Mexico City.

    Hope the setlist is great and the crowd is pumped!!!!

    My ideal setlist would include “Just a Man” and “Everything’s Ruined”.

    Hope my wishes are granted.

    maybe “edge of the world” for mexico, as I’ve heard they rehearsed this song but patton refused to play it in the final brazilian show.

  17. November 13, 2009 10:09 pm

    Lets hope people get pumped, the venue is pretty small.
