Faith No More | Paramount Theater, Seattle - April 16th 2015
Faith No More's North American tour in support of Sol Invictus was five years ago.
FNM began their Sol Invictus tour in Japan and Australia, they returned to the USA for the first time since October 1997 in April 2015. The second date was on Thursday April 16th at Paramount Theater, Seattle.
The all white outfits combined with the solid white decor of the flower-covered stage would make one think they are about to attend some sort of Joel Osteen sermon. Cue the lights. With each splash of red, yellow, blue, purple, green and everything in between the stage took on new life. Much like Faith No More’s catalogue. Heavy, sweet, hardcore, pop. Only the real fans of Faith No More truly understand. And there are A LOT of fans. So many in fact that some diehard fans spent the whole show outside trying to find a way in to the sold out show.
As a child of the 80′s I had personally only spent time with the hits of Faith No More. Seeing them 18 years after their prime I was curious what this was going to be like. They sounded great, though! And can still rock with the best. If you were ever a fan, I doubt you’ll receive anything but satisfaction in attending their show.
