TOUR SOL INVICTUS | 09.05.2015 | Toronto
The second show on this tour in Canada.
FAITH NO MORE performed at the Sony Centre for Performing Arts in Toronto.
- Tour poster was designed by Zombie Yeti as part two of the set. The artist spoke to Inside The Rock Poster Frame:
The story on Toronto's show? Well i was asked to do it after I had almost finished the inks for the Chicago show. I had two possible ideas, one involving a roided up coppertone dog revealing himself out of the boys ass and attacking the pedo-preist, and the one I ended up doing... I played it safe.
At the end of their set, Patton sounded bewildered, saying, "It's kinda weird you're still into us." But Faith No More's playful drive to fold genres and time in over themselves is what makes the band so engaging to watch, and is key to their ability to be subversive and relevant even 20 years later.
The real challenge (for me) would be picking the highlights to describe, as I enjoyed every song played immensely. ‘Last Cup of Sorrow’ and ‘Ashes to Ashes’, two of my favourite Faith No More songs were included this evening and were performed perfectly. Patton snarling into his microphone through the gnarly parts of ‘Caffeine’ totally sent a shiver up my spine, as did ‘Land of Sunshine’, delivered in parts with Patton screaming through a bright red megaphone.
