Faith No More, the twisted experimental metal icons made their first visit to Denver in over 20 years on Tuesday night. The group performed an electrifying set to near full house at Red Rocks to their hardcore fans who caught the band last during the 80’s and 90’s heyday.
Initially breaking up in 1998, the band has long since moved past their reunion point, performing co-headlining acts in Europe and Australia in more recent events. They are now touring in support of their newest LP “Sol Invictus”. Speaking of experimental, the group and crew entered the stage in an acid-cult-ish vibe all decked out in white, same with all equipment such as amps and other stage equipment, surrounded by bins of colorful flowers. Beginning with their newest hit “Motherfucker” and launching into “Be Aggressive,” “Caffeine” and “Everything’s ruined”. During the set, drummer Bordin was dealing with altitude sickness, stopping the show to inhale oxygen from a tank. Mike Patton jokes that they had Dennis Hooper on the drums tonight. Teasing the crowd as they sang along, Patton smirks and says “Let me show you how it’s done”.
