Faith No More Announced As Final Open’er 2014 Headliner
Finally the last headliner for Open’er Festival 2014 is announced! The last of them is the legendary Faith No More who play Open’er just hours after Mike Patton and co. perform at London’s Hyde Park by special invitation from Black Sabbath.
“Faith No More vs. rest of the world”; “Faith No More beats all the competition” – these were the reviews of FNM’s previous concert at Open’er festival. In the summer of 2009, Gdynia was one of the stops of the world tour of the then-reactivated band, and the group’s performance on Main Stage made history. Today those who saw that show still remember Patton going on stage with his cane, a dance routine with an umbrella, the red heavy curtain that was the backdrop for the band, and most of all, a totally perfect setlist packed with hits.
Although their latest studio release dates back to 1997, Faith No More are still listed among the most influential rock bands in the world. They formed in 1981 in San Francisco, but the major breakthrough for the group was when they recruited singer Mike Patton and released “The Real Thing” 25 years ago. Still a seminal album – still a seminal band.
