Faith No More Announce First East Coast Reunion Show

March 10, 2010 2:42 PM ET

Faith No More have finally revealed their first East Coast U.S. concert in over a decade: Mike Patton and his reunited crew will invade Williamsburg, Brooklyn's Waterfront on July 5th. As Rolling Stone previously reported, after extensively touring Europe in 2009, the band recently announced their first U.S. date, a first-night performance at Coachella on April 17th, as well as a three-night stand at San Francisco's Warfield April 12-14th.

So far, no other East Coast dates have been announced, but it's unlikely many U.S. dates will follow the July 5th show as Faith No More will set off for Lisbon and other European cities beginning July 8th. Tickets for the Brooklyn show, which will benefit the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn, go on sale March 19th, with a special fan presale taking place March 16th.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
