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.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
