Aged Gracefully: Watch Faith No More perform ‘Midlife Crisis’ last night at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre


The Faith No More comeback train pulled into Boston’s Orpheum Theatre last night, and the Bay Area alt-rock band left little doubt that this is no basic nostalgia act. Mike Patton and company were in town supporting blitzing new record Sol Invictus, however, the old favorites still sound as sharp as ever, as evidenced below by fan-filmed footage of Faith No More performing 1992 Angel Dust single “Midlife Crisis.”

It’s perfect, yes it’s true.

Especially that crowd sing-along towards the end, which leads into some unfamiliar song territory before blooming for the finale.


If you missed last night’s show, fear not: Faith No More are returning to Boston on August 4, when they play the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion with Refused. Sol Invictus is out next week, and it’s streaming over on NPR.
