Norfolk (VA), WNOR Radio Show  
September 14, 1997 Norfolk (VA), WNOR Radio Show

Well, last night was the Lunatic Luau hosted by FM99 which Faith No More was the headliner. The show was all pretty much shit until FNM came on stage. My friend and I, who live in D.C., drove 4 hours to see the show. When we got there, it looked like Heavy Metal Woodstock for White Trash America. I've never seen so many god-awful ugly chicks in clothes meant for attractive people. It sucked...but anyway, on to the show...

The setlist surprisingly was the same as the Charlotte show with (I think) the exception of Pristina:

  1. Collision
  2. Midlife Crisis
  3. Gentle Art of Making Enemies
  4. Last Cup of Sorrow
  5. Stripsearch
  6. Easy
  7. "Highway Star" (Deep Purple)
  8. Introduce Yourself
  9. Ashes To Ashes
  10. King For A Day
  11. Pristina
  12. Epic
  13. Naked In Front of The Computer
  14. Just A Man

The songs were performed brilliantly...it was the greatest show I've ever seen. The crowd definitely did NOT deserve it...they were all acting retarded. We didn't get an encore and I don't think we deserved one cuz other than me and my friends and some random others, the crowd was dead. However, there was some really cool stage talk between Roddy and Mike. After Gentle, they started talking about John Candy. They kept saying, "Hey, did you guys see John Candy on stage?" and "Was it a joke or was that really John Candy?" Then Roddy started making fun of John Candy and Mike said, "Hey, don't make fun of him, I'm sure he's been through hell, man." I'm not sure, but I think they were talking about the lead singer of Seven Mary Three who played before them. He kinda looks like him.

Anyway, other than that there wasn't a whole lot of stage banter. After Easy, people started to leave to go home and Roddy said, "I feel like we're losing you guys here..." And then at the end of Just A Man, Mike, who looked pretty pissed cuz of the shitty crowd said "You guys be careful out there in the parking lot...you might get SHOT!" and then it was over.

Overall the show was the greatest and the crowd was the worst. But that's usually the case with the big radio shows. I'm gonna see em tomorrow in a small club in D.C., so it's gonna kick ass. If you have any questions about the show or if you were there and wanna talk about it, e-mail me privately! Sseeee yaaaaa....
