Faith No More’s ‘Second Coming’ Lit By Bandit Lites
USA – Following a successful reunion tour, Faith No More took a hiatus before returning with news of their first album in 18 years entitled Sol Invictus. The album is slated for a May 19 release date, and to prepare fans, the alternative metal band is embarking on a sold out North American tour with lighting provided by Bandit Lites.
Faith No More’s current package will feature a floor package consisting of 16 Mac Auras, a mirror ball and M1 console. The existing design was created to be supplemented by venue house lighting, but due to the original tour dates selling out so quickly, Faith No More quickly added ten more venues including arenas.
Faith No More has long been a global sensation, headlining all the major outdoor festivals in Europe and the Far East. This is the first US journey in many years for the group. The unique musical style of Faith No More has continued to evolve and progress through the years. The set and lighting for this run, designed by long time production designer Harry Bastard, is as unusual and spectacular as ever. FNM are always pushing the edge and this years’ offering is no exception. One simply has to see the band live to understand and appreciate the wonderful musical styling’s which are so well lit and presented.
Bandit Lites is proud to again be involved with Faith No More and looks forward to all the exciting, ground breaking paths they will take with the band this year. “Faith is a trend setter and always has been. We never know quite what to expect from them, but we are always amazed and dazzled by the shows. They reach new territory in a world class manner every time they go out!” said chair Michael T. Strickland.
