Mike Patton and the gang set out on this tour to what looks to be a continuation of the ‘zen vibes’ that brought them back together as a band in 2009: white stage and clothing, flowers, beads and chants. Perhaps they have indeed found peace amongst each other after being so many years apart, with their serenity, confidence and enthusiasm certainly there to be seen.

Effortless interactions with their fans and the wit which they have never abandoned made the night memorable for most, along with some wheelchair crowdsurfing which surprised not only the public but also the band members, and according to Patton was “one of the best he had ever seen”.

It truly felt like they have missed playing for their Seattle fans, and being able to feel the heat and intensity from the crowd only proved that Seattle certainly missed Faith No More and were really happy to have them back, even if for a night.

Hailing from a small town in the South of Brazil, I was taught to pursue and create anything I wanted to see in my world… So I did. Music was my first and foremost inspiration and ever since then has been leading the way to a life full of wonders. With many stories to share and a recent move to San Francisco, I found myself drawn into another beautiful world comprised of lights, cameras, lots of fog & action, and soon enough I was photographing live some of my favorite bands as a way to genuinely document the amazing world I was living in, and to capture and keep alive those special moments which once existed but could have been forever lost otherwise. Since then a decade has passed, and I have realized that I can only truly be where the music is. So today, I am beyond happy to call Seattle home.
