Fan-filmed video footage of FAITH NO MORE performing the song "Ashes To Ashes" on Sunday, June 14 at the Rock In Idro festival in Milano, Italy can be viewed below. According to the news blog Musica Metal, FAITH NO MORE singer Mike Patton spoke in perfect Italian to the crowd, filling the set with jokes and performing one whole song in Italian, bringing the sold-out Palasharp arena to a "collective orgasm more than once."Check out more photos from Long Live Rock N Roll. FAITH NO MORE kicked off its reunion tour Wednesday night (June 10) with a headlining performance at the Brixton Academy in London, England. Original guitarist Jim Martin is not part of the reunion. Performing in his place is Jon Hudson, who played with FAITH NO MORE during the latter stages of its initial run after Martin departed. The rest of the band's best-known lineup — singer Mike Patton, Gould, drummer Mike "Puffy" Bordin and keyboardist Roddy Bottum — is intact. FAITH NO MORE released "The Very Best Definitive Ultimate Greatest Hits Collection" on June 8 in the U.K. via Rhino Records. This double disc set contains the band's greatest hits on the first CD, while the second CD features b-sides and rarities. So far, no North American appearances are on the radar, but according to Gould, "U.S. shows are not out of the question."
