Pussy Riot Performance at Faith No More’s Moscow Concert

(From France24.com): Russia’s Pussy Riot punk band gave a surprise performance at a concert by US rockers Faith No More late Monday as three of its young women members await trial for singing an anti-Putin song in a church.

Five women bounded on stage during a Moscow concert by Faith No More, wearing Pussy Riot’s signature brightly coloured balaclavas and yelling an obscenity-laden song calling for a „riot in Russia“.

They held up a banner with the date of the jailed women’s next court hearing on Wednesday, when supporters plan to hold a street festival. (…)

The band’s appearance was introduced with the sound of the Kremlin chimes. Afterwards Faith No More put on balaclavas and Pussy Riot T-shirts to sing their 1980s hit „We care a lot“.
