Mr. Bungle began their reunion tour with their first show in nearly 20 years at LA's Fonda Theare last night (2/5). As promised, original members Mike Patton, Trevor Dunn, and Trey Spruance broke out songs from their thrash-inspired 1986 demo The Raging Wrath of The Easter Bunny for the first time in over 30 years, and they were joined by two thrash legends to do so: Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer). They also played part of Slayer's "Hell Awaits," they covered "Speak English or Die" by Scott Ian's band Stormtroopers of Death (and changed the lyrics to "Speak Spanish or Die"), and they played part of "The Real Thing" by Mike Patton's band Faith No More (who will also be busy this year) into a cover of 7Seconds' "You Lose." Plus, they opened with a cover of the Mister Rogers' Neighborhood theme song and also covered Circle Jerks (who are also reunited this year), powerviolence progenitors Siege, Oi! vets the Exploited, soft rockers Seals & Crofts ("Summer Breeze," also famously covered by Type O Negative), and crossover thrashers Crumbsuckers, Cro-Mags, and Corrosion of Conformity. And they did some songs from the Raging Wrath era that were never released. We weren't there, but judging by fan-shot video, the whole thing looked pretty awesome. Watch a full-set video and check out the full setlist below.

Mr. Bungle handpicked a killer selection of openers, which vary by night. Last night had Ho99o9 and Hirax. Upcoming shows have Cattle Decapitation, Melvins, Full of Hell, Possessed, and more. All upcoming dates (including two more LA shows, two Brooklyn shows, and two San Francisco shows) are listed below.
