David Byrne on tour

Presented by Count Basie Theatre

David Byrne and Brian Eno began their artistic relationship with the seminal Talking Heads albums More Songs About Buildings and Food, Fear of Music and Remain in Light, from whence came the hits "Take Me to the River" and "Life During Wartime," followed by their ground breaking album My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. They've finally made a new record, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today. The music will be available at, free for streaming and for purchase in download and physical formats. One of the songs will be free. On tour, David will play music from all of the above, but not in that order. Byrne's 1992 concert film Between The Teeth was filmed at the Basie and we are so pleased to include him in our first post-renovation performances.

If Red Bank is the closest they're coming to the city, guess I'm missing this one.

the count basie is nice. there currently renovating it. this is where bruce played awhile back. Wilco played there not to long ago. Usually its older acts, like Kansas or comedians.

I am sure he'll be in NYC - they are slowly adding dates. My bet is T5 or Webster Hall.

I'm putting my money on United Palace, or maybe even RCMH.

i agree with 10:38, byrne knows better not to play webster or t5

backwards tour i saw him at joe's pub count basie and a couple of others. he knows where his sound belongs.

count basie is a nice place to see him

Yeah, that was my reasoning, exactly. This tour is not some bush league, income-generating nonsense. They would not even consider the filth that is T5. I'd love to see them at Count Basie, but it's just too far, especially w/o a car.

webster hall? no, no. much bigger. radio city is the best bet.

Just got tickets. So excited!!

United Palace, RCMH or Beacon would all be good spots for this. Nokia would actually work, too, but I'll bet they're going for a seated venue. Maybe even Town Hall or Carnegie Hall? Hmmm.

Will Eno be joining him? Also, is it too much to ask for an Eno-Bryne-Fripp supertour?

Posted by wondering... | July 31, 2008 12:18 PM


no eno on tour.

I just downloaded the free track - "Strange Overtones."

I'm digging it.

The Count Basie is easy without a car. The train from Penn Station stops just a few blocks away. An easy 1 hour ride from the city.

I grew up in Red Bank, if you get an express train it's like a 70 minute train ride and you can walk to the CB from the station. Could drive from Manhattan in 45 minutes to an hour depending on traffic.
