First ever visit to RCMH was in 1980 to see T Heads on the Remain In Light tour. Would be nice to see Mr. Byrne there again in February.

Um, excuse me - only David Bowie is called DB.

Beacon or United would have been a better choice

I went to the show in Red Bank, NJ. Had front row seats. My fave show I have seen this year. Around my 60th show this year including Radiohead twice, Cure, Bruce 3 times, Kills, Tricky, Beck, Raveonettes, Calexico, Sonic Youth on the 4th, Nick Cave twice etc... Can't wait 'til tomorrow night in Philly! Not quite Talking Heads but close. Saw Heads in '81 at Forrest Hill Tennis Stadium right before Stop Making Sense was filmed. One of my all time faves!

Is Brian Eno actually going to be with Byrne at these shows?

Posted by Amphibian | November 8, 2008 9:25 AM

Amphibian, the answer is no...sorry.

There are quite a few people you can call DB...

Byrne in Philly tonight was AMAZING!!! What a great set list.....Houses in Motion received the longest applause of the night.

he was incredible in SF last month at the symphony hall. first time seeing him: burning down the house with the exxtra marching band!

i also hate radio city. have seen many of my faves there (costello, the cure, public enemy, etc.) but the memories are not good. it's too BIG!

that said, i'll have to attend this show. i saw the original lineup of talking heads numerous times in the late '70's and THEN was lucky enough to be at the heatwave festival outside of toronto in august 1980 when mr. byrne premiered the expanded lineup and previewed songs off the then as-yet-unreleased, 'remain in light.'

i went to see costello, the headliner, but talking heads stole the show. easily one of the most amazing musical experiences of my life. watching a sea of over a hundred thousand people getting flippy floppy was unreal.

I really enjoyed the Holding Patter Screen Saver, which was a perfect visual match to the music. The new album is great, and it was released in a very unique way. I love that you can stream the album and share it with everyone.
