Talking Heads

Recommended Posts

Some more tips...(such a shame he's doing festivals next year on a fallow year)

His first 2 solo albums: Rei Momo and Uh Oh are fantastic.

As for live performance shows: Between the Teeth is incredible but criminally never got a DVD/ Blu ray release.

(full bands starts at 10.50mins)

Talking Heads at Newcastle Poly, Jan 1978, one of the best gigs I've ever been to. Rubbish local support band, well named, they  were indeed dire.

where are those dates from? They're not on his website with the other dates.

yeah, I found them ... just find it odd they're not included in the email Byrne sent out, or on his website.

Great news. Will be aiming for Manchester tickets but will travel if necessary!

Have been watching his web site and scouring internet daily for last month waiting for this announcement. Bizarrely there have been a few European dates not showing on his web site!

look, can you stop this please?

It's been easy to get tickets for Byrne shows for decades, but i'm starting to worry now. Can't you youngsters go back to listening to Mumfords or something? 

:P

Turning down tickets for talking heads in 1979 (I think) remains one of the biggest regrets of my life as I then never saw them perform.

David Byrne in Sheffield in 2007 was absolutely out of this world, definitely one of my best ever gigs.

Although I loved Tom Tom Club at Glastonbury and nearly cried when they played psycho  killer, it wasn't the same.

a major promoter has told me he tried for Byrne for next summer but missed out on him.

So it definitely looks like someone has him, but i don't know who. My guesses would be EotR, Bestival, and (probably the most likely) WOMAD.

Please tell me this major promoter wasn’t Melvin Benn. Would be wonderful if he’s at latitude

it wasn't melvin I heard about.

But with those dates mentioned above, I'm thinking that particular festival might have been rejected because of the indoor dates byrne is doing - because they're at about the same time.

And I've just had a better look at his announced tourdates, and see that he's already got shows booked in for Latitude weekend (which probably make that unlikely), and he's back in the states by WOMAD.

Boooooo!

I'm wondering if the indoor shows might be all there'll be. :(

What's the chances that I can pay for these tickets with a promise to do a good deed for a random stranger every day from now until the gig, instead of money which I have none of?

Will have to go to the Manchester Apollo show. Just checked, last time I saw him was the Look Into the Eyeball tour, 2001, in a small theatre in Toronto.

That page has been deleted and no evidence anywhere on the internet that I can find anymore of those dates. I presume they are still happening and that they were published too early but whether tickets will still go on sale this Friday as I think that article claimed who knows!

what are the prices likely to be for these? I assume high

Probably, i remember in 2009 they seemed expensive (£30.00+) and prices have exploded in the intervening years

Anything less than £55 would surprise me, as much as it pains me. I'd edge even closer to guessing at £70. That's way out of my disposable threshold this month.

That said, Byrne is probably the must-see artist left on my bucket list, save a Roxy Music reunion. Fingers crossed for lower value.

Hasn’t he got some sort of WiFi setup so that his band are ‘leadless’. Sure I read that somewhere. 

I know little of his solo stuff but I’ll be seeing him this year so will have to get stuck in and give him a listen.

nah, that'll be Byrne if there's only those 4 shows (far fewer than his last UK solo shows) ... limiting supply to hike the price is tory. I'm just part of the demand. :P
