    Yeah it's gonna be class. Only thing is, it's just Byrne and band playing the songs of Byrne and Eno. Brian Eno himself won't be there. So stuff from More Songs..., Fear of Music, Remain In Light and the two Byrne/Eno albums. Pretty amazing then.

    FUCKING YES! Bit shit if Eno won't be there though.
  5. avatar rl-vl
    Yea, as far as I know, Eno won't be with him.
    Would still be a good show though.

    Was surprised at initial reports of Eno playing live (does he even do that anymore?). Byrne & band doing the new album, Bush of Ghosts stuff and some Talking Heads will be incredible enough.

    Fucking Yay!

    Fuck me, that was great.

    That was indeed! Didnt see you there - surprised how empty it was...great show though. Best show this year so far...
  10. avatar Crackity_jones
    Yeah, phenomenal show! The ticket prices probably account for the top balcony being empty but the floor was pretty much full. One of the best gigs I've ever been to I reckon.

    Yeah that was effin' sweet - the man's a leg-end!

    That was indeed exceptional. The dancers were great and the choreography really did all the songs justice.

    I must admit I was really surprised it was not sold out. Yes, it was 45 a ticket, but when you look at the escalating ticket prices for every big gig, I would have still thought David Byrne would sell out the waterfront

    I believe I saw you running down to the front when he played "Life During Wartime" to get yr groove-thang on.

    Absolutely great night. I was a bit sceptical at the start, but was almost immediately sucked in.

    Then when I went home, I listened to Talking Heads.
  14. avatar Crackity_jones
    You did indeed Steven! I was sat two rows behind you to begin with. I'd had enough chair-dancing by that stage so when people started streaming towards the front I thought we might as well join them. Great fun.

    Steven Dedalus took me along to see if he'd taught me anything of culture over the years, I was a bit worried I wouldn't really appreciate it but wow it was amazing. Loved the choreography and the lights and... yeah just everything.

    Though I did think the four curtain-calls were a bit over the top. Did he not realise the good people of Malone had babysitters to get home to?

    Heh, it was an overwhelmingly middle-aged audience. Apart from one kid of about 13 who was there with his dad, I think my gf and I were the youngest people there at 25. Which was a bit odd. At the end, one of the backing singers passed a setlist to a bloke of about 50 and there was a scrap over it; another white-haired fellow wrested it from his hands! One too many Pimm's methinks. She looked disgusted with them. Don't blame her.

    Also notable was David Byrne's placid refusal to shake anyone's hand. :lol:

Some of those 50+ dancers had moves but that fella spent half the gig trying to get a photo of himself/ two thumbs up/ david byrne in the background, total ass! :lol:

    The culprit emerges.
