Great performance. Wonderful crowd. The seats were off to the side but very close to the stage.

He was fantastic. It was a terrific show, the crowd was amazing and appreciative. The Greek is a wonderful venue and our seats were a great value for the price. Thanks for another wonderful event.

Listen to music from David Byrne’s new album.

Description

David Byrne is well known as the musician who co-founded the group Talking Heads (1976–88) in New York. On record and in concert, the band was acclaimed by critics and audiences alike; more importantly, however, they have proven to be extremely influential. Talking Heads took popular music in new directions, both in terms of sound and lyrics, and also introduced an innovative visual approach to the genre. In 2002 Talking Heads were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2003, Talking Heads released a boxed set that includes a DVD of all the band’s videos. In 2005, a Brick was released with the complete studio catalog on dual disc with previously unreleased audio and video material.

During his time with the group, Byrne was involved with several other projects, including My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, a collaborative record with Brian Eno incorporating “found” voices such as radio preachers, talk show guests and Arabic singers (re-release with additional tracks in March 2006); and The Catherine Wheel, an evening-length ballet score for choreographer Twyla Tharp. He has also directed music videos and films.
