David Byrne



Well it is at times like this I wish I had a way with words. This was one of the best concerts I have ever been at. David Byrne mixed his new material with tracks written mostly with Eno through his Talking Heads days.

In addition to a stunning band which made the 5 pieces sound like 10 or 15 his use of the talents of the backing singers together with a 3 piece dance group all wonderfully choreograped into one set was just amazing.

I took some clips on my phone having forgotten to pick my cameras out of the boot of the car! Curses. I will try and add these at sometime tomorrow (now added).

In the meantime the reviews are found here and trust me if you get the chance to go to a future date....please take it!
