How was David Byrne??


Recommended Posts

awesome show... that guy can really sing! lots of fun TH songs, including once in a lifetime, take me to the river, and burning down the house!

backup singers and dancers were fun to watch... and david interacts well with the crowd. i think the performers were fairly impressed with the energetic crowd and massey hall in general.

really, really nice hand drums...

Montreal show was incredible. It occured to me during the show that I've never owned a David Byrne or Talking Heads recording, and just how much a mistake that was.

I felt like I was watching a concert on the Starship Enterprise. Music from the future.

The choreography was stellar, Byrne had the confidence of an American Bowie, and the Montreal crowd was a joy to be a part of. Bonus marks for ending the show early so I could get back to Ottawa at a reasonable hour.

Great, great show. I hope the rest of you enjoyed it half as much as I did.

I'm not sure of the setlist, but it looks like Montreal was pretty similar to the Toronto setlist above.
