A 'Once in a Lifetime' live appearance
Cool news: Former Talking Heads frontman and eclectic solo artist extraordinaire David Byrne's fall 2008 is bringing him to Tampa on Dec. 12.
The tour, which touts a setlist of songs by Byrne and Brian Eno (who's NOT appearing), starts Thursday in Cleveland. The Tampa gig is set for the historic Tampa Theatre, dare I say the perfect venue for an act like Byrne. (Click here for a full list of dates.)
Yes, the setlist will include Talking Heads songs. If you want a fuller, and very creepy, explanation from Byrne himself (complete with a plastic bunny mask), click here for the tour announcement video.
And when I say "creepy," it's a term of love. You can bet I'll be trying to get Mr. Byrne on the phone for a podcast interview before the show here.
