The Coachella Festival Lineups were announced yesterday. DB will be appearing on Saturdays.

Really hoping that he will be filling his time between those two weekends with solo shows in the area.

Keep an eye on DB's Tour page. New shows are being added at random intervals. His appearance at the "Shaky Knees Festival" on April 4 was just added.

Portland, Oregon. May 27! Memorial Day week-end. You know where I'll be! David hasn't played the Keller Auditorium since Talking Heads played there 35 years ago. Fantastic!

Howie Klein:
When I was considering an offer I got to work at Sire Records one of the big factors in the "plus" column is that label founder Seymour Stein had signed an amazing roster of the artists I liked listening to and playing on my San Francisco radio show. One of those artists was David Byrne, then lead singer of Talking Heads. I don't think there's any artist's music I listen to more now-- 4 decades later!-- than David Byrne's songs, his Talking Heads music and his solo projects. He just released his 11th solo record, American Utopia and something happened for him that is truly amazing: it entered the charts at #1. That never happened for any of David's music before.

Here's a start, it’ll lead to most of the album.

David Byrne Burns Down the House at the Anthem
https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertai ... story.html

Reviewer Kelly writes, “He’s so consumed by his various pursuits that it had been 14 years since he released a solo album, which he did earlier this year with American Utopia.”

2008’s Everything that Happens may not fit his definition but it’s a solo album in my book. Still ten years, though, that flew by. Wow.

Not a single first-hand report from this tour. What gives?
