David Byrne And St. Vincent Add Talking Heads Classic To Repertoire


Last year David Byrne and St. Vincent teamed up for a series of tour dates in support of their collaborative album, Love This Giant, released last September. This year, the pair and their extremely talented (and large) backing band are hitting the road again. The tour kicked off this past week at The Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ, where Byrne and Annie Clark had a trick up their sleeves to differentiate the 2013 gigs from the 2012 shows.

The former Talking Heads front man and St. Vincent already had performed "Burning Down The House," "This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)" and "Road To Nowhere" from Byrne's time with the Hall Of Fame rock band. Starting in Montclair, the pair have added a horn-driven cover of the lead single from 1986's True Stories LP - "Wild Wild Life." So far the two have played "Wild Wild Life" at each show on the run, including last night's gig at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium in Asheville, NC.
