Turkuaz Announces Full ‘Remain In Light’ Tribute Schedule With Jerry Harrison & Adrian Belew
Turkuaz and special guests Jerry Harrison and Adrian Belew will pay tribute to the 40th anniversary of Talking Heads’ Remain In Light studio album at various festivals as well as in New Orleans and at Red Rocks between May and July. The New Orleans performance will take place at the Joy Theater in New Orleans on May 2.
Harrison is a co-founding member of Talking Heads, while Belew toured with the band in support of Remain In Light. The New Orleans date will be the first time the band and their guests will perform the album. Other performances will take place at Red Rocks on May 22, Bottlerock on May 24, Bonnaroo on June 12, Electric Forest on June 26, The Peach Music Festival on July 3 and FloydFest on July 24. The 90-minute sets will also feature other tunes from the Talking Heads catalog.
“Remain In Light and Talking Heads have been part of the soundtrack of our lives, and a huge inspiration to us as a band since day one,” explained Turkuaz frontman Dave Brandwein. “It’s certainly not every day you get a chance to collaborate with the very people who inspired you. These shows, and this chance to work with Jerry and Adrian is a dream come true. More than anything, all parties involved are excited to bring this music back to life, and back to the stage in a way that hasn’t been done for many years.”
Tickets for the New Orleans show go on sale this Friday, January 17 at 10 a.m. CT via AXS.com. Watch Turkuaz, Belew and Harrison perform “Crosseyed & Painless” below:
