stunning and bears repeated views
5 November 2020 | by davidm-14See all my reviews

If you are a david byrne fan (and i have been since their first album way back when), this is a not-to-be missed visual treat. he is still just as stunning on stage as he always has been. he's surrounded himself with dancers, percussionists and keyboards, while playing some new and some (thank goodness) old favorites. reminds me of how timeless this man's music is. the visuals and lighting, dancing and all aspects are perfect. highly recommended. good job spike lee!
