I was fortunate to see two concerts on this tour, at Bristol and Barcelona. We were even lucky enough to attend the backstage after-gig party at Barcelona as VIP guests of one of the backing band. I met my hero, shook his hand, and was a speechless nerd.
Not only does this DVD capture the superb live performances, the snips in between give a great insight into the process behind writing some of the music, collaborating with Brian Eno, and putting the tour together with choreographers etc..
I am not a bloke, at 54, who dances. I danced to this infectious,irresistible music played live by as tight a band as you will get. The vocal harmonies in particular are SUPERB, and the rhythmn section of Paul Frazier and Mauro Refesco is rock solid.
From his start with Talking Heads at CBGB's (now sadly gone) in New York, through all his solo work Byrne has maintained a consistently high standard across a huge range of musical styles. No-one, IMHO, has maintained this standard over 4 decades as Byrne has managed (even the Beatles put some rubbish out individually!)
Treat yourself and buy this.
I've seen Mr Byrne play many times over the last 20 years and can safely say that this tour was his most electrifying and very best yet. My one gripe is that it doesn't contain the version of 'Help Me Somebody' that was part of the set - a chilling, edgy live performance of a song that was originally on My Life In The Bush of Ghosts. It exists as an MP3 out there on the web but isn't on this DVD.
Still - a damn fine concert film from a manic, super imaginative performer.
Also, loses stars for the short attention-span camera work. There is never a prolonged full stage shot, just a sequence of slick, multi-camera editing.
David Byrne has aged well and gives slight insight into his musical progression and Brian Eno is lucid and amusing but for me, the extraordinary dancing of Lily Baldwin steals the show.
So having already seen the tour, bought the T-shirt and found a cinema showing the film when it first came out, the DVD was always joining the collection. It is without doubt a fascinating insight into how this groundbreaking tour came about. For those who haven't seen it, the show mixes in dancers with a standard rock band set up, blurring the edges so sometimes you can't see where the band ends and the dancers begin. The DVD is part documentary and part concert footage.
But I do have a complaint. I think the DVD presentation is a bit lazy. It is exactly the same as the cinema version. I would have expected an extras option where you could just watch the concert. In fact any extras would have been good.
Having said that it is a good film. Great for fans and newbys alike.
