Product Description

Product Description

"Ride, Rise, Roar is a David Byrne concert film that blends riveting onstage performances with intimate details of the creative collaborations that make the music and performance happen. Shot with multiple cameras over several concerts during the Songs of David Byrne & Brian Eno Tour , the film blends the energy and charisma of classic Talking Heads with the heartfelt pathos of David Byrne and Brian Eno s most recent collaboration. Between the songs, the film achieves an unprecedented intimacy with David Byrne and the band, documenting behind-the-scenes auditions, rehearsals, and interviews with key players while revealing the creative process that led to the show s unique fusion of pop music and modern dance. Ride, Rise Roar is a celebration of Byrne s extensive career as a musician and testifies to the creativity that keeps him going today.

The word genius is much misused. I think David Byrne is as close as it gets in the world of popular music (and the visual arts where he is also very active)
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.

Like Mr Walker above, I saw two of the gigs on this tour. The Royal Festival Hall and Southampton Guildhall.

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.

Sorry to introduce a downer to all this praise but whilst the concert is fine, I didn't realise that the documentary interruptions would be so intrusive. In fact it is more of a documentary with concert interruptions.

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.

Superb reinterpretations of many old favourites, great performances all round. Yet totally ruined as a concert film by incessant, unnecessary and intrusive jump cuts that make it impossible to enjoy the careful staging and choreography. Buy as a fan of David Byrnes music - or as an excellent example of how not to edit a live event movie. 5 star music, 1 star film. Maybe they will find a proficient editor and reissue this one day.....

I went to a David Byrne concert a couple of years ago and hoped that this film might capture some of the exuberance and brilliance of that experience. The film is a joy to watch, not only a reminder of Byrnes wonderful artistry and quiet genius - and the fun of the concert , but also an interesting insight into the musicians, dancers etc who collaborated on this project.

Great DVD from the ex-Talking Heads frontman. Every music fan should have Stop Making Sense by his former band, then as The Name Of This Band Is... is pretty much impossible to find on DVD, why not buy this DVD that chronicles the work of Byrne with Brian Eno. It feature some classics like: Once In A Lifetime, Road To Nowhere, Burning Down The House and Life During Wartime. If you're a music fan the you will be familiar with David Byrne, so buy this. It is different from a straight forward band performance, featuring dancers and supporting musicians. David Byrne is a legend, BUY, sit back, relax and enjoy!!!

Cards on the table, I am a David Byrne fan. Ever since I first saw Talking Heads 30 years ago the man can do no wrong. I was bound to love this DVD.

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.

This is a brilliant documentary of an incredible tour. The effort that went into the show is extremely impressive and the video of the performances here is excellent. The best part of this is the behind the scenes look at how the show was conceived, you get a really good sense of David Byrne's genius from the documentary. To see how the intricate eventual performance evolved from basically nothing is jaw-dropping stuff.
