70 year old hippie, this is one of the best concerts I can remember. The percussionist were like seeing a very hip college matching band. It was a visual journey that kept you wondering what is next. Two encores! The crowd was electrified by David and very professional group of musicians. Stayed at Phoenix, walking distance to the fantastic Bill Graham Auditorium. Eat at Brendas, best good in the City.

Thank you Universe for bringing David Byrne and Co. to Cincinnati!!!! Whao! Totally new level of experience. David has always been ultra talented. Coreographed musicians, vocalists, all performers. All live instruments. I love the way that David uses his voice. His talent totally resonates with me. He is a deep thinker with levity in his expressions. Wonderful. How is 66 so young? Amazing! Wonderful! Thank you! Totally want the video of this tour. Wish I could follow you like a groupie to see Ibeyi in CA!!! Would love to have names of fallen victims of fear mongering racism on the monitors to each side of the stage. Many names we know. Some we don't. I don't want your powerful message lost on the crowd. Thanks for an amazing experience! And next time you come to Cincy, please come and get acupuncture :)

This 70 year old took his 21 year old daughter to the Santa Barbara Bowl expecting to see and hear something that would blow us away. Having seen David 4 other times including Stop Making Sense I was hoping this wouldn’t just be another “hit parade” just rolling out old tunes while filtering in new material. It wasn’t. In my 50 years of music concerts this was probably the most artistic concert I have ever attended. Like a runaway train this show never stopped. Several times my daughter and I would just shake our heads at the creative energy we were watching, and dancing too. The next morning we felt the same and found ourselves singing “Home” over and over. It is still ringing in my head. Both of us thought this wasn’t just a concert, but theatre like and we often felt we were watching a musical, INDEED ONE OF THE MOST CREATIVE AND ENJOYABLE SHOWS THIS OLD HIPPY HAS EVER SEEN AND WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. I’m still smiling by the way.

Fourth time seeing Mr Byrne. Great performance. Super band. Great venue. Full of positivity creativity and simple joy.

I couldn’t have been more entertained by David Byrne & his amazing & energetic band. This is a must see!! The Talking Heads stuff was excellent, as I thought it would be, but the material I didn’t know was great too! Loved it & then!!
