David Byrne Kicked Off Tour This Week -- Here's the Setlist



On Tuesday, Talking Head David Byrne kicked off his tour in support of his new CD, which is a collaboration with Brian Eno called Everything that Happens Will Happen Today. (Listen to and get the album here.) Brooklynvegan has the setlist, which I reposted after the jump. Still stoked -- maybe even more so now -- for the October 18 Fox show. I'm totally going to break my "no dancing at the fancy theater" rule for this concert, I think, especially since songs like this are being played....

"Crosseyed and Painless":

1. *Strange Overtones 2. I Zimbra 3. *One Fine Day 4. Help Me Somebody 5. Houses in Motion 6. *My Big Nurse 7. My Big Hands (Fall Through the Cracks) 8. Heaven 9. *Home 10. *The River 11. Crosseyed & Painless 12. *Life is Long 13. Once in a Lifetime 14. Life During Wartime 15. *I Feel My Stuff (encore) 16. Take Me to the River 17.
