David Byrne - 2006-08-19 - (Jahrhunderthalle)

Jahrhunderthalle, Bochum, Germany

Talking Head David Byrne opened the 2006 season of the Ruhrtriennale with a concert in a century-old steel factory in which he was accompanied by the Duisberg Philharmonic. Twenty-five thousand people filled Bochum’s Jahrhunderthalle and the square in front of it to hear Byrne and the German orchestra weave “sonic tapestries of almost Wagnerian dimensions” out of classics pop hits like “Psycho Killer,” “Road to Nowhere,” . Byrne, who is known for the intellectual and avant-garde sensibilities he injected into familiar pop formats with the Talking Heads, was featured in the Ruhrtriennale’s “Century of Song” series, which explores the history of the pop song. In addition to Talking Heads hits, country duets with opener Joe Henry, and songs from his Imelda Marcos musical, the set list included a cover of one prominent “Italian songwriter” as well: Byrne and Co. performed “Un di felice,” the aria from Verdi’s La Traviata.
