Full Show Friday: Talking Heads – Germany 1980

[Originally Published: September 14, 2012]

If we had the power to go back to see a show from any tour that took place in the past, checking out Talking Heads’ landmark Remain In Light Tour would be near the top of our list. David Byrne and Co. were feeling their oats thanks in part to an expanded band that featured stunt guitarist Adrian Belew.

Earlier this year we hipped you to video of a performance from this tour that took place on December 18, 1980 in Rome. Today, we share 50-minutes worth of incredible footage from the next show on that incredible tour. On December 20, 1980 the Talking Heads performed at Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, West Germany for a show that was broadcast on a German television program called Rockpop. This eight-song set includes a sizzling version of The Great Curve and an insane Crosseyed and Painless that puts Belew in the spotlight. So blow off work and feast your eyes an ears on this…
