David Byrne & St. Vincent at State Theatre, Sydney (TONEAudio)


No two David Byrne shows are ever alike: in 2008 he could be found re-treading Brian Eno collaborations new and old at Sydney Opera House. A couple of years prior to that, an intimate songwriter-with-band show at the Enmore Theatre. We have to reach back ten years for Byrne’s last State Theatre performance, then promoting the largely successful Look Into The Eyeball album and a couple of months shy of surprise cross-over hit “Lazy” [with X-Press2].


Byrne’s January Sydney State Theatre show with St. Vincent was equally refreshing. Read my full review in issue 53 of TONEAudio magazine. Download the FREE .pdf right here.  The David Byrne / St. Vincent review can be found on P16.
