Talking Heads member Jerry Harrison and Adrian Belew, who played with the band in 1980 and 1981, will bring their Remain in Light Tour — named after the great 1980 Talking Heads album — to the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, March 5.
Tickets go on sale Nov. 4 at 10 a.m.; visit starlandballroom.com.
Previous Remain in Light shows by Harrison and Belew have featured songs from the album — including “Once in a Lifetime,” “Born Under Punches,” “Crosseyed and Painless,” “The Great Curve” and “Houses in Motion” — as well as other Talking Heads songs, Harrison’s “Rev It Up” (from his 1988 solo album Casual Gods) and “Thela Hun Ginjeet” (co-written by Belew and recorded by King Crimson during Belew’s years in that band).
Their backing group will include former members of the band Turkuaz along with bassist Julie Slick and percussionist Yahuba Garcia-Torres.
Cool Cool Cool, also featuring former members of Turkuaz, will open.
“Remain In Light is a high point in my career,” Harrison said in a press release. “Adrian and I had often discussed the magic of the 1980 tour and the sheer joy it brought to audiences. It is such a delight to see that joy once again in the audiences on the current tour.”
The 19-date tour also will include shows at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, Pa., March 7, and Sony Hall in Manhattan, March 9.
