Talking Heads Tribute to Recreate 1984 Concert Film in Bethlehem
On Saturday, Sept. 17, Talking Heads tribute band Start Making Sense will recreate director Jonathan Demme’s critically-acclaimed concert film, Stop Making Sense, on stage at Lehigh University’s Zoellner Arts Center.
Tickets cost $25 for grand tier and balcony seating, $35 for orchestra seating and $40 for pit seating. Tickets are available online now at Zoellner Arts Center’s website.
Stop Making Sense, released April 24, 1984, was filmed during the group’s three-night stand at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. Utilizing innovative camera techniques, the concert features the influential Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band performing such hits as “Psycho Killer,” “Burning Down the House,” and their New Wave take on Al Green’s “Take Me to the River.”
Start Making Sense singer Jon Braun promises a “once in a lifetime” concert experience for fans.
“We’re very excited to be recreating Stop Making Sense in a live setting,” Braun said.”(The film is) widely regarded as one of the best concert films of all-time. It’s going to be quite a challenge, but we’ve been wanting to do this for a long time.”
