Talking Heads veterans Jerry Harrison and Adrian Belew have announced a 2023 Remain In Light tour featuring Cool Cool Cool as both their backing band and their nightly opening act. Harrison and Belew’s running Remain In Light shows pay homage to Talking Heads’ celebrated 1980 LP of the same name, on which they are both featured.

The 2023 tour is set to begin in February with a run of Colorado shows (2/16 in Denver, 2/17 in Boulder, 2/18 in Beaver Creek) before making its way to Oklahoma City, OK (2/21); St. Louis, MO (2/22); Minneapolis, MN (2/24); Chicago, IL (2/25); Indianapolis, IN (2/26); Akron, OH (2/27); and Buffalo, NY (2/28).

Jerry Harrison, Adrian Belew, and Cool Cool Cool will move into March with shows in Toronto, ON (3/2); Pittsburgh, PA (3/3); Baltimore, MD (3/4); and Sayreville, NJ (3/5) before closing the tour with a run of five East Coast shows in five days featuring stops in Philadelphia, PA (3/7); Albany, NY (3/8); New York, NY (3/9); Boston, MA (3/10); and New Haven, CT (3/11).

Harrison and Belew first reunited to perform material from Remain In Light at the 2021 edition of The Peach Music Festival with nine-piece funk-rock outfit Turkuaz as their backing band. In November 2021—in the midst of a tour with Harrison and Belew—seven members of Turkuaz collectively announced their departure from the group, throwing future Remain In Light dates into question. The seven former Turkuaz members went on to form a new band, Cool Cool Cool, which debuted at Brooklyn Comes Alive in September and has served as the backing band for various 2022 Remain In Light gigs including recent performances at Los Angeles, CA’s The Wiltern and San Francisco, CA’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival.

“’Remain In Light’ is a high point in my career,” said Jerry Harrison in a statement. “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.”

“A joyful show of Talking Heads songs you know and love performed by a hot, eleven-piece ensemble including Jerry and me,” Belew added of the Remain In Light tour. “You can’t help but dance and go home with a happy smile on your face.”
