Talking Heads To Reunite For ‘Stop Making Sense’ Screening


Talking Heads members David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz, and Jerry Harrison are set to reunite for the first time since their 2002 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction at an upcoming 40th anniversary celebration screening of the band’s concert film Stop Making Sense.

According to Spin, a newly restored version of the movie will be screened on September 11 at Cineplex’s Scotiabank IMAX Theatre as part of the Toronto International Film Festival. The group will also partake in a Q&A moderated by filmmaker Spike Lee.

The original Stop Making Sense was shot over three nights during four shows at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles in December 1983. It has been added to the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.

It features the group performing classics such as “Psycho Killer,” “Slippery People,” “Burning Down the House,” “Life During Wartime” and “Once in a Lifetime.”
