Talking Heads Guitarist Jerry Harrison on His 2020 ‘Remain in Light’ Anniversary Tour


When the Bonnaroo poster went online earlier this month, many were surprised to see Jerry Harrison’s name listed on the fifth line of the Friday lineup. The Talking Heads guitarist hasn’t gone on a tour of any sort since the ill-fated, David Byrne-free No Talking, Just Heads tour of 1996, instead working behind the scenes as a producer for the likes of String Cheese Incident, No Doubt and Live.

That changes this summer. Harrison will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the groundbreaking Talking Heads LP Remain in Light with a tour featuring the Brooklyn-based funk band Turkuaz and former King Crimson/David Bowie guitarist Adrian Belew, who was a key part of the Remain in Light album and tour.
