Re: Stop Making Sense (D: Demme) - 4K restoration coming to theaters

Last September, festival curator and Goldenvoice president Paul Tollett traveled to the Toronto International Film Festival for a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Talking Heads’ seminal concert film, Stop Making Sense. For the first time in over 30 years, David Byrne sat alongside his former bandmates Jerry Harrison, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth to discuss the film project in a live panel moderated by Spike Lee.

Tollett tells Billboard he had traveled to Toronto to potentially discuss having the Talking Heads perform at Coachella and met with members of the band and their representatives, but that he “sensed there were no shows happening, so I didn’t make an offer.”

Tollett emphasized that he never broached the subject of payment with the band and ultimately went home empty-handed. He would not discuss how much he was willing to pay for a reunion show at Coachella, though a source familiar with how much artists are paid to headline the mega-festival says the gig could have earned the group as much as $10 million.

Shortly after Tollett returned from his trip, a second offer came through, this time from Live Nation. The promoter told the Talking Heads it was willing to pay the band $80 million to headline six to eight festival gigs and headlining slots, sources close to the group say. The Talking Heads ultimately rejected that offer as well. Live Nation declined to comment when asked about the offer.

Damn, imagine being so comfortable, and/or so unwilling to work with your former bandmates for a month or two, to turn down that kind of payday.

And Byrne recently did like a hundred or more shows on Broadway, so itís not like he doesnít have the stamina to perform any more or anything.

A different way to look at it is maybe they don't want to tarnish their legacy with some half-hearted shows. Even with Byrne staying in fantastic shape, there's no way he's sprinting around the set like he does in Stop Making Sense. The movie is a great capsule of a youthful time, and they might not want to be a bunch of senior citizens trying vainly to recapture that.

Disappointed it hasnít played at my local theater. They have at least one throwback film a week and often two or three.

For those that didnít want the wacky A24 packaging, it appears Australian label Madman is releasing this as well. Based on the broken hard to read page, it seems theyíre including the extras from the previous versions.
