Adrian Belew

In celebration of Talking Heads' iconic 1980 record, Remain in Light, which peaked at 19 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release, Turkuaz is hitting the road with Talking Heads co-founder, Jerry Harrison, and longtime collaborator and touring guitarist, Adrian Belew, for a handful of dates this summer.

Adrian Belew is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer and guitar guru. Belew has released 20 critically acclaimed solo records and was the frontman, singer, co-writer and guitarist for progressive rock powerhouse King Crimson for 30 years. He also played alongside musicians such as David Bowie, Frank Zappa, Paul Simon, Nine Inch Nails, Tom Tom Club and Talking Heads.

On the cool evening of September 8, 2017, I entered the parking lot at Sweetwater in Fort Wayne, IN. If you do not know, Sweetwater is a musical equipment store and distribution center, along with housing recording studios, practice space, concert halls, and a large pseudo-airplane hangar in the back where they can host more significant events. This outdoor hangar (or pavilion, if you will), was my destination on this evening.
