Angelique Kidjo - 3 April 2019, Burlington, VT (Flynn Center for Performing Arts)

Recommended Posts

Angelique Kidjo brought her Talking Heads "Remain In Light" tour to Burlington this evening for a sold out show at the Flynn Center.  This was one of very best shows I have seen in a very long time.  Angelique has that similar quality to her that Mavis Staples has -- you just want to be in her presence...listening...watching...and soaking up all of the love!  She's an amazing performer with a voice that possess huge range and brilliance.  The band is sensational.  The arrangements of the Talking Heads songs are superb and all of the players have extraordinary chops.  


I think this is toward the end of her touring on this album, but if she comes your way -- don't sleep on it.  Go!


Here's the set list as played:


Instrumental with Percussion Solo

Crosseyed and Painless
