On December 18, 1980 the touring version of the Talking Heads featuring stunt guitarist Adrian Belew delivered a fantastic performance at Palaeur Arena in Rome that was filmed for broadcast on Italian TV. Taking place just two months after the release of Remain In Light, that night’s set was heavy on material from that album such as Born Under Punches, Crosseyed and Painless and The Great Curve. Using multiple cameras and a masterful director, who really enjoyed airing shots of bassist Tina Weymouth shaking her butt, the resulting footage is must-see for any Talking Heads fan.
