Tune in today at 1:15pm, as David Byrne joins us to talk about Here Lies Love: The Concert For The Philippines, featuring David Byrne & the original Cast of Here Lies Love. This very special show, to benefit relief efforts in the Philippines, is taking place for one night only on Monday, November 25, at Terminal 5 in New York City (get tickets here).
Here Lies Love was first a concept album by David Byrne and Fatboy Slim, released in 2010, that tells the story of the former first lady of the Philippines, Imelda Marcos. The songs from the album were only performed live once here in New York, at Carnegie Hall. This year, after a long road to developing the theatrical version of Here Lies Love with Alex Timbers, it opened to rave reviews and was extended four times at The Public Theater. Now, mastermind and theatrical cast unite on stage for the first time, to raise money for recovery efforts that Doctors Without Borders are doing in the Philippines.
