Talking Heads fans will surely sigh with regret at the news that David's Byrne has cancelled his planned appearance at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans on Oct. 8, "due to a scheduling conflict." Tickets had not yet gone on sale.
Byrne's fall appearance would have been particularly welcome after his triumph at the recent Jazz and Heritage Festival 2018.
On the bright side, the Saenger has announced that the band Simple Minds is scheduled to appear on Nov. 6. Tickets go on sale on Friday (June 8) at 10 a.m. at the Saenger Theatre Box Office, ticketmaster.com, livenation.com or by calling 800-745-3000. The box office, located at 1111 Canal St., is open Mon - Fri 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. All tickets subject to applicable service charges and fees.
