David Byrne Calls Out U2

In a very recent post on his blog, Talking Head David Byrne has called out U2 on their ridiculously extravagant world tour.

In the beginning of the blog rant, David pointed out that his undersized dates are in effect being subsidized by U2’s world tour and that the promoter of these dates, and of much of the U2 tour, Live Nation, is a freakin’ global conglomerate. David did not stop there:

Those stadium shows may possibly be the most extravagant and expensive (production-wise) ever: $40 million to build the stage and, having done the math, we estimate 200 semi trucks crisscrossing Europe for the duration. It could be professional envy speaking here, but it sure looks like, well, overkill, and just a wee bit out of balance given all the starving people in Africa and all. Or maybe it’s the fact that we were booted off our Letterman spot so U2 could keep their exclusive week-long run that’s making me less than charitable? Take your pick — but thanks, guys!

Since when did David Byrne become such a badass?
