HERE LIES LOVE  is the revolutionary musical experience from David Byrne and Fatboy Slim that's being called “A LIFE-GIVING, ROOF-RAISING, BOOTY-SHAKING BLAST OF PURE JOY!” (Vogue). This thrillingly immersive show retraces the astonishing journey of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos from her meteoric rise to power to her descent into infamy and the People Power Revolution. An adrenaline-fueled, 360-degree multimedia spectacle, HERE LIES LOVE  blends the passion of politics with heart-pounding dance beats for an exhilarating and completely unmissable event. Alex Timbers (Rocky, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) directs this never-seen-anything-like-it production. POWER TO THE PARTY!

Through an exhilarating series of songs written by David Byrne, with musical contributions from Fatboy Slim (Norman Cook), Songs from Here Lies Love presents the infamous Imelda Marcos meditating on events in her life, from her childhood spent in poverty and her rise to First Lady of the Philippines to her ultimate departure from the palace.

This thrilling concept album blends an incredible true story of power and politics with electrifying music and features vocals from some of music’s most innovative singers, including Cyndi Lauper, Tori Amos, Sharon Jones, Nellie McKay, Florence Welch (of Florence + The Machine), St. Vincent, Steve Earle and Allison Moorer, Martha Wainwright, Sia, Santigold and Roisin Murphy.
