Why See David Byrne?
American Uptopia tour
Former Talking Heads frontman and all-around excellent human David Byrne graces us with an ambitious new tour in support of his newest record American Utopia, his first solo release in 14 years. In typical Byrne style, expect a spectacle that combines the his musicianship, artistry, and delightfully off-beat nature as he presents favorites old and new for this highly anticipated new era.
As a leader of the New Wave scene in the late 70s and early 80's Byrne has enjoyed enduring success firstly with Talking Heads and then as solo artist, filmmaker, photographer, activist and writer. A friend of Bowie and collaborator with Brian Eno (who features on American Utopia's lead single 'Everybody's Coming to My House,) his perpetual zeal for creating has cemented him as a true auteur, an icon of the modern age.
Don't miss this very good reason to be cheerful when Byrne rolls into town in 2018.
Performance date: 28 July 2018
