David Byrne

Tue 30 Oct 2018 Doors 6:30pm

The American Utopia Tour with special guest Benjamin Clementine.

Byrne will be performing songs from his critically acclaimed album American Utopia, as well as classics from his solo career and his days with Talking Heads.  A twelve-piece band will also join Byrne on stage for an Annie-B Parson choreographed concert that he has called  “The most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.”  Annie-B Parson also choreographed the St. Vincent and David Byrne collaboration tour around Love This Giant. 

‘Already the toast of Coachella, Byrne’s new road show was a knockout.’ – David Fricke, Rolling Stone

‘One of the most inspired, intriguing, energetic and joyful concerts in recent memory.  To call it unique hardly does it justice.’ – Calgary Herald

‘It’s honestly hard to believe the amazingness of Byrne’s live show.  Byrne radiates a joy while performing that few – if any – musicians can match.’– Seattle Weekly

‘Decades into his career, Byrne remains an unpredictable, vital artist.  There aren’t many who can say that.’ – LA Weekly

‘A marvel of staging and motion that was at once utterly novel and oddly comforting, the evening proved a celebration of Byrne’s music at its most rhythmic and transcendent.’ – Chicago Tribune
