David Byrne – the visionary front man and multi-disciplinary artist behind the seminal band the Talking Heads, hits the road with the release of his first solo album in 12 years – American Utopia. Byrne will perform songs from his solo career and Talking Heads hits accompanied by a 12-piece untethered band.

Byrne on the album: “The songs are sincere—the title is not ironic. The title refers not to a specific utopia, but rather to our longing, frustration, aspirations, fears, and hopes regarding what could be possible, what else is possible. The description, the discontent and the desire—I have a feeling that is what these songs touch on.”

Byrne on the tour: “We’ll be doing some new songs… and many others that will, I assume, be familiar. I’m excited. This is the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for ‘Stop Making Sense,’ so fingers crossed.”

Every ticket purchased online for David Byrne includes a CD of the new album American Utopia, released on 3/9/18. You will receive instructions via email on how to redeem your album shortly after ticket purchase.
