About The Show
This March, legendary performer David Byrne will do something he hasn’t done since 2009: he will embark on a solo tour. Byrne, who fronted Hall Of Fame act Talking Heads from the group’s formation through their 1991 breakup, is also expected to release a new album to accompany the March 2018 tour.
While Byrne did hit the road in 2012 – 2013, he did so with Annie Clark, a.k.a. St. Vincent. This time around there are no co-stars. David Byrne is expected to perform Talking Heads hits such as “Burning Down the House,” “Life During Wartime” and “Psycho Killer” as well as music from a new album due in March as per the Poughkeepsie Journal. No additional details of his album or backing band for the tour have been revealed yet, but are expected to be confirmed soon. Byrne issued a note about the short run that can be read below.
David will be performing songs from his new album American Utopia, out March 9th, as well as classics from his solo career and days with the Talk Heads.
Performing with David will be an 12-piece untethered band.
“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.” - David Byrne
