DAVID BYRNE ADDS TWO NYC DATES TO WORLD TOUR: FOREST HILLS STADIUM ON SEPTEMBER 15 & KINGS THEATRE ON SEPTEMBER 17
AMERICAN UTOPIA OUT THIS FRIDAY, MARCH 9 ON TODOMUNDO/NONESUCH RECORDS
Byrne to Appear on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Release Day
For the first time since the Talking Heads legendary ‘Stop Making Sense’ tour in 1983, David Byrne will return to Forest Hills! Byrne will be performing songs from American Utopia, as well as classics from his solo career and his days with Talking Heads. A twelve-piece band will join Byrne on stage for a choreographed, “untethered” concert that he has called “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the ones that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.”
I had the good fortune to see that Talking Heads show at Forest Hills in 1983 and it remains near the top of the list of my all-time favorite live shows, so this is exciting news. Tune-Yards will open the shows in New York.
Tickets for both shows go on sale on Friday, March 9 at 10am EST at davidbyrne.com.
