David Byrne

27 Oct 2018

Coinciding with a sold out run of UK dates, David Byrne has announced additional dates on his American Utopia World Tour, including Motorpoint Arena Cardiff on 27 October 2018.  

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. 

‘The American Utopia tour may just be the best live show of all time.’
NME 

‘The American Utopia tour is one of the most mind-blowingly meticulous and awe-inspiring productions you could ever hope to see.  It might have taken more than 30 years, but Byrne has somehow made Stop Making Sense look ordinary. Perfection.’ 
Independent   

‘From start to finish, it is joyous, life-affirming, pulsating, moving, thrilling, exhilarating.’
Financial Times
