A BRoadway return for David Byrne
After thrilling fans, and garnering much critical acclaim, earlier this year former Talking Heads frontman and all-around excellent human David Byrne graces us with a very special second Broadway engagement of his theatrical concert, American Utopia. In typical Byrne style, expect a spectacle that combines his musicianship, artistry, and delightfully off-beat nature as he presents favorites old and new in this highly acclaimed show.
As a leader of the New Wave scene in the late 70s and early '80s, Byrne has enjoyed enduring success firstly with Talking Heads and then as a solo artist, filmmaker, photographer, activist, and writer. A friend of Bowie and collaborator with Brian Eno (who featured on American Utopia's lead single "Everybody's Coming to My House") his perpetual zeal for creating has cemented him as a true auteur, an icon of the modern age.
Released in March 2018, American Utopia marked Byrne's seventh solo record and his first to hit the Billboard Album Chart #1 spot. Translated for the stage alongside Alex Timbers and Annie-B Pearson, expect a minimalist masterpiece that offers an unmissable journey into his unique life and career.
