Former frontman of the Talking Heads
Grammy and Oscar winning composer, songwriter and singer David Byrne attained legendary status as the founder and lead singer of Talking Heads – and now he is performing at The Smith Center as part of his extensive world tour, coinciding with the March 2018 release of his hotly anticipated new album “American Utopia.”
Byrne has never ceased to shatter musical and artistic boundaries with his compositions for recording, theater, film and performance art. This Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s solo career has explored genres from new wave to pop to world rhythms.
Don’t miss this rare chance to hear Byrne perform songs from his new album, classics from his solo career, plus iconic hits from his career with Talking Heads. A 12-piece band will also join Byrne on stage for a choreographed concert that he calls “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for (Talking Heads concert film) ‘Stop Making Sense.’”
Every ticket purchased for David Byrne includes a CD of the new album American Utopia, released on 3/9/18. You’ll receive instructions via email on how to redeem your album shortly after ticket purchase.
The show also includes an opening performance by renowned solo artist Perfume Genius, personally selected by Byrne to join him on tour. Byrne hails that 'Perfume Genius’ songs are filled with unexpected sounds and deeply personal — and his costumes would have made Bowie jealous.”
