Rolling into town for one night only, the former Talking Heads frontman will be performing songs from his new album American Utopia, as well as classics from his solo career and 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.

Following his only other UK show this year at Latitude, Benjamin Clementine will be Byrne’s special guest for the UK and Irish dates.  Clementine also recently completed a run of North American dates on Byrne’s tour. Byrne explains, “I was introduced to Benjamin Clementine’s music through a friend. I was floored! I asked him to perform in the 2015 Meltdown Festival I curated in London and am honored to have him join me at various stops along the American Utopia Tour!”
